Embattled Hollywood actor Will Smith will face another humiliation after it emerged that his wife’s lover has just signed a “big-money book deal” to publish a tell-all about his affair with Jada Pinkett Smith.
Jada reportedly had a years-long affair with R&B singer August Alsina.
They went public with the affair and Jada even dragged Will onto her television show to talk about the fact that she cheated on him.
Sources close to August said: “August is getting ready to sign a big-money book deal which will detail his romantic liaisons with Jada.
“He has always maintained that Will gave him permission to sleep with Jada, something they have publicly denied.
“There are several publishers bidding for the books and August is lining up the best deal.
“He knows there are a lot of people fascinated by his story and is happy to tell it,” the source said.
Pinkett Smith has reportedly broken her silence on Will Smith’s recent Academy Awards shenanigans.
US Weekly talked to sources close to Jada who said that she says that her husband “didn’t need” to slap comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars.
Pinkett Smith’s people spoke out to say she is not “angry with” Smith for slapping Rock but she “wishes he didn’t” do what he did.
“It was in the heat of the moment and it was him overreacting,” the sources told the outlet.
“He knows that she knows that.
“They’re in agreement that he overreacted.”
The source continued: “She’s not one of these women that needs protecting.
“He didn’t need to do what he did, she didn’t need protecting.
“She’s not a wallflower. She’s a strong woman, an opinionated woman and she can fight her own battles.
“But she will stand by him,” the source said.
In an earlier interview Will commented on Jada sleeping around on him.
“Jada never believed in conventional marriage,” he said.
“Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship.
“So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up.
“There were significant endless discussions about, what is relational perfection?
“What is the perfect way to interact as a couple?
“And for the large part of our relationship, monogamy was what we chose, not thinking of monogamy as the only relational perfection.
“We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way.
“And marriage for us can’t be a prison.
“And I don’t suggest our road for anybody.
“I don’t suggest this road for anybody.
“But the experiences that the freedoms that we’ve given one another and the unconditional support, to me, is the highest definition of love.”
Over the years, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been transparent about their evolving marriage and the bumps in the road. https://t.co/SMGW8S2Hap
