Keke Palmer got into a Twitter spat with August Alsina on Friday, after a fan suggested she was dating the singer at the same time he was seeing Jada Pinkett Smith.
On Friday evening, Jada finally addressed her “affair” with August during a candid chat with her husband Will Smith on Red Table Talk.
The actress admitted to having a relationship with August around four years ago, when her marriage to Will was on the rocks.
After Red Table Talk aired, a Twitter user posted an old photo of Keke and August and suggested they were romantically linked back in 2015 – at the same time he was in a relationship with Jada.
Yes girl. August was never my man lol. That’s why you’re still reaching to this day to figure out nothing. https://t.co/NBi5oKIaB3

But Keke responded to their tweet by writing: “Yes girl. August was never my man lol. That’s why you’re still reaching to this day to figure out nothing.”
August went on to quote tweet Keke’s response, and wrote: “U absolutely right. I was NEVER ur man. 🤨 You could possibly never shortie. It seems u mad u got curved, but ur ‘friends’ r the reason 4 that.”
“Dey showed me an endless thread of txt/pics of me dat u sent, wrry’d abt who i date &BEGGED me 2 not further disturb ur mental instability.” [sic]

August went on to tweet: “Imagine not knowing how to mind the business that pay you. I catch all the subliminals. (Not just about today) & you can call me whatever you like, Mess is constantly inserting yourself in topics you have nun to do w/. Go play w/ ya MAMMY! Not me!” [sic]
He added: “If you have something to say, say it w/ ya CHEST kids. It’s always very perplexing cause I real deal be showing people genuine love. Whole time that envy eating ya lil heart. Anyway, NEXT!!”
Later, a fan praised August for “unloading the 69 clip on any female who tries him right now”, and he replied: “Nah, I’m literally not. I actually f***ed w/ KeKe. So to see her covertly speaking subliminal shade around my name over the past week Is deeply perplex.”
“I don’t and never have had a problem w/ the girl. It’s always been Virgo love! So to see that is a mind f*** to me.”
Nah, I’m literally not. I actually fucked w/ KeKe. So to see her covertly speaking subliminal shade around my name over the past week Is deeply perplex. I don’t and never have had a problem w/ the girl. It’s always been Virgo love! So to see that is a mind fuck to me. https://t.co/dPgTx8wJuH

Keke later addressed the drama in a lengthy Instagram post, and wrote: “I wanna be mean, but I can’t. I want to post screenshots, but I won’t. I feel attacked, but It’s not about me.”
“It’s about so much more than that and as much as I want to defend myself against the disrespect I have received (cause I mean I’m not nice all the time 😜) this is about something so much bigger.”
“I wouldn’t feel good kicking someone when they are down because it’s so easy to attack when you’re in a corner, I get it. People be hurting y’all and most of the time it has nothing to do with you,” she continued.

“I can’t f*** up my karma worried about my ego, though I’m human and I have one. Just know I am that bitch despite what my humility may make one believe.”
“I don’t have to beg or be thirsty for a damn thing because my talent speaks louder than my looks. Let the cheek be turned pooh’s, my character is too strong,” she added.
