Will & Jada: that shock interview and how we all became 'entangled'
The term “entanglement” has been trending on Twitter since Saturday, thanks to actress Jada Pinkett-Smith’s interview on the Red Table Talk with her husband, Will Smith. The Girls Trip star took herself to the table to address claims by singer August Alsina that they had a brief romantic relationship with Will’s “permission”.
Jada admitted that she did date August “about four-and-a-half years ago” when she and Will were separated.
“We were over. From there, as time went on I got into a different kind of entanglement with August.”
Will asked her to be clear about “entanglement”.
“I think you need to say clearly what happened [as far as] you and I deciding we were going to take our space and what happened? An entanglement? A relationship.”
“Yes, a relationship, absolutely,” responded Jada, who said she was in a bad place at the time of the relationship.
Like Gwyneth Paltrow coined “uncoupling” when she split from husband Chris Martin, Jada and her “entanglement” were the talk of Twitter.
Jada called cheating an "entanglement" and "a journey to heal". Her lover August says they were deeply in love.— #MyView #MyThoughts...🇿🇲 (@Patlups) July 11, 2020
Jada got Will looking like he is on the set of Pursuit of happiness.
