Will Smith raged at 50 Cent in a series of private messages about his wife Jada's relationship with August Alsina.

The Hollywood actor, 51, and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, 48, were seen having a tense conversation about their marriage in a dramatic showdown on Red Table Talk last night.

The episode showed Jada confirming she'd had a relationship with singer August Alsina, 27, during a difficult point in their marriage.

After the show aired, 50 Cent reached out to the actor to give his support, but it ended in a furious exchange with Will.

50 Cent then pressed him on Jada's comments about August, writing: "But why did she tell you that s**t on a show for everyone to see?"

Will tried to explain, writing: "We broke up so she did her and I did me."

However, the hip-hop star didn't let it go, adding: "Then she said only SHE can give permission for somebody to blow her back out," adding a confused emoji.

Will then got angry with rapper, ending the conversation by writing: "F**k you 50," leaving the star even more baffled.

50 Cent replied: "Wait, what I do?"

"He gave me his blessing."
