August Alsina, a singer and songwriter, has alleged that Will Smith, a fellow American entertainer, gave him permission to have an affair with his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
The 27-year-old Alsina made the claim in a recent interview with Angela Yee on ‘The Breakfast Club’.
The interview was for the singer’s new YouTube documentary ‘StateofEMERGEncy: The Rise of August Alsina’ aimed to promote his new album ‘The Product III:stateofEMERGEncy’.
The singer claimed that Smith “gave me his blessing” to have the affair, adding that he deeply loved the 48-year-old Jada for the period they were in their relationship.
He said: “I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation. Due to the transformation from their marriage to their life partnership that they spoken on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing.
“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life. I truly and really, really deeply loved, 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 OK with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.

“I really loved the person that I experienced that [with] and know what [that feels] like – if 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.”
A representative for Pinkett, however, told Page Six that Alsina’s claims are “absolutely not true”.
Jada and Will have been married since 1997.
