Lil Wayne returned this week with another episode of his Young Money Radio show on Apple Music, this time stirring up the pot with special guest August Alsina, who discussed his infamous "entanglement" with Jada Pinkett Smith.

Alsina has been in the headlines ever since he claimed that he had been in a relationship with Jada while she was married, even alleging that her husband, Will Smith gave him his blessing. While there has been a back and forth about the exact details of their romantic relationship, the R&B singer told Lil Wayne this weekend that he still loves and misses Jada.

"When you experience a certain type of experience on this planet... I will always have love for her as a person," he told Wayne. "The experience really did help to transform me." He continued, clarifying, "Nobody is wrong here, nobody is a bad person. She didn't prey on me."

In the interview, Alsina also doubled down on his claims that Will Smith knew about their relationship and gave his blessing. "As two men, we had a conversation and that’s what it was," he said. "Everything I spoke on in my initial interview, is my truth. Because of the narrative that was painted, [people think] I'm speaking on this because I'm salty they ended up getting back together."

Alsina also addressed the allegations that he was using the Smiths for publicity and only chose to share his story during the promotional run for his album and documentary. "People may say, or it's looking like, I'm doing something for attention —absolutely, absolutely, not. What's perplexing to me, I never think it's anybody's business to know my personal business, but when my personal business starts to affect my livelihood — I lost partnerships because it looked like I was pressing on someone's wife."
