Jada Pinkett Smith And August Alsina Relationship Controversy


From last few days, Jada Pinkett Smith and her family have been an Internet sensation for one reason or another.

Earlier they were in the news for calling out Shane Dawson about his disgusting behaviour in one of the old video clips. This time it’s about t the rumoured relationship between Jada and August Alsina.

Alsina surprised everyone by claiming that he was in a relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith with β€œblessing” of her husband, Will Smith.

As soon as the news came out, Jada Pinkett Smith outright denied this.

Alsina’s claim


August Alsina addressed the rumours about his romance with Jada in an interview with The Breakfast Club.

The 27-year old singer said, β€œI 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. I devoted myself to it. I gave my full self to it.”

As soon as the article was published though, Jada outright denied his claims. She said that the claims were β€œabsolutely not true.”

About Will Smith, Alsina said, β€œI actually sat down with Will and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to a life partnership. He gave me his blessing.”

β€œAbsolutely not true.”

First of all, it was Jada’s representatives who issued a statement and said that Alsina’s words were β€œabsolutely not true.”

Later on Jada herself addressed the matter directly and talked about taking this to the Red Table Talk.

On Thursday, she tweeted, β€œThere’s some healing that needs to happen … so I’m bringing myself to The Red Table.”

The Red Table Talk is a talk show in which she interviews friends, family members and celebrities around a red table. She hosts this show along with her mother Adrienne Banfield Norris and her daughter Willow Smith.

An open marriage?


Although Jada Pinkett Smith has denied having any romance with August Alsina, the rumours are not new.

The mention of Will Smith giving his blessing to Alsina and Pinkett Smith, as Alsina claims, has raised several questions.

Many fans are toying with the idea that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith might be in an open marriage. But these speculations aren’t new. People have long doubted that Smiths were in an open marriage.

The suspicions first started in 2013. In an interview to HuffPost Jada said that she had always told Will that he could do whatever he wanted as long as he could look into a mirror and be okay.

β€œBecause at the end of the day, Will is his own man. I’m here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and that’s not for me to do for him. Or vice versa.

Later on, when that sparked speculations that they might have an open marriage, she denied the possibility.

She said, β€œWill and I BOTH can do WHATEVER we want because we TRUST each other to do so. This does NOT mean we have an open relationship … this means we have a GROWN one.”
