August Alsina On Relationship With Jada Pinkett Smith: I Could Understand Why It Would Look Like I’m Reckless

R&B singer August Alsina is continuing to explain the decision behind speaking publicly about his relationship with actress Jada Pinkett Smith earlier this summer during a sit down interview with The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee. He tells People:

“I really am a private person.”

That may be the reason it took the singer as long as it did to reveal the details of his relationship with Smith.  According to reports, the two had been surrounded by rumors that they were romantically involved for years before it came out on June 30.

August Alsina explained:

“People have never known much about my love life because it’s not important.”

He continued,

“I never really cared about what people thought of me, but my personal life started to seep into my business life. There were certain falsities about me, and it affected my business relationships.”

Now, months after the big reveal, August Alsina admits that he can understand why he could look reckless or disrespectful.

“I could understand why it would look like I’m reckless or disrespectful so it really started to affect my livelihood, and I’m never okay with that. I got three kids to look after. Kill me, hate me, stone me, but bury me an honest man. All I can do is tell the truth.”

Angela Yee told theJasmineBRAND exclusively In July how she felt about August Alsina opening up about his relationship.

“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.

She continued,
And you can’t negate that someone’s feelings were hurt, and they wanted to tell their story.
Under the pressure to make a statement of her own after August’s revelation, Jada Pinkett Smith opened up about their relationship on her talk show. During the episode, in which her husband actor Will Smith appeared, Jada explained that she and Will were separated at the time of her situation-ship with August.
