August Alsina has revealed he still loves Jada Pinkett Smith even after the actress famously described their affair as an ‘entanglement.’
Speaking in an interview with Lil Wayne on the season finale of Young Money Radio on Apple Music, the 27-year-old singer also admitted that the affair he had with Jada, 48, years ago while she was married to Hollywood superstar Will Smith, 51, positively ‘transformed’ him and brought out the ‘King’ in him.
He also insisted that Will Smith gave him his blessings to be with his wife after they both sat down and had a discussion about it.
Asked by Lil Wayne if he still loved Jada, who branded their relationship an ‘entanglement’ during her recent Red Table Talk with her husband, August responded: ‘Absolutely.’
He continued: ‘I feel like when you experience a certain type of experience on this planet and you experience a certain type of love, you, I’ll always, I will always have a love for her as a person… Real talk though. Real talk.
‘The experience really did help to transform me and really bring out the king in me. But as for what people may say or whatever, or if it’s looking like I might, I’m doing something for attention. Absolutely not…
‘I mean, what’s perplexing to me is that I never think it’s anybody’s business to know my business. And my personal business.
The star then addresses his initial statement that Jada’s husband Will Smith, 51, gave him his ‘blessing’ to date his wife as they were on a break in their marriage, a claim which the actress has denied.
He said: ‘Everything that I’ve spoken on in my initial interview is and was, and still is, my exact truth. I sat and had a conversation. As two men, we had a conversation and that’s what it was.
‘I think that people, because of the narrative that was painted, believed that oh, I’m speaking about this because I’m salty that they ended up getting back together when that’s never been the case.
‘They weren’t seeing each other in that way, but still and respect each other as family. We sat down as two men, like, “Yo, boom. You have my love. You have my blessing.” And that’s the situation as a whole…
‘It’s complicated because I don’t want to be the person to cause confusion in nobody’s world. But when something is coming down in my world and affecting my world, it’s like, look we got to – I’m ready, to be honest. That’s really all it’s about.
‘But nobody is a bad person here. Not him. Not her. Not anybody. I have a love for everybody. The biggest love, dog. I really do. You know what I’m saying?’
The singer recently released his new track ‘Entanglements’ featuring rapper Rick Ross.
‘The definition of entanglement / It’s when you’re tangled in the sheets / Girl I know that we don’t call it a relationship / But you’re still f**kin’ with me,’ Alsina sings on the new track.
The revealing track also included the lyrics, ‘You left your man to f**k with me, just to pay him back. Don’t you know that’s cold-hearted?’
