Jada Pinkett Smith Claims Chris Rock Asked Her Out Amid Will Smith Divorce Rumors & Pre-Oscars Slap

According to Jada Pinkett Smith, Chris Rock once asked her on a date when he thought she and Will Smith had split. The “Girls Trip” actress shared the story in her forthcoming memoir “Worthy,” according to People. She told the publication, “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. 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. And he profusely apologized and that was that.” Chris has not yet weighed in on Jada’s account, and Access Hollywood has reached out to the comedian for comment.
