*Angela Yee has opened up about her interview with August Alsina, claiming he was respectful while dropping the tea about his past sexual relationship with married actress Jada Pinkett Smith.
In an exclusive interview with theJasmineBRAND, the radio personality said Alsina told his truth to heal his broken heart.
“I think the main thing was- let’s not forget this was somebody who thought they were in a situation, and his feelings were hurt. And you can’t negate that someone’s feelings were hurt, and they wanted to tell their story.
She added, And I feel like there’s so much more he could’ve said, and the details are still kept private. The fact is, they were in an entanglement – or whatever you wanna call it – and it is what it is. Will knew about it. It wasn’t a secret. He wasn’t messing up their marriage. August went through a lot…if that’s what he had to do to heal himself- to tell the world, ‘This is what happened to me,’ then it is what it is.”

Pinkett Smith admitted during a recent episode of her “Red Table Talk” series that she had an “entanglement” with the singer about four years ago. Joined by her hubby Will Smith on the show, the couple claim the affair occurred while they were separated.
“‘Red Table Talk’ is known for telling the truth about things. And so, if this is part of your truth, then you should tell it,” said Yee of the episode. “It was the best-rated show they ever had on Facebook Watch! The biggest episode they ever had!…I think he was very respectful in the way that he told the story. He wasn’t like, ‘F*ck that h*e!’ He was just like, ‘I was in love. I had deep feelings.’ She probably didn’t have a choice…”
Yee noted that the Jada August situation is “a lesson learned for everybody.”
“And also, I just wanna say people have all types of situations when it comes to their relationships and their marriages. They have times where they take a break, and things happen…none of this should be a surprise,” she added. “For some reason, it’s such a big story. I didn’t think it was gonna be as crazy as it was…I think everybody knew they were in this relationship. It was not a surprise.”

Michael B. Jordan to Adapt ‘Static Shock’ Comic Book for Warner Bros. and DC
*Michael B. Jordan is producing a movie based on the DC and Milestone Comics character Static, popularly known as Static Shock.
Jordan announced the project Friday on Twitter, which he will produce through his Warner Bros.-based Outlier Society production company.
Here’s what Variety says of the plot: “The character is a teen who transforms into a superhero with electromagnetic powers. A “Static Shock” animated series aired on Kids’ WB in the early 2000s and was one of the few superhero series starring a Black character.”
“I’m proud to be a part of building a new universe centered around Black superheroes; our community deserves that,” Jordan said in a statement. “Outlier Society is committed to bringing to life diverse comic book content across all platforms and we are excited to partner with Reggie and Warner Bros. on this initial step.”

Virgil Hawkins, a.k.a. Static Shock, was created by Milestone Media and DC Comics in the 1990s. Jordan will produce a movie adaptation of the comic book, which was unveiled by Reginald Hudlin during August’s DC FanDome.
“One of the things we’re really excited about, we really want to live up to the name of the company, Milestone Media,” said Hudlin. “When we spoke to Jim [Lee] about reviving the Milestone line, we said ‘Look, we all know this has been a hit comic book and hit animated series. It’s time to expand back into all those areas and then some.’ So we’re in serious conversations about, as we’re launching the comic book series, developing the ‘Static Shock’ movie. That will be a theatrical feature film.”
During the DC FanDome panel where the film’s development was announced, Phil LaMarr, who voiced Static on the animated series in the early 2000s, said, “Virgil is what I always wanted as a comic book kid growing up: Black Spider-Man. A good story can make you live it, feel it, and when it does, it resonates on a whole other level….It touched on archetypes as a comic fan that I loved, but also touched on my life as a Black man in the real world.”
Jordan will next appear in the thriller “Without Remorse,” scheduled to be released next year.
Here’s Why Rapper Bobby Shmurda Was Denied Parole
*Court documents have been released showing why Bobby Shmurda was denied parole in September.
We previously reported… the rapper will continue to serve his max prison sentence until December 2021, according to Variety.
Bobby has been locked up since December 2014, when more than 15 defendants were charged with various crimes, including murder, attempted murder and drug dealing. Shmurda was facing a maximum sentence of 8 – 25 years on charges of conspiracy to commit murder, reckless endangerment, and drug and gun possession, EUR previously reported.
TMZ obtained court docs from the parole hearing and board members denied the Bobby’s release after he’s had “multiple” violations in jail. The New York-native is accused of having a shank, fighting, and drug possession.
Here’s more from TMZ:
Shmurda sees his situation differently with transcripts revealing that he made his own case to be freed. He said he doesn’t have impulsive behavior anymore, considers others in his decision-making, and walks away from bad situations when they occur. After telling the parole board that he wants to resume his music career when he’s released and become involved in outreach programs with troubled youth, he also said that he now sees himself as a “leader” rather than a follower. Additionally, he wants to get a high school G.E.D. when he gets out.
Unfortunately, he has to serve his entire seven-year sentence before that happens.
“Following his Sept. 15, 2020 interview with the Board of Parole, Ackquille Pollard was denied release and given a hold until the maximum expiration of his sentence on December 11, 2021,” a spokesperson from the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision told Complex in September.

“Both 50 and James (Frey) have never shied away from controversial, boundary-pushing material and have made massive global cultural impacts from their raw creative energy,” Roth said in a statement. “We want to bring that same fun and danger to this new fantastic slate of elevated scary films. We want to make the movies others are too afraid to make.”

“Eli, James, Roger, Michael, and 3BlackDot will be great partners in G-Unit Film and Television’s takeover of the horror genre. I can’t wait to show the world what we’re building,” 50 added.
Details of the projects have yet to be revealed.
In related news, you can dive into the history of horror with Roth in his AMC docuseries “Eli Roth’s History of Horror.”
Roth serves as executive producer and host the series, currently its second season.
“Horror has always been the black sheep of the film genre,” Roth tells Page Six in a new interview. “And nobody has ever really catalogued the genre in a way that put the movie into a historical perspective and showed what they were really about. I always say the blood stains your eyes, but once you get past that, you can see incredible technique, style, skill, performances.”
