Jada Pinkett Says Chris Rock Asked Her Out
Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that Chris Rock had asked her out on a date while she was still married to Will Smith. Jada told People that when Chris shared his dream with her, she reminded him that she was still married to Will.

And this summer, Chris, he assumed that we were getting divorced. So he called and said, basically, ‘I’d love to take you out.’ ‘What do you mean?’ I wondered. ‘Well, aren’t you and Will getting a divorce?’ he said. ‘No,’ I said.
The incident certainly occurred prior to the iconic Oscar slap incident. In her interview, Jada also revealed further information about the incident and acknowledged that she hasn’t spoken to Chris since.

Will Smith, Jada’s husband, rushed up to the stage at the Oscars 2022 and slapped presenter Chris Rock for commenting on Jada’s buzz cut. Jada is afflicted with alopecia. Chris, she said, came downstage after the incident to speak with her.
“Chris came down to the stage’s edge and apologised to me. ‘I didn’t mean any harm,’ he claimed. ‘I can’t talk about this right now, Chris,’ I said. ‘This is some s—.’ I assumed this was about the Oscars in 2016 and… their stuff from before I ever got into the picture in the late ’80s. ‘I’ll leave it up to Will and Chris, but I know they’ve got their own stuff,’ she said.

Jada Pinkett Smith’s interview didn’t end with Chris Rock asking her out on a date. She also revealed that Will Smith and her marriage have struck rock bottom, and the couple has been living different lifestyles for the past 7 years. The couple lives apart and is not legally divorced, but their marriage is over.
Jada Pinkett Smith claimed that their marriage had been troubled for a long time, but by 2016, they were simply exhausted of trying to address their problems.
She went on to say that by that point, the two had left their imagined country and recognised each other for who they truly were, and the reality wasn’t quite ideal. Jada went on to say: “I think we were each kind of stuck in our fantasies about what the other should be,”
