Jada Pinkett Smith’s ex August Alsina held back when discussing his love affair with the actress, according to the radio host who conducted their bombshell interview last month.  

Angela Yee, who interviewed August, 27, in June, believes the singer had more to say about his relationship with Jada, 48, during their conversation, but refrained from doing so.

‘I think he could’ve said a lot more regarding Jada and he didn’t,’ Angela, 44, told Page Six. ‘I believe he was truly hurt about his break-up with Jada.’

Another insider believes August was attempting to protect Jada and her husband Will Smith, whom was separated from his wife at the time of the romance.  

‘You can look at August and see that there’s a certain amount of pain that he is feeling, and you can hear in his words that he’s trying to speak his truth while still protecting the Smiths,’ an unidentified Hollywood actress told Page Six. 

‘Jada [previously] said she was mentoring him . . . what kind of mentoring was she giving him where he felt he gave his all to a relationship that has left him devastated and hurt. You did not help him, you helped destroy him,’ the actress continued.  

August revealed last month he had been romantically involved with Jada when she was separated from her husband Will Smith.

Ordinarily he wouldn’t discuss the affair, but August said he’s ‘lost money, friendships, relationships’ over the rumors. 

The singer told Angela on June 30 that he was in love with Jada and said: ‘I sat down with Will [Smith] and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership… he gave me his blessing.’ 

August said the two became very close, and holidayed together with the family in Hawaii a year later and they even attended the 2017 BET Awards together.

He said: ‘I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love and have a ton of love for her.

‘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. 

Matters of the heart: The singer told Angela on June 30 that he was in love with Jada and said: ‘I sat down with Will [Smith] and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership… he gave me his blessing’ 

Denied: The couple’s representatives initially denied claims Will gave his blessing to August, but Jada ultimately came clean about the affair not long after on an episode of her series, Red Table Talk (pictured 2015)

‘And I really loved a person, I experienced that and I know what that feels like, and some people never get that in this lifetime.

‘I know that I am completely blessed and this conversation is difficult because it is so much, that it would be hard for people to understand but, once it starts to affect me and my livelihood, I have to speak up about my truth.’

Jada said her friendship with August developed into a romantic relationship when she had separated from Will.

Split up: The couple were essentially over by the time the ‘entanglement’ occurred 

The actress befriended August during a difficult point in her marriage with Will four years ago. 

Initially, Jada was focused on August’s health – but the friendship ultimately developed into something more. 

‘As time went on, I got into a different type of entanglement with August,’ Jada explained. 

Jada addressed August’s claim that Will gave her ‘permission’ to have an affair. 

‘The only person that can give permission in that circumstance is myself,’ she insisted. 

More than friends: Initially, Jada was focused on August’s health – but the friendship ultimately developed into something more

‘But what August was probably trying to communicate because I could see how he could see it as permission because we were separated amicably, and I think he wanted to make it clear he’s not a home wrecker, because he’s not.’

When Will pushed Jada to clarify what she meant by ‘entanglement’ she responded, ‘It was a relationship, absolutely.’

Jada continued: ‘I was in a lot of pain, and I was very broken. In the process of that relationship I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside yourself.’

Once Jada decided to repair her marriage with Will, however, August cut contact with her and the relationship ended.
