August Alsina was photo’d hugged up with the CEO of Wilhelmina modeling Bill Wackermann. Bill is a VERY successful mogul – who is openly gay.
Some people on social media are concerned about the photos. One person even asked the question – is August selling his BOOTY for fame??
The BET Award-winning artist quickly rose to fame in 2013 with his single "I Luv This Sh*t" which featured former labelmate, Trinidad James. The following year, he revealed that he was diagnosed with Liver Disease after he collapsed onstage and was in a coma for 3 days. He then began to lose his eyesight and needed surgery.
Last year, Jada Pinkett-Smith interviewed August to set the record straight about his journey. He shared a clip of the interview to his Instagram page captioned:
"Please excuse my defense mechanism in this clip.. I'm sicker than ever & having a hard time accepting what I feel & what the Doctors are saying is most true. After sitting down and talking with my fathers mother and sister.. They explained to me that sickness & illness runs in my family. My father & grandfather both died of severe illness. 😞😒 but they were FIGHTERS & that's all that matters. 💪🏽✨✨✨Just ride with me is all I ask."
The picture white the white Zaddy was taken at the Wilhelmina Agency office, so could he be inking a deal with the world-class talent agency?
Either way, it looks like he is n a much better, healthier place for 2018 and maybe fans can expect a new project from the recording artist.
