Jada Smith denies August Alsina claims that Will Smith gave his “Blessing” for their relationship



While August Alsina claims he was in a years-long relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith while she was married to Will Smith, the actress has issued a denial.

After Alsina spoke publicly about allegedly being romantically involved with the actress, including the claim that her longtime husband gave Alsina his “blessing,” Jada’s reps have called the claims “absolutely not true,” He reached out for comment. A rep for Will did not respond.

The headline-making allegations surfaced this week in an interview between Alsina and Angela Yee, published on YouTube. During the sit-down, the topic of the 27-year-old singer’s “Nunya” track came up along with the rumors that he had dated Smith.

“Here’s what I’ll say,” Alsina began in response. “People can have whatever ideas that they like, but what I’m not ok with is my character being in question when certain things are questions that I know its not me or that I know I haven’t done.” 

He continued, “Contrary to what some people believe, I’m not a troublemaker. I don’t like drama. The drama actually makes me nauseous…I also don’t think that it’s ever-important for people to know what I do, who I sleep with, who I date.”

However, the performer clarified, “In this instance, it’s very different because as I said, there are so many people that are side-eyeing me, looking at my questions about it. I’ve lost money, friendships, relationships behind it and I think it’s because people don’t necessarily know the truth, but I’ve never done anything wrong. I love those people.”

Seemingly referring to Jada and Will, he added, “I don’t have a bad thing to say about them. They are beautiful people.”

The singer said he didn’t have a choice but to express his truth after his life and wellness were being affected.

“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership that they’ve spoken on several times and it not involving romanticism,” he alleged.

“He gave me his blessing and I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life and I truly and really, really deeply loved and have a ton of love for her. 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.”

If you know who killed my brother, please come forward, I beg you – BBN’s Khafi cries out




BBNaija star Khafi Kareem has been left devastated after her younger brother Alexander Kareem was killed in a London shooting on Monday, June 8.

The Sun UK reported that Alexander, 20, was shot close to his family house in Shepherd’s Bush, West London. He was said to have been walking back home from a convenience store when he was shot by a yet-to-be-identified person in the early hours of Monday.

According to the post-mortem Alexander died from gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen.

UK Police are appealing for information about a white Range Rover driven by his killers which was found burned out three miles away from the scene of the shooting. Det Chief Inspector Wayne Jolley said:

“We are determined to bring those responsible for this unnecessary and terrifying violence to justice. We continue to appeal for witnesses who may have seen or heard what happened to come forward. The white Range Rover seen in the area and later found burned out is also a key part of the investigation.”

When Alexander turned 20 in March, Khafi wrote on her Instagram page:
