In a heart-to-heart talk with her husband Will Smith on her Facebook show ‘Red Table’, Jada Pinkett Smith revealed to her husband that she did have a relationship with R&B singer August Alsina. In her words she referred to her partnership with August Alsina as an “Entanglement”, she further explained that the partnership occurred while she and her husband Will Smith were separated.
The American actress acknowledged that the act was as a result of the emotional pain she felt as a result of the separation with her husband.
“We were over,” she says. “From there, as time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August.”
Mr Smith then presses her, saying “an entanglement? A relationship.”
“I was in a lot of pain and I was very broken,” she countered.
The couple who have been married for over 20years with two children said they are currently back together after a split. They also said they appeared on the show to clear the rumor circulating in the media which was as a result of August Alsina’s claim that he had a relationship with Jada Pinkett and her husband Will Smith had consented to their affair. In response to this claim, Jada Pinkett Smith said;
“The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself,” Pinkett Smith responded
“I could actually see how he would perceive it as permission because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s also not a home-wrecker. Which he’s not.”
