August Alsina has spoken out for the first time since alleging he had an affair with Jada Pinkett Smith.

The 27-year-old appeared on The Breakfast Club for an interview with Angela Yee, where he also claimed that Will Smith ‘gave him his blessing’ for the relationship.

The Girls Trip actress’ rep told Page Six that this is ‘absolutely not true’ – and she will be addressing his words on an upcoming instalment of Red Table Talk.

Taking to Instagram, August has now shared a lengthy statement on Instagram, addressing the rollercoaster few days.

‘God said, We may grow weary and tired fighting in the fire, but we shall NOT be burned! The journey to freedom is a deeply complex, tricky, and turbulent road to tow; yet very necessary,’ he began.

‘Oppression comes in so many forms these days, beginning w/ physical slavery and bondage to the white man, then passed down generational programming that manifest into mental enslavement. 

‘Slaves to an idea, slaves to an image, slaves to a code of conduct, slaves to a picture you’ve created in your mind.. Even if it contains many falsities.. & anything that differentiates from your “idea” & “image” feels like an attack. 

‘& I get it; not only do I get it but I’m also sorry you feel that way, BUT, The only attack here is against the invisible walls of silent societal construct and “code” we place upon each other & upon ourselves hidden behind the desires of others approval & acceptance; another form of slavery & bondage that blocks one’s truest self from showing & spirit flow.’

‘Be blocked and stuck for what? Live silent, pressed down crippled in fear for who? Adversary is but a gift given to you to flourish,’ he continued. ‘We are surround by so much disharmony in this external world, so it is my forever job to do whatever’s necessary to reach the gift of harmony within myself. 

‘Truth & Transparency makes us uncomfortable, yes, but I can’t apologise for that. A tower of truth can never fall, only a tower of lies can do that. My truth is MY truth, & its mine to own. There is no right or wrong here, it simply just IS.

‘& I make room and have acceptance for your thoughts and opinions, regardless if I agree or not, you have that freedom to feel WHATEVER it is u feel because when you’re at TRUE peace, all of the noise and chatter becomes that of a whisper.

‘My heart has no malice or hate toward anyone on this planet. I just simply want the chains off & I’m willing to DIE getting there. The gift of freedom is yours to have, God promises us that, but only if you’re willing [sic].’

‘& God is not a man that HE should lie.. & I’m His SON, so neither would I,’ he concluded.

‘W/ that being said i should also say that, no one was side swiped by any conversation, everyone got courtesy calls time in advance. Wishing Everyone Big Love!’

August was first introduced to Jada five years ago, by her son, Jaden – and grew close to the whole Smith family.

Speaking on The Breakfast Club this week, the No Love singer claimed that he ‘totally gave himself’ to an affair with the mum-of-two, and that Will was well aware.

‘I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation. Due to the transformation from their marriage to their life partnership that they spoken on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing,’ he alleged. 

‘I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life. 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.

He added: ‘I really loved the person that I experienced that [with] and know what [that feels] like – if some people never get that in this lifetime.’
