Will Smith was recently promoting his autobiography Will at London's Savoy Theatre and during this chat he spoke about having money problems before being on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
"I'm not sure what the government is like with taxes in the U.K., but in the U.S. they take it seriously," said Will, while sitting next to Idris Elba. "So Uncle Sam wanted his money. I didn't forget—I just didn't pay ... [I had] to sell everything, and I knew whatever my new life was going to be I could feel it was going to be in Los Angeles ... So, I borrowed $10,000 from a friend of mine who was a purveyor of neighborhood pharmaceuticals ... I borrowed $10,000 and I moved to Los Angeles."
Are you surprised to hear that Will, who has such a clean cut image, borrowed money from a drug dealer?
