As August Alsina makes new statements about the couple, see what they have said on the same subject, in their own words.
Jada Pinkett Smith spoke out against claims by family friend and musician August Alsina this week, in which he said Will Smith gave him “his blessing” to continue a relationship with his wife.
Alsina made this claim in an interview with Angela Lee of the Breakfast Club, describing how the situation allegedly escalated after meeting the Smith family in 2015.
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation due to the transformation of their marriage into a life partnership that they talked about a number of times,” Alsina said. “He gave me his blessing.
“I’ve been totally dedicated to this relationship for years of my life, and I love her really and really, really deeply and I have a ton of love for her,” he added. “I have dedicated myself to it, I have given myself fully to it – so much so that I can die now and be okay with knowing that I have truly given myself to someone.”
A representative for Jada, however, said Sixth page the allegations were “Absolutely not true!”
“I always said to Will, ‘You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and everything is fine,” “she said at the time. “Because at the end of the day Will is his own man. I’m here as a partner, but he’s his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and it’s not for me to do it for him. . Or vice versa. “
She reiterated this position in 2015, when the topic returned during an interview with Howard Stern.
“Here’s the deal with that, Howard, you gotta trust who you are. And at the end of the day, I’m not here to watch anyone,” she said. “I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man. Here’s what I trust – I trust the man that Will is is the man of integrity. So he’s got all the confidence. freedom of the world. As long as Will can look at himself in the mirror and it’s okay, I’m fine. “
She also explained that she finds it unrealistic to believe that a man will never find another woman attractive.
“Just because your man is attracted to another woman doesn’t mean he doesn’t like you. That’s not what it means,” she continued. “And that doesn’t mean he’s going to act. If your man can’t really see another woman’s beauty, how the hell is he going to see yours?
She then clarified her comments on Facebook by writing, “Will and I can do ANYTHING we want, because we TRUST each other to do it. It does NOT mean we have an open relationship… it means we do. “
Appearing on “Watch what happens live” in 2017, Jada also claimed that the “craziest rumor” she had heard about herself and her husband was that they were “swingers.” She added: “It’s constant … and I’m like, ‘Yo, I wish. I wish!'”

“We broke up within our marriage and got back together and had to rebuild with new rules and something completely different,” he continued. “I took off for two years, worked on myself, read 50 books on marriage, relationships and behavioral psychology. I closed for two whole years to see what I was doing. wrong.”
“At the end of the day, to have a successful relationship, you have to have a relationship with a human being,” Jada said.
