Will Smith reportedly looked broken with some claiming he cried on Instagram following his wife Jada Pinkett’s confirmation about her “entanglement” with August Alsina.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett denied August Alsina’s claim that he had a relationship with Jada with Smith’s blessing. However, the two just confirmed they split, and Jada had some sort of “entanglement” with August.
Will Smith looked like a broken man
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith got candid about their personal lives on Red Table Talk. During the conversation, the couple both confirmed that they split. Meanwhile, Jada confirmed her relationship with August.
According to Mirror, footage of the session is making waves online. Many netizens said Smith looked so sad and broken.
In fact, several said they had not seen him looked so sad since he starred in Pursuit of Happyness in 2006. The film was a movie about a salesman struggling to survive homelessness with his son.
“No matter how much Will Smith tries to keep it together. The fact remains Jada has broken this brother,” one commented.
“He has never looked like this since the movie Pursuit of Happiness [sic] and we all know what that facial expression means..” another added.
“For someone that’s a good actor, Will Smith tried so hard to hide [the] pain he was feeling hearing Jada give her #entanglement speech,” a different online user opined.
Smith cried on Instagram
Meanwhile, some claimed that the I Am Legend star was crying on Instagram. Media Take Out alleged that Smith uploaded a video on the social media platform looking like he just finished crying.
Gossip Cop debunked the claim. According to the outlet, there is no proof if Smith was crying before the video. Also, the clip was about Smith talking about the sort of leaders he believed were fit to be elected for office.
The gossip-debunking site added that the outlet was exploiting Smith because he and his family have been making headlines due to August Alsina’s confession about his affair with Jada.
When Jada and Will appeared on Red Table Talk, Smith explained that they purposely never said anything. That was their initial plan, but they decided to break their silence.
“We specifically never said anything. Coming to the table, we just felt like it got to the point where you got to say something,” Smith said.
August and Jada had an affair
August Alsina claimed in a previous interview that he had an affair with Jada Pinkett with Will Smith’s blessing.
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation. Due to the transformation from their marriage to [a] life partnership that they spoken on several times, and not involving romanticism, he gave me his blessing,” August said.
Initially, the Smiths denied it. But, Jada and her husband eventually admitted that they had a brief split. Jada also acknowledged her relationship with August calling it an “entanglement.”
