For the longest time, there has been speculation surrounding the nature of Will Smith and Jada Pinketts’ marriage.
Rumor has been that they are in an open relationship, which neither has addressed.
An now in an interview, we are learning there may be some truth to it. RnB singer August Alsina has confessed that Will Smith gave permission for him to bed wife Jada.
Alsina has opened up on the alleged affair in an interview with The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee.
He said: “I actually sat down with Will (Smith) and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership … he gave me his blessing.”
Alsina, 27, was introduced to Pinkett Smith, 48, in 2015 by her son Jaden. He said the two became very close, even holidaying with the Smith family in Hawaii in 2016 and attending the 2017 BET Awards together.
He claims he fell in love with Pinkett Smith.
“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love 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,” he said.
“And I really loved a person, I experienced that and I know what that feels like – and 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.”
Alsina even went on to describe Pinkett Smith as “God’s divinity” on her 47th birthday. It is not clear when their alleged affair ended.
The interview is for Alsina’s new YouTube documentary StateofEMERGEncy: The Rise of August Alsina to promote his new album The Product III:stateofEMERGEncy.
During the interview, Yee questioned, “Is it disappointing that she (Pinkett Smith) never addressed it to you, because like you said, you lost out on opportunities?”
“I really can’t even get into the thought of that because I am only responsible for myself, right,” Alsina replied. “And I am only responsible for, you know, what I do. When I am repressing and suppressing things and it starts to affect me, I have to address it. I just always stay solid because I never want to be the person to start confusion.”
Here are some reactions from Kenyans on the hotly debated topic:
Hio idea ya open relationship inakuanga labda tu one sided. Inabidi umekubali juu hutaki kuachwa. Lmao
Mostly its a woman who wants an open relationship
