Will Smith and his wife are seen together for the first time since the Oscar slap

In March 2022 life changed completely for Will Smith. He was in the Oscar ceremony with his wife Jada Pinkett, since he was nominated for best actor for the movie King Richard, where he plays the father of the tennis players Venus and Serena Williams, when the presenter ChrisRock, before presenting an award, from another category, he made a joke.

His words referred to Will Smith’s wife and the fact that now she has her hair shaved, but the reason is a disease, alopecia, which causes her to lose hair. Smith did not contain his anger and annoyed by this comment, got up from his seat and slapped to Chris Rock.

The scene went around the world, gave a lot to talk about and there were positions for and against both parties. Will Smith won the award for which he was nominated that night, without reference to what happened and then, he was silent for a long time. He disappeared from the public eye and all kinds of rumors grew, including his relationship or possible separation from Jada Pinkett.

Recently, the couple was seen for the first time since that incident, four months after it happened, and they were photographed in Malibu, California on Saturday, August 13. The 53-year-old actor looks even smiling and in good spiritswearing a collared shirt and cap, while she wears a black shirt and a plaid button-up shirt tied around her waist.

In the images we see Will Smith calm and even interacting. This is also the first time seen together since last March and that Oscar slap incident. Both had been photographed since then, but always separately.

After resigning from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the American organization that promotes the film industry and that organizes and awards the Oscar, Will Smith apologized for his actions and with Chris Rock through a statement and then stayed away from the cameras.

Several of his upcoming film projects were canceled or delayed and there was speculation of a possible breakup with his wife. The news even circulated that the actor was in rehabilitation. Finally, on July 29 he shared a video on networks in which he spoke for the first time of what happened.

“It’s been a minute… In the last few months, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and working personally… They asked a lot of fair questions and I wanted to take some time to answer”, starts the clip. “I’ll tell you Chris, I apologize. My behavior was unacceptable and I’m here when you’re ready to talk,” he said referring to Chris Rock.

“I’ve spent the last three months replaying and understanding the nuances and complexities of what happened at the time. And I’m not going to try to unpack all of that now, but I can say that there’s not a part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave at the time […] I made a decision on my own based on my own experiences… Jada had nothing to do with it,” she also said.
