When Jada Pinkett-Smith openly acknowledged her transgression in her marriage to Will Smith by engaging in a romantic entanglement with August Alsina, a close associate noted that this revelation marked a significant turning point. The source emphasized that there was no going back from this revelation.
In June 2020, Jada confessed on her show, “The Red Table Talk,” to the “entanglement” she had with August Alsina, who was a friend of their son, Jaden. This revelation only came to light after August publicly shared his feelings for the 52-year-old actress, who was then married to Will Smith.
Surprisingly, it was only recently that Jada announced that she had been “separated” from Will since 2016. Sources now suggest that Will’s apparent supportiveness in response to her affair was merely a facade.
According to a source close to the couple, Jada effectively ended their marriage when she publicly addressed her actions on “The Red Table Talk.” Will initially had difficulty accepting her infidelity but chose to protect her dignity, even as they secretly lived apart. This situation has had a profound impact on their children, Willow and Jaden, who are reportedly struggling with the fallout. Despite the circumstances, Will had unwaveringly defended his wife’s loyalty during their marriage. Jada’s recent revelations have further complicated their relationship, especially in the wake of her comments regarding the Oscars incident with Chris Rock, which did not contribute positively to their already strained marriage. Despite over two decades of marriage, the couple now faces significant challenges as they navigate their future.
