Alsina is also rumoured to be working on a tell-all book on his relationship with The Matrix Resurrections star, according to reports. 'August is getting ready to sign a huge money book contract that will expose his amorous liaisons with Jada,' according to a source at The Sun.

"He has always maintained that Will gave him permission to sleep with Jada, something they have publicly denied" the source claims.

"August will go into detail about his time with Jada and will also speak about how he spent time living in homes owned by Will when he was away filming. There are several publishers bidding for the books and August is lining up the best deal. He knows there are a lot of people fascinated by his story and is happy to tell it".

On an episode of her talk show Red Table Talk in July 2020, Jada admitted to her romance with Alsina. When she met August through her son Jaden, she said that she and Will were in an open relationship at the time.

"It all started with him just needing some help, me wanting to help his health, his mental state" she stated.

"As time went on, I got into a different type of entanglement with August" she added, before being asked to clarify what she meant by Will.

"It was a relationship, absolutely. I was in a lot of pain, and I was very broken. In the process of that relationship I definitely realized that you can't find happiness outside yourself". Jada then refuted August's allegation that Will had given them permission to conduct an affair.
