Hubert denies rumours of 'Fresh Prince Of Bel Air' reunion with Smith

Will Smith

December 28, 2011 - Melbourne

The 'Fresh Prince Of Bel Air' cast reunion photo posted by Will Smith on his Facebook page has enraged Janet Hubert - who played his aunt Vivian in the sitcom.

And Hubert has rubbished rumours sparked by the picture, claiming that there would never be a reunion.

"There will never be a reunion ... as I will never do anything with an a**hole like Will Smith," the Daily Telegraph quoted her as telling TMZ.

"He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up. This constant reunion thing will never ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology, which he doesn't know the word," she added.

Hubert, who left the show in 1993 halfway through its six year run, has blamed Smith for her departure, claiming that she was dismissed because she had refused to bow to his ego.

"[Hubert] said once, 'I've been in the business for 10 years and this snotty-nosed punk comes along and gets a show.' No matter what, to her I'm just the AntiChrist," Smith said.

However, it has been claimed that Hubert- who was replaced by Daphne Reid after three years on the show- violated her contract when she became pregnant.

A new character Nicky Banks was created into the plot to accommodate the situation.

Hubert and Smith were reportedly at odds long before the Pregnancy.
