Jada Pinkett Smith says that when her husband, Will, struck Chris Rock at the 2021 Academy Awards, that’s the moment when she realized she would never divorce him.

The “I Am Legend” actor headed to the stage and struck the comedian after he mocked his wife’s alopecia in front of their peers, colleagues and friends. As he did so, Smith infamously shouted, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f**king mouth!”

By this point, the pair were already romantically separated and living different lives although they remained married to each other. Pinkett Smith has previously said she will never divorce Will Smith and once again reinforced that commitment.

“After all those years trying to figure out if I would leave Will’s side,” Pinkett Smith said to the Daily Mail. “It took that slap for me to see I will never leave him.

“Who knows where our relationship would be if that hadn’t happened? I call it the “holy slap” now because so many positive things came after it, that moment of the s**t hitting the fan is when you see where you really are.”

The couple’s well-documented and controversial marriage regularly attracts the attention of fans and the media, sometimes due to the frankly bizarre stories that emerge of their relationship and it shows no sign of going away anytime soon.

Smith feels his emotions towards Jada again

Smith generally attracts the vote of sympathy from observers of the marriage, with people feeling sorry for how his wife acts in public whilst he tends to keep his private life to himself more.

That’s what made his Oscars slap so shocking but it was an emotional outburst that drew them slightly closer together and following the release of his wife’s memoir, “Worthy”, he says he is now emotionally available to her again.

“When you’ve been with someone for more than half of your life,” Smith wrote for the New York Times. “A sort of emotional blindness sets in.

“And you can all too easily lose your sensitivity to their hidden nuances and subtle beauties.”
