Jada Pinkett Smith revealed in her heart-to-heart chat show with her husband Will Smith that she had a relationship with rapper August Alsina.
Speaking to Smith on her Facebook show Red Table Talk, the actress said the relationship occurred while the couple were separated.
“We were finished,” she says. “From there, over time, I entered another type of entanglement with August. ”
Mr. Smith then pushes it by saying “a tangle?” A relationship “.
“I was in a lot of pain and I was very broken,” she replied.
The couple have been married since 1997 and said they are currently back together after a breakup.
The couple said they wanted to do the show to dispel media speculation about an interview that August Alsina had recently given to a morning radio show, The Breakfast Club.
The rapper said he had a relationship with Pinkett Smith and that Smith had given the deal his “blessing”, leading to speculation that the Hollywood power couple was in an open marriage.
“The only person who can give permission in this particular circumstance is myself,” said Pinkett Smith.
“I could really see how he would perceive this as permission because we were amicably separated and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he is not a wrecker either. What it is not. ”
She hadn’t spoken to the rapper in years, she added.
Smith asked her what she thought she was looking for in “interaction” with Alsina about four and a half years ago.
“I just wanted to feel good,” she replied, as her husband nodded sympathetically. “It has been so long since I have been feeling well. ”
Now that the couple are back together, Pinkett Smith has declared that they have reached a place of “unconditional love”.
Towards the end of the interview, Smith told him, “I’ll get you first. ”
Pinkett Smith laughed and replied, “I think you got me! I think we are good at it. ”
At the end of the conversation, the pair hit their fists.
“We ride together, we die together. A bad marriage for life, ”they said in a quote from the Smith’s Bad Boys movies.
