August said the two became very close, and holidayed together with the family in Hawaii a year later and they even attended the 2017 BET Awards together
He said: ‘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.
‘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 okay with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.
August claims the affair lasted for years.
