On Monday, August Alsina had come out to the public as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. He had been with Jada Pinkett Smith before.
The Kissin’ on My Tattoos singer, who is now 30 years old, talked about his new relationship when he appeared on the new season of The Surreal Life on VH1. After that, a picture was taken of a man sitting next to August. The two of them were hugging, and August mouthed “I love you” to the man.
It comes about two years after Jada, who is now 51, admitted to having an affair with the R&B singer, which she famously called an “entanglement.”
At the start of the clip, August is shown saying that he wants “a love that feels limitless.”
The scene then changed to the singer sitting in a confessional and talking to the camera. He said,
And then what do you know? Love showed up, but in a new way.
He went on:
I want to share that and really honor the person that I love and that loves me back and teaching my so much about love and healing.

I want to do that in front of the world because it defies all the constructs that one would say love is supposed to be or love should look like.
August didn’t say more about his sexuality or if they were dating or not.
The last picture in the video was of August smiling, with the words “‘shedding his old skin, in order to begin again.” written under it.
In 2020, Jada admitted that she had an affair with August. She even had her husband, Will Smith, come on her talk show, Red Table Talk, the year before to talk about the affair in front of the whole world.
It has also been said that August, who was only 23 when he met Jada for the first time, is planning to write a tell-all book about their sexual life.
August is getting ready to sign a big money book deal which will detail his romantic liaisons with Jada,
a source claims.
He has always maintained that Will gave him permission to sleep with Jada, something they have publicly denied.
The source adds:
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.
Will said that he and Jada have an open relationship when he was promoting his own book a year ago. Jada said that she has “never believed in a traditional marriage.”
In July 2020, the couple talked about Jada’s affair with August on her honest talk show Red Table Talk. This got them a lot of attention and made headlines.
She started by saying that the couple met August through their son Jaden, who is now 22. She remembered that the singer, who would have been 23 at the time, was “really sick” (as he battled a genetic liver disease.)
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.
After Jada said the following, Will finally told the truth about it:
I was done with you,’ while Jada added that they decided to separate for a ‘period of time.
And then what did you do, Jada?
Will asked, urging his wife to keep talking.
As time went on, I got into a different type of entanglement with August,
The mother of two then answered August’s claim that Will had given her “permission” to have an affair with another man.
Will pushed Jada to explain what she meant by the word “entanglement,” and Jada replied,
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.
She didn’t agree with August’s claim that Will had approved of the affair. Instead, she said that the two of them were apart at the time.
People all over the world were shocked by the affair, and many eyes were on Will to see how the Hollywood star would react to the news.
August said that Jada and he were dating, but at first, Jada denied it. She finally admitted it by saying, “there’s some healing that needs to happen… so I’m bringing myself to the Red Table.”
