August Alsina has spoken up about his past rumoured relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith in a recent interview with radio personality Angela Yee, discussing his new album The Product III: stateofEMERGEncy.
August stated that Jada Pinkett Smith husband, Will Smith, gave him his blessing.
Alsina went on to explain that he’s lost “money, friendships [and] relationships” over those rumors, stating that he thinks “it’s because people don’t necessarily know the truth, but I never have done anything wrong.”
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation,” Alsina claimed. “Due to the transformation from their marriage to [a] 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,” he noted, adding, “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.”
