Jada Pinkett Smith’s infidelity

There had been rumors about Jada and Alsina for a while but nothing was conformed until the singer did an interview with Angela Yee of The Breakfast Club.

“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love and have a ton of love for her,” he said of his relationship with Jada. “I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it — so much so to the point that I can die right now and be OK with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.”

He even claimed to have gotten Will’s permission for the relationship.

“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership … he gave me his blessing,” he said.

Jada later admitted to the relationship on Red Table Talk. She said that it started out with her just wanting to help Alsina but developed into something more.

“I had to learn to break [my codependency] in this cycle, the idea of needing to fix and being drawn to people that need help…whether it’s your health, or whether it’s your addictions – there’s something about that childhood trauma that feels as though it can be fixed through fixing people versus fixing me,” she told Will on the show.

Will and Jada have a relationship counselor

Will and Jada were able to speak openly and honestly on Red Table Talk about Jada’s tryst with Alsina. Many have commended the couple for being so communicative and expressive with one another. In this week’s episode, Jada revealed that she and Will have a relationship counselor.

Jada, Willow Smith, and Jada’s mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris sat down with Jada’s therapist, Michaela Boehm and discussed their own heartbreaks throughout their lives.

“But what I am still trying to learn is allowing for that tenderness, versus [going into fight mode],” Jada said.

“I think that has a lot to do with the fear of being hurt. You don’t want to feel rejected, you don’t want to feel unloved. Being programmed, and believing, ‘Girl, don’t let those tears come, because you will fall apart and you might not be able to put yourself back together again,'” she continued.

Willow also admitted that she had some romantic trials this past year that Boehm helped her get through.

“I have had some personal decisions I needed to make this year that were really hard,” Willow said. “I just had to just learn how to set some boundaries in my romantic relationship/ships, and I am so grateful that my partner was just open to what I had to say. “
