Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith had a laugh about a recent rumor concerning his sexuality.

Gossip about Will and actor Duane Martin having a relationship sprouted on social media recently, causing his representatives to release a statement saying, “This story is completely fabricated and the claim is unequivocally false,” according to PEOPLE.

The allegations were started by Brother Bilal on the “Unwine with Tasha K” podcast, when he claimed to have seen Martin and Will Smith engaged in an adult situation.

Jada Pinkett Smith, then took the rumors head on while appearing on “The Breakfast Club,” telling the hosts, “Let me just say this: It’s ridiculous, right? And it’s nonsense.”

Pinkett Smith said her and Will “laughed about it.”

“You have to because it’s absolutely ridiculous, you know what I’m saying? So all you have is, you just gotta laugh about it. And, it’s unfortunate,” she said.

Pinkett Smith continued, saying Brother Bilal had "tried a shakedown, a money shakedown, that didn’t work. We’re gonna 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 gon' roll with that."
