Singer August Alsina has said that he had an affair with Jada Pinkett which lasted for four years and with actor Will Smith approving of it.

August Alsina made this known in an interview with Angela Yezee after she asked him to address the rumoured affair with Will Smith's wife.

According to him: “People can have whatever ideas that they like, but what I’m not OK with is my character being in question. When certain things are questionable that I know is not me, or that I know that, what I haven’t done -- 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, it’s very different, 'cause as I said there is so many people that are side-eyeing me, looking at me questionable about it.

"It’s because people don’t necessarily know the truth, but I never have done anything wrong. I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation.

"Due to the transformation from their marriage to a 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. 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.

"Because I love these people. I really, genuinely do. I have never been in love in that kind of a way. So much so that being intertwined in that way -- walking away from it butchered me.

"I’m shakin' right now because it almost killed me. Not almost. It. Broke. Me. Down."
