Jada Pinkett-Smith Admits She Was “Entangled” With August Alsina

mm

Published

on

I took some time before writing this to really process my thoughts on this matter. August Alsina, in my opinion, is a victim. It’s my job as someone with a platform to not make a joke of his situation. Jada didn’t seem give him that much, but I’ll try.

In this episode, Will is in the seat as a Jada/Willow hybrid, sprinkling mhmms about the room in the vain of his daughter. They opened the episode with irony. Jada had a lack of self-awareness. They claimed that this situation was nobody else’s business. It takes a lot of gall to be Jada Pinkett-Smith, a woman who has re-entered public conversation by putting a table in her house and having personal conversations about her own family and then tell people to stay out of her business. That’s literally not her brand.

We move on to her half-admitting that there was a relationship, calling it an “entanglement”. Simultaneously, they both admit that August was vulnerable (“sick”) when they met him. But, here’s the point where they begin to gaslight. The majority of the video is centered around the fact that, about 4 ½ years ago, they had “broken up.” They pose this situation as a kind of affair. Rather than addressing how inappropriate this situation was, they talk ad nauseum about their relationship and the fact that their love is strong again. I cried.

Jada Brings Herself to the Table

Jada and Will address the recent headlines and share their journey of finding peace through pain.

I cried because I’ve been August, manipulated by an older man, used in a time of need. I cried because these people have found a way to spin this situation and escape accountability. In my opinion, Will and Jada have been allowed to coddle oppressors for a few years now, and they’ve done it again, here. But, hey, Bad Marriage For Life, right?

Jada Speaks on August Alsina Drama in Latest Red Table Talk

Published

on

In her first “Red Table Talk” since the infamous August Alsina-Jada Pinkett-Smith drama began, Jada admitted that she did in fact have a relationship with singer August Alsina. 

In response to Alsina’s claim that he was involved in a romantic years-long relationship with the actress, Jada said their relationship began “4 and a half years ago” at a time when both her and August were going through an immense amount of change in their lives. 

“You and I were going through a very difficult time,” Jada said, speaking to her husband Will Smith. “You kicked me to the curb.. We basically broke up.” Will agreed that he was “done with her ass” while commenting that “marriages go through that.” 

When her husband asked her why she chose the relationship with Alsina, she replied “I just wanted to feel good. It had been so long since I felt good, and it was really a joy to help heal somebody.” Since news of the relationship broke, much of the criticism Pinkett-Smith has faced revolved around her possibly wanting to heal August as he had recently lost his sister and taken on custody of her children. In an interesting comparison, she likened her need to help broken people – such as August, at the time – to an addiction.

She argued that she “was really able to do some really deep healing” before he suddenly broke communication and hadn’t had any contact with her since then. According to both Jada and Will Alsina cut the Smiths off “years ago” and that’s why Alsina even mentioning all this now was so “strange.”. 

The actress then went on to thank her husband for being such a good companion that both of them “could make mistakes without fear of losing [their] family.” They both expressed gratitude in each other for sticking around especially when, according to Will, Jada messed up so badly he wasn’t sure he was even going to speak to her again. 

The two shared laughs then reaffirmed their marriage some more by talking about how whatever Jada did that had Will so pissed off wasn’t enough to scare him away. 

In all, this latest installment of “Red Table Talk” was interesting to say the least. Check it out below.

Company Connected to Tidal Apparently Took Millions in PPP Loans

Jay-Z’s media empire seems to be in distress. According to Variety, Malibu Entertainment took $2.1 million in PPP loans after the music and film industries were crippled by the coronavirus. Of interest is that Malibu Entertainment is not only a Jay-Z venture, but also shares physical and, according to Variety‘s sources, some financial resources with Tidal

“[I]n 2017 Malibu submitted for H1B visas for graphic designers providing as a contact for Joseph Borrino, CFO of Roc Nation at the time, who used a Tidal.com email address; and several Tidal employees tell Variety that their paychecks come from Malibu Entertainment.”

Jem Aswad, Variety

Tidal and Roc Nation have already had to make some salary cuts, furloughs, and lay-offs during the pandemic. I’m almost positive that Mr. Carter himself has not cut his own salary in all of this, but maybe I’m wrong. The bottom line is this: Tidal has been struggling for a while. The concern is that he’s using pandemic money as a last ditch effort to save a service that probably only sees subscriber uptick when his wife decides she’ll make another one of her projects a “Tidal Exclusive”. 

Jay-Z Kanye

Jay-Z isn’t the only celebrity businessman to take advantage of the CARES Act money. Kanye West also stood in the welfare line to get Yeezy their very own EBT card as well. I’ll reiterate my thoughts from my Kanye Op Ed: These men are not playing chess, they aren’t even on the board. Jay-Z partnered with Live Nation to make Roc Nation. He bought Tidal, prebuilt. Yeezys are just rock-shaped Nikes. These men are not, in my opinion, good at this. And I think it’s time we start recognizing that. They are propped up by our dollars, and their more-marketable wives, and not giving nearly enough back.
