  • Chris Rock’s brother claims Will Smith lied about reaching out to the comedian after slapping him at the Oscars.
  • Smith claimed he tried to call Chris Rock a few days after the incident but couldn’t get through.
  • “That wasn’t true, that wasn’t true,” said Tony Rock.

Chris Rock’s brother, Tony Rock, has claimed that Will Smith lied about reaching out to the comedian to apologize for slapping him onstage at last year’s Oscars.

During a recent appearance on BigBoyTV, Rock said that Smith, 54, did not call Chris a few days after the incident as the actor previously claimed in a YouTube video posted last July.

“That wasn’t true, that wasn’t true,” Rock said on the radio show. “I think like, two nights later, he said, ‘I reached out to Chris, and he didn’t want to talk.’ That wasn’t true.”

Tony, who Smith cast in the 2005 romantic comedy “Hitch,” added that he’s surprised Smith has never reached out to him either.

“He doesn’t owe me anything, I just thought we were better than that,” he said. “My phone number has never changed. So, I just thought I’d get a phone call one day like, ‘Ay, let’s just you and I just talk.’ It hasn’t happened, so I guess it’s not going to happen.”

Representatives for Smith did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
