August Alsina has spoken out about his alleged romance with Jada Pinkett Smith.
There were relationship rumors around the pair for quite some time, with some convinced that Alsina and Jada had a secret affair. The speculation was further fueled by Alsina’s 2019 track ”Nunya.”
The official video of the track also featured a shot of a text message from a love interest listed as “Koren,” which just so happens to be Jada’s birth-given middle name.
Alsina however denied then the relationship rumours and insisted “Nunya” was not about Jada.
However, the singer is now saying the opposite.
During the promotional run for his new album The Product III: stateofEMERGEncy and its accompanying five-part docuseries, the singer sat down with Angela Yee to discuss his controversial relationship with Jada. Alsina claimed he and the actress were romantically involved, and that he only decided to speak his truth in an attempt to clear his name.
“People can have whatever ideas that they like. But what I’m not OK with is my character being in question. Contrary to what some people may 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, right? But in this instance, there are so many people who are side-eyeing me … 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 (the Smiths) … They are beautiful people.”
Alsina went on to say the relationship wasn’t a secret affair, saying Jada and her husband, Will Smith, had an open marriage.
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation … He gave me his blessing,” he said. “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 (Jada). I devoted myself to it. I gave my full self to it. So much so that I can die right now, and be OK knowing that I fully gave myself to somebody … Some people never get that in this lifetime.”
