Jada Pinkett Smith ‘wishes’ Will Smith ‘didn’t get physical’ with Chris Rock, but isn’t ‘angry with’ her husband after he slapped comedian Chris Rock for making a joke about her at the Oscars, a source claims.
Smith smacked the comedian in the face after he made a joke about his wife’s hair loss. Pinkett Smith has been open about her struggle with alopecia, a disease which often causes bald spots.
The couple is apparently ‘in agreement’ that Smith ‘overreacted’ and are ‘all about their family and their kids’ as Whoopi Goldberg, a governor of the Academy Awards, yesterday said she doesn’t believe his career will be marred by the slap.
Speaking to Us Weekly, a unnamed insider said: ‘It was in the heat of the moment and it was him overreacting.
‘He knows that, she knows that. They’re in agreement that he overreacted.’
They also alleged that Pinkett Smith is ‘not a wallflower’, nor ‘one of these women that needs protecting’.
‘He didn’t need to do what he did,’ they added.
The US Weekly source also said that that the couple ‘are very much protected in their own lives and do the absolute best they can to protect their loved ones’.
