August Alsina Claims he had an Affair with Jada Pinkett with Will Smith Blessing
The Benediction singer said : “I actually sat down with Will (Smith) and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership … he gave me his blessing.”
Alsina, 27, was introduced to Pinkett Smith, 48, in 2015 by her son Jaden. He said the two became very close, even holidaying with the Smith family in Hawaii in 2016 and attending the 2017 BET Awards together.
Alsina claims he fell in love with 48 years old Jada Pinkett Smith.
“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love and have a ton of love for her.
I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it – so much so to the point that I can die right now and be OK with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody,” he said.
“And I really loved a person, I experienced that and I know what that feels like – and some people never get that in this lifetime.
I know that I am completely blessed and this conversation is difficult because it is so much, that it would be hard for people to understand but, once it starts to affect me and my livelihood, I have to speak up about my truth.”

The interview was for Alsina’s new YouTube documentary State of EMERGEncy: The Rise of August Alsina. To promote his new album The Product III: State of Emergency.
During the interview, Yee questioned, “Is it disappointing that she (Pinkett Smith) never addressed it to you, because like you said, you lost out on opportunities?”
“I really can’t even get into the thought of that because I am only responsible for myself, right,”. “And I am only responsible for, you know, what I do.
When I am repressing and suppressing things and it starts to affect me, I have to address it. I just always stay solid because I never want to be the person to start confusion.”
There was speculation that Alsina’s 2009 song “Nunya” was about Pinkett Smith. It had lines like: “Why is you textin me / Asking who next to me / Why you care about who having sex with me / Now you all on my line, why you pressing me?”

During the interview Alsina also revealed, “Contrary to what people may believe, I am not a troublemaker. I don’t like drama. Drama actually makes me nauseous.
“And I also don’t think that it is ever important for people to know what I do, who I sleep with, who I date … but in this instance it is very different because as I said, there are so many people that are side-eyeing me, looking at me questionable.
“I have lost money, friendships, relationships behind it and I think it is because people don’t necessarily know the truth. But I have never done anything wrong.”

Dear Will, There are so many things that I haven’t and don’t get right but there is one thing I got really right and that’s choosing you as the Father of my children. I didn’t know much about Fathering when we had children but our parenting journey together has taught me so much about the need and the importance of having a present, courageous and loving Father available. You taught me that a Father’s place is intricate and extremely specific and looks very different from Mothering and that’s the part I had to learn to respect. Thank you for respecting and ALWAYS supporting my Mothering which I have found to be one of your greatest super powers. I’m deeply grateful to you Will. I love you and Happy Father’s Day! I hope you guys will watch the Red Table Talk Father’s Day special as Will and I explore his Fathering journey. And I hope that there are Father’s out there that will feel more understood and appreciated after watching. STREAMING NOW. LINK IN MY BIO❣️
