HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - OCTOBER 06: (EDITORS NOTE: Retransmission with alternate crop.) Will Smith attends the Premiere of Gemini Man at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA on October 6, 2019.

On Wednesday morning (July 1), Jada Pinkett Smith was trending on Twitter following a shocking interview that August Alsina did where he claimed that he and Jada had a relationship that was Will Smith-approved, as we previously reported.

Fans of Jada are apparently questioning the actress and talk show host’s integrity because she previously spoke on helping Alsina work through his issues with addiction. Alsina has also been vocal about his issues with his mother as well as previously being molested.

It seems as if some fans feel Jada was wrong for allegedly engaging in a relationship with a man who is decades younger than her and who was vulnerable due to his struggle with addiction. Some fans feel that Jada might have preyed on the younger singer while he was in dark space.

Some fans also feel as if perhaps Alsina thought that he was in a relationship with Jada when he really wasn’t, and they blame the fact that Jada assisted him during his period of addiction for that.

Below, check out what some of Jada and Alsina’s fans have to say.
