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.”

Keke Palmer Reacts to August Alsina Slamming Her on Twitter

Keke Palmer is trying to rise above the drama.

The 26-year-old Hustlers actress is reacting after being slammed by August Alsina on Twitter.

It all started on Friday night (July 10) when Keke responded to a fan asking to confirm rumors that she once dated the 27-year-old rapper.

“August was never my man,” Keke responded. “That’s why you’re still reaching to this day to figure out nothing.”

August then got wind of Keke‘s response and took the opportunity to speak out.

“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,” August tweeted. “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.”

August went on to write, “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!”

August then clapped back at a Twitter user who called him out for fighting with “any female who tries him.”

“Nah, I’m literally not. I actually f–ked w/ KeKe. So to see her covertly speaking subliminal shade around my name over the past week Is deeply perplex,” August wrote. “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–k to me.”

After seeing August‘s tweets, Keke took to Instagram to address the situation, but didn’t specifically name August.

“I wanna be mean, but I can’t. I want to post screenshots, but I won’t,” Keke wrote. “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.”

Keke continued: “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. I can’t f–k 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.”

If you missed it, this married actress admitted she was in a relationship with August while separated from her husband.

Jada Pinkett Smith & Will Smith Confirm Former August Alsina Relationship - Watch (Video)

Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith are getting candid.

The married couple brought themselves to Red Table Talk to discuss August Alsina‘s recent allegations that he and Jada had a Will-approved romance for years in a discussion on Friday (July 10).

Together, the two wanted to clear the air regarding how the press covered their alleged statements about the situation.

“This is a very personal journey that became very public,” Jada said.

“I guess about four and a half years ago, I started a friendship with August. We actually became really, really good friends. It all started with him just needing some help, and me wanting to help his health and mental state.”

“When Aug first came around, he was really sick,” Will added.

During that time, Jada said that she and Will were going through a difficult time and separate for a period of time, which led to her relationship with August evolving into a romantic one.

She also wants to address Will giving “permission.”

“The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself,” Jada clarified, adding that he was probably trying to communicate that they were separated at the time, and wanted to make it clear that “he was not a homewrecker – which he’s not.”

“I got into an entanglement with August…a relationship, yes, absolutely,” she went on to say.

She also said she didn’t view her relationship with Alsina “as a transgression at all.”

“Through that particular journey, I learned so much about myself and was able to really confront a lot of emotional immaturity, emotional insecurity and I was really able to do some really deep healing. And as I came through and started to realize certain things about you and I, he decided to break all communication with me which was totally understandable. And I let that be and hadn’t talked to him since so it is a little weird that all this stuff is coming out now since this was several [years ago].”

“For me, this was years ago,” Will added.

The two were able to repair their relationship eventually: “We have really gotten to that new place of unconditional love,” Jada said.

August Alsina Defends His 'Truth' After Jada Pinkett Smith Denied They Had an Affair

August Alsina made a big claim this week that he had an affair with Jada Pinkett Smith and he even said that Will Smith gave his blessing.

The couple’s reps spoke out to deny the claims and Jada seems to be preparing an episode of Red Table Talk to respond to the rumors.

August took to Instagram on Friday (July 3) to share a post about “his truth,” though he never referenced the famous couple.

“I get it; not only do i get it but I’m also sorry you feel that way, BUT, The only attack here is against the invisible walls of silent societal construct and ‘code’ we place upon each other & upon ourselves hidden behind the desires of others approval & acceptance,” August wrote in the post.

“Truth & Transparency makes us uncomfortable, yes, but i can’t apologize for that,” August added. “A tower of truth can never fall, only a tower of lies can do that. My truth is MY truth, & its mine to own. There is no right or wrong here, it simply just IS. & I make room and have acceptance for your thoughts and opinions, regardless if I agree or not, you have that freedom to feel WHATEVER it is u feel because when you’re at TRUE peace, all of the noise and chatter becomes that of a whisper.”

“My heart has no malice or hate toward anyone on this planet. I just simply want the chains off & I’m willing to DIE getting there. The gift of freedom is yours to have, God promises us that, but only if you’re willing. &God is not a man that HE should lie.. & I’m His SON, so neither would I. 🙏🏽,” he said.

August seems to confirm that he gave the Smiths a warning about the interview before it aired.

“W/ that being said i should also say that, no one was side swiped by any conversation, everyone got courtesy calls time in advance,” he concluded.
