Singer August Alsina says he agrees with Jada Pinkett Smith that their affair was a entanglement.

'I don't know why that word is such an issue. I would agree [with Jada]. If you look up the definition of 'entanglement,' it is a complex and difficult relationship. It was exactly that,' he told Vulture in an interview.

“I definitely have to agree with it being an entanglement. It definitely was something complicated, a complicated dynamic.'

But he maintained that Will Smith gave his blessing. 'I can't speak for anyone else. What I said in my interview, how I said it, when I said it, is exactly what I said and exactly what I meant.

'That's all I can really say about that. All I have is my truth, and all I have is my truth to stand on it. I don't have any reason to lie about anything."

He said he spoke out because the rumours were starting to affect both his professional and personal life.

"This became very complex for me because we're all public figures, and there was a lot of chatter around my name and her name," Alsina said. "I'm pretty expressive. And when I love something or love someone, I express that. Over time, I was expressing my love externally and outwardly, and when you are in a situation, and you super in love, it’s like, f— it. I don't care what anybody thinks. This is just how I feel."

"But once I got to step out of it and step outside of it, there would be people bringing how I looked to my attention," he continued. "People looked at me as this problematic guy who was super reckless, like I'm pushing up on someone's wife. I didn't really like that. I didn't like the sound of that, especially when it wasn't the truth."
