According to August, Will and Jada had an open marriage from the get go and were allowed to cavort with anyone they wanted at any time.
Primarily, they lived together and slept under one roof but whenever Jada felt like finding comfort elsewhere, she was allowed to do so, the crooner said.
During an interview with Angela Yee, the singer admitted that he deeply loved Will's wife back when he was a young tuck.
He also claimed the two had a hot romance and it was no secret to Will.
"I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation ... He gave me his blessing. I have never done anything wrong. I love those people (the Smiths)," he said.

August further added that his connection with Will's wife was not a fling or on the surface kind of thing.
He was sure the two had a deep connection for many years before parting ways later on.
"I truly and really, really, deeply loved and have a ton of love for her (Jada). I devoted myself to it. I gave my full self to it. So much so that I can die right now, and be okay knowing that I fully gave myself to somebody," the singer added.
Jada once admitted on her show Red Table Talk that when she and Will got married, they verbally agreed that sometimes, they could shack up with strangers.
"I told him, we could be in different corners of the house but be sleeping with different people," she said.
The two consented to an open marriage that allowed them to date outside their union without any sort of judgment.
