Jada Pinkett Smith Admits to Relationship with August Alsina on Red Table Talk with Will Smith

Jada brought herself to the Red Table to share her side of the story, as Will asks the pressing questions.

Jada Pinkett Smith just gave a lengthy response to recent claims from family friend and musician August Alsina, who previously said Will Smith gave him "his blessing" to pursue a relationship with his wife.

Appearing on her own Facebook Watch series "Red Table Talk," Smith directly addressed Alsina's interview with The Breakfast Club's Angela Lee -- in which he said something blossomed between the two after he met the Smith family in 2015.

During the episode, done alongside Will, she admitted she and August had a relationship during a separation from her husband.

While a rep for Jada previously said his allegations were "absolutely not true," she clarified Friday that it wasn't a statement she made herself. Will echoed her sentiments, saying he never released a personal statement either.

Jada admitted she and will were going through a rough patch, with Will saying, "I was done with you." During a separation, they agreed they would try and find a way to be happy without each other.
"From there, as time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August," said Jada. When it came to Will giving "permission," Jada said "the only person who could give permission in that particular circumstance is myself."
"What August was trying to communicate ... I think he wanted to make it clear he's not a home wrecker," she added. Will then asked her to say "clearly say what happened" between her and August.
