Alfonso Ribeiro Doesn't Know If He'll Read Will Smith's Memoir

More Will Smith news, but this time, the news is about Alfonso Ribeiro‘s opinions on Smith’s self-titled memoir.

The memoir, Will, tells the ins and outs of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star’s life, from his turbulent, abusive childhood, to his present-day as a man reckoning with his journey to emotional maturation.

In an interview with Extra, however, Ribeiro said that he wasn't sure if he would read the memoir since he's worked with Smith intimately on the popular '90s series.

“For many, many years, people speculated about them as a family,” he said, according to People. “They are laying it out there in a way that is their truth. I don’t know if I’ll read the book because I know the people.”

Smith's book has been explosive for fleshing out the man behind the happy-go-lucky persona he created for himself and the industry.

Many of the moments in his book include his anger towards his father, falling in love on set, Jaden Smith’s request to be emancipated after the failure of After Earth, and more.

Before his book release, Smith was able to make good with Janet Hubert, who played the original Aunt Viv opposite him. The two reunited on the HBO Max special celebrating the iconic series, and since then, Hubert has been on Smith’s side, including during his debacle with the Oscars, at which he slapped Chris Rock for making a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith’s hair.
