Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, in an intimate conversation, finally revealed that she had an affair. The couple’s marriage was under the social media radar for long now, but the fans were astonished to find out that Jada had a fling with musician August Alsina when she and Smith were separated.
Jada revealed the news on her series ‘Red Table Talk’. The American actress said that what started four years ago as a family effort to help R&B artist Alsina with his health became a different kind of entanglement, and this was when she and Smith were going through a rough patch and thought their marriage was almost over.
“An entanglement? A relationship,” Smith said, urging his wife, Jada to be more specific, alluding to the Facebook Watch show’s dedication to the candid discussion.
“Yes, it was a relationship. Absolutely. I was in a lot of pain. I was very broken. Now, in the process of that relationship, I definitely realise that you can’t find happiness outside of yourself. … I would definitely say we did everything that we could to get away from each other, only to realise that that wasn’t possible,” she replied.
The actress emphasised that she did what she did because she wanted to feel good and it was a joy to help someone else. Towards the end, Jada reveals that she had not been in touch with the R&B artist for years now and that it is weird of him bringing up the entire matter now, she feels.
The couple got married in 1997 and are blessed with two children, Jaden and Willow. The duo appeared uncomfortable at numerous times during their conversation on the talk show.
