US singer, August Alsina who had an affair with Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith, is set to sign a six-figure book deal with details of his life, including his well-publicized ‘entanglement’ with Jada.
“August is getting ready to sign a big-money book deal which will detail his romantic liaisons with Jada. He has always maintained that Will gave him permission to sleep with Jada, something they have publicly denied.
August will go into detail about his time with Jada and will also speak about how he spent time living in homes owned by Will when he was away filming,” the Sun reported.
Jada in 2020, August revealed that he had a relationship with Jada while still married to Will Smith. He also claimed that he had Smith’s blessing on their brief relationship.
Will later confirmed he had briefly split with his wife at the time. Responding to August’s claims during an emotional episode of Red Table Talk, “We were over,” Jada said. “As time passed, I became entangled in a different kind of relationship with August.
“One of the things I want to clear up that was kind of swirling in the press was you giving permission, which the only person who can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself” added Pinkett-Smith.
Meanwhile, according to reports, August’s memoirs are the subject of a ‘bidding war,’ with the musician expected to sign a six-figure deal.
