August Alsina dropped a bombshell in a recent Breakfast Club interview with #AngelaYee, opening up about his relationship Jada Pinkett-Smith that was allegedly greenlit by her husband, Will Smith.
However, a rep for the Set It Off star says rumors and claims of an affair are “absolutely not true!!!” according to Page Six.
In a candid interview which was scheduled to discuss his new album Product III: stateofEMERGEncy, the R&B singer, for the first time, went into detail his longtime relationship with Jada.
According to TMZ, Alsina, 27, met Jada, 48, through her son Jaden in 2015. From there, things apparently got deep between the two, or maybe just with Alsina, who says Jada is the only person he has ever loved, adding that he devoted himself to Will Smith’s wife and poured himself into their relationship for years.
‘I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life. I truly and really, really deeply loved, 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.’
There have been rumors for years that Jada and Will Smith have an open relationship, but her team has denounced those allegations by saying the whole thing is made up. But according to Alsina, it was Will Smith who gave their relationship his blessing.
‘I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation. Due to the transformation from their marriage to their life partnership that they spoken on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing,” he said during the interview.
Many were puzzled at how close Jada and Alsina were before his interview. It didn’t help when Alsina released his song “Nunya” last year that strongly hinted at a sexual relationship with the actress.
Alsina’s remarks could be a publicity stunt to help push his new album, but it could also be the truth considering how genuine and emotional he appeared to be during the interview. When addressing the Smith family, he said, “I love those people literally like my family. I don’t have a bad thing to say about them. They are beautiful people.”
‘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.’
