"I never really cared about what people thought of me, but my personal life started to seep into my business life," Alsina told People. com.

He continued, "There were certain falsities about me, and it affected my business relationships."I could understand why it would look like I'm reckless or disrespectful so it really started to affect my livelihood, and I'm never okay with that. I got three kids to look after. Kill me, hate me, stone me, but bury me an honest man. All I can do is tell the truth."

The singer does admit he never meant to start any trouble for the Smith Family...

'I Could Understand Why It Would Look Like I'm Reckless Or Disrespectful'


"I'm always going to be in the driver's seat of my life and control my narrative," Alsina says. Adding, "I can't let anybody else do that for me."

Interestingly, the singer was questioned about using Jada Pinkett's explanation of the situation (an entanglement) as a joke to write a song with Rick Ross.

"It was cool when people were able to use it as a mockery of me, like, 'Oh, you're an entanglement,'" he told People.

He continued, "When I flipped it, it became a problem for people. Like, 'Oh, you're clout-chasing.' I'm just doing business. It's not personal."

Despite the backlash, Alsina doesn't see his relationship with the Smith's as completely broken, a family he has 'deep respect' for to this day.

"It's just a part of life, and it's a part of the journey. There's a lot of love there. Sometimes truth is complicated and difficult. But [my relationship with them isn't] broken at all," he said.

As we reported, Jada Pinkett admitted she carried on an affair with the younger singer after he and Will were separated. But, claims it was not a cheating type situation. Both Alsina and Smith addressed the situation on 'Red Table Talk.'

As for his current love life, Alsina says he is single.

"Life is still unfolding. I've spent a lot of time in a relationship. It's like the first time you're back on your own type thing. There's been a lot of rebuilding within myself, a lot of healing within myself that has had to happen. But I'm very okay."
