Jada Pinkett Smith is not leaving Will Smith for August Alsina, despite a speculative report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this ridiculous claim.
“R&B Singer AUGUST ALSINA… Just Told The WORLD… That He ‘LOVES’ With Will Smith’s Wife JADA ‘WITH HIS ENTIRE EXISTENCE’… Should She Leave WILL FOR HIM???” asks MediaTakeOut, which asserts, “Jada and Will Smith’s marriage may be in trouble. For months there have been rumors of a romance between Will’s wife Jada and R&B singer August Alsina.”
The site goes on to write, “Well last night August made things even MORE COMPLICATED. He told the world that he ‘loves Jada with his entire existence.’ That’s some pretty DEEP love. Should she LEAVE Will for young August???” Of course, aside from mentioning that Alsina is “close to the Smith family,” this article unsurprisingly lacks context.
Alsina’s quote about Smith comes from an Instagram post in which he also calls her his “best friend.” That’s because they’ve had a tight platonic relationship for years now to the point where the rapper is even close to Smith’s mom. And with a poor relationship with his own mother, Smith and her mom have stepped up to be strong maternal figures for him, aiding the performer through his well-known health woes.
That background information, which MediaFakeOut didn’t bother to include in its sensational post, makes it clear that there’s nothing romantic going on between the pair. The webloid jumped to scandalous conclusions, but if the outlet bothered to look closely at Alsina’s Instagram, it would have seen he also posted a loving tribute to Queen Latifah. And he’s not embarking on a “romance” with her, either.
As for the contention that the Smiths’ marriage may be in “trouble,” one contact Gossip Cop spoke with actually laughed aloud when we inquired about their status. “They just spent a week sailing in a yacht around Greece with their family and friends,” a source tells Gossip Cop exclusively. Suffice it to say, Smith has no intention of leaving her husband for Alsina or anyone else.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
