The Word: Star magazine flames rumors on Will Smith sexuality

Star magazine is throwing their tabloid hands in the air and are just going for it. This week’s cover story isn’t shocking for what they’re writing about, but rather what they’re implying.

The headline screams “Will & Jada’s Divorce Secret: The Man Who Came Between Them!” And the magazine goes on to say that Duane Martin, Tisha Campbell-Martin’s husband, and Will Smith are just way too close, going on vacations to Miami, Trinidad and Las Vegas together. A “source” practically outs Smith:

“Jada [Pinkett Smith] can’t stand Will’s relationship with Duane. She feels like Will flaunts it in her face, hanging out with him every day and taking him on exotic vacations while she’s sitting home alone. Will and Jada’s marriage is completely fractured, and it’s only getting worse as Will spends more time away with Duane. I don’t know how much longer they can live this way. It’s only a matter of time until one of them makes the split official and files for divorce.”

Of course, there have been whispers about both Will and Jada’s sexuality for years, but no magazine has so blatantly gone there. Unless, of course, I’m just totally reading into this and it’s super hetero to go on a myriad of exotic vacations with just your best friend and not your wife?

Just say no to Bullock and Ratner

Sandra Bullock and director Brett Ratner want to make it clear that they are not hooking up, no matter what the tabloids say. In Touch reported that the pair had been seeing each other for weeks before offering up some public displays of affection at an Oscars party. But Bullock and Ratner beg to differ: “We think that it’s incredibly sad that in these times, this magazine would resort to complete fabrication, solely for financial gain,” the two say in a joint statement. “There is not a shred of accuracy in their story. We have not seen nor spoken to each other for over a decade. We both had a great time after the Oscars, just not with each other.”
