Will Smith is working hard to regain the esteem of his peers and the public… Media Entertainment Tonight has confirmed that the star of Men in Black recently underwent a tailor-made therapy to try to calm his bloody issues, after his famous slap to Chris Rock during the Oscars, last March.

It is still necessary that Chris Rock agrees to go up as a duo on the stage. “Will’s spiritual trip to India to do yoga and meditation seems cynical and ridiculous, considering he didn’t personally apologize to the one person he assaulted in front of millions,” said a person close to the case to the American media Page Six. “And dozens of ‘namaste’ won’t change anything. “One more effort, Will…
