According to Diddy, Will Smith and Chris Rock settled their differences after the Best Actor winner walked on stage and slapped the comedian for a joke he made about Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
It's nothing but "love" between the stars, Diddy told Page Six,.
“That’s not a problem. That’s over. I can confirm that,” Diddy said. “It’s all love. They’re brothers.”
Rock did not provide any further details, but he declined to file a police report over the incident. Diddy appeared on stage later to play peacemaker during the ceremony. “Will and Chris, we’re gonna solve that like family at the Gold Party,” he said.
Smith slapped Rock after he told a joke about Jada's hair. Jada previously spoke out about her decision to shave her head last year, stating it was because she had been dealing with alopecia.
“Wow, Will Smith just smacked the shit out of me,” Rock said after the slap, to which Smith responded, “Keep my wife’s name out your fucking moment.” It took a moment for the comedian to collect himself, after which he added, “That was the greatest night in the history of television.”
