A lot is happening in the Will Smith family after he landed a slap on Chris Rock’s face for joking about his wife Jada Pinkett’s bald head at the Oscars. Now, what’s happening after the Oscars slap brouhaha?
According to a source via Us Weekly, Will Smith and his wife Jada are committing to therapy and trying to salvage the best.
“Right now they’re figuring things out, committing to therapy together and trying to salvage the best of a pretty horrible situation.”
A recap of what led to this messy situation Will Smith has found himself in;
Late last month, Smith, 53, slapped Rock, 57, when he made a joke about Pinkett Smith, 50, at the 94th annual Academy Awards. While presenting an award, the comedian commented on the Girls Trip star’s shaved head. Pinkett Smith, for her part, has previously spoken about her alopecia condition
“Will Smith just smacked the s—t out of me,” the South Carolina native said in censored footage that later circulated online. As Smith returned to his seat, he was heard yelling at Rock to “keep my wife’s name out your f—king mouth.”
One day after the incident, the I Am Legend star took to social media to apologize directly for his “unacceptable and inexcusable” actions. “I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness,” he wrote via Instagram
The Philadelphia native added: “I would also like to apologize to The Academy, the producers of the show, all the attendees and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologize to the Williams Family and my King Richard Family. I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us.”
Pinkett Smith, for her part, seemingly reacted to the incident when she shared an Instagram quote, which read, “This is a season for healing and I’m here for it.”
Reports are that Will doesn’t want to do any more therapy with Jada’s spiritual advisers because they always take her side, but he seems to be powerless against her.
