From Jada Pinkett Smith’s recent Instagram post, to Jim Carrey’s comments on the “spineless” act, updates on Sunday’s Academy Awards keep on coming.

While MJ and the gang were taking opinions from callers on who they thought was in the wrong, a woman called in claiming to be Will Smith’s cousin. She chose not to identify her name, but she did say she lived in the Tampa Bay area.

The anonymous caller told MJ and the crew that her father and Will Smith’s grandfather are brothers. “[The smack] was a long time coming,” the caller said.

“Anonymous” came to Jada’s defense about her hair issues. “He should have known better,” the caller said. “It would have been different if she had to cut her hair like Demi Moore did for the role.” However, with Alopecia, Jada doesn’t have the choice.

When MJ asked the self-proclaimed cousin of Will Smith about the claims of Rock not knowing about Jada’s condition, she replied “I don’t believe that.”

You can watch the full phone interview below. (Playback will begin at 2:16:02, the start of the phone call with “Anonymous.”)
