Actors Will Smith, 51, and Jada Pinkett Smith, 48, have been married since 1997. On July 10, 2020, he interviewed her in her Facebook show “Red Table Talk” and the couple talked about her controversial relationship with singer August Alsina, 27.
Will and Jada have two children namely Jaden Smith, 22, and Willow Smith, 19. According to Jada, she met Alsina in 2016 when she and Will separated but were still married.
According to Jada, her relationship with Alsina started when she was helping him with his problems with his mental health. She told Will, “We found all those different resources to help pull him through and from there you and I were going through a very difficult time.”
For Jada, it was really a joy to just help heal somebody. She said she just wanted to feel good, something she had not felt for a long a time at the time.
That was the time Will and Jada decided to separate for a “period of time” and he was “done” with her. She admitted, “As time went on, I got into a different type of entanglement with August.”
It appeared that Will himself wanted more details about the entanglement. Jada explained, “It was a relationship absolutely.”
“I was in a lot of pain and I was very broken,” Jada continued. “In the process of that relationship, I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside yourself.”
On June 30, 2020, Alsina told “The Breakfast Club” host Angela Yee that Will had given him permission to have an affair with Jada, which both Will and his wife denied. She said, “The only person that can give permission in that circumstance is myself but what August was probably trying to communicate because I could see how he could see it as permission because we were separated amicably and I think he wanted to make it clear he’s not a homewrecker because he’s not.”

Independent: free from outside control; not depending on another’s authority. 🤔 Today is everything BUT that. The complete antithesis actually! In 2020 black ppl are hanging from trees, blood not only on the leaves but the middle of the streets too. Oppressed and enslaved in that way, not to mention the mental anguish & slavery placed upon us, even from our very own people. This conversation is a never ending one, so I’ll just say.. WE GOTTA MAKE ROOM yal; for not only peoples black lives to live and thrive, but also for the autonomy & freedom of our black people’s souls to evolve & flourish. So here’s to a new beginning hopefully; Happy Make Room Day! ✌🏽&❤️
Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States on September 3, 1992, Alsina was inspired to sing by Lauren Hill, 45, in the 1993 movie “Sister Act 2.” In 2005, he and his family moved from New Orleans to Houston, Texas, USA and in 2011, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
