American singer August Alsina shared some shocking insights into his relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith, the wife of Will Smith, during an interview with “The Breakfast Club” host Angela Yee. According to Alsina, the two shared much more than a simple friendship, and their affair was allegedly greenlighted by Will Smith himself.
“I actually sat down with Will [Smith] and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership that they’ve spoken on several times. And it, you know, not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing”, the 27-year-old singer said during the interview.
“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and 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 okay with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody”, Alsina shared.

Alsina and Pinkett, 48, reportedly met back in 2015 through the actress’s son Jaden. According to the musician, he was very much involved with Smith’s family, occasionally going on vacation with them and attending ceremonies together.
In 2018, Alsina already prompted speculation about his more-than-friendly relationship with Will Smith’s wife by referring to her on his Instagram as “an example of Gods divinity”. His 2019 song “Nunya” also covertly hinted at an affair between the two.
“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”, the singer told Yee. “So 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”.
It was not clear from Alsina’s words when the alleged affair started or ended, but the singer argued that he never wanted to “cause confusion” for the Smith family, as he really admired them.
Page Six rushed to contact Jada Pinkett Smith’s representative to confirm the reports, who responded that the claims made by Alsina were “absolutely not true”.
Social media users did not stay silent on the matter. Many addressed the news by digging out an array of past photos featuring Alsina and Pinkett together, while also mocking the actress’s old comment that she was “helping” the musician “on his spiritual journey”. An array of Will Smith-related memes are currently doing the rounds on Twitter.
