Hollywood is still reeling from the most recent Academy Awards.
Will Smith became infamous in one shocking instant.
And Smith’s Oscar meltdown was even more devastating than you thought.
Will Smith’s stunning attack on comedian Chris Rock in the middle of the Academy Awards is still making headlines.
Rock told a mild joke about Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith, and Smith marched onstage and slapped the comedian on live television.
The incident was so shocking, some even wondered if it was staged.
But the event was very real, and so has been the reaction.
A source told Entertainment Tonight that Smith “is aware of the backlash that has surfaced, especially from the comedian community…Though Will’s actions have caused embarrassment for some of his friends and peers, his close friends are still privately texting him and trying to be there for him…They believe there is a lot of anger in Will and his incident at the Oscars is just one way that it came out…They think he needs to take a break from acting, go to therapy, and sort out his issues.”
It seems that much of Smith’s anger relates to marital issues he’s been having with his wife for years.
Jada has put all of their private business out in public for years, and many believe the Oscar slap was the culmination of that family drama.
Video resurfaced of Smith being perturbed at his wife for filming him early in the morning without his permission in order to promote an episode of her tell-all podcast.

In a separate episode, Jada admitted that she never wanted to marry Smith at all.
Adding insult to injury, August Alsina, the 29-year-old rapper who had an affair with Jada, is writing a book about their affair.
A source told the UK Sun, “August is getting ready to sign a big money book deal which will detail his romantic liaisons with Jada…He has always maintained that Will gave him permission to sleep with Jada, something they have publicly denied…August will go into detail about his time with Jada and will also speak about how he spent time living in homes owned by Will when he was away filming. There are several publishers bidding for the books and August is lining up the best deal. He knows there are a lot of people fascinated by his story and is happy to tell it.”
Smith is being dragged through a nightmare, and the slap was just the tip of the iceberg.
