Will Smith has come under fire from his former Fresh Prince Of Bel Air co-star JANET HUBERT - the actress has exposed the pair's feud in a new book.
The 53 year old played Smith's onscreen aunt, Vivian Banks, in the hit 1990s sitcom, but was fired in 1993 and replaced with another actress.
Hubert's departure was originally put down to her desire to spend more time with her new baby, but the actress' exit was marred with rumours of creative differences with Smith.
Hubert has now come forward to detail her time on the show in her book, Perfection Is Not A Sitcom Mom, which tells a string of unflattering tales about the Hollywood star.
Hubert claims Smith and his management would often sabotage other talented actors on the comedy series - in a bid to keep the spotlight firmly on him.
In an extract obtained by BVbuzz.com, she writes, "Smith had people around him who made sure no one outshone him. I was happy to see Don Cheadle become the quality actor that he is, and often wondered how he made it past one episode, as Hilary's boyfriend, being such a fierce actor. No one could be on 'The Tonight Show,' that first season, except Will. And I mean no one.
"I recall the incredibly talented Countess Vaughn coming to guest star. The day of table read, she was pee-in-your-pants funny, so I knew she was history - banished into the cornfield."
And Hubert insists rumours she quit the show are simply not true, calling her dismissal a "dirty deal". She adds, "The real Vivian Banks was murdered."
