The 12 – minute long Facebook video with over 20 million views and counting, has Jada explaining that the affair which happened about 4½ years ago was while she and husband, Will Smith, were separated.
Some fans and followers looked at it like Smith was cheated on, despite them both saying they were separated at the time.
In a radio interview with The Breakfast Club, Alsina had confirmed that he and Pinkett Smith dated during the marriage and said it was with the full-knowledge and “blessing” of Smith – leading to speculation the couple were in an open marriage.
Of course, that wasn’t the case.

The story of the affair spawned the ‘entanglement’ trend on social when Pinkett Smith described the relationship, saying; “I got into a different kind of entanglement with August.”
