The singer continued, "And I also don’t think that it is ever important for people to know what I do, who I sleep with, who I date…"

"But in this instance it is very different because as I said, there are so many people that are side-eyeing me, looking at me questionable."

"I have lost money, friendships, relationships behind it and I think it is because people don’t necessarily know the truth."

He continued, "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."

"And I really loved a person, I experienced that and I know what that feels like - and some people never get that in this lifetime."

"I know that I am completely blessed and this conversation is difficult because it is so much, that it would be hard for people to understand but - once it starts to affect me and my livelihood - I have to speak up about my truth."

"...I am only responsible for myself"

Interviewer Angela asked, "Is it disappointing that she never addressed it to you, because like you said, you lost out on opportunities?"

August replied, "I really can’t even get into the thought of that because I am only responsible for myself, right."

"And I am only responsible for, you know. What I do."

"I just always stay solid because I never want to be the person to start confusion."
