August Alsina has responded to Jada Pinkett Smith calling their relationship an “entanglement”.
Earlier this month, Jada finally addressed her “affair” with August during a candid chat with her husband Will Smith on Red Table Talk.
During the episode, the actress said she got into an “entanglement” with August around four years ago, when her marriage to Will was on the rocks.
After Red Table Talk aired, many took issue with the way Jada described her romance with August – but the singer has since said he agrees with her definition.
Speaking to Vulture, August said: “If you look up the definition of ‘entanglement,’ it is a complex and difficult relationship. It was exactly that.”
“I think it’s just the language that probably stuck out to people. But I definitely have to agree with it being an entanglement. It definitely was something complicated, a complicated dynamic.”
When asked if he had watched the episode, August said: “I have people who’ve seen it. I saw small clips floating on Instagram and kinda backed off Instagram. But it’s definitely been brought to my attention by people around me.”
During last Friday’s Red Table Talk, Jada confessed to having a relationship with August – but denied claims that Will gave them permission to engage in a romance.
But in his interview with Vulture, August stood by his original statement.
“I can’t speak for anyone else. What I said in my interview, how I said it, when I said it, is exactly what I said and exactly what I meant,” he said.
“That’s all I can really say about that. All I have is my truth, and all I have is my truth to stand on it. I don’t have any reason to lie about anything.”
Jada and Will have been married since 1997, and the couple share two children – Jaden, 22, and Willow, 19.
