Confirming the relationship that she labeled as an “entanglement” Jada Pinkett Smith said that Alsina and her got together when she and her husband separated. 

Having now reconciled their marriage and gotten back together, the Smith’s said that moving into the new chapter of their life was hard for Alsina to accept. 

"As I came through and started to realize certain things about you and I, he decided to break all communication with me, which was totally understandable," Pinkett Smith said. "And I let that be and hadn’t talked to him since."

Clearing up why the rumors that Alsina had received permission for the affair from Smith's blessing, Jada Pinkett Smith had to say this: "What August was probably trying to communicate, because I could actually see how he would perceive it as permission because we were separated amicably. I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s not a homewrecker, which he’s not."
