Will Smith Kicks Martin Lawrence To The Curb Over Ratchet Family?by Jacky Jasper
Now, Everyday He’s Hustlin’?
HSK Exclusive - If Martin Lawrence had his way, his joint sitcom with Kelsey Grammer would already be on the air — like, yesterday. The problem is sources say conversations to get the show picked up – between Grammer’s company Gramnet (under Viacom) and CBS – have only just begun.
Insiders say Martin wasn’t exactly planning to do the Lionsgate TV show, but since Will Smith refused to do ‘Bad Boys 3′ with him (and a lack of movie scripts being thrown his way) the comedian is said to have had no choice but to return to television.
Here’s the drop:
“Martin needs the money so he gotta go back to television.
Will Smith refuses to make Bad Boy 3 with him because Will doesn’t want to deal with Martin’s ratchet family. Martin’s family burned a lot of bridges for him in Hollywood. Now he’s pushing hard to get his sitcom with Kelsey picked up by CBS.”
