In a shocking Facebook post that has since been deleted, actress Alexis Arquette claimed both Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith are secretly gay following the mother-of-two’s decision to boycott the Oscars due to lack of diversity amongst the nominees.
The 46-year-old even accused Will of paying off his first wife, Sheree Zampino, after she reportedly walked in on him with another man.
“When Jada comes out as gay and her beard husband admits his first marriage ended when she walked in to him … servicing his Sugar Daddy Benny Medina … then I will listen to them,” Alexis allegedly wrote on Tuesday, according to the Daily Mail.
In the comments section, she later clarified, “‘She’ being his FIRST Wife. Paid off, silent.” The Benny she refers to is a well-known talent manager who has worked with Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey and countless other stars.
Alexis, who is transgender, added, “Will threw a fit on the set of [‘Six Degrees of Separation’] when he was required by the scene to kiss Anthony Rapp. He persuaded the director to shoot the back of his head in frame. Blocking the non existent lip lock entirely.
“Gays have enemies. They lurk in gilded closets. Outing is healthy. You are either with or against us. You decide. Today,” Alexis concluded.
The sister of Patricia and David Arquette has yet to explain her motivation behind the rant, but she’s not the first celebrity to take aim at the couple over their Oscar remarks.
Will’s former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air costar Janet Hubert said in a video, “There’s lots of s–t going on in the world that you all don’t seem to recognize. People are dying. Our boys are being shot left and right… And you’re talking about some … actors and Oscars. It just ain’t that deep.”
