An Entertainment Tonight report has now revealed that the entertainer has been seeking therapy. According to ET, the King Richard star "has been in therapy since the Oscars incident," in which he slapped Chris Rock on stage after the comedian made a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith. On April 23, Smith showed up at a private airfield in Mumbai, where paps got a glimpse of him.

Jada Pinkett Smith, his wife, returned with the fifth season of her popular talk show Red Table Talk, in which she stated that the family has been focusing on "deep healing." Chris Rock, on the other hand, has stated that he will not address the incident and that he is still processing it after making his first few appearances on this comedy show. Despite the fact that On Tuesday night, Rock made a joke about the Oscars incident after comedian Dave Chappelle was attacked onstage at the Hollywood Bowl as part of the Netflix Is A Joke Festival. While Chapelle fled the stage after being approached by a man wielding a knife, Rock, who was also performing at the event, took the stage to check on Chappelle.

US Reporter Sharon Carpenter shared his account of the incident on social media saying “He was finishing up his performance when a man ran on-stage and lunged at him knocking him to the floor. Security and his entourage then cornered the man as Dave joked about him getting ‘stomped' backstage.”
