After a controversial incident that went viral, a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is defending her ex-husband.
Will Smith, the ex-husband of Sheree Zampinos, made headlines after he slapped Chris Rock during the 94th Academy Awards in March 2022. Rock, who was hosting the program, joked about Smiths wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, and that didnt sit well with the Men in Black actor.
Will walked up on stage, confronted Rock, and punched him across the face. The encounter between the two actors became viral in July 2022. In a 6-minute long YouTube video, Will apologized publicly to Rock.
Chris, my behavior was unacceptable, and I'm here whenever you're ready to talk, as Will said in the video.
Despite the controversies, Zampino has stated that she continues to stand behind her ex.
Here's all you need to know about it:
Zampino Said Will Is Allowed to Be Human
Sheree Zampino (@shereezampino) has shared a post on her website.
For the 12th season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Zampino has joined the cast as a friend of Garcelle Beauvais. Some viewers have enjoyed getting to know her better, and she married Will Smith from 1992 to 1995. The two have a child together, and Trey Smith is 29 years old.
Zampino spoke about Will in an interview with Page Six.
Will has been performing since he was 16 years old, according to the outlet. He does it with so much love, grace, and joy. He is always available to his followers. They want to see him. He signs autographs. He makes a connection. He loves people. He never complains, she said.
She then discussed the altercation between Will and Rock.
Zampino said he has apologized and accepted responsibility for his actions. I wouldnt ask. If it's something he wants to express, he can. But he has a family that loves him, rides him for him, and supports him. He's allowed to be human, she said.
Zampino never discussed her dad slapping rock with her son.
Sheree Zampino (@shereezampino) has shared a post.
In an interview with Fox News, Zampino and her son never had a conversation about what happened between Will and Rock.
Trey kept things simple and to the point, deciding not to continue talking about the situation.
He said, "Daddy is wonderful, Mom." That was the conclusion of their conversation. Zampino went on to explain how she approaches things with her son, and it seems to work very well for them.
Is it possible to be good? I want to know, is everyone decent? Thats how Ive always been with him. Ive never interrogated him, she said, and I dont ask him a thousand questions. Thats a bad parenting tactic when the child is with the other [parent] and returns, and you ask them a zillion questions.
