Will and Jada do have an open relationship, but it is still sort of wild to hear someone say it aloud.
August Alsina did just that.
During a recent interview with Angela Yee, the singer claimed he and Jada were romantically involved, and that he only decided to speak his truth in an effort to clear his name.
“People can have whatever ideas that they like. But what I’m not OK with is my character being in question …” he said at around the 16:30 mark. “Contrary to what some people may believe, I’m not a troublemaker. I don’t like drama. Drama actually makes me nauseous. I also don’t think that it’s ever important for people to know what I do, who I sleep with, who I date, right? But in this instance, there are so many people who are side-eyeing me … I’ve lost money, friendships, relationships behind it. And I think it’s because people don’t necessarily know the truth. But I’ve never done anything wrong. I love those people (the Smiths) … They are beautiful people.”
Alsina went on to say the relationship wasn’t a secret affair, and that he had discussed the situation with Jada’s husband, Will Smith.
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation … He gave me his blessing,” he said. “And 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 (Jada). I devoted myself to it. I gave my full self to it. So much so that I can die right now, and be OK knowing that I fully gave myself to somebody … Some people never get that in this lifetime.”
Twitter is having a field day with this.
