American singer and songwriter, August Alsina, has revealed that he was in a romantic relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith and her husband, Will Smith was “gave his blessing”, OYOGist.com reports.
In an interview with Angela Lee, August Alsina said:
“I actually sat down with Will (Smith) and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership … he gave me his blessing.”
“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 OK with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody,” he said.
“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.”
The interview is said to promote Alsina’s new album; The Product III:stateofEMERGEncy.
