Cardi B has leapt to the defense of Will Smith after he denied shock allegations he had sex with Duane Martin in a dressing room.
Brother Bilaal, who describes himself as the actor’s ex-personal assistant, made the shock accusation in an now viral interview with internet personality Tasha K – claiming he walked in on the pair during a sex act.
Cardi, 31, took to Instagram Live on Wednesday to praise ‘unproblematic’ Smith, 55 who she said – as a fellow Libra – was ‘getting tried’ by the accusations.
She also slammed Tasha – who she was embroiled in a defamation lawsuit with last year for airing the ‘salacious’ clip.
Cardi said: ‘I don’t like what people be doing to Will Smith, I feel Will Smith is veryunproblematic and he’s got a nice heart.

‘I found out Will Smith is a Libra, we be getting tried, we be getting tried, and when we outburst, we outburst so f*****g heavy, that we become the ones in the wrong.
‘When we throw that outburst after we care so much, we go so crazy that people be like “oh my god, what the f***, this b***h is f*****g crazy!” for real
‘And I feel like y’all doing that to Will Smith and I feel like some people never f*****g change. I’m so tired of people picking on that man.’
Laying into Tasha, 41, Cardi added: ‘Someone can put something so salacious out and not think how this is going to affect someone’s mental health.’
In January 2022 Cardi spoke out after being awarded over $4million total for winning a federal libel case against Tasha.
Tasha claimed that Cardi worked as a prostitute and contracted sexually transmitted infections, something Cardi fiercely denied.
‘After almost four years of repeated libel and slander against me, being able to walk away from this victorious brings me great happiness,’ Cardi told People at the time. ‘I appreciate Judge Ray for conducting a fair and impartial trial.’
It comes after Smith staunchly denied claims he was once caught having sex with Martin, branding the accusation ‘unequivocally false’. Meanwhile Martin doesn’t intend on publicly speaking out against the allegations, according to insiders.

Shock claims: Viral interview: Bilaal claims he once walked in on the Men In Black star and Martin engaged in a sex act in Martin’s dressing room in a chat with Tasha K
The actor will not dignify the ridiculous rumors with a response, sources told TMZ.
Bilaal claims he once walked in on the Men In Black star and Martin engaged in a sex act in Martin’s dressing room.
Smith staunchly denied the allegations, while his wife Jada Pinkett Smith revealed they plan on taking legal action.
‘I opened the door to Duane’s dressing room and that’s when I see Duane having anal sex with Will,’ Brother Bilaal said. ‘There was a couch and Will was bent over on the couch and Duane was standing up killing him, murdering him – it was murder in there.’
He also made unflattering claims about Smith’s manhood, comparing his penis to the size of a ‘pinky toe’.
A spokesperson for the Oscar-winning actor insisted the story was ‘completely fabricated’ in a statement TMZ on Tuesday, while a source told the outlet that Smith is ‘considering taking legal action.’
Martin was married to actress Tisha Campbell from 1996–2020.
The Brooklyn-born actor is best known for his stints in the series L.A.’s Finest and on the show All of Us.
Martin has worked with Smith on a number of projects, including two episodes of his former series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in 1993 and 1995, and three episodes of the 2022 reboot Bel-Air.

He’s also been seen on The Paul Reiser Show, in the films White Men Can’t Jump and Scream 2, and in the music video for the 1994 Boyz II Men hit I’ll Make Love to You.
Bilaal said that he had been working on a Hollywood set and ordered to keep ‘eyes on Will’ in the moments leading to him witnessing the actors having sexual relations.
‘I saw sexual acts – there was one I walked in on,’ said Bilaal, who was on the series to promote his forthcoming book titled Will Smith Demonic Circle.
Bilaal said looked everywhere and noticed that Smith’s car was in its right place but the actor was nowhere to be found. He said that producers on the unnamed project were repeatedly summoning him on his walkie talkie and cell phone, pressuring him to find the actor and bring him back to set.
He said he had the keys to Martin’s dressing room when he discovered the two actors engaging in sexual activity. Bilaal said he was like ‘a deer in the headlights’ and said ‘Oh s***’ when he encountered the pair.
DailyMail.com has reached out to reps for both Smith and Martin for comment on the story.
Smith’s estranged wife Jada, 52, last month revealed that they’ve been separated for seven years.
Bilaal said that Jada ‘was the woman that everybody wanted,’ and that ‘Will needed that validation to have that type of woman.’
Tasha K asked Bilaal, ‘You saw her say that Will Smith had a small d***?’
Bilaal said in response that ‘if a woman is used to something the size of a baby leg, and you come in with a pinky toe, there’s nothing you’re gonna do to please her … if she’s itching for that baby leg, she wants that baby leg.’
In the chat, Bilaal said during the latter years of their relationship, Smith was not his friend, but rather he was Smith’s friend.
Jada insisted they had plans to take legal action during an appearance on The Breakfast Club radio show on Wednesday, where she described as the allegations as untrue and ‘ridiculous.’
‘It’s ridiculous, right? And it’s nonsense. This is a person who tried to a shake down, a money shake down that didn’t work. We’re going to take legal action. Because it’s one thing to have your opinion about somebody versus just making up salacious, malicious stories. So that’s actionable, so we’re going to roll with that.’
‘So for me, unfortunately, it’s part of it,’ she added. ‘It’s not true, we’re going to take care of it. And that’s that.’
She described how the rumor allegedly started: ‘It’s based around this person’s idea that they in some way were doing business around Will’s book and that they spent money or what have you and they need to be compensated.

‘So he already tried to do that money shakedown,’ she said. ‘Will was willing to give him a certain amount or what have you and he didn’t take it so this whole situation is based on that.’
Asked why Will would give him money, she said: ‘Some business that they have. I don’t know the complete details about it but that’s about to come out because like I told you, we’re about to take legal action,’ she said.
Asked how Will was dealing with the matter, she said Will always finds the humor in situations.
‘Here’s one good thing about Will – Will’s always going to find the funny. He’s always going to find the funny!’ she said.
