AceShowbiz - It looks like August Alsina has come out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. While appearing on the reboot of VH1's "The Surreal Life.", the "Song Cry" hitmaker revealed that he has a new boyfriend.
The 30-year-old showered his beau with love in a confessional. Noting that the man helped him "find a love that feels limitless," the musician added, "And then what do you know? Love showed up, but in a new way.
“I want to share that and really honor the person that I love and that loves me back and teaching me so much about love and healing,” the singer continued. "I want to do that in front of the world because it defies all the constructs that one would say love is supposed to be or love should look like."
August's beau later showed up to sit next to him. The pair later shared a sweet hug.
"I would say going into it, [the entanglement] probably was one of the factors for me that I felt like, 'Hmm, do I really want to do this?' " he said when speaking to Entertainment Tonight. "Because I didn't want to go into a situation where people would grab for low-hanging fruit."
Ultimately concluding the experience would "allow people to see and experience" his "authentic energy as opposed to the narrative that had been clouding" his image, August told the site he was poised and ready to move on from the scandal since he has "absolutely zero" contact with Jada or her husband Will Smith. "I can only be responsible for my own actions and hold myself accountable for what I do, what I say and what I know to be true for myself," so he said.
