In April 2013, Jada reportedly said in an interview that she had always said that Will can do whatever he wants because he is his own man. This made everyone believe that Will Smith and Jada were in an open relationship. But she immediately denied such claims and said that she was not referring to an open marriage with her comments.

But all hell broke loose in June 2020 when rapper and singer August Alsina said that he and Jada had been involved in an affair in 2016 when he was 23 and Jada was 44. He was also a friend of Will’s son Jaden. To make things worse, he also claimed that they had Will’s permission for the affair. A spokesperson of Jada denied Alsina’s claims. 

Then in July, Jada hosted her husband Will Smith in the Red Table Talk, where she confirmed her affair with Alsina when they were separated. But she maintained that didn’t happen with Will’s permission. Then in 2021, Will Smith took a U-turn and stated that Jada didn’t believe in a conventional marriage. And admitted that he and Jada have had sexual relationships outside their marriage.
