Swizz Beatz’s Ex-Wife Says Alicia Keys Lied In Jet Magazine Interview

Mashonda Ex-Wife of Swizz Beatz Has Come Out to Refute The False Information She Claims Alicia Keys Gave During Her Jet Magazine Interview

.

Alicia Keys recently participated in an interview for Jet Magazine in which she attempted to dispel rumors of her being the cause of the marital demise of Swizz Beatz and now ex-wife Mashonda.

After Mashonda wrote an open letter to the songstress about the pain and distress she caused her by participating in an affair with Swizz Beatz, Keys must’ve felt compelled to clear the air. “[They] were apart for some time before we ever got together,” Keys said of Mashonda and Swizz Beatz. “…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.

Mashonda sat down with GlobalGrind.com to refute Alicia Keys’ comments regarding she and Swizz Beatz’s relationship.


On her initial reaction to Alicia Key’s Jet Magzine interview:

Not much surprises me anymore when it comes to this situation. I truly thought that everyone’s priority was the well being of the children involved. I don’t see the sense in throwing oil on a fire, it just takes us back to point A. The Jet interview just added insult to injury. I can’t figure out how this makes us better. How is it a positive, humanitarian gesture? But artists must protect their reputation and I get that.

On her reaction to Alicia Keys’ response to her open letter to her:

There have been many stabs and shots taken, thankfully they don’t bother me the way they used to. I’ve never lied about one thing involving the demise of my marriage. No, we were not “apart” or separated, and that’s just a fact that can be proven in many ways. Blessings have a way of disguising themselves. This situation has helped me to understand life and what really matters.

On how she dealt with the public’s knowledge of her failed marriage:

There is a level of humiliation and criticism that the average person wouldn’t be able to conceive, it really altered my life, but gave me a super thick skin. It’s been a rollercoaster ride. I’ve lost weight, gained weight, lost some hair and almost lost hope and mental focus. For months I saw a therapist because I needed someone to assist me in putting the pieces back together. There was a lot of stress and pain, it’s been challenging. I’ve found ways to cope and not get consumed in a dark space. You have to take care of yourself and move forward. In my case, I have a child and live for him. I have a purpose and I won’t give up on it.

On whether or not she believes the media will stop discussing the triangle love affair:

The public/media enjoys sensationalism, they take pleasure in seeing celebrities make dysfunctional choices. People have unrealistic expectations for celebrities and they don’t realize that they are only human. They have unresolved pain, scars and they make mistakes. What happened in my “triangle” is an old chapter. I forgave everyone involved and I’ve been in a great space. It took five years to get here but I made it, I feel like a victor. At the end of the day, no one can tell me about the life I’ve lived and what I’ve endured as a wife, mother or human. My divorce was just one lesson of many to come, I’ve moved on and I’ve done so in a great way.

On if she’ll ever be able to have a sit-down with Alicia Keys and her ex-husband Swizz Beatz:

They are normal people who have been blessed with talents and great opportunities. Being a star in my eyes isn’t solely about your success in the business, it’s about your success in your personal life, the success of your soul. I’m always ready and willing to sit with the co-parents of my son, that’s not even a question. There isn’t one doubt in my mind that one day it will all come together the way it’s supposed to. We are all a work in progress.

  1. I WOUKD SAY SWISS BEATZ NEW ALL ALONG AND PLAYS THE BIGGIEST ROLE IN BEING WRONG. NOW CAN HE ADMIT TO THAT????? OF COURSE NOT, WHAT MAN WOULD WHEN HAVING THE CAKE AND EATING IT TO.

  2. I THINK THAT SWISS BEATZ EX-WIFE IS SUCH A WOMAN FOR COMING OUT AND EXPRESSING HER FEELINGS ABOUT HER PAST AND BEING ABLE TO ACCEPT THE FACT THAT WHATS DONE IS DONE AND IT SHOULD NOT COME IN BETWEEN THE RELATIONSHIP THAT THE PARENTS HAVE WITH THERE CHILDREN. ALICIA KEYS ON THE OTHER HAND LIKE SHE SAID IS ONLY HUMAN AND YOU CANT EXPECT ANYTHING MORE OUT OF HER THAN YOU WOULD OUT OF AN EVERYDAY ORDINARY HUMAN BEING.

  3. Even now she don’t say anything about the man who left her for Alicia,,

  4. Mz. you can’t even form a correct thought or sentence, you are the one that needs to have a seat. She has every right to talk about a no good man and his new woman. Why should she fade to the background? Wrong is wrong. Stop sticking up for people that make bad decisions, hold them accountable for what they do like the rest of us!

  5. Iam not suprise what a white woman wouldn't do to get a black man.don't worry lady's he's too skinny anyway let the white girl have him.both of them are corny anyway!

  6. Good for you Mashonda!!!!! It is said that living well is the best revenge and you're doing that.Alicia knows full well that you and your husband were not seperated, but what else can she say? Alicia would do well to learn from Fantasia "celebrity and money does NOT allow one to tear down another Sistahs home". It never ends well, another and the best lesson being "if he will cheat with you he will cheat on you". Do you BabyGurl and eff both of them, you're gonna be just fine….iknowwhatispeak

  7. Anyway it go there's in this case there are 4 sides there's and the truth but at the end KARMA is ah B**ch that's ah fact…..

  8. She will reap what she sow! She slept with that girl’s husband and made a song about it!!! Tisk tisk honey, you’ll get it back one way or the other!

  9. Stop checking for her? Plz. Talent just like hated can’t be stopped.

  10. I swear some people can't comprehend when they read. This is a RESPONSE to an interview A.Keys have…. Mashonda didn't bring it up as far as Alicia's new cd most stopped checking for her a long time ago

  11. Stop lying Alicia. Stand behind your decisions with pride.

  12. Someone’s version of the story doesn’t make it a lie. If Alicia sees it one way than so be it. He tools her what he needed to get her, that’s what a man does. None of is is new to this. If he was so horrible, why not wish them well? From all the interviews Ive read, Mashonda is a silly rabbit. She has a problem with Alicia has formed a friendship with the”baby mamas” who he impregnated while they were married. She can have a seat!

  13. Life returns meted measures,
    That is meted out!
    Nuff, Said!

  14. Notice this resurface when Alicia CD is coming out. He's gone. Dammit. Ain't no need to keep crying about it move on. This happen how long ago. Move on.

  15. Rondell Againstallodds Jones

    smh

  16. IDEC! As long as they're taking care of their children & business!

  17. There's an old saying "what goes around comes back around" Alicia better watch it. The same way you get a man, is the same way another woman will take your man.

  18. My thought is this: While Swiss Beatz makes his own money doing his producing and rapping…as long as Alicia Keys stays up – Mashonda's children are going to be up way higher…and actually – Alicia Keys will end up paying for Mashonda's children as well as Mashonda's way of life (like it was rumored before – Alicia payed off his Marital Support/Child Support debt).

    I wish all well…but I have learned my lessons…what goes around comes around…and it's normally a harder/greater slap.

  19. Get over it and move on. Stop going for your 15 minutes of fame.

    • Nicole Suzanne Hackett

      Alicia brought it up she Didn't, so if she's asked she has a right to respond.

    • You are correct. Mashonda's been quite quiet since the Divorce was finalized. When asked about it – Alicia could have said…"…that time is passed and we have no more comments in this area. We are about taking care of our children."

      Done.

      …but it's obvious she lied. Mashonda and Swizz were hugged up at an awards show 1-2 weeks after Keys threw him a party. He was with both women at the same time…and Mashonda had the ring when Alicia first started with him….
