The first wife of famed actor Will Smith has denied claims made by trans actor Alexis Arquette that their marriage ended when she found him having sex with a man.
The trans actress and performer has lashed out at Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith – accusing the couple of being hypocrites and questioning their sexuality.
Arquette’s accusations follow Pinkett Smith’s announcement that she will be boycotting this year’s Oscars after no black stars were nominated.
However Smith’s first wife Sheree Fletcher, has weighed in, posting a video on Facebook saying the accusations are untrue.
Describing Arquette as “malicious and reckless and destructive,” Fletcher said she could have caused “damage” to their family.
Addressing Arquette in the video, she says: “Will was straight in 1992 and he’s straight in 2016.”
She says: “So for you to claim you have firsthand knowledge information as to why my marriage didn’t work out is completely out of line.”
“Not only is it out of line, it’s absolutely not true.
“And I’m offended and I’m hurt that someone would be so malicious and reckless and destructive and use a lie and an untruth to prove a point.”
Going on, she says that the couple decided to split up in 1995 after three years together, not because he was cheating, but because she was “unhappy”.
“I didn’t find Will in bed with a man, I didn’t find him in bed with a woman,” says Fletcher.
