Duane Martin’s Xen Lounge Sponsored By Will Smith?by Jacky Jasper
Xen Between Boyzzz?
HSK Exclusive - Studio City’s Xen Restaurant and Lounge may serve as much more than just an ‘off the Hollywood grid’ hot spot where celebs can lay low.
Industry insiders exclusively tell HSK what’s behind the “in the cut hang-out” mirrors it’s history – revealing the Ventura Boulevard establishment was a gift from Will Smith to the actor’s longtime BFF, Duane Martin.
You may remember Xen Lounge opened its doors just last month, before reports credited Duane Martin and wife Tisha Campbell for launching the business. Now, not only is Xen being dubbed Will Smith’s display of affection for Martin, but sources say it’s also a place where endless amounts of male-bonding, and lesbian liaisons, goes down. Don’t believe me.. Ask Evan Ross or Jason Lee!
Here’s the drop:
“Yo! Will Smith bought his boyfriend, Duane Martin, a restaurant. They’re trying to act slick by saying Will and Duane opened the spot together.
Hey, some dudes take their girl’s to Tiffany’s, others buy cars, houses, and furs – But, Will don’t play around! He bought his boo an entire restaurant!”
