Jada Pinkett Smith has confirmed being in a relationship with rapper August Alsina. 

Pinkett said that she got close to the rapper after experiencing hard times during her marriage to Will Smith.

She said this on her show 'The Red Table Talk''.

"We were over, from there, as time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August. I was in a lot of pain and I was very broken."

The rapper had previously said that his relationship with Pinkett had been approved by Will Smith, spreading open marriage rumors.

"The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself, I could actually see how he would perceive it as permission because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he's also not a home-wrecker. Which he's not."

They ended their conversation by borrowing some words from the movies "Bad Boys".

"We ride together, we die together. Bad marriage for life,"
