American actress Jada Pinkett has publicly admitted cheating on her husband Will Smith with singer August Alsina.
While she admitted indeed she went a stray, she insisted her relationship with Will had ended the time she hooked up with Alsina.
Addressing the accusations that had earlier been made by Alsina, Jada through her Red Table Talk show alongside her hubby rubbished claims she was still married when she cheated, confirming she had long been separated from Will Smith.
“I thought it was important that we come to the table to clear the air. Somebody made a statement for me that was not a statement I made that went — cray cray. A relationship, it was a relationship, absolutely. I was in a lot of pain, I was broken and in the process of that relationship, I definitely realised that you cannot find happiness outside of yourself. And luckily enough, you and I were also going through a process of healing in a much different manner." Jada pointed out.
As earlier reported by nearly all worldwide media entities, Alsina had sensationally claimed that he was in a physical relationship with Jada while she was still married to Will.
Then, Alsina even added that Jada had gotten 'permission' to date by the Bad Boys star himself.
Jada reiterated that Alsina came to their home sick and in need of medical assistance but her bond with the musician grew deeper with time hence their entanglement.
"I got into an entanglement with August." she told her hubby on her face during the show.
She said she was longing for companionship since it was long since she felt really good and insisted while she was using the 'affair' to heal herself, she was equally healing Alsina.
"It had been so long since I felt good. It was also a joy to help heal somebody," referring to her relationship with Alsina.
The mother of two wrapped up by confirming she ended things with the singer a long time ago and have not been in contact ever since.
"I let that be and hadn't talked to him since. August and I haven't talked in so long, so this all seemed very strange." she said.
The two, who have been married since 1997 and have son Jaden, 22, and daughter Willow, 19, sat down on Jada's Facebook Live talk show where they addressed their infidelity issue.
This came about two weeks after Alsina in a radio interview disclosed he had an affair with Jada in 2015.
