Karyn Parsons Rejected Dating Will Smith Will Smith has revealed that his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air costar Karyn Parsons rejected dating him. He also says he is happy that she did. He said in his book, “Not only did Karyn beat out a slew of Hollywood big hitters to win her role, but she was smart enough to tell me ‘hell no’ when I tried to explain we were not really cousins, so it would be fine if we dated.” The reason why? Because she said it would mess up their working relationship. He added, “She knew better than that – good call, K.P.” Do you think Will and Karyn would make a cute couple?
