Jada Pinkett Smith says she'll discuss August Alsina 'affair' on her show

 Singer August, 27, claims he and Jada had a years-long affair with the blessing of her husband Will Smith, 51.

Jada Pinkett Smith has announced she'll discuss August Alsina's affair claims on Red Table Talk. The actress, 48, broke her silence to tell the world she'll deal with the bombshell allegations on her Facebook Watch show.

Singer August, 27, claims he and Jada had a years-long affair with the blessing of her husband Will Smith, 51.

She wrote on Twitter: "There’s some healing that needs to happen…so I’m bringing myself to The Red Table."

She hasn't given a time. But fans can hardly wait to see what she has to say.

One commented: "We’re watching!"

While another asked: "You bringing August or what?”

August, 27, sensationally claimed that he had been seeing actress Jada, 48, for years after being introduced to the famous family by their son Jaden, 21. The singer said that Will, who also shares daughter Willow, 19, with his wife, gave his blessing to the extra-marital relationship.

Both Will and Jada have denied the claims.

August made the radical claims during a YouTube interview with Angela Yee.

He said: "I actually sat down with Will [Smith] and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership … he gave me his blessing."

Speaking about his alleged affair with Jada, he said: "I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love 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 okay with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody."

He added: "And I really loved a person, I experienced that and I know what that feels like — and some people never get that in this lifetime.

"I know that I am completely blessed and this conversation is difficult because it is so much, that it would be hard for people to understand but — once it starts to affect me and my livelihood — I have to speak up about my truth."

But Jada and Will have denied he's telling the truth.

The couple, who married in 1997, have released statements through their representatives.

Will's people told The Sun that the accusations are "wrong".

And Jada's representatives told Page Six that it's "absolutely not true".

Jada's revelation that she'll discuss the claims on Red Table Talk comes after Will broke cover to head out for a round of golf, appearing happy as he put the rumours behind him.
