Many sat in anticipation for Jada Pinkett Smith to bring herself to her own show, Red Table Talk, to speak on August Alsina’s recent claims of their affair.
What we didn’t know was that she would bring her husband Will Smith as well. The two set a new record for the most-watched in 24-hours for Facebook Watch original episode, which was viewed by more than 15 million in less than a day. The numbers have not been officially verified, but it will come as no surprise that the new episode beat the previous Red Table Talk episode that featured Jordyn Woods after the Tristian Thompson ordeal, which will now come in second, at 7.6 million. So really, Jada broke her own record.
Well, now we know 15 million people couldn’t wait to hear Jada address the rumors of the “alleged” relationship with singer August Alsina, who recently broke the news during an interview with Angela Yee that was supposed to be about his new music.
What has since become a trending word, Jada said her situation with Alsina was an “entanglement.” But husband Will Smith quickly got her together by saying it was a “relationship” that took place while the two amicably decided to separate to find what makes them both happy. Jada felt the amicableness her, and Will shared, may have been the reason Alsina felt Will gave them his blessing.
“I was done with your ass, but marriages have that, though,” Smith said, laughing. “We decided that we were going to separate for a period of time and you go figure out a way to make yourself happy, and I’ll figure out how to make myself happy.”
They both seem to be in a better and happier space during the recent episode and even find humor in it. They both laughed and smiled while talking about the brokenness of their marriage and shared their motto, “We ride together. We die together. Bad marriage for life.”
The Smiths seem to have reconciled.
