JADA Pinkett Smith’s former fling August Alsina has seemingly come out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
The singer, 30, discussed his new relationship while appearing on the reboot of VH1′s The Surreal Life on Monday.
It comes two years after 51-year-old actress Jada, admitted that she was involved in a years-long affair with August, which she referred to as an “entanglement”.
In the clip, taken from reality TV show The Surreal Life, August is seen taking a deep breath as he prepares to speak to the camera.
“It’s been a year from filming Surreal Life and my life has become even more surreal,” August begins.
“My life has kind of changed drastically and this show has kind of been a catalyst to that because of the fact that I had so much fear going into this journey, so much fear that I can feel my hand shaking now.”
The clip then cuts to a scene from the show as August is heard saying: “I would like a love that feels limitless.”
It then switched back to August in his confessional as he told the camera: “And then what do you know? Love showed up, but in a new way.
“I want to share that and really honor the person that I love and that loves me back and teaching my so much about love and healing.
“I wanna do that in front of the world because it defies all the constructs that one would say love is supposed to be or love should look like.”
He was then joined by a man who sat down next to him and as they hugged, August was heard saying: “I love you.”
August did not clarify his sexuality or divulge whether the relationship with the man was a romantic one.
August hit the headlines back in June 2020 when he said made a shocking claim during an interview posted on YouTube that he had an affair with Jada after her husband Will Smith allegedly allowed it to happen.
But on July 10, 2020, the couple addressed the rumors during an episode of Jada’s Red Table talk show on Facebook.
Although her husband had not explicitly given his blessing to her relationship, she confirmed that she had started seeing August while the couple was separated.
Will said: “We specifically never said anything. Coming to the table was like we just felt like it got to the point where you gotta say something.
August said Will “gave me his blessing” and talked about how he fully gave himself to Jada, saying he can die happy now having had that experience.
He said: “I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it – so much so to the point that I can die right now and be okay with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.”
But addressing August’s comments, Jada said: “The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself.
“I could actually see how he would perceive it as permission because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s also not a homewrecker. Which he’s not.”
Jada said her relationship with August ended, the Smiths reconciled, and she said she had not spoken to the singer in years.
August had first formed a friendship with the family in 2015 after being introduced by the couple’s 21-year-old son Jaden.
He even accompanied the famous clan on holiday to Hawaii in 2016, as well as attended the 2017 BET Awards with the mum-of-two.
Jada and Will met in 1994 and got engaged just two years later, welcoming their son, Jaden, into the world in 1999
