It’s been several months since Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Academy Awards and, in the time since it happened, a plethora of people have spoken out on the matter. However, Smith himself has been keeping a low profile since the night the polarizing moment occurred. Updates on the star’s status have mostly come by way of insiders for the most part. Though he’s stayed under the radar, he’s apparently spoken to a couple of his colleagues over the past few months. Two of his King Richard co-stars have reached out since, and they’ve provided an update on where the actor is emotionally. 

Saniyya Sidney and Mikayla Bartholomew played Venus Williams and Tunde Price, respectively, in last year’s King Richard. Will Smith played their on-screen dad, Richard Williams and, judging by their interactions during the press tour last year, the stars became close behind the scenes. In the aftermath of the slap, that relationship continues, as the two revealed during their appearance at the BET Awards that they’ve spoken with Smith. And according to Bartholomew, the Oscar winner is in good spirits:

Every time I talk to him, he always says everything is in divine splendor, ya know, so he’s good. It’s always good to chat with him.
