As for Chris, he spoke about the slap during his 2023 Netflix comedy special Chris Rock: Selective Outrage and said that “nobody was pickin’ on” Jada. And while the Red Table Talk host has stayed relatively quiet on the incident, she previously expressed her hope “that these two intelligent capable men have an opportunity to heal, talk this out, and reconcile.”
Jada and Will tied the knot in 1997 following his divorce from Sheree Zampino, with whom he shares 30-year-old son Trey Smith.
“Will called me up one day and said, ‘Hit me when you get to L.A.’ and then … click. And I was like, ‘Whoa. Okay,'” Jada told People. “And so when I got to L.A., I called him. I haven’t been able to get rid of him since.”
Over the years, the couple—who share kids Jaden Smith, 25, and Willow Smith, 22—have made headlines as they’ve navigated the ups and downs of their relationship, including what Jada called in 2020 her “entanglement” with August Alsina.
