Alsina confirming link with Jada
They admitted that when Jada began to start seeing Alsina, it was during a difficult time between the star couple. They confirmed the issue after a recent interview with the 27-year old singer.
A statement relayed by Alsina on another interview, admitted to having been romantically linked with Jada for years. He further revealed that he also talked to Will, husband of Jada for more than two decades. He also admitted to losing money and even relationships when rumors began on his involvement with Jada.
In the interview with Angela Yee, he mentioned how he was given blessing by the actor: “I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation. Due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership that they have spoken on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing.”
Clearing up the issue
On the couple’s latest episode of “Red Table Talk,” Jada provided some details on the issue of her romantic “entanglement” with the singer. According to her, she befriended Alsina years ago, and throughout the time in between, the couple had some difficulties with their relationship. During that rough patch with Will she cleared that they were “separated amicably.”
The online show clarified the comment of Alsina being granted consent by Will. The 48-year old actress said that it is only she who can give that permission. “The only person that can give permission in that particular instance is myself,” Jade said. She shared that she understood why Alanis may have thought that way, saying: “I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s also not a homewrecker. Which he’s not.”
She further revealed being hurt and broken during that time, but realized was impossible to be separated from each other.
Jada ended her relationship with the singer and it has been years since they last talked, and reconciled with the 51-year old actor.
Several times had the Smith couple been rumored to being in an “open marriage.” They have denied such allegations before, but previously they claimed to being in a “life partnership.” On 2018, Hollywood actor Will Smith revealed in a podcast that the couple consider each other “life partners,” claiming, “You realize you are literally with somebody for the rest of your life.” He further added that Jada has his support for as long as they shall live.
