Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith Address Prior Separation, August Alsina Relationship on ‘Red Table Talk’.In the episode of the Facebook Watch series, the couple revealed that Pinkett Smith and Alsina did have a romantic relationship four and a half years ago, when Pinkett Smith and Smith were separated.”We specifically never said anything,” Will Smith said. “Coming to the table was like we just felt like it got to the point where you gotta say something.”
“I was in a lot of pain. I was broken. I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside of yourself, and luckily enough, you and I were going through a process of healing in a much different manner,” Jada told Will. “I would definitely say we did everything we could to get away from each other only to realize that that wasn’t possible.”
“I just wanted to feel good, it had been so long since I felt good,” Pinket Smith told viewers on Red Table Talk on July 10. “And it was really a joy to just help heal someone. I think that has a lot to do with my co-dependency.”
August Alsina has made headlines this month about his relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith.
“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love and have a ton of love for her,” he said. “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.”
The one thing Pinkett Smith refutes from Alsina’s interview is that her husband gave Alsina his blessing. “The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself, but what August was probably trying to communicate — because I can actually see how he can perceive it as permission, because we were separated amicably — I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s not a home-wrecker, which he’s not,” she said. “As I came through and started to realize certain things about you and I, he decided to break all communication with me, which was totally understandable and I let that be,” she explained their breakup. “Hadn’t talked to him since.”
For all the fans, they also confirmed their devotion to one other. “One of the things that I’m deeply grateful for in this whole process between you and I is that we have really gotten to that new place of unconditional love,” Pinkett Smith said.
