Jada Pinkett Smith has been open about her alopecia diagnosis, describing the terrifying experience of pulling out clumps of her hair in the shower on "Red Table Talk" back in 2018. She's also been open about how difficult and emotional it has been to deal with the hair loss condition, and why it eventually led to her decision to keep her head totally shaved.
According to an unnamed friend of Chris Rock's speaking to TMZ, the comedian had no idea about the alopecia. The friend further stated that Rock "doesn't have a mean bone in his body" and was pretty stunned by the smack.
TMZ reported that even though Diddy has claimed that Rock and Will Smith are all good now, the two haven't actually spoken since the already infamous on-stage moment. Rock hasn't spoken publicly about the incident yet, so we can't absolutely confirm or deny either the anonymous friend or Diddy's statements.
