August Alsina has revealed he still loves Jada Pinkett Smith even after the actress famously described their affair as an ‘entanglement.‘
Speaking in an interview with Lil Wayne on the season finale of Young Money Radio on Apple Music, the 27-year-old singer also admitted that the affair he had with Jada, 48, years ago while she was married to Hollywood superstar Will Smith, 51, positively ‘transformed’ him and brought out the ‘King’ in him.
August Alsina also insisted that Will Smith gave him his blessings to be with his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith after they both sat down and had a discussion about it.
Asked by Lil Wayne if he still loved Jada Pinkett-Smith, who branded their relationship an ‘entanglement’ during her recent Red Table Talk with her husband, August Alsina responded: ‘Absolutely.‘
He continued: ‘I feel like when you experience a certain type of experience on this planet and you experience a certain type of love, you, I’ll always, I will always have love for her as a person… Real talk though. Real talk. The experience really did help to transform me and really bring out the king in me. But as for what people may say or whatever, or if it’s looking like I might, I’m doing something for attention. Absolutely not…l mean, what’s perplexing to me is that I never think it’s anybody’s business to know my business. And my personal business.
‘But, when my personal business starts to affect my lifestyle and my livelihood, like I lost partnerships and deals behind that situation. Because it looked to the world as if August Alsina was some reckless New Orleans ni**a that I’m just pushing up on somebody’s wife. And because they didn’t have the truth, those things happened and transpired. And then when the truth was revealed, so many of those same people came back around it and apologised to me like, “I’m sorry, my bad. I didn‘t know.”‘he said
