Published October 23rd

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith have recently taken to the latter's Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, to share exclusive gems about their relationship, including their past romances.

During one of those conversations, the Matrix actress shared that she once dated her now-husband's Fresh Prince of Bel-Air co-star Alfonso Ribeiro prior to them becoming the power couple the world reveres, today. Now, "Carlton Banks" himself is speaking out about her claim and is singing a completely different tune from the actress.

While sharing details on their romantic journey throughout the episode, Jada explained that she actually dated Ribeiro with Will starting, "I remember, you were on A Different World, and Alfonso knew everybody."

Jada then interjected, "I actually think I dated Alfonso," with Will agreeing with her words, adding, "You went on a date with Alfonso, yes. And he took you on a motorcycle or something."

After their words shocked the internet and immediately went viral, Ribeiro hopped on Twitter to refute her claim, clarifying that she was mistaken about their outing, at the time.

"Sorry Jada. Your memory is a little off," he tweeted in response to the actress' tweet about her comments. "We went to lunch with your family when we both guest starred on A Different World the year before you became a regular."

Apologetic for assuming, Jada responded to his tweet, "My fault Alf... I thought it was a date."

Twitter: the new clarifyer of all rumors.
