The couple were both going through a very tough time in their marriage and the pair separated. During that time, Jada says she got into an "entanglement" or "relationship" with August Alsina.</p><blockquote>"In the process of that relationship, I definitely realized that you can't find happiness outside of yourself". </blockquote>
A very open and honest conversation<p>August Alsina spoke to the Breakfast Club cohost Angela Yee in an <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q91Z1gW_iHw" target="_blank">interview</a> and made claims that he and Jada had an affair. He also said that Will Smith gave his permission. On <em>Red Table Talk</em>, Jada said:</p><blockquote>"I could actually see how he (August) could perceive it as permission because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he is not a homewrecker."</blockquote><p>The couple ended the conversation on a light note with a joke from the <em>Bad Boys</em> movie starring Will Smith, saying: "We ride together. We die together. Bad marriage for life." </p>
