As expected, Jada Pinkett Smith took her to the Red Table.
The actress, 48, discussed the allegations that she and August Alsina, 27, had an affair while the “Girls Trip” star was already married to the actor Will Smith.
Jada admitted that about four and a half years ago, she and Will had parted with the intention of divorce, and had a “relationship” with Alsina when she was parted.
“I started a friendship with August and we actually became really, really good friends,” Jada explained in the episode — which was released on Facebook Watch on Friday — and added that she wanted to help the musician with his “mental state” and found the resources to help him get through the troubled times.
Jada said that as it was going on, she and Will were going through a tough time and “broke up.”
“We’ve been separating for a while,” she said, so that the two could figure out what makes them happy. “We were over in both their minds,” she said.
“I got into a different kind of entanglement with August,” Jada said. “It was a relationship, absolutely. I’ve been in a lot of pain. I’ve been very broken. I’ve definitely realized in the process of that relationship that you can’t find happiness outside of yourself.”
She also wanted to make it clear that Alsina is “not a homewrecker,” but that she and Will “have been going through a process of healing in a very different way” as a couple.
“I just wanted to feel good ,” Jada said as to why she started dating Alsina. “It was a real joy to help heal someone.” Jada cited her “co-dependency” issues as one of the reasons why she was involved with Alsina.
“I don’t see it as a transgression at all,” she said. “Through that particular process, I’ve learned so much about myself and I’ve been able to truly overcome a lot of emotional immaturity [and] emotional vulnerability.”
Then Alsina cut off all contact with Jada and “she hasn’t spoken to him since then.”
Rumors began in June when Alsina claimed in “The Breakfast Club” that he had a romantic relationship with Jada.
“I’ve been totally committed to this relationship for years of my life, and I truly and truly, truly, deeply love and have a ton of love for it,” said Alsina. “I’ve dedicated myself to it, I’ve given my full self to it — so much so that I can die right now and be OK with knowing that I’ve really given myself to someone.”
Will and Jada were married in 1997 and had two children , a son, Jaden, 21, and a daughter, Willow, 19. The “Bad Boys” actor also has a 27-year-old son, Trey, from his previous relationship.
