Jada Brings Herself To The Confession Table

The 51-year-old actress brought herself and Will Smith on The Red Table Talk. In the episode, she admitted to having an affair with the No Love singer, August Alsina. The shocking confessional sent shivers down so many spines, as the only things we've heard of their unconventional marriage were just rumors, but this put a whole new perspective into their marital life.

It All Started With A Friendship

The mom of two revealed she developed a friendship with the singer following his illness. At that time, the family knew him as Jaden Smith's friend, who also needed help with his sickness, and the Smiths were there to offer him support.

Setting Things Straight

The confessional comes after Jada and Will denied August's claims that Will gave August his blessing to be with Jada.

Jada also refuted August's claims that Will gave her permission to step out of their marriage.

According to Jada, "The only person that can give permission in that circumstance is myself. 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."

A Light Bulb Went Off

It took that relationship for a broken Jada to realize that true happiness lies within.

"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."
