Police were called to Will Smith’s home for suspected drone activity.
The 53-year-old actor shares a Los Angeles mansion with his 50-year-old wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and authorities were alerted to a drone believed to be flying over the luxurious property on Tuesday (3/29/22), but were unable to locate anything suspicious.
Local Lost Hills Station Police said in a statement obtained by ETOnline, “Yesterday, 3/29/22, at approximately 2:30 p.m., Deputies responded to the residence of Will and Jada Smith in Calabasas, LA regarding a drone flying over the property. When they arrived they contacted private security at the scene and searched the area for the drone/operator, they were unable to locate either. whether Will or Jada Smith were home at the time of the incident.
It comes just days after Will punched comedian Chris Rock – who made a joke about Jada’s clean-shaven look she sports following alopecia – on the same night he collected his Best Actor statuette for his role in ‘King Richard’ but the two incidents are believed to be unrelated, according to ETOnline.
The alleged drone incident comes shortly after the ‘Men in Black’ star – whose actions at the ceremony are under review by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences – issued an apology to Chris on his Instagram.
He wrote: “Violence in any form is toxic and destructive. My behavior at the Oscars last night was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s condition was too much. for me. to bear and I reacted emotionally. I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of place and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
