Jada Pinkett Smith reveals Chris Rock asked her out
In an interview with People, Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that during a time when rumours had spread that she and Will Smith were getting a divorce, Chris Rock tried his luck with her.
The actress shared that the rumours are cooked up at least every summer when on one particular summer, Chris Rock seemed to believe the allegations and asked Jada out on a date:
"He thought that we were getting a divorce, so he called me and basically he was like, ‘I'd love to take you out.’ "
She went on:
"And I was like, ‘What do you mean?’ He was like, ‘Well, aren't you and Will getting a divorce?’ I was like, ‘No. Chris, those are just rumours.’ He was appalled and profusely apologised and that was that."
Social media weighs in on Jada's revelation
Online users were taken aback by Jada's story and shared their thoughts, with many saying the 2022 Oscars slap was justified:
"Chris Rock totally deserved that slap if you ask me."
"Now we know the real reason behind the slap."

"So the slap has greater meaning? That was a slap of vengeance!"
"So he decided to make fun of her in front of millions of people on live television… men are scary, bye."
