The public may have been shocked when August Alsina claimed he had an affair with Jada Pinkett Smith with her longtime hubby Will Smith’s blessing, but the powerhouse couple allegedly weren’t. The R&B singer took to Instagram and let it be known he gave the Smith’s a courtesy call.

The R&B singer posted a message on Instagram in which he said he relied heavily on God and his faith. Most importantly, he wanted it to be known that “no one” was surprised by the revelations he made in his interview with Angela Yee that broke the internet.


“i should also say that, no one was side swiped by any conversation, everyone got courtesy calls time in advance. Wishing Everyone Big Love!,” he posted.

His post began with the “Nunya” crooner touching upon how the journey to freedom is a complex one. He claimed that many people were “slaves” to ideas and pictures they’ve created in their minds.

“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; another form of slavery & bondage that blocks one’s truest self from showing & spirit flow,” he posted.

Alsina declared that adversity was a gift in which to flourish. He vowed to do “whatever’s necessary” to reach harmony within himself, even if it meant making others uncomfortable.

“Truth & Transparency makes us uncomfortable, yes, but i can’t apologize for that. A tower of truth can never fall, only a tower of lies can do that. My truth is MY truth, & its mine to own,” he wrote.

“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.”

Alsina stressed that he had no malice or hatred for anyone. He simply wanted to live in his truth.

“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,” he declared.

“God is not a man that HE should lie.. & I’m His SON, so neither would I.”

Alsina’s comments come a day after Pinkett Smith announced that she’d be inviting herself to her Red Table Talk to discuss the allegations. Her rep told Page Six earlier in the week that it was “absolutely not true” that she had an affair with Alsina. Will Smith has yet to publicly comment on the matter.

During a very candid interview with Angela Yee, the singer confirmed he was in a very serious relationship with Jada for years and they had Will Smith‘s blessing.

I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation.

Due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership that they have spoken on several times and it not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing.

And I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life. And I truly and really, really deeply loved and I 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 okay with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody and I really loved a person. I experienced that. I know what that feels like and some people never get that in this lifetime.

I know that I am completely blessed.

August Alsina said when the drama came in…he had to untwine and exit the relationship.

Fighting back emotions, August said leaving the relationship almost killed him.

It…broke…me…down,” he confessed.

— Bambi 🇸🇳 (@BambeeFall)

The double standard is once again showing with this Jada Smith & August Alsina situation. If Jada was the older man & August the younger woman being groomed, the TL would be CANCELING Jada. She basically took advantage of this kid…August sounds broken!

August Alsina saying he’d be okay if he died because he was able to experience that love with Jada is wild. He’s saying that while looking extremely hurt about the situation. Poor thing. ☹️

— 👸🏾L E A👸🏾 (@_MissLeandra)

Imagine Jada and August Alsina come home from date night and walk past Will Smith straight to the bed room. Lmaoooooooo

— Asshole Of The Year (@Bdell_1014)

I feel for August Alsina and here’s why. Jada has a strong foundation at home. He does not. And she knew that. Will knew that. Jada loves a project and August was hers. She wanted to help him but also had a sexual relationship with him. Very murky waters she stepped into.

— peaches (@peaches07)

Will Smith gave August Alsina his blessing to knock Jada Pinkett’s walls down on the red table. Hollywood is a wild place.

— Ronald Isley (@yoyotrav)

Whew chile! Let me mind my black-owned business.
