August Alsina Agrees He Had an 'Entanglement' with Jada Pinkett Smith, Reacts to the 'Red Table Talk'

August Alsina is talking in depth about his “entanglement” with Jada Pinkett Smith in a new interview.

The 27-year-old singer previously went public with his former relationship with Jada, 48, and he claimed that Will Smith gave him permission to be with her.

Jada and Will then filmed a Red Table Talk episode in which they reacted to the allegations and she confirmed she had an “entanglement” with August during a break in the marriage.

In an interview with Vulture, August said that he has not watched the episode of Red Table Talk.

“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,” he said.

August was asked about the use of the word entanglement and he said, “I don’t know why that word is such an issue. I would agree [with Jada]. 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.”

In response to Will and Jada denying that he gave his permission for the relationship, August said, “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. 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.”
