There are a few things about Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s marriage that many people would consider to be, well, weird. For instance, the famous pair stopped calling each other husband and wife, and they don’t really believe in monogamy. And on July 10, 2020, they did something that many couples definitely wouldn’t be willing to do: They sat down together to publicly talk about Jada’s affair. Yes, Jada admittedly to having a relationship with someone else while still technically married to Will.
During an episode of the former Gotham star’s Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk, the duo who have been married since 1997 both opened up about allegations made by August Alsina, who was introduced to Jada by her son, Jaden (per Vulture). According to the singer, he had been involved in a relationship with Jada and even claimed that he had Will’s “blessing,” according to Page Six.
Although the outlet also notes that Jada’s representatives responded at the time by saying that Alsina’s claims were “absolutely not true,” she’s now saying something very different.
Jada says she had an 'entanglement' with August
Jada Pinkett Smith didn’t seem to hold back at all during the incredibly honest July 2020 Red Table Talk discussion with her husband, Will Smith. While opening up what happened between herself and August Alsina, Jada explained, “Four and a half years ago… I started a friendship with August and we actually became really, really good friends.” She added, “It all started with him just needing some help, me wanting to help his health, his mental state.”
But an “entanglement” developed between the pair while Jada was separated from Will, which is why she says that she didn’t consider it to be “a transgression at all.” The star continued by noting that she “learned so much” about herself at the time, and was “was able to really confront a lot of emotional immaturity [and] emotional insecurity,” while also “do[ing] some really deep healing.”
She also says that she was able to “realize certain things” about herself and Will, which has helped them get to a “new place of unconditional love.” That’s surely the reason why they were able to sit down together to have what could have been (and still likely was?) such a tough conversation to have.
