In 2010, Swizz Beatz ex-wife, Mashonda, alleged that her husband stepped out on their marriage with Alicia Keys. As a result, Alicia received tons of backlash and was labeled as a “homewrecker.” The songstress took the high road when it came to the accusations, but she’s finally ready to address the matter!
In the new issue of Jet Magazine, Alicia says she remained silent because “there’s no need to fight what’s not true!”
“[They] were apart for some time before we ever got together…that doesn’t matter to those who take pleasure in trying to knock others down…there’s no need to fight what’s not true…”
She also dishes on her love for Swizz Beatz.
“I’d never met a person where I could be fully myself…Swizz and I live in each other’s shadow. So we can occupy the same space and there is nothing but equality. There’s something really powerful about that.”
It seems like they all have moved past the drama and just want to focus on the children that are involved.
Last year Mashonda revealed in an open letter:
“As a mother, Kasseem’s happiness is the single most important thing in my life. It took some time, but I now realize that even my former husband and his new wife, are my partners in this wonderful journey.”
There you have it!
