August Alsina lays it all on the table in a recent interview with “The Breakfast Club’s” Angela Yee. He addresses the issues he’s faced with his health, the new album, “The Product III: stateofEMERGEncy” and the most shocking, his alleged affair with Jada Pinkett-Smith.
TMZ reports that Jada’s reps continue to deny the claims and have called them “absolutely not true.” However, the NOLA singer shared that not only were he and Jada in a relationship, despite her marriage to husband Will Smith, but Will gave him the green light.
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership that they’ve spoken on several times and it not involving romanticism,” he alleged. “He gave me his blessing 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. 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 ok with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.”
August also shares that he is not a fan of drama and he truly loves the Smith family. He claims he didn’t have a choice but to open up about his truth after his health and wellness were affected.
“Contrary to what some people 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.”
He says this instance is different, “there’s so many people that are side-eyeing me, looking at me questionable about it. 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.”
