The 30-year-old musician credited a man standing nearby for “a love that feels limitless.” “And then what do you know? Love showed up, but in a new way,” he said.
Alsina added that he wants to honor the person he loves and who loves him back and teaches him about love and healing.
He further gave a powerful message about sharing his love in front of the world since it “defies all the constructs that one would say love is supposed to be or look like.”

August Alsina Dating History: Who Has He Dated In The Past?
The recent announcement of August Alsina came to light two years after his romance with Actress Jada Pinkett Smith, 51. The infamous “entanglement” with Will Smith’s wife caused a major media uproar.
In June 2020, Alsina released his third studio album, The Product III: State of Emergency, a five-part documentary series. It detailed his life experiences, family, and the heavily publicized “entanglement” with the Actress.
Alsina claimed that Jada’s son, Jaden, introduced him to Jada in 2015 and that he fell in love with her. The two became very close, vacationed in Hawaii, and attended the 2017 BET Awards together.
He also stated that Will Smith, who has been married to Jada since 1997, gave him his blessings. “I devoted myself to it; I gave my full self to it,” Alsina said in an interview with Breakfast Club host Angela Yee.
Although she initially denied the claims, Jada admitted in July 2020 that she got into a relationship with Alsina — but that she did not perceive it as a “transgression” since she and Will were on a break.
According to Who’s Dated Who, Alsina has been in relationships with Jada Pinkett Smith (2017 to 2019), Miracle Watts (2015 to 2016), Kayla Phillips (2014), Mandy Williams (2013 to 2015), and Analicia Chaves.
His relationship with Jada became the most publicized one given their vast age gap and Jada’s well-known marriage with King Richard star Will Smith.
Will and Jada have two children together: 24-year-old Jaden Christopher Syre Smith and 22-year-old Willow Camille Reign Smith. Jada also has a stepson, Willard Carroll “Trey” Smith III, from Will’s earlier marriage.
