Singer August Alsina has bared all in an emotional post on Instagram, addressing his affair with Jada Pinkett-Smith.
On Thursday (Jul 2) Jada took to Twitter to announce she will be bringing herself to The Red Table Talk – a platform where she allows celebrities to open up and speak their truth.
This came after Jada's rep had spoken on her behalf, claiming that August Alsina's claims about the affair were "absolutely not true”.
Shortly after Jada's response, Will's rep disputed claims that he gave August "a blessing" to proceed with his relationship with Jada. Willow Smith, the married couple's daughter, also cryptically responded to the claims on Instagram.
In a recent Instagram post, the 27-year-old singer opened up and bared his feelings online.
The "No Love" singer shared a photo of himself with radio personality Angela Yee, who he opened up to about the affair last week.

God said, We may grow weary and tired fighting in the fire, but we shall NOT be burned! The journey to freedom is a deeply complex, tricky, and turbulent road to tow; yet very necessary. Oppression comes in so many forms these days, beginning w/ physical slavery and bondage to the white man, then passed down generational programming that manifest into mental enslavement. Slaves to an idea, slaves to an image, slaves to a code of conduct, slaves to a picture you’ve created in your mind.. even if it contains many falsities.. & anything that differentiates from your “idea” & “image” feels like an attack. & I get it; not only do i get it but I’m also sorry you feel that way, BUT, The only attack here is against the invisible walls of silent societal construct and “code” we place upon each other & upon ourselves hidden behind the desires of others approval & acceptance; another form of slavery & bondage that blocks one’s truest self from showing & spirit flow. Be blocked and stuck for what? Live silent, pressed down crippled in fear for who ? Adversary is but a gift given to you to flourish. We are surround by so much disharmony in this external world, so it is my forever job to do whatever’s necessary to reach the gift of harmony within myself. Truth & Transparency makes us uncomfortable, yes, but i can’t apologize for that. A tower of truth can never fall, only a tower of lies can do that. My truth is MY truth, & its mine to own. There is no right or wrong here, it simply just IS. & I make room and have acceptance for your thoughts and opinions, regardless if I agree or not, you have that freedom to feel WHATEVER it is u feel because when you’re at TRUE peace, all of the noise and chatter becomes that of a whisper. My heart has no malice or hate toward anyone on this planet. I just simply want the chains off & I’m willing to DIE getting there. The gift of freedom is yours to have, God promises us that, but only if you’re willing. &God is not a man that HE should lie.. & I’m His SON, so neither would I. 🙏🏽 W/ that being said i should also say that, no one was side swiped by any conversation, everyone got courtesy calls time in advance. Wishing Everyone Big Love!

In regards to his conversation with Yee, August revealed 'No one was side swiped by any conversation, everyone got courtesy calls time in advance.'
August was originally introduced to Pinkett, 48, back in 2015 by her son Jaden Smith.
The singer claimed his and Jada's friendship grew close after she took him in after he revealed his drug addiction.
August also went on vacation with The Smiths in 2016 to Hawaii. He then attended the BET Awards with Jada back in 2017, which sparked the dating rumours.
