August Alsina is opening about his rumored affair with Jada Pinkett Smith.

The relationship rumors started when Alsina released his 2019 track “Nunya” which included the lines: “You got me feeling like it was an act, you’re just an actress/Putting on a show ’cause you don’t want the world to know.” In the video, Alsina is texting someone named “Koren,” which happens to be Jada’s middle name

During an interview with Angela Yee, Alsina revealed that he was indeed romantically involved with Jada and that Will Smith gave him his blessing to do so.

“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.”

Alsina goes on to say that he eventually walked away from his relationship with Jada because it got too awkward.

This conversation is difficult because [it’s] hard for people to understand. But once it starts to affect me and my livelihood, I have to speak up about my truth … Walking away from it butchered me … It almost killed me. Not almost. It didโ€”it pushed me into being another person … It broke me down … It probably will be the hardest thing I ever had to experience in this lifetime. It’s difficult because I never want to be the person to cause confusion or step on toes, but I want to honor myself and I want to honor my authenticity. And if honoring my authenticity means you hate me, stone me, shoot me, crucify me, whatever, bury me an honest man

While there have been rumors over the years that Will and Jada have be in an open marriage many were still shocked about Alsina’s recent revelation.
