August Alsina is speaking out following Jada Pinkett Smith's confirmation that she and the singer were romantically involved during her separation from Will Smith.

The 27-year-old "No Love" singer took social media on Friday (July 10) shortly after Pinkett Smith detailed their past relationship during her Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk.

"Imagine not knowing how to mind the business that pay you," Alsina tweeted. "I catch all the subliminals. (Not just about today) & you can call me whatever you like, Mess is constantly inserting yourself in topics you have nun to do w/. Go play w/ ya MAMMY! Not me!"

He added, "If you have something to say, say it w/ ya CHEST kids. It’s always very perplexing cause I real deal be showing people genuine love. Whole time that envy eating ya lil heart. Anyway, NEXT!!"

In the latest episode of Red Table Talk, Pinkett Smith sat down with her movie star husband for a candid conversation surrounding the recent headlines about her affair with Alsina. The 48-year-old actress admitted that her relationship with the singer started about four-and-a-half years ago while she and Smith were separated.

"I was in a lot of pain and I was very broken," she said. "Now in the process of that relationship I definitely realized that you can't find happiness outside of yourself."

Pinkett Smith said her relationship with Alsina allowed her to confront her own "emotional immaturity" and insecurity, and do some "deep healing." She added that her romance with Alsina ended after the singer stopped all communication with her. "Aug and I haven't talked in so long," the actress noted.
