Will Smith has responded to a joke on social media about his wife's 'entanglement' with August Alsina, showing he's thankfully able to see the funny side of an Instagrammer's quip on a skipping video he posted.


Will's wife Jada Pinkett-Smith recently admitted she'd had an affair with the 27-year-old singer, referring to the relationship she had with him as an 'entanglement'.

In the wake of the news going public, Will posted a video of himself skipping, having attached a camera to the rope to show 'what the rope sees' when he's exercising.

The 51-year-old wrote in the Instagram caption: "Next time I'm gonna do it wearing a kilt."

While many of his famous pals posted laughing emojis in reply, one other Instagram user caught Will's attention after leaving a slight dig in the comments on the video.

The user, @thejibby, wrote: "Ok don't get entangled."

You know... because he could get tangled up in the rope, and his wife had an entanglement?!

You'd probably forgive Will for thinking the roast was a little too below the belt, but thankfully he clearly has a good sense of humour.

He replied: "Hahaha... Okay... I can admit it. That's funny.

"I'm definitely gonna block you. But the joke was very funny!"

Jada, 48, had opened up about her affair with August in her Facebook show Red Table Talk, having been joined by husband Will.

Jada explained how she and Will had agreed it was best for them to separate for 'a period of time'.

Urging his wife to reveal what exactly happened after they decided to take a break, Will asked: "And then what did you do, Jada?"

She admitted: "As time went on, I got into a different type of entanglement with August.

"The only person that can give permission in that circumstance is myself.

"But what August was probably trying to communicate, because I could see how he could see it as permission because we were separated amicably, and I think he wanted to make it clear he's not a homewrecker because he's not."

Expanding on what her 'entanglement' with the young singer was, Jada then said: "It was a relationship, absolutely.

"I was in a lot of pain, and I was very broken. In the process of that relationship I definitely realised that you can't find happiness outside yourself."

She added: "I just wanted to feel good, it had been so long since I felt good... and it was really a joy to just help heal somebody."
