Jada Pinkett Smith says she'll do some 'healing' on 'Red Table Talk,' after August Alsina said they had an affair

Jada Pinkett Smith said Thursday that she’ll be talking about “some healing that needs to happen” on her show, Red Table Talk, two days after musician August Alsina alleged he’d had a lengthy affair with the approval of her husband, Will Smith.

There’s some healing that needs to happen…so I’m bringing myself to The Red Table.

— Jada Pinkett Smith (@jadapsmith) July 2, 2020

Alsina said June 30 on The Breakfast Club radio show, “I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership … he gave me his blessing.” He added that they’d had a lengthy relationship. “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 OK with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody,” said Alsina, who’s appeared on Red Table Talk himself as a guest.

At the time, reps for the actress told Page Six that Alsina’s words were “absolutely not true.”

A rep for Pinkett Smith was unavailable for comment to Yahoo Entertainment.

Pinkett Smith has addressed her personal life before on the Facebook Watch show she hosts with her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and her daughter, Willow Smith, since May 2018. Her husband, the star of Bad Boys for Life and Bright, has even appeared as a guest as the women addressed issues that were often highly personal. The very first episode featured Will’s ex-wife, Sheree Elizabeth Zampino, talking with the superstar couple about how they all make having a blended family work. Last month, Will returned to sit down with just his wife for a candid conversation about their marriage and family.

Although Pinkett Smith’s announcement didn’t offer much detail, people were already very interested.

She don’t owe the public anything.

Vanilla Ice Set to Perform in Texas Even as COVID-19 Cases Surge

Vanilla Ice is back with a brand new mission… a fourth of July holiday weekend performance at a venue in Texas despite the fact Gov. Greg Abbott closed all bars in the state last week.The “Ice Ice Baby” rapper promoted the event earlier this week with a post on his Instagram page, writing, “I can’t wait to get back to this. The 90s were the best. We didn’t have coronavirus, or cell phones, or computers. we had 5.0’s, blockbuster, Beavis and Butthead, Wayne’s world, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. And Mortal Kombat is still better than fortnight but we got out of the house, We danced, we invented house parties in the 90s. The last of the great decades.”He defended his concert on Thursday morning, tweeting, “I take the coronavirus serious. But we can’t live in a bubble. I think at this point we all understand the severity of it. practice social distancing and wear a mask. This is an outside venue, Fourth of July on the lake with fireworks. Plenty of room for distancing.”The show is scheduled to take place on July 3 at Emerald Point Bar & Grill in Austin. The venue is technically considered a restaurant, according to the Austin Chronicle, because it derives 51% of sales from food, meaning it is exempt from the order.Also Read: Tom Hanks Says 'Shame on You' to People Who Refuse to Help Prevent the Spread of COVID-19The reason Abbott closed bars down, by the by, is that Texas has seen a massive spike in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks, a direct result of decisions Abbott has made since the pandemic began. Most notably, Abbott expressly forbade local authorities from enforcing measures to contain the disease, such as wearing masks. And that was before the state started reopening.As of this week, however, Houston in particular is at risk of having its ER facilities overwhelmed, but Austin is also getting hit hard. And on Wednesday Texas saw a record number of new reported cases.Look, we agree that “Ice Ice Baby” is a pretty fun song, but we would urge fans to stop, collaborate and listen to health authorities who rightly keep pointing out that COVID-19 is no joke and could potentially cause years of health problems even if it doesn’t kill your brain like a poisonous mushroom. Will it ever stop? Yo, we don’t know, but if people don’t take steps to protect themselves it could definitely keep getting worse.In other words, please be careful, Austinites, because the COVID don’t play.Read original story Vanilla Ice Set to Perform in Texas Even as COVID-19 Cases Surge At TheWrap
