Kenan & Kel's Kel Mitchell has claimed that his former co-star Kenan Thompson wants nothing to do with him.

Thompson is currently developing a new NBC sitcom, but Mitchell told TMZ that he will not be appearing in the series.

"Kenan does not want to be seen with me in any form of media, or even have my name mentioned around him," said the 34-year-old.

Mitchell insisted that there is "no bad blood" on his side, adding that he is "not upset" with Thompson.

"I respect his choice of wanting to make a name for himself solo," he claimed.

"I'm not declining a [Kenan & Kel] 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."

Thompson previously told Digital Spy that he "had some of the best times of [his] life" on the Kenan & Kel set, but claimed that a reunion is unlikely to happen.

"I think the show lives better where it's at, in the time it was in," he said. "I wouldn't want to taint that."

Thompson and Mitchell first appeared together on Nickelodeon sketch comedy series All That, before starring in sitcom Kenan & Kel from 1996 to 2000. The pair also shared the screen in 1997 [Nickelodeon Movie] film Good Burger.

Kenan & Kel reunion will never happen because Kenan hates Kel, according to Kel: Someone in trouble? Aww, here goes!
Don't count on ever seeing the "Kenan and Kel" reunion you always hoped for -- because Kel Mitchell tells TMZ, Kenan's dropped him like a hot potato ... and is actively avoiding him.

Kenan Thompson -- who starred with Kel in a million different Nickelodeon projects back in the day -- is currently developing a new comedy pilot with NBC, so we reached out to Kel to see if he'd be making a cameo.


Kel tells 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 says he nearly reunited with Kenan for an interview with a popular magazine but Kenan pulled out at the last minute ... and he thinks it's because Kenan's still trying to separate himself from his old co-star. - TMZ
Man, Kenan. Why you gotta be a hater like that.

You hate to see actor friends fight like this. Kenan, of course, is busy with Saturday Night Live and his soon-to-be comedy show on NBC. I don't even know what Kel is doing anymore, and I'm too lazy to search Google and find out. Post-Thanksgiving turkey coma.

The only other way to rekindle Kenan and Kel's apparent broken friendship: Good Burger 2: The Good Burgering. Re-cast Sinbad and Abe Vigoda as the second leads. Then watch as the magic takes place.
