The recent release of an interview between singer, August Alsina and media personality Angela Yee has caused the artist to be trending due to the comments he made about Jada Pinkett-Smith.
The world was already skeptical about Will and Jada’s relationship. Referred to as a “life partnership,” & rumored that they had some sort of open relationship- maybe even swingers. The rumors definitely resurfaced after August Alsina admitted to having an extensive relationship with Jada in his interview with Angela Yee.
Amidst discussing his latest album, The Product III: stateofEMERGEgency and his YouTube docuseries “stateofEMERGEgency: The Rise of August Alsina” both released last week, Angela asked about who the New Orleans artist was linked to romantically and about the rumors between him and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years,” said the artist. He also discussed sitting down with Will Smith and receiving his blessing. Despite expressing great love for the both of them and their family, it seems as though Jada is denying Alsina’s statements.
According to PageSix, Jada’s rep has said that Alsina’s claims are “absolutely not true.” As of now, there hasn’t been any direct response from Will and Jada.
Beyond the relationship accusations, August also discusses his battle with an autoimmune disease, the struggles of his upbringing, the passing of his sister and more. Check out his documentary "stateofEMERGEgency: The Rise of August Alsina," to learn more.
