SNL’s Kenen Thompson Wants Nothing To Do With Former Co-Star Kel Mitchell

Our Nickelodeon favorites, Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell won’t be rekindling the comical magic anytime soon. According to TMZ, Kel says that Kenan is avoiding him and does not want anything to do with him. The two became a mega sensation when they starred in Nickelodeon’s show All That and then went on to have their own spin-off, Kenan and Kel .

Kenan went on to parlay on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Kenan is working on a new pilot for NBC and TMZ decided to reach out to Kel to see if he would be joining his partner in crime.

But Kel told TMZ “The truth is Kenan does not want to be seen with me in any form of media, or even have my name mentioned around him.”

Kel goes on to say that he almost reunited with Kenan for an interview with a popular magazine, but Kenan cancelled. In spite of being avoided by Kenan, Kel says that he is not bitter and understands that Kenan wants to brand himself as a solo act. “There is no bad blood on my side, I’m not declining a reunion, I know the fans love the show and would love to see some type of appearance with us … I just don’t see that ever happening because of how he really feels.”

TMZ tried reaching out to Kenan for comment, to no avail.
