He revealed this in a recent interview with Lil Wayne on the season finale of Young Money Radio on Apple Music.
According to him, despite what she said, their affair actually transformed and brought out the King in him.
He added that he never said what he said for attention, and he decided to open up because he couldn’t continue to walk around elephants in the room.
His words, “I feel like when you experience a certain type of experience on this planet and you experience a certain type of love, you, I’ll always, I will always have love for her as a person… Real talk though. Real talk.
“The experience really did help to transform me and really bring out the king in me. But as for what people may say or whatever, or if it’s looking like I might, I’m doing something for attention. Absolutely not…”
“I mean, what’s perplexing to me is that I never think it’s anybody’s business to know my business. And my personal business.
“But, when my personal business starts to affect my lifestyle and my livelihood, like I lost partnerships and deals behind that situation.
“Because it looked to the world as if August Alsina was some reckless New Orleans ni**a that I’m just pushing up on somebody’s wife. And because they didn’t have the truth, those things happened and transpired.
“And then when the truth was revealed, so many of those same people came back around it and apologised to me like, “I’m sorry, my bad. I didn’t know.”‘
“Why am I talking about it now? I mean, I could have spoken about this at any point in my life.
“But when my sister died, it was something that I decided to remove myself from. Because of the complexities of it. And I never want to be the person to cause confusion for anybody in their life.
“But yeah, I couldn’t continue to walk around elephants in the room. And for it to be said that it was okay several years ago, that was what? I think my homie was just telling me that was not even a full two years ago when I dipped from that situation.”
