Lil Wayne on his Young Money Radio show spoke with August Alsina, who discussed his infamous “entanglement” with Jada Pinkett Smith.
“When you experience a certain type of experience on this planet… I will always have love for her as a person,” he told Wayne. “The experience really did help to transform me.” He continued, clarifying, “Nobody is wrong here, nobody is a bad person. She didn’t prey on me.”
Alsina doubled down on his claims about Will Smith.
“As two men, we had a conversation and that’s what it was,” he said. “Everything I spoke on in my initial interview, is my truth. Because of the narrative that was painted, I’m speaking on this because I’m salty they ended up getting back together.”
Alsina also addressed allegations that he was using the Smiths for publicity.
“People may say, or it’s looking like, I’m doing something for attention —absolutely, absolutely, not. What’s perplexing to me, I never think it’s anybody’s business to know my personal business, but when my personal business starts to affect my livelihood — I lost partnerships because it looked like I was pressing on someone’s wife.”
August Alsina revealed that he was in a romantic relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith while she was married to Will Smith and with his blessing.
"I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation due to the transformation in their marriage to life partnership that they've spoken on several times and it not involving romanticism," said August. "He gave me his blessing and I told him 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."
