August Alsina during an interview with Angela Yee of The Breakfast Club (June 30th) revealed that he was once in a loving relationship with wife of veteran actor Will Smith. A spoke representative for Jada Smith has stepped forward to deny the story, according to reports from Tmz.
August earlier claimed that Will Smith and Jada had an open relationship and will Smith was ok with his relationship with Jada and did in fact, give him his blessing.
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation … He gave me his blessing,” August said. “And I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really, deeply loved and have a ton of love for her (Jada). I devoted myself to it. I gave my full self to it. So much so that I can die right now, and be OK knowing that I fully gave myself to somebody … Some people never get that in this lifetime.”
“This conversation is difficult because [it’s] hard for people to understand. But once it starts to affect me and my livelihood, I have to speak up about my truth … Walking away from it butchered me … It almost killed me. Not almost. It did—it pushed me into being another person … It broke me down … It probably will be the hardest thing I ever had to experience in this lifetime. It’s difficult because I never want to be the person to cause confusion or step on toes, but I want to honor myself and I want to honor my authenticity. And if honoring my authenticity means you hate me, stone me, shoot me, crucify me, whatever, bury me an honest man.” He continued.
He sparked speculations last year with the release of “Nunya.” He however denied at the point that the song was not about the actress.
August made a return to music with the release of a 27-track album titled The Product III stateofEMERGEncy which you can listen to here.
