Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been making headlines worldwide after August Alsina claimed that Will gave his blessing for him and Jada to engage in a romantic relationship.
This incident took place four and a half years ago when Will and Jada were going through a rough patch in their marriage and were “separated” at the time.
In the latest episode of “Red Table Talk”, the couple had a candid conversation to tell their side of what went down. Jada denied that her hubby had given August permission, but added she understood why the singer might had misinterpreted the situation.
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation. Due to the transformation from their marriage to (a) life partnership that they have spoken on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing,” August previously told radio host Angela Yee.
Jada later clarified, “The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself. I could actually see how he would perceive it as permission because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s also not a home-wrecker. Which he’s not.”
“One of the reasons I wanted to come to the table was because of the headlines. We specifically never said anything. We were purposely not saying anything. So any headline that says Jada said or Will said or The Smiths said is not true. We specifically never said anything, so coming to the table was like we just felt like it got to the point where you gotta say something,” Will added.
While this drama was taking place online, 50 Cent shared a private conversation he had with the 51-year-old Oscar nominee. However, when the 45-year-old rapper (real name Curtis Jackson III) started taking jabs, Will fired back, “F**k you 50.”
Netizens online didn’t take too kindly to 50 Cent’s behaviour either, calling him out on being disrespectful and telling him to mind his own business.
