Jada Pinkett Quoted : Affair with August Alsina Is an #Entantglement, Will Smith Reacts

Jada Pinkett Smith just gave a lengthy response to recent claims from family friend and musician #AugustAlsina, who previously said Will Smith gave him “his blessing” to pursue a relationship with his wife — as we Previously Reported.

On Jada Pinkett  “Red Table Talk,” the couple directly addressed Alsina’s interview with The Breakfast Club’s Angela Lee — in which he said something blossomed between the two after he met the Smith family in 2015.

During the episode, done alongside Will, she admitted she and August had a relationship during a separation from her husband. The conversation quickly started trending on Twitter.

While a representative for Jada previously said Alsina’s allegations were “absolutely not true,” she clarified Friday that it wasn’t a statement she made herself.

Will echoed her sentiments, saying he never released a personal statement either.


Jada said “At the end of the day, I don’t like how all of this came to be. That doesn’t matter, it’s all love, honestly,”. “That would be something I wouldn’t comment on at all. I feel like it’s a situation I consider private.”.

Talking about their “personal journey” that “became very public,” Jada said that about 4 and a half years ago, she started a “friendship” with August and they became “really, really good friends.”

Jada admitted she and Will were going through a rough patch, and  Will said, “I was done with you.” During a separation, they agreed they would try and find a way to be happy without each other.

“From there, as time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August,” — said Jada.


Jada said “the only person who could give permission in that particular circumstance is myself.”

she added — “What August was trying to communicate … I think he wanted to make it clear he’s not a home wrecker.”

Will then asked Jada to say “clearly what happened” between her and August.

It was a relationship, absolutely. I was in a lot of pain, I was broken and in the process of that relationship I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside of yourself. And luckily enough, you and I were also going through a process of healing in a much different manner.Jada Pinkett Smith

“It had been so long since I felt good,” said Jada, adding that it was also a “joy to help heal somebody,” referring to Alsina.


Will joked that, being at the Table, he felt like a husband at “the press conference” while she told “the world about her transgressions.”

Jada, however, said she doesn’t look at it as a transgression “at all,” as the relationship taught her about her own emotional insecurity, “and I was really able to do some really deep healing.”

Jada said August decided to “break all communication” with her as she “started to realize certain things” about her and Will — “which was totally understandable,” she added. While it’s unclear when this happened, Alsina was a guest on “Red Table Talk” in 2018.

“I let that be and hadn’t talked to him since,” said Jada, “so it is a little weird all this stuff is coming out now since this was several [years ago].”

Will added— “Our experiences of working through it, fighting through it, talking through it and therapizing through it, I think the why now is weird.”

“Alsina and I haven’t talked in so long, so this all seemed very strange,” she added.


The two couple also added they’ve never had secrets between them.

“We have really got to that new place of unconditional love,” said Jada, as he said he wasn’t sure they would ever speak again after their separation.

“It ain’t for the weak at heart,” he added, “there are just certain things we have to go through.”

“You gotta go through some shit to get the answers,” said Jada. “I definitely believe you and I, we never thought we would make it back.”

After noting they’ve been together for 25 years, they both joked, “We ride together, we die together, Bad Marriage for life.”
