    During the episode, she did admit that the two were together for four and a half years after she got separated from Smith, however, she squashed the rumors that Will blessed their relationship.

    During the event, Chris Rock accused Will Smith of slyly plugging the event’s moniker. He said, “Will Smith practices ‘Selective Outrage’. Everybody who really knows, knows I had nothing to do with that s***. I didn’t really have ‘entanglements'”.

    Chris Rock later explained the reference which was from the 2020 episode of her show where she discussed infidelity. He said, “His wife was fucking her son’s friend. I normally would not talk about this s***… I have no idea why two talented people would do something that fucking lowdown.”

    He continued, “We’ve all been cheated on, everybody in here been cheated on. None of us has ever been interviewed by the person that cheated on us, on television… She hurt him way more than he hurt me.”
