Janet Hubert is setting the record straight on her ‘beef’ with Will Smith once and for all.

“Janet Hubert was never difficult on that set. Janet Hubert was so professional, it wasn’t even funny,” she said of her time on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air during an appearance on The Real.

“I think Will simply needed to win and I think sometimes when you get caught up in a lie and those things never happened. She never left the set. I never left the set. We got along great.”

She then continued, “I think he was young and he was inexperienced and I think he simply had to win. And sometimes when you get caught up in a lie and I went back to them in 2009 I and said, “Please I need you to clear my name.”

Asked whether or not she was able to speak to Smith directly, she said, “I spoke to J.L. when my dad died and when my brother died and I begged them. I said, ‘I have a family. I need you to tell the world that this stuff didn’t happen.’ And I was waiting in my heart thinking somebody would come to me one day and help me, but they didn’t.

“Because I’ve been trained as a young woman, as when I was a young woman, you always have your dignity and you don’t just go ugh, you know? But I realize that that redemption was not going to come unless I did it myself.”
