Will Smiths LA mansion visited by police after slapping Chris Rock at Oscars
Los Angeles police were pictured arriving at the gates of Will Smith’s Calabasas residence on Tuesday afternoon a mere couple of days after the actor slapped Chris Rock onstage at the Oscars.
The 53 year old has taken over headlines since he slapped comedian Chris, with much talk spreading on whether or not there will be legal consequences for his actions.
This visit from police did not relate to Sunday night’s incident, however as they were called upon for a different reason by Will himself, a public information officer confirmed.
They revealed to The Sun that the actor had recounted to them that a drone had been flying over his Calabasas mansion shared with his family, which spans over 25,000 square feet upon an impressive 150 acres of land.
At 2.40pm, a marked patrol car containing Los Angeles Country Sheriffs was seen driving up to the multi-million dollar property after Will’s 911 call to check on the drone, however it had disappeared by the time they arrived.
Will’s police visit came less than 48 hours after he shockingly slapped Chris live onstage at the Oscars after the comedian made a joke about his wife Jada-Pinkett Smith’s shaved head making a reference to the movie GI Jane.
Jada has publicly confessed that she suffers with alopecia, a hair loss disease, and so husband Will didn’t take kindly at all to Chris’ insensitive comparison and retaliated seconds later.
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed in a statement following the physical attack that Chris has not filed a police report against Will saying: "The incident involved one individual slapping another. The individual involved has declined to file a police report.
"If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.
Will since openly apologised to Chris on his Instagram page as he described his behaviour on Sunday as “unacceptable” and said that he is a “work in progress”.
Moments after the slap, the actor went on to win his first Best Actor Academy Award for his role as Richard Williams, father of Serena and Venus Williams, in film King Richard and received a standing ovation in the Dolby Theatre where the ceremony was held.
A day after the incident an official spokesperson for the Academy addressed the slap at the event saying: “The Academy condemns the actions of Mr Smith at last night's show.
“We have officially started a formal review around the incident and will explore further action and consequences in accordance with our Bylaws, Standards of Conduct and California law."
