Jada Pinkett Smith Confirms August Alsina Relationship: 'I Just Wanted To Feel Good'

Jada Pinkett Smith said she was going to bring herself to the table and sure enough, she did.

The actress revealed the highly anticipated episode of Red Table Talk on Facebook Watch on Friday (July 10) after holding off for a week due to various circumstances occurring throughout the country. She sat down across from her husband Will Smith and finally put to bed all of the questions surrounding her relationship with August Alsina.

"I got into an entanglement with August ... a relationship," Jada said after revealing that she and her husband of 22 years had been separated at the time. "I was in a lot of pain. I was broken."

She added, "I just wanted to feel good. It had been so long since I feel good, right? And it felt good to help heal someone. I think it dealt a lot with my co-dependency ... needing to fix, needing to help, there's something about that childhood trauma that feels as though it can be fixed through fixing people versus fixing me."

According to Jada's timeline, the two got involved with one another as she and Will were separated in 2016. It initially began as a friendship and then evolved into something more. When Will and Jada reconciled, that's when Alsina cut all communication to Jada. The Smiths did dispel the notion that Will gave August "his blessing" to date Jada as the only person who would have been able to give Jada permission to date anybody is Jada.

The singer recently spoke on the relationship in an interview promoting his new album as well as his journey through health challenges and the loss of close family.

"People can have whatever ideas that they like. But what I'm not OK with my character being in question ..." Alsina

"I was sure I never was gon' speak to you again," the I Am Legend star said. "The fact that I'm speaking to you again is a miracle."
