Relationship rumours have swirled around the pair for quite some time, with some convinced that Alsina and Jada had a secret love affair.
The 27-year-old singer formed a friendship with the Will Smith’s family in 2015 after being introduced by 21-year-old son, Jaden Smith.
August even accompanied the famous family on holiday to Hawaii in 2016, as well as attended the 2017 BET Awards with the 48-year-old mother-of-two.
During an interview on The Breakfast Club with Angela Yee , August said that he was in love with Jada, adding:
“I sat down with Will [Smith] and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership… he gave me his blessing.”
Discussing his relationship with Jada in detail, August added: “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.
“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.”
“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.
“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.”
It is not clear when their alleged affair ended, however, August Alsina described Pinkett Smith as “God’s Divinity” on her 47th birthday.

Jada and Will met in 1994 and got engaged just two years later, welcoming their son, Jaden, into the world in 1999. They had daughter Willow in 2000 but by 2004, rumours swirled that there was trouble in paradise for them.
