The beef between Will Smith and Chris Rock hasn't been settled yet, sources close to the situation told TMZ. In fact, the two actor-comedians have not spoken to one another since the shocking on-stage Oscars slap that stunned the audience and viewers across the globe.

The new revelation comes after Diddy told Page Six that the incident was "over" and handled.

According to TMZ's report, Chris returned to his dressing room after presenting the award for Best Documentary and hasn't communicated with Will since. A close friend of Chris who attended the awards told the outlet that before the slapping incident, Chris hadn't planned to stay at the awards long. In fact, the plan was for him to leave shortly afterwards anyway, and according to the friend, that's just what he did.

The source added that Chris was left "shaken and bewildered" by the move, that came after the comedian referenced Jada Pinkett-Smith's hair. While presenting the award, Chris said he couldn't wait to see Jada in the fictional "G.I. Jane 2" –– making a snub at her closely-shaven hair.

Will walked on stage, slapping Chris in the mouth after the remark. Jada has come out publicly, detailing her journey with alopecia –– a medical condition that causes hair loss.

The source to Chris Rock said the comedian had no idea Jada had the condition and defended Rock by stating he "doesn't have a mean bone in his body."
