Jada on Oscar slap

Talking at the Perelman Performing Arts Center in New York City, as per Variety, Jada shared how the Oscar slap incident let her and Will Smith do ‘some really work together.’ She said, "When I was sitting at the Oscars, it clicked in. As soon as I was like, ‘Oh snap, you hit Chris?' I was like, I’m riding with you. I didn’t come into this place as your wife, but I’m leaving here as your wife because we got a storm we’re going to have to deal with together. I am not gonna leave your side.”

“In 2016, we both were exhausted — pulling at each other, power struggles — and I had to go and really learn how to love myself before I could even identify what loved looked like coming from somebody else,” she also commented about their separation. She added, "I had to really learn that about Will. I wasn’t entitled to him.”

Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on the Oscars stage in the 2022 ceremony which created a huge controversy. It all started when the comedian who was hosting, made a joke about Jada’s baldness. She suffers from alopecia. Will Smith went to the stage and slapped him in front of everyone. After he went back to his seat, Will said, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f-----g mouth.” Until this time, Will Smith and Jada were separated for years.

Jada and Will have been married since 1997. The couple shares three children--Jaden, 25, Willow, 22, and Trey, 3.
