Will Smith Is Seeking Therapy After Oscars Incident

During his acceptance speech, Will Smith said that love makes you do crazy things in response to him slapping Chris Rock earlier in the evening when he made a joke about Smith’s wife’s shaved head.

Will Smith is working to move forward following his high-profile Oscars altercation.


A source tells ET that the King Richard star “has been going to therapy after the Oscars incident,” in which he stormed onstage and slapped Chris Rock in the face over a joke aimed at Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

ET has reached out to Smith’s reps for comment.

The news comes nearly two weeks after Smith — who went on to win the Oscar for Best Actor shortly after the infamous slap — was spotted in public for the first time in India.


Smith arrived at a private airfield in Mumbai on April 23, where a horde of paparazzi awaited his arrival. Smith wore a white T-shirt over a muscle shirt, gray shorts over white compression pants and Jordan sneakers.

Smith smiled as he posed for pictures with a few fans, including an airport security official, before waving at the photographers and entering the airport facility.

Rock, meanwhile, made his return to the stage as part of his stand-up tour just days after the incident at the Oscars, but explained how he wasn’t yet ready to address the slap.

However, Rock joked about the altercation briefly Tuesday night after comedian Dave Chappelle was attacked onstage at the Hollywood Bowl, as he performed as part of the Netflix Is A Joke Festival.

The man, who was armed with a knife, attempted to tackle Chappelle, and then ran off, where he was cornered and apprehended by security.

Rock, who was also performing at the event, took the stage to check on Chappelle and restore calm, and offhandedly quipped, “Was that Will Smith?”
