Jada Pinkett Smith responds to claims Will ‘gave her permission’ to have an affair with August Alsina

The singer has claimed he had a relationship with Jada - with Will's "blessing"


Jade Pinkett Smith has been forced to deny claims her husband Will gave her permission to have an affair with August Alsina.

The 48-year-old has spoken out, after August accused the couple of having an open marriage in a recent interview.

Responding to the allegations, Jada’s rep told Page Six that August’s claims are “absolutely not true”.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Will also told The Sun Online that the accusations are “wrong”.


The 27-year-old singer became friendly with the Smith family back in 2015, after he was introduced by the couple’s son Jaden.

During a radio interview with The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee, August said he was in love with Jada, and claimed that they had an affair for “years” with Will’s blessing.

He alleged: “I actually sat down with Will [Smith] and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership … he gave me his blessing.”

Discussing their alleged relationship, August said: “I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love and have a ton of love for her.”

“I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it — so much so to the point that I can die right now and be okay with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.”

“And I really loved a person, I experienced that and I know what that feels like — and some people never get that in this lifetime.

“I know that I am completely blessed and this conversation is difficult because it is so much, that it would be hard for people to understand but — once it starts to affect me and my livelihood — I have to speak up about my truth.”

Jada and Will have been married since 1997, and the couple are parents to Jaden, 21, and Willow, 19.
