Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith Confirms Relationship With August Alsina
Will Smith's wife Jada Pinkett Smith admits having an affair with R&B artist August Alsina
Jade Pinkett Smith and husband Will Smith appeared on a new episode of her “Red Table Talk” web series. Jada confirmed that she was in a relationship with the R&B artist August Alsina. She added that it happened when she and Smith were separated several years ago.
This revelation comes after Alsina’s claims that Will Smith gave him a ‘blessing’ for his relationship with the latter’s wife. The R&B singer had stirred up controversy on June 30 when he claimed in an interview with radio host Angela Yee. He said that he had been romantically involved with Pinkett Smith. Alsina added that Smith had given them his blessing.
Pinkett Smith opened up on the subject in an interview with her husband, Will Smith, on her Facebook Watch show “Red Table Talk”. “We were over,” Pinkett Smith said. “From there, as time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August.”
She added, “One of the things I want to clear up that was kind of swirling in the press was you giving permission, which the only person who can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself.”
Pinkett Smith revealed that she had entered the relationship with Alsina out of a desire to feel good and help heal him. After ending her relationship with Alsina, she and Smith got back together. Pinkett Smith added that she and Alsina have not spoken since their break-up.
The Smiths have been married since 1997. They are parents to two children Jaden and Willow.
