Chris Rock Asked Me Out During My Marriage Troubles With Will Smith – Jada Pinkett Smith

Category: Entertainment News

Will Smith, Chris Rock and Jada Pinkett Smith’s history goes back way beyond the 2022 Oscars slap.

Pinkett Smith revealed in her new memoir, “Worthy,” that Rock, 58, asked her out on a date amid rumors she was divorcing Will, 55, a few years prior.

The “Girls Trip” star, 52, explained to People ahead of the book’s debut: “I think every summer all the reports would come out that me and Will were getting a divorce.”

She continued, “And this particular summer, Chris, he thought that we were getting a divorce,” she continued. “So he called me and basically he was like, ‘I’d love to take you out.’

“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 rumors.’ He was appalled,” Jada recalled. “And he profusely apologized and that was that.”

The Post has reached out to Rock’s rep for comment.

The trio’s paths crossed again when the comedian made a joke about Pinkett Smith’s clean-shaven head at the awards ceremony last year.

The “Summertime” singer then walked up to the “Everybody Hates Chris” creator on stage and smacked him in front of millions of viewers.

Subsequently, Smith was banned from attending the Academy Awards for 10 years.

Pinkett Smith looked back on the incident with the outlet, revealing she’s not spoken to Rock since the scandal.
