  • Willow Smith is praising her parents for the way they handled Jada's "entanglement" revelation with August Alsina.
  • The 48-year-old previously admitted she was in a relationship with the rapper while separated from Will Smith.
  • "That's real love," Willow said of her parents, as she discussed the episode in which Jada and Will discussed what happened.


Willow Smith is sharing her thoughts after her mom Jada's "entanglement" was revealed.

Back in July, the 48-year-old addressed the rumours about her relationship with the rapper during an episode of Red Table Talk with husband, Will Smith. She admitted to the relationship – which she called an "entanglement" – while she was separated from the Bad Boys For Life actor.

Now, on Monday's episode of the web television series, Willow Smith has spoken out about what happened, praising her parents for handling things the way they did.

"I want to put it on the table. I'm so proud of you," the singer told her mom. "To be able to see you and dad do that, for me, that was like, 'Okay, that's the real deal.' That's real love."

She added: "When you can be like I'm with you, I'm going to stand by you and I'm going to hold your hand, because I love you. That's really important."

Jada called the moment a "total breakdown of any mask". "Full blast of like flaws and feelings!" she said.
