American singer August Alsina has alleged that actor Will Smith ‘gave him his blessing’ to have an affair with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.
Alsina, 27, sparked rumours that he had a relationship with Jada, 48, with his song Nunya, the video for which featured a GIF of the Girls Trip actress.
And in an interview with The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee, the singer alleged that he had a relationship over a number of years with Jada that was approved by her husband Will.
‘I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation. Due to the transformation from their marriage to their life partnership that they spoken on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing.
‘I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life. 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.’ Alsina added:
‘I really loved the person that I experienced that with and know what that feels like, if some people never get that in this lifetime.
‘I know that I am completely blessed and this conversation is difficult because it is so much, that it would be hard for people to understand but — once it starts to affect me and my livelihood — I have to speak up about my truth.’
The singer was introduced to Jada in 2015 by her son Jaden, and Alsina even attended the 2017 BET Awards with the actress.
