Willow Smith responds to Jada Pinkett Smith’s ‘entanglement’ with August Alsina

Willow Smith told her mother Jada Pinkett how proud she was of her on the latest episode of the ‘Red Table Talk’

The word entanglement may be the fun word of 2020 but for the Smith family it held weight.

On the latest episode of Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith opened up to her daughter Willow Smith about what talking about her love affair meant for her.

Back in July, singer August Alsina revealed in an interview that he had been seeing Pinkett Smith, the wife of Will Smith, romantically. He claimed the Smiths were on a break and he asked Smith’s permission to date his spouse. When the news broke, the family and Alsina became the focus of memes and jokes across social media.

As theGrio reported, Pinkett-Smith finally brought herself to the “red table” and revealed to her audience she did engage in an “entanglement” with the singer.

“At the end of the day, I don’t like how all of this came to be. That doesn’t matter, it’s all love, honestly,” Pinkett Smith said. “That would be something I wouldn’t comment on at all. I feel like it’s a situation I consider private.”

Smith was the guest of the episode and followed up with, “But now Black Twitter has claimed it as they business.”

Pinkett Smith talked to Willow about the situation on the latest episode of the Red Table Talk which aired Monday. Despite their family being the butt of jokes for months, Willow told her mother she was happy about her being forthcoming.

“I want to put it on the table. I’m so proud of you. To be able to see you and Dad do that, for me, that was like, ‘OK, that’s the real deal,'” said Willow. “That’s real love.” 

Pinkett Smith’s mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones, who also sits as a regular host on the show, praised her daughter for having, “courage.” Willow expressed how impressed she was about how her parents handled the situation.

“Like, when you can be like, ‘I’m with you,” she said. “I’m going to stand by you and I’m going to hold your hand’… that’s really important.’”

After the explosion of press around the word “entanglement,” Alsina released a record with the same name featuring Rick Ross. The single peaked at number five on Billboard’s R&B Digital Songs Sales chart.
