Jada Pinkett Smith, has revealed that her marriage was rescued by Will Smith slapping Chris Rock during the Oscars ceremony in March 2022.
She acknowledged that in an interview with the Daily Mail that was published on Saturday.
Jada refers to the event as the “holy slap” since “so many positive things came after it.”
“After all those years trying to figure out if I would leave Will’s side, it took that slap for me to see I will never leave him,” she told the outlet. “Who knows where our relationship would be if that hadn’t happened?”
The “Matrix” star went on to reveal that she “nearly didn’t even attend” the awards show, but added she’s “glad” she did.
The “Bad Boys” actor, 55, stormed onto the stage at the 94th Academy Awards in March 2022 and punched Rock, 58, in the face after the comedian joked about Pinkett Smith’s shaved head.

Smith was barred from Academy activities for ten years after the controversial event.
