Jada Pinkett Smith admits to past relationship on her show with Will Smith

On the latest episode of her Facebook Watch Show Red Table Talk, Jada sat down with husband Will Smith to address allegations that she had an affair with singer August Alsina. Jada previously denied August's claims that they were once intimate, and said it was not true. Now, however, Jada says she and August were in a relationship while she and Will were temporarily separated. "This is a very personal journey that became very public," Jada shared. "About four and a half years ago," she explained, "I started a friendship with August. We actually became really good friends. It all started with him just needing some help and me wanting to help his health, his mental state." Will agreed that the entire Smith family offered their support as August battled an autoimmune disease; however his relationship with Jada was reaching a breaking point at the same time. The couple admitted they were confused by August's timing, given that their separation took place "several years ago," however Jada said it's only made their marriage stronger.
