Jada Pinkett Smith‘s ex August Alsina has seemingly come out as gay.

Will Smith’s wife, 51, revealed that she had been involved in an affair with the ‘Kissin’ On My Tattoos’ singer, 30, in 2020.

She famously referred to the relationship as an ‘entanglement’ – opening up to her husband on her talk show, Red Table Talk.

The ‘No Love’ hitmaker has only publicly dated women since he rose to prominence with his debut mixtape, ‘The Product’, in 2012.

Alsina also had an on-and-off relationship with Mandy Williams between 2013 and 2015.

He also dated model Kayla Phillips in 2014 before moving on with influencer Miracle Watts between 2015 and 2016.

Now, he has discussed his latest relationship on VH1’s rebooted series, The Surreal Life.

A man was seen sitting next to Alsina, and as the two shared a hug, the singer said: “I love you.”

At the start of the clip, Alsina was seen describing his want for ‘a love that feels limitless’.

The scene then shifts to show him sitting in a confessional as he tells the camera: “And then what do you know? Love showed up, but in a new way.”

He added: “I want to share that and really honour the person that I love and that loves me back and teaching me so much about love and healing.

“I want to do that in front of the world because it defies all the constructs that one would say love is supported to be or love should look like.”

However, Alsina did not specifically clarify his sexuality or divulge whether or not his new relationship was an intimate or romantic one.

The clip finished with a photo of Alsina looking happy with a caption that said he was ‘shedding his old skin, in order to begin again’.

The news has shocked fans, though they seem supportive of Alsina being so open about his sexuality.

One person wrote on Twitter: “August Alsina coming out was not on my 2022 bingo card! But, I’m proud!”

Another said: “Good for August Alsina.

“A beautiful moment seeing someone win that battle within themselves and find love and healing as he described. 

“Love won here. Self-love.”

A third chimed in, penning: “August Alsina coming out was the classiest s*** I’ve seen.

“You’re doing great sweetie.”

Some, however, have questioned whether Alsina has actually ‘come out’.

One person said: “So y’all realize August Alsina didn’t actually say he was gay or that dude was his boyfriend right? 

“It’s giving intentional ambiguity for social discourse and higher viewership next week.”

A second wrote: “Did he say this was his boyfriend or are y’all making assumptions? 

“Whether August Alsina is gay or not, I want y’all to understand that men can show one another how to love and be loved in a healthy way without being gay. 

“The same way women do for one another.”

Alsina was only 23 years old when he met Pinkett Smith, and he is reportedly set to write a tell-all book that will go into detail about their s** life.

A source told The Sun: “August is getting ready to sign a big money book deal which will detail his romantic liaisons with Jada.

“He has always maintained that Will gave him permission to sleep with Jada, something they have publicly denied.”

The source added that Alsina will talk about how he spent time living in homes owned by Will Smith while he was away filming.

Apparently, there are a number of publishers bidding for the book and Alsina is currently lining up the best deal.
