Will Smith and Jada Pinket put on a united front as they went out together in public for the first time since the Oscars slap – and her husband led the charge with a smile.
The couple were spotted leaving Nobu in Malibu on Saturday afternoon, with what appeared to be a manager following them. Will was ahead of Jada – dressed in a casual outfit and cap – who was following close behind… apparently grabbing his shirt or pants.
It looks like she may have grabbed his hand in some of these snaps…but on closer inspection, you can see she’s holding him by his clothes and letting him guide her to their car.
Eventually, they got into their vehicle and drove off together…with WS at the wheel. Before that, however, Will actually sent a peace sign to a bystander who called his name. So, yeah… it looks like he’s still in good spirits — this after his recent apology video.
You’ll recall… Will explained his actions that night, saying Jada’s eye-rolling didn’t fire him up and make him storm the stage – looks like it was just bad blood accumulated between the Smiths and Chris Rock this led there …more internal trauma that Will has from his past.
He said he wanted to speak with Chris – but noted that CR didn’t agree with him on this…and maybe not in the long run. In the meantime, Will goes on with his life, just like Jada.
The fact that the dude is out in the daylight – in Los Angeles, no less – says a lot about where he is personally…and it seems to be in a much better place.
Don’t expect to see him at any awards shows, however, in the near future.
