Jada Pinkett Smith has admitted she did have an affair with singer August Alsina while married to Will Smith.

Jada Pinkett Smith has admitted she did have an affair with singer August Alsina while married to Will Smith.

The 48-year-old sat down with her husband for an intimate conversation on her Facebook show, Red Table Talk, and revealed she developed a friendship with August around four years ago.

She said around the same time, the married couple was going through a ‘difficult time’ and they had ‘basically broken up’.

The bombshell tell-all comes after both actors denied August’s claims that Will gave him his blessing to have a relationship with Jada.

In Friday’s episode of Jada’s web series, the Hollywood couple sat opposite each other as they set the record straight and reaffirmed their commitment to each other.

Jada began explaining that the couple met August through their son Jaden and recalled that the Louisiana-born singer, who would have been 23 at the time, was ‘really sick’.

‘And it all started with him just needing some help, me wanting to help his health, his mental state.

‘The outpouring for him from our family was initially about his health,’ she said. ‘We found all those different resources to help pull him through and from there you and I were going through a very difficult time.’

Will admitted, ‘I was done with you,’ while Jada added that they decided to separate for a ‘period of time’.

‘And then what did you do, Jada?’ Will asked, urging his wife to keep talking.

‘As time went on, I got into a different type of entanglement with August,’ Jada explained.

The mother-of-two went on to respond to August’s claim that Will gave her ‘permission’ to have an affair.

‘The only person that can give permission in that circumstance is me,’ she insisted.

‘But what August was probably trying to communicate because I could see how he could see it as permission because we were separated amicably, and I think he wanted to make it clear he’s not a homewrecker because he’s not.’

When Will pushed Jada to clarify what she meant by ‘entanglement’ she responded, ‘It was a relationship, absolutely.’

Jada continued: ‘I was in a lot of pain, and I was very broken. In the process of that relationship, I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside yourself.’

She explained the couple was going through a process of healing.

‘I just wanted to feel good, It had been so long since I felt good… and it was really a joy to just help heal somebody.’

The Set It Off star pondered whether her actions were down to her codependency issues and needing to ‘fix people’ due to her past traumas.

As Will made light of the fact that he’s being the dutiful husband and standing by his wife after her ‘transgressions’ amid intense media scrutiny, Jada admitted that she doesn’t see her relationship with August ‘as a transgression at all’.
