*Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are reportedly on vacation in the Bahamas, days after the actress admitted to having an affair with singer August Alsina.

The couple was spotted at the Albany, which is part-owned by Tiger Woods, Page Six reports. 

According to the outlet, they were joined by their daughter, Willow, 19, at the Caribbean getaway, which Forbes called “one of the most exclusive resorts in the world.” 

During Friday’s filming of Jada’s “Red Table Talk” series on Facebook, the couple addressed Alsina’s claims that he and Pinkett Smith had a relationship that Will gave his “blessing” to.  

“I was done with your ass,” he said to his wife on the virtual show, adding: “Marriages have that. We decided that we were going to go separate for a period of time, and you go figure out how to make yourself happy, and I’ll figure out how to make myself happy … I really felt like we could be over.”

Pinkett Smith agreed, saying, “At that point in time, it was indefinite.”

A family friend told Page Six that the couple initially brought August into their home because he was struggling.

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

The source added: “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.”

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 on “Red Table Talk”.

LisaRaye McCoy Shares Details About Explosive Argument with Stacey Dash on ‘Single Ladies’ Set

*LisaRaye McCoy has offered some insight into why Stacey Dash quit the ‘Single Ladies” show that they starred in together. 

The Queen Latifah produced series aired on VH1 for three seasons with the fourth season on BET.

Dash did not return for season 2, and at the time she said her exit in 2011 was personal, as she had to focus on raising her kids and the shooting schedule made parenting quite challenging, theJasminebrand.com reports. 

“I truly enjoyed playing Val on Single Ladies, but I have decided to leave the show.  I have to be back in L.A. with my children right now and the Single Ladies shooting location makes that impossible,” Dash said.  “I wish VH1 the best of luck with the show and in maintaining the strong fanbase we developed in season one.”

McCoy had nothing but positive words to say about her co-star at the time. 

“Believe me, I wish things had worked out because I thought Stacey and I were great together. She was my age and we were working it. It was sex symbol to sex symbol. But she didn’t want to be there. I was disappointed about that. She had some issues. I’m not sure exactly what those issues were. In the end, she and VH1 made a decision,” she said. 

She also confirmed that she and Dash had an explosive argument on set. 

“Yes, there was a disagreement over a scene. And it really wasn’t with me.  It was with the director. I think it was about 2 or 3 a.m., and we’d been shooting all damn day,” McCoy explained. “Stacey tried to argue with the director about a line. And I’m like: ‘Girl, if you don’t say what the director wants you to say.’ It wasn’t that serious at first, but it went there.”

In a recent interview with Viviva A. Fox, LisaRaye shared new details about the argument, saying: “It’s like 2:00 in the morning and we’re still at it. And she gets an attitude and she doesn’t say her line to me.  So even the director was like, ‘Stacey, look at [LisaRaye’s character, Keisha] when you deliver that line and then leave.’ So, by the fourth or fifth take I’m thinking, ‘This is just a one-liner, like, girl, what’s the problem?’ And that’s what I say.”

Continuing, “And she looks and rolls her eyes, but you know I don’t think nothing … but honey child, when I tell you when the director had to come out and speak to her, I had walked over to Stacey and said, ‘Just say the line,’ she put her finger in my face and said, ‘You can’t tell me anything.’”

LisaRaye said she went “went Southside Chicago” on Stacey.

“I just said, ‘Stacy, if you don’t take your motherf–king finger out my face…’ but that’s all I had to say because by that time she was taking her heels off and strutting to her dressing room,” LisaRaye continued, “and I was like hold on, ‘You got more to say? Because I can meet you in your dressing room! You want it, you can have it.’”

Dash reportedly showed up to work the next day with a team of security to protect her from LisaRaye.

“She absolutely did,” said McCoy. “And I never said this part before, but she came with security and I was like, ‘Oh, what’s going on today?’ and they was like, ‘You! She brought them for your a**.  I said, ‘Get outta here!’ I went to the d*mn producers I said, ‘Do you know how this would look if this gets out? That she had to bring security to set for me? It will make me look like I’m a bully and y’all ain’t got my back?’”

LisaRaye stayed in her dressing room until producers handled the drama with Dash. 

“I said you know what, I’m bigger than this, I came here to be professional, I came here to be an actress. I came to get my check,” she added. “Let me go ahead and do what I need to do because one monkey don’t stop no show. And then she wasn’t really that relevant or important to me either.  I just really didn’t think it was that big. I thought it would be something she would get over, but she just carried it on, and then I heard she had problems with wardrobe and they start coming telling their stories, and then the producers … yeah, I was just like, ‘Girl, please.”

*Tamar Braxton has called out WE tv yet again, and this time she’s pissed over the first trailer for season 7 of “Braxton Family Values” that was released on Oct. 21.

 In the superteaser showing fans what they can expect this season, cameras captured Toni Braxton’s reaction when the family learns about Tamar’s suicide attempt. 

Evelyn Braxton explains, “Toni called. She told me that Tamar was rushed to the hospital because she tried to commit suicide.” Toni added, “It seemed like a dream, a bad dream.”

Soon after the clip dropped, Tamar took to Instagram to slam the network for using her pain for a ratings ploy, E! News reports. 

“After waking up to that disgusting trailer…F–K @wetv and whomever else participating for using my pain for their pleasure and ratings‼” she wrote on social media. “At some point this abuse HAS to STOP‼ and P.S. IM NOT FILMING FOR THIS SEASON! THEY ARE DOING THIS WHILE IM NOT ON THE SHOW‼ #SCUMBAGS–T.” 

Over the summer, Tamar was found unconscious by her then-boyfriend David Adefeso at their Los Angeles hotel. She received treatment at a local hospital and later transferred to a mental health facility.

I’m ready to pour some pain into my music…

A post shared by Tamar Braxton (@tamarbraxton) on

In an Instagram post, Tamar said WE tv contributed to her mental health decline. 

“Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave,” Tamar said in a statement shared on Instagram. “I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over two months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing.”

She claimed, “My cry for help went totally ignored. However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most.”

Following Tamar’s allegations, WE tv said they were ending “all future work” with the singer.

“Tamar Braxton has been an important part of our network family for more than a decade,” the statement said. “As she focuses on her health and recovery at what is clearly a difficult and personal time, we will work with her representatives to honor her request to end all future work for the network. We wish her nothing but the best.” 

The new season of “Braxton Family Values” returns Nov. 5 at 9 p.m. on WE tv. Scroll up and watch the new teaser above.
