THE ACADEMY LIED

Will Smith was never asked to leave the Oscars following Sunday's slap, it was claimed, as Academy Governor Whoopi Goldberg said bosses were too scared to boot the star over fears he was 'manic' and would cause an on-camera scene. On Thursday, conflicting accounts of Sunday night's drama emerged. Sources close to the star told TMZ that Oscars producer Will Packer had directly approached Smith and told him 'We do not want you to leave,' after he slapped host Chris Rock for joking about Smith's wife Jada. But an official Academy statement claimed that Smith had in fact been asked to leave. And speaking on The View Thursday morning, Goldberg said she knew why no attempt had been made to forcibly-remove Smith over the attack. The well-connected star said Academy bosses feared Smith was having a 'manic' episode. They were also said to have feared that any attempts to forcibly remove him could have resulted in an on-camera struggle which would have beamed images of Smith scuffling with security guards around the world.
