The star made the admission in an unexpected episode of her online family chat show Red Table Talk, after Alsina claimed they had been involved in a relationship with Smith's permission.

"I wasn't sure if I was ever going to speak to you again", Smith said while explaining why the couple broke up.

Jada embarked on a whirlwind romance four to four and a half years ago with August when she was going through "difficult times" with Will. "It all started with him just needing some help, and me wanting to help his health and mental state". "We found all those different resources to help pull him through, and from there you and I were going through a very hard time", the Gotham actress said. One thing I want to clean up was the issue that was swelling in the press about you giving permission.

Jada explained the couple had agreed it was best for them to separate for "a period of time".

"From there, as time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August", said Jada.

She addressed it via HelloBeautiful at the 2015 Essence Fest, saying: 'Everybody always thinks I am dating August just because of the photo that we took together on my Instagram page, but no I'm not dating August Alsina, we are just friends'. Jada then said the two have since repaired their relationship. "It had been so long since I felt good", Jada added. "In that process, I realised that you can't find happiness outside of yourself". "This you?", the fan asked, and Keke confirmed that was indeed her.

"And as I came through and started to realise certain things about you and I, he made a decision to break all communication with me which was totally understandable".

"I just wanted to feel good". "I would definitely say we did everything that we could to get away from each other, only to realize that that wasn't possible". Smith and Pinkett are now back together after a split.

She also said she wanted to clear up Alsina having said her husband had given permission for the affair, though she added that she understood why the young singer may have believed that to be the case.

Jada was joined by Will as the two discussed August Alsina's revelation, their marriage, and more.

"So it is a little weird that all this stuff is coming out now cause this was years ago", she said.

The couple bumped fists as they jokingly recited their rendition of his "Bad Boys" movie motto: "We ride together, we die together". "Due to the transformation from their marriage to (a) life partnership that they have spoken on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing".
