Jada Pinkett Smith thinks Chris Rock is “obsessed” with her, with a source insisting that’s why he’s made fun of her for nearly a decade
The slap-around-the-world feud has been thrust back into the headlines after Rock addressed Will Smith’s Oscar assault on his new Netflix special, Chris Rock: Selective Outrage. The comedian also made sure to target Jada — again.
“Jada has had no part in all of this other than being heckled. Chris is obsessed with her and that’s been going on for almost 30 years.”
a source told People.
The insider pointed out the location where Chris recorded the Netflix show, saying, “Look where he chose to film his Netflix special. Her hometown [of Baltimore]. Obsessed.”
The source insisted that Jada and Chris’ beef stems from nearly a decade ago when Pinkett backed the “#OscarsSoWhite” movement. It was also the year that Will was snubbed for the Best Actor nomination for his performance in Concussion.
“Years ago, his wife said I should quit the Oscars. I shouldn’t host ‘cause her man didn’t get nominated for Concussion. And then he gives me a f—— concussion,” Chris joked in his specia
But the insider scoffed at the comedian’s allegations, insisting, “She never asked Chris to not host the Oscars ever. She publicly said in a Facebook post at the time Chris would be a great Oscars host and is perfect for the job.”
The source also told the outlet that they “were shocked at how many times Chris used the word b—-h in referring to Jada.”
However, the actress is unfazed in light of Rock’s jabs. “Right now Jada is focused on her book that will come out this year,” they said.
