August Alsina returned to Twitter to get some things off his chest as regards the ongoing drama between him, Will, and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
August Alsina set social media on fire after he disclosed that he and Jada Pinkett-Smith used to be romantically “entangled.”

Not only did the drama birth new memes and a conversation around open marriages, but it also got stars like Keke Palmer speaking up about their connections with the rapper.
On the same day that Will and Jada’s talk was causing an internet sensation, 50 Cent shared a screenshot of a private conversation he had with Will earlier.
According to CNN, the “Kissin’ on My Tattoos” hitmaker took to Twitter to drop a few words after Keke denied having a romantic affiliation with him. August's first tweet ended with, "Go play w/ ya MAMMY! Not me!” The rapper quickly followed that tweet up with another that he used to ask detractors to say whatever they had to say.
Just two days before August’s Twitter rants, CNN reported that Will and Jada appeared on the July 10 episode of the latter’s “Red Table Talk” so they could address what happened between Jada and August.
During the exchange, the couple revealed that they were going through some challenges and were separated when Jada and the rapper became an item.
In fact, things were so bad between the couple that they believed that their relationship would never recover from the problems they were facing.
When Will asked his wife to paint a clearer picture of her involvement with the 27-year-old rapper, she said that she “got into an entanglement with August.” That particular choice of words caused a raucous that led the “Red Table Talk” episode to break Facebook records quickly.
Variety pointed out that within the first 24-period that the clip got posted, it was watched over 15 million times. The 12-minute video, which was titled “Jada Brings Herself to the Table,” beat a previous record that was set by a 2019 “Red Table Talk” episode.
Us Magazine noted that the discussion between the duo confirmed that Will and Jada were indeed broken up during her fling with August.
The 45-year-old rapper claimed that he was just trying to ensure that his actor friend was doing okay following his honest “Red Table Talk” appearance.
