Jada Pinkett Smith has admitted she did have an affair with singer August Alsina while married to Will Smith.
The 48-year-old sat down with her husband for an intimate conversation on her Facebook show, Red Table Talk and revealed she developed a friendship with August around four years ago.
She said around the same time, the married couple were going through a ‘difficult time’ and they had ‘basically broken up’.
The bombshell tell-all comes after both actors denied August’s claims that Will gave him his blessing to have a relationship with Jada.
In Friday’s episode of Jada’s web series, the Hollywood couple sat opposite each other as they set the record straight and reaffirmed their commitment to each other.
Jada began explaining that the couple met August through their son Jaden and recalled that the Louisiana-born singer, who would have been 23 at the time, was ‘really sick’.
“And it all started with him just needing some help, me wanting to help his health, his mental state.
“The outpouring for him from our family was initially about his health,” she said.
“We found all those different resources to help pull him through and from there you and I were going through a very difficult time.”
Will admitted, ‘I was done with you,’ while Jada added that they decided to separate for a ‘period of time.’
