Rumors of August Alsina being in a May-December relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith have been around for a minute
In a new interview with Angela Yee, Alsina confirmed it was all true. The 27-year old explained that he was introduced to the 48-year old in 2015 by her son Jaden. From there the relationship blossomed and Alsina fell in love.
“And I really loved a person, I experienced that and I know what that feels like — and some people never get that in this lifetime,” Alsina told Yee. ” I know that I am completely blessed and this conversation is difficult because it is so much, that it would be hard for people to understand but — once it starts to affect me and my livelihood — I have to speak up about my truth.”
According to Alsina, Jada's husband Will Smith gave his blessings.
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation … 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 have a ton of love for her. 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.”
It's long been speculated that Will and Jada have an open marriage. We guess that speculation was correct.
