Sources say Chris Rock is not interested in talking to Will Smith

Will Smith may have released an apology video for the slaps Chris Rock at the Oscars in March, but any chance of telling the comedian that he’s sorry in person seems very unlikely.

Smith released an almost six-minute video Friday, in which he said he was “deeply remorseful” for his actions and that he had “thought and worked on himself a lot” over the past few months.

He also said he reached out to The Rock, who reportedly said he would get in touch when he was ready.

“So I’ll tell you Chris, I’m sorry to you,” Smith said in the video. “My behavior was unacceptable and I’m here when you’re ready to talk.”

Sources told that Rock has reportedly “walked away” from the televised incident and has no reason to discuss it with Smith.

“Chris doesn’t need to be told,” an insider told “This is clearly something that worries Will more than Chris. Will needs to sort out his problems. Chris is fine.”

But while The Rock doesn’t feel obligated to talk to Smith about the slap, he doesn’t seem to mind talking about it on stage.

“If everyone claims that they are victims, then no one will hear the real victims. I even got slapped by Suge Smith,” he told the crowd, referring to Death Row Records co-founder Marion “Suge” Knight, who is serving a 28-year sentence for manslaughter. “I went to work the next day; I have children”.
