Yee told the Jasmine Brand that she feels the R&B crooner told his story to heal his broken heart.“I think the main thing was- let’s not forget this was somebody who thought they were in a situation, and his feelings were hurt,” Yee said. “And you can’t negate that someone’s feelings were hurt, and they wanted to tell their story.”
“And I feel like there’s so much more he could’ve said, and the details are still kept private. The fact is, they were in an entanglement – or whatever you wanna call it – and it is what it is. Will knew about it,” Yee continued.
“It wasn’t a secret. He wasn’t messing up their marriage. August went through a lot…if that’s what he had to do to heal himself- to tell the world, ‘This is what happened to me,’ then it is what it is.”
As we previously reported, Jada Pinkett Smith responded to Angela Yee’s and August Alsina’s interview with a special “Red Table Talk” episode, in which the actress called their relationship an “entanglement,” after Will Smith pushed her to define it.
“‘Red Table Talk’ is known for telling the truth about things. And so, if this is part of your truth, then you should tell it. It was the best-rated show they ever had on Facebook Watch!” Angela Yee said of the episode.
“The biggest episode they ever had!…I think he was very respectful in the way that he told the story. He wasn’t like, ‘F— that hoe!’ He was just like, ‘I was in love. I had deep feelings.’ She probably didn’t have a choice…”
“It’s a lesson learned for everybody. And also, I just wanna say people have all types of situations when it comes to their relationships and their marriages. They have times where they take a break, and things happen…none of this should be a surprise,” Yee concluded.
“For some reason, it’s such a big story. I didn’t think it was gonna be as crazy as it was…I think everybody knew they were in this relationship. It was not a surprise.”
