JADA PINKETT admits that she had an affair with AUGUST ALSINA several years ago . . . but she's using the Ross - from - "Friends" excuse that she and WILL SMITH were ON A BREAK.
Jada and Will sat down for an episode of "Red Table Talk", where she said their marriage was in a bad place at the time . . and Will added, quote, "I was done with your ass . . . I was done with you. Marriages have that, though."
Technically, they were separated, and not sure they'd get back together. And that's when Jada had what she called an "entanglement" with August. She said, quote, "I just wanted to feel good. It had been so long since I felt good . . .
"I was in a lot of pain, and I was very broken. Now, in the process of that relationship, I definitely realized that you can't find happiness outside of yourself."
Obviously, this is something Jada and Will worked through and got past years ago. They're only talking about it now because August decided to bring it up.
But there's an interesting moment toward the end, where Will says, quote, "I'mma get you back . . ." And Jada replies, quote, "I think you've gotten me back . . . I think we're good on that." And Will says, quote, "That's probably true."
But they LAUGH about it, and then they say, quote, "We ride together, we die together. Bad marriage for life."
