Jada Pinkett Smith reveals Chris Rock asked her out amid marriage troubles with Will Smith

American actress, TV host, and producer Jada Pinkett Smith has disclosed in her latest memoir, “Worthy,” that Chris Rock, invited her on a date.

According to the controversial mother of two, Rocks’ invitation came during the period when rumors circulated that she was going through a divorce from estranged husband, Will Smith, a few years before the Oscars incident.

Well, it seems the drama involving Will Smith, 55, Chris Rock, 58 and Jada Pinkett Smith, 52 appears to extend far beyond the well-known Oscars incident in 2022.

Speaking to People Magazine ahead of  her book’s debut said:

“I think every summer all the reports would come out that me and Will were getting a divorce.”

“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.

⁵“And he profusely apol=ogized and that was that.”

In 2022, Rock made a joke about Pinkett Smith’s clean-shaven head at the Oscars awards ceremony last year.

At the event, Rock laughed while presenting an award, saying that he couldn’t wait to see the actress in “G.I. Jane 2.”

Will Smith, who was seated beside his wife, subsequently approached the stage and struck Rock in front of a global audience of millions.

Subsequently, Smith received a 10-year ban from attending the Academy Awards.

Pinkett Smith, speaking to People, mentioned that she hasn’t had any communication with Chris Rock since the controversy.

“[Do I have] any desire to talk to Chris? Here’s my desire: I just hope that all the misunderstanding around this can be cleared up and that there can be peace,” she sighed.

Jada who suffers from the hair loss condition alopecia, claimed she wasn’t that offended by the comedian’s comments at the time.

“I mean, that’s what comedians do,” she stated. “I would just have to say that I am not really here to make any judgment on how people decide to express themselves and express their art.”

“I’ll say that several times I’ve had my feelings hurt, for sure. I’ve had my feelings hurt a lot by Chris. But at the end of the day, too, being in the spotlight, it comes with the territory.”
