“Absolutely not true!” Pinkett Smith’s rep told Page Six on Tuesday, June 30.

The “No Love” crooner, 27, dropped the bombshell allegation during an interview with The Breakfast Club cohost Angela Yee about his new album, The Product III:stateofEMERGEncy.

“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership that they’ve spoken on several times,” he claimed during the conversation, which was uploaded to his YouTube channel earlier on Tuesday. “He gave me his blessing.”

Alsina explained that the Girls Trip star’s son, Jaden Smith, introduced them in 2015. The following year, he joined the Smith family on vacation in Hawaii. Alsina and Pinkett Smith, 48, also attended the 2017 BET Awards together.

“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love and have a ton of love for her,” he told Yee, 44, in Tuesday’s interview. “I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it — so much so to the point that I can die right now and be OK with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.”

He continued, “I really loved a person. I experienced that and I know what that feels like — and some people never get that in this lifetime. So, I know that I am completely blessed. And this conversation is difficult because … it would be hard for people to understand, but once it starts to affect me and my livelihood, I have to speak up about my truth.”

When the radio host asked the New Orleans native whether it was “disappointing that [Pinkett Smith] never addressed” their alleged relationship, he responded, “I really can’t even get into the thought of that because I am only responsible for myself, right? I am only responsible for, you know, what I do. When I am repressing and suppressing things and it starts to affect me, I have to address it. I just always stay solid because I never want to be the person to cause confusion.”

Alsina went on to say that he “really, genuinely” loves the Smith family and has “literally never been in love” in the way that he was with the Red Table Talk host.
