“We ride together, we die together. Bad marriage for life.”
This is what Will and Jada Smith say on Friday at the “Red Table Talk” referencing his “Bad Boys for Life” movie in 2020 as they burst into laughter.
Following recent reports about Jada Smith and August Alsina’s relationship, Jada explains what really happened between her and August on her show,” Red Table Talk” on Friday,July 10, 2020.
According to Jada Smith, 4½ years ago she started a friendship with August and they became really good friends and from there she and her husband, Will Smith were going through a very difficult time, explaining this, Will described that time as a time they decided to figure out how to make themselves happy.
However, Jada described that particular time as indefinite and from there had a different entanglement with August.
According to Jada, Will Smith never gave them permission like reports say as she saw it as though the only person she could give permission in that particular time was herself.
She added that since she was separated with Will and understands that August saw it as permission and wanted to make it clear that he is not a home breaker. In defence of this, Jada defended that August is not a home breaker.
“We were separated so he saw it as permission but we were separated amicably. And I think he also wants to make it clear that he is not a home breaker…. which he is not” she stated.
Will asked Jada to “say clearly what happened.”
“It was a relationship, absolutely,” Jada affirmed. She was in a lot of emotional pain at the time, she said and was looking for happiness outside of herself. But she doesn’t view what happened as a “transgression” at all.
“Through that particular journey, I learned so much about myself,” she said on the Red Table Talk.
The couple explained that they had already discussed this. But it seems they had to come out to explain to the public after August Alsina spilt it to the public in June when he told “The Breakfast Club” that he had been in a romantic relationship with Jada Smith-allegedly with Will’s “blessing” about 4½ years ago.
The couple seems to have learnt about themselves and their marriage as a whole.
“I think it could feel weird for people that we’re laughing and talking about it,” Will said. “But our experiences of working through it, fighting through it, talking through it and therapizing through it — I think that the ‘why now?’ is weird.”
Jada Smith continued by saying how grateful she was for the experience which Will added, he was not certain on speaking to her again.
Jada:” I am grateful for the journey that you and I have had together because I feel like a lot of couples go through that experience.”
Will: “I wasn’t sure I was gonna speak to you again— the fact that I’m speaking to you again is a miracle.” he stated.
