Since the news that August Alsina and Jada Pinkett were, in fact, an item at one point in time, it’s all anyone can talk about. On the Fox Soul show that she co-hosts, Lisa Raye slammed the actress for her relationship with the singer.
Jada and Will Smith hosted a special Red Table Talk to address the bombshell interview that August completed with Angela Yee where he revealed that he was in love with Jada. The only thing that was disputed was that Will gave him permission to date his wife.
The Hollywood couple explained that when they met August, he was extremely ill due to his autoimmune disease. Jada went on to say that they took him under their wings to take care of him and help him heal.
After deciding that they needed to separate, Will and Jada were headed in the direction of a divorce when she got ‘entangled’ with the singer.
She describes this as something that happened over four years ago which means August was around 23-years-old at the time. There is a 21-year age gap between the two.
LisaRaye said on Out Loud With Claudia Jordan: ‘I think and I feel that he [Alsina] was a baby. Now I’m all for if you want to date somebody younger, go for it. But because of his circumstance and why in which he came to her, wounded and hurt, and in her lap – how in the hell did he get from off her lap, and then you [Smith] got onto the d**k? I don’t understand.’
She went on to say that the entire situation was inappropriate because she was introduced to August by her son, Jaden Smith.
August was admittedly going through a hard time in his life and Lisa believes that Jada complicated things even more.
