Will Smith apologized again to comedian Chris Rock for slapping him during the 2022 Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre on March 27.

Smith previously apologized to Rock in March, but received no response.

In an emotional video posted to his Instagram page on Friday, Smith said he tried again to reach out to Rock who is pictured with girlfriend Lake Bell, 43.

"I've reached out to Chris and the message that came back is that he's not ready to talk when he is, he will reach out. So I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable and I'm here whenever you're ready to talk."

He also apologized to Rock's mother and his younger brother Tony Rock.

Smith, 53, said he now he realizes how many people he hurt after the unprovoked attack on Rock.

"I just didn't realize how many people got hurt in that moment, so I want to apologize to Chris's mother. I want to apologize. I want to apologize to Tony Rock... Tony Rock was my man and this is probably irreparable," he said.

Smith apologized to his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, whom he claimed to be defending when he stormed onstage and slapped the 57-year-old comedian for joking about Jada's bald head.

Smith said he took three months to replay the incident in his mind and to "work" on himself.

"I spent the last three months replaying and understanding the nuances and the complexities of what happened in that moment. I'm not going to try to unpack all of that right now but I can say to all of you, there is no part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave in that moment. There is no part of me that thinks that's the optimal way to handle a feeling of disrespect or insults."

Smith's career was derailed by The Slap and he was dropped by his agent.

Colleagues and friends have since distanced themselves from Smith.

"I'm human and I made a mistake and I'm trying not to think of myself as a piece of s**t," he said.

"I would say to those people I know it was confusing, I know it was shocking, but I promise you I am deeply devoted and committed to putting light and love and joy into the world. And, you know, if you hang on I promise we'll be able to be friends again."

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a COVID drug for the treatment of severe Alopecia.

Olumiant (Baricitinib) is an oral pill used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and COVID-19. Baricitinib, made by Eli Lilly and Company, is the first drug to be approved for the treatment of alopecia in the United States.

Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss as the body's immune system attacks the hair follicles as foreign invaders.

The condition made headlines after former A-list actor Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock during the 2022 Oscars for joking about actress Jada Pinkett Smith's balding hair.

Jada spoke out about her alopecia for the first time in 2018. But some skeptics suspect she is not being truthful about her diagnosis.

300,000 people in the US suffer from alopecia that causes temporary or permanent hair loss.

On Monday, the FDA announced bricitinib was approved for alopecia. Eli Lilly applied for FDA approval in January.

The drug is available in 2mg or 4mg doses.

The FDA approval was based on the results of 2 clinical trials involving 1,200 adults with severe alopecia.

After 36 weeks, the group that took 4 mg daily grew back 80 percent of their scalp hair, according to the research results. Those who took 2 mg grew back 40% of their scalp hair.

"Access to safe and effective treatment options is crucial for the significant number of Americans affected by severe alopecia," said Kendall Marcus, MD, in a press release.

Baricitinib also acts as an anti-inflammatory drug for patients diagnosed with COVID-19.

Will Smith (right) was spotted in public for the first time after slapping Chris Rock (left) at the 2022 Oscar Awards.

Smith was spotted greeting fans at a private airport in Mumbai, India, three weeks after single-handedly destroying his A-list career.

A source tells PEOPLE that Smith is in India on a spiritual cleansing journey after assaulting the comedian in front of millions of viewers on March 27.

The source said Smith traveled to India to meet with spiritual guru Jagadish "Jaggi" Vasudev, also known as Sadhguru.

According to Black Enterprise, Sadhguru is owner a non-profit spiritual foundation called Isha.

Smith and his family first met Sadhguru in 2020 in Los Angeles, MEAWW News reports.

"I wanted my family to meet spiritual people, to start interacting with people who are not hooked on the material world," he said at the time.

Smith documented one of his meetings with the 65-year-old guru at his Los Angeles residence in 2020.

In an Instagram video posted on Smith's IG Stories, Sadhguru is seen arriving to Smith's home on a motorcycle, as Will and his daughter, Willow, greet him.

"In any area of life, those who are most successful are always the most miserable people because they get to the top of the world and the top of the world doesn't feel like the top of the world," Sadhguru told Smith in the video.

"What happened yesterday they're suffering today. Are you suffering life or your memory? You're just suffering your memory," he said, adding, "What may happen tomorrow you already suffer. You're suffering your imagination!"

Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, are reportedly divorcing after 25 years of marriage.

Chris Rock, whose fame has soared to new heights since The Slap, said he won't talk about the assault unless he is paid.

He allegedly consulted with attorneys about his options.

Janelle Monáe came out as nonbinary during the season premiere of Jada Pinkett Smith's "Red Table Talk" web series on Facebook Watch.

Janelle, 36, previously came out as pansexual - a catchall phase for people who are sexually fluid and attracted to everyone.

Then, in 2020 Janelle flipped the script again and identified as nonbinary - another catchall term that is loosely defined as a person who does not identify as male, female, heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual.

MediaPunch / BACKGRID

On Wednesday, Janelle told Jada, her daughter Willow Smith and mom Adrienne Banfield Norris that she decided to come to terms with being nonbinary.

"I'm nonbinary, so I just don't see myself as a woman," she explained.

"I feel all of my energy. I feel like God is so much bigger than the 'he' or the 'she.' And if I am from God, I am everything. I am everything. But I will always, always stand with women. I will always stand with Black women. But I just see everything that I am. Beyond the binary. I feel like that opens you up to fall in love ... with any beautiful spirit."

Janelle, 36, coped with homosexual rumors by choosing not to come out as either lesbian or bisexual because of the impact that revelation might have on her deeply religious family.

"Somebody said, 'If you don't work out the things that you need to work out first before you share with the world, then you'll be working it out with the world.' That's what I didn't want to do," she said.

"So I thought I needed to have all my answers correct, I don't want to say the wrong thing. And also I hadn't had the necessary conversations with my family. I wasn't ready to have my family question my personal life or get calls from people who still look at me as Little Pumpkin — that's what they call me back home.

"My whole family is church, church, church and I'm just like, 'Well what does it meant to go against your whole family on this thing?' But I was ready. I needed to have those conversations. I didn't want to work that out with the world."

Janelle, who briefly dated actress Lupita Nyong'o, said it "took me some time" to have the nonbinary conversation with her mother and father.

"I needed to talk to my dad who was just great. My sister knew already because I've been in monogamous relationships, I've been in polyamorous relationships. But I knew that I couldn't be Little Pumpkin. I couldn't be little Janelle."

August Alsina denies rumors that he is shopping a tell-all book about his alleged "entanglement" with Jada Pinkett Smith.

According to published reports, Alsina was shopping a tell-all book after Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock at the Oscar Awards on March 27.

Paras Griffin/Getty Images

Jada, 50, used the term "entanglement" to describe her elicit affair with the 29-year-old singer.

As rumors swirled about a tell-all book, the hip-hop artist told his 6.7 million Instagram followers they need Jesus. He also encouraged them to "go find sum'n safe to do" rather than spread unfounded rumors about him.

"What would be the need to write a book about my supposed "sex life" with ANYBODY, EVER, in life?" he wrote on Instagram.

"[T]hey've written several fantasies, hypotheticals & fictions based about me on wattapad. If vou're looking for that kind of entertainment, go read those! Read the book called "HOLY BIBLE" while you're at it too," he wrote.

"[F]or whomever created and believed these lies. I'm just living my life, trying to create peace, from all the glass and broken pieces of hearts, in the life of my own and ones connected to me. Lastly; Why would one look to make that "type" of money, eating from the lowest of fruit, when God's promise is GREAT HARVEST? I'm Gods very Own, so HE makes me RICH! & Not just in spirit. Be blessed. -King SiNA' now go find sum'n safe2do 9."

August also addressed the rumor on Twitter.

"No!," he wrote in response to a tweet about the alleged book. "It would make you a messy thotBox of a supposed 'man,' for being [on Twitter] based off lies concerning where my stick goes," he said, while adding the eggplant emoji.

Old video footage has surfaced on the Internet that reveals tension between Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith behind closed doors.

The cell phone video was filmed after Jada sat down with psychotherapist and relationship expert Esther Perel.

Jada was convinced that Perel helped them resolve their relationship issues and the pain they caused each other.

"Would you say [Perel] has been instrumental in you and I defining our relationship?" Jada asks her husband.

But Will is only focused on one thing: his social media presence.

"I would say don't just start filming me without asking me," he responds.

"Oh my goodness," Jada says, "Esther, come help us again, please. I'm still dealing with foolishness."

She continues, "Would you say that she helped us heal the hurts that we caused between one another?"

But Will is not interested in Jada's psychobabble. Like most narcissists, he is only focused on his image and controlling how and when he is viewed by the public.

"My social media presence is my bread and butter," says Will, who has over 63 million followers on Instagram alone.

"So, you can't just use me for social media and not... You know, don't just start rolling. I'm standing in my house."

WENN.com

Jada faces the camera and urges her followers to watch an upcoming episode of Red Table Talk, featuring Perel as her special guest.

"Please watch Esther at the Red Table, because she's helped us a lot. Can't you tell?"

In the episode, Jada revealed to Perel that Will "felt abandoned" after she wanted more independence in their marriage, i.e., she wanted an open marriage.

Paras Griffin/Getty Images

Will was apparently fine with an open marriage - until details of her tryst with retired singer August Alsina leaked to the public.

Alsina is now taking bids on a tell-all book about their sexual escapades. Several publishing houses are said to be interested in the book.

Jada Pinkett Smith "wishes" her husband Will Smith didn't slap comedian Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscar Awards.

Chris, who was presenting an Oscar award, looked at Jada's bald head and said he couldn't wait to see G.I. Jane 2, a reference to the 1997 movie starring Demi Moore, who shaved her head for the role.

Will walked onstage and forcefully slapped Chris, before returning to his seat and yelling at the comedian to keep his wife's name out of his mouth.

An insider tells Us Weekly that Will "was in the heat of the moment and it was him overreacting" to Chris's joke about Jada's hair loss.

"He knows that, she knows that. They're in agreement that he overreacted," the unnamed insider said.

Rich Fury/VF22/Getty Images

The insider tells Us Weekly that Will didn't slap Chris to defend his wife, who allegedly suffers from alopecia.

The insider said Jada is "not a wallflower", nor "one of these women that needs protecting".

"He didn't need to do what he did," they said.

Whoopi Goldberg, who is a member of the Academy's Governor's board, believes Will Smith's career will recover from the setback. However, both Netflix and Sony have shelved Will's projects that may never see the light of day.

There is a new report that Will's talent agency, Creative Artists Agency (CAA), are divided over whether to cut ties with Will since The Slap.

Lionel Hahn/Getty Images

According to DailyMail.com, CAA bosses Bryan Lourd, Richard Lovett and Kevin Huvane, have a tough decision to make, despite one of their biggest stars winning the industry's most prestigious award.

The Daily Beast reports that a furious debate took place at CAA in the aftermath of The Slap.

Lourd reportedly wanted to drop Will Smith from CAA's roster, like they distanced themselves from former client Harvey Weinstein.

But Lovett wants to keep Will on board and ride out the storm together.

Meanwhile, CAA denies The Daily Beast's report.

Bill Maher seemed to take Chris Rock's side after Will Smith slapped the comedian during the 2022 Oscar Awards.

Smith resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (AMPAS) on Friday, nearly a week after The Slap.

It was theorized that Smith was defending his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith's honor after Rock cracked a joke about Jada's hair loss.

Jada Pinkett Smith previously announced she was diagnosed with alopecia, an autoimmune disorder characterized by shiny bald spots on the scalp.

In his monologue on "Real Time With Bill Maher", the comedian called Smith a "d*ck."

Future Publishing via Getty Images

"I'm not here to humiliate Will Smith. He gets enough of that at home," Maher joked.

Many believe that Jada psychologically manipulated Will Smith over the years, and that he finally snapped.

Maher noted that alopecia is not a deadly illness - and certainly not worth manipulating a man to ruin his own career.

"If you are so lucky in life as to have that be your medical problem, just say 'Thank God,'" Maher told Jada.

"It's not life-threatening. It's part of – for most people, 80% of men, 50% of women – it's part of aging. Aging is, trust me, I know, it's the degradation of the flesh. It happens to all of us. And you know, just put on a f**king wig like everybody else at the Oscars if it bothers you so much."

Kevin Samuels read young Willow Smith's letter to the late Tupac Shakur that recently surfaced online.

Tupac Shakur died from gunshot wounds in Las Vegas on September 13, 1996 — 4 years before Willow was born.

MTO News unearthed a letter Willow wrote to Tupac Shakur when she was just 11 years old.

In the letter, Willow begged 2Pac to come back to life so she and her mom, Jada Pinkett Smith, could be happy.

Samuels read Willow's letter aloud — but not before passing judgment on Will and Jada as parents.

WENN.com

"You could become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, squeaky clean image, women love you around the world — and this is what's going on in your house? Your wife is in love with a dead man," Samuels said in a video posted on his YouTube channel.

Samuels then read Willow's mournful letter to the deceased rap icon:

"I know you are alive someplace. I think that my mommy really misses you. Can you please come back? Can you come back so me and my mommy can be happy? I wish you were here. I really do."

"Why is Will Smith's daughter writing a letter to Tupac?" Samuels asked. "What is being said in that house to get this little girl - not writing Santa Claus, not writing the Easter Bunny, writing Tupac?

Rumor has it that Jada and Tupac had a torrid, but brief, love affair. Jada previously denied the rumors.

Jada Pinkett Smith finally responded after her husband, Will Smith assaulted comedian Chris Rock onstage during the 2022 Oscar Awards ceremony on Sunday.

Pinkett Smith took to Instagram on Tuesday - a day after Oscar winner Will Smith apologized to Rock for slapping him when he joked about Pinkett Smith's hair loss.

In an Instagram post, she wrote, "This is a season for healing and I'm here for it."

Her post comes as the uproar over Smith's shocking behavior continues to rage on social media.

Among the comedians commenting on The Slap was Steve Harvey, who suggested Smith slapped Rock onstage in front of millions of people because he knew the Oscars presenter couldn't retaliate.

"I understand defending the honor of your wife, I am that dude," Harvey said during Tuesday's Steve Harvey Morning Show. "That joke was not worthy of the reaction. If he was going to have a reaction, I think Will should have done the man thing and stepped toward him afterwards in the press room..."

MediaPunch / BACKGRID

Harvey suggested Rock would have reacted differently out of view of the cameras.

"He could've slapped Chris in the press room and see how that went," he said.

Harvey added:

"He laughed at the joke until he saw Jada's reaction... That's a Hollywood move now to go up there on national TV, slap another Black man, turn around your back and walk off, because you know he can't do nothing...

"I know he knows this, 'cause Will been in Hollywood long enough... So, now, to turn your back and walk off? You gon' slap the dude and then turn around and walk off? You know in real life that ain't the way this gon' go."

Smith apologized to Rock in an Instagram post on Monday. The disgraced actor called his behavior "unacceptable and inexcusable".

"Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive," he wrote.

"My behavior at last night's Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada's medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us."

Smith continued:

"I would like to apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions are not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness."

The Ukrainian "reporter" who was slapped by Oscar winner Will Smith in 2012 recalled the incident on Instagram last night.

Vitalii Sediuk took to Instagram after Smith slapped fire out of Chris Rock's mouth for joking about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith's hair loss.

Sediuk captioned a video: "But @willsmith practiced on me first, only to perfrom [sic] his slap at the Oscars."

Sediuk is a prankster who pretended to be a reporter on the red carpet at the Moscow, Russia premiere of Men In Black III in 2012.

As Smith walked the red carpet at the event, Sediuk asked him for a hug, but he went in for a kiss instead.

Smith was shocked and slapped the guy on the chin before security escorted him down the red carpet.

"Hey, man, what the hell is your problem?" Smith could be heard saying as he stormed off. "He tried to kiss me on my mouth."

Smith later explained the incident to David Letterman, who asked him why he "beat up a guy who was trying to hug" him.

"I didn't beat up a guy!" Smith said. "He says, 'I'm your biggest fan, can I have a hug?' So I go to give this joker a hug, and he tries to lean in and kiss me!"

Sediuk apologized to Smith, but he was later fired by a Ukraine TV station for harassing other American stars – including trying to kiss Brad Pitt, who got a restraining order against him.

The tension between Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith and Chris Rock began years before the A-list actor pimp slapped the stunned comedian in front of millions watching on national TV Sunday night.

The incident sparked debates online, as some viewers wondered if the slap was fake.

Analysts slowed down the video frame-by-frame and they claim Rock braced for the slap.

However, body language experts point to one huge clue that the slap was indeed real.

Myung Chun / L.A. Times via Getty Images

Body language expert Judi James told The Sun that Smith's initial response was a "subdued performed laughter" while Pinkett Smith's smile faded and her torso stiffened.

James said Smith's initial laughter was "subdued performed laughter" until he saw the distress on his wife's face and he reacted emotionally.

The body language expert said Rock didn't expect to be slapped by Smith.

She said: "His hands were clasped behind his back and he was laughing right up until the blow landed."

Pinkett Smith, 50, announced her struggle with hair loss in 2018. She had been the butt of Rock's jokes long before that.

While many say Smith was wrong for attacking the Oscar's presenter, insiders whisper that Pinkett Smith has "rejected [Rock's] sexual advances for years."

The bullying finally got to Smith and he put a stop to it in the only way bullies understand - through violence.

James claimed that Smith had a "smug" smile when returning to his seat after smacking the comic.

Will yelled: "Leave my wife's name out your f***ing mouth."

James said that Smith spewed profanity at Rock with "true anger" in his voice.

"Someone who works for the Oscars told me that Chris Rock was not interrupted by Will Smith at rehearsals yesterday," a source tells The Sun. "It was not supposed to happen. It was real."

Pinkett Smith, 50, announced her struggle with hair loss in 2018. She shaved her hair in 2021 after daughter, Willow Smith (2nd from left), had previously shaved her head.

Pinkett Smith frequently discussed her alopecia diagnosis in her popular Facebook series "Red Table Talk."

"My hair has been a big part of me," she said in 2018. "Taking care of my hair has been a beautiful ritual and having the choice to have hair or not. And then one day to be like, 'Oh my god, I might not have that choice anymore.'"

What is Alopecia Areata?

Alopecia areata is caused by the immune system attacking the scalp and hair follicles. The condition is characterized by round or oval smooth, shiny patches of skin on the scalp. Smooth, shiny skin means the hair follicle is destroyed and hair will never grow from the follicle.

Alopecia areata occurs when the immune system mistakes healthy scalp cells for foreign invaders and attacks the scalp and follicles.

Is There a Cure for Alopecia?

There is no cure for alopecia areata but treatment can prevent the disease from progressing to Alopecia Totalis -- total loss of all the hair on the head. A small percentage of people will also suffer total hair loss on their body. Alopecia areata is not contagious and can't spread to others in your family.

Treatment for Alopecia

Treatment for alopecia areata includes steroidal pills, creams or ointments to decrease inflammation. Minoxidil (Rogaine) is used in addition to steroidal creams. Hair growth may return in 8-12 weeks.

Natural treatment includes aromatherapy, acupuncture, microneedling, probiotics, laser therapy, vitamins like zinc and biotin, and aloe vera drinks.

Doctors also recommend applying essential oils like tea tree, rosemary, lavender, and peppermint directly to the scalp.

It's important to dilute essentials oils in a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or almond oil, to minimize irritation to the scalp.

Twitter users guessed that Smith really wanted to slap Laverne Cox for being messy and bringing up his wife's entanglement at the 2022 SAG Awards last month. But Smith played it cool and, instead, took out his frustration on Rock.

Cox made the situation worse by refusing to apologize to the Smiths the next day.
