*Last week on her Facebook Watch Series, Jada Pinkett Smith, with her husband present, confirmed that she was involved in an “entanglement” with singer August Alsina

During the conversation, which took place on an episode of “Red Table Talk,” Smith also explained why he is speaking out about his wife’s affair, something they both previously denied (through their reps).

“One of the reasons I wanted to come to the table was because the headlines. We specifically never said anything. We were purposely not saying anything. So any headline that says Jada said or Will said or The Smiths said is not true. We specifically never said anything, so coming to the table was like we just felt like it got to the point where you gotta say something,” said Smith. 

The Smiths have responded to Alsina’s claim in an interview that he and Jada were engaged in a romantic relationship, with Will Smith’s permission, while she and her husband were separated. 

Will and Jada have reached a point in their marriage where they reject the husband and wife titles and are now “life partners.”

“I was done with your ass,” Will said to his wife of 22 years on her “Red Table Talk” show. 

“We broke up,” Jada added. “We were over.”

She went on to admit that she got into an “entanglement” with August, making clear that she did not consider it a “transgression” because she and her hubby were on a break at the time.

Meanwhile, a Hollywood actress who is a close friend of the Smiths, calls Jada’s admission about her relationship with August “strategic.”

“Now, because [August] is speaking up, now you want to have a ‘Red Table’?” the actress said. “I will tell you what’s gonna happen. I bet you [Will and Jada] will be glorified.”

Insiders say August is holding back. 

“I think he could’ve said a lot more regarding Jada and he didn’t,” Yee told The Post. “I believe he was truly hurt about his break-up with Jada.”

According to a family friend, Will and Jada initially brought August into their Southern California home because he was struggling.

“Will and Jada have big hearts, they look after people,” the family friend said. “Look, August is troubled — he’s had a lot of things to deal with and they wanted to help him.”

The Hollywood actress told The Post: “You can look at August and see that there’s a certain amount of pain that he is feeling, and you can hear in his words that he’s trying to speak his truth while still protecting the Smiths.

“Jada [previously] said she was mentoring him . . . what kind of mentoring was she giving him where he felt he gave his all to a relationship that has left him devastated and hurt?

“You did not help him, you helped destroy him.”

According to Yee, after she interviewed August in June, “he sent the part about Jada to [the family] so that they would not be blindsided.”

Jada claims Alsina broke off all ties with her once she and Will sorted out their marital drama. 

“I let that be and I haven’t talked to him since,” she said.
