Non Hip-Hop Rumor: Alicia Keys Wants People To Stop Calling Her A “Homewrecker”


Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz have been married for two years and have an adorable son together, but some people can’t get past the allegations that these two hooked up while Swizzy was still married. Both Swizz and Alicia have denied these claims, but the unfortunate fact is that these two did, in fact, begin dating while Swizz was legally still married… although he claims to have been separated from his wife, R&B singer Mashonda, at the time.

In a new interview with Jet magazine, Alicia says that she is tired of fighting claims that are “not true,” and she takes the time to clarify the public perception of their union. Check out what she said below:

[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…

I’m not sure how these two even connected, but every time I see a photo of them together, they look really, really happy. They seem to complete each other, and they sure do make some great music together. Alicia says they “live in each other’s shadow,” but in a good way.

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 Alicia and Mashonda have gotten past their issues with each other as well, for the good of the entire family…. Swizz has a son with Mashonda, too. Good for them!

    Then have a Chris Brown policy of no interviews. We are defined in life by the choices we make. If you really want this to be a dead issue then you OWN it. When asked about it you say, “yes that is what happen. I have a great relationship with my husband and a wonderful child. Next question”. If you keep saying no no no that did not happen then the questions will never end. Wanna end it…. OWN it.

    • ‘Chet did happen, but Swizz is the home wrecker, not Alicia……Alicia didn’t owe Mashonda anything!

  • greeneyedbandit

    Mashonda gave an interview awhile back, where she said Swiss was sleeping on the couch cause she didn’t want him in bed with her….maybe that’s what Alicia was talking about when she said,”they were apart for some time.”

    Look, he was going back and forth with Alicia and Mashonda, that’s a fact. I don’t think it’s attractive for a man to leave his young children fatherless. Period. He had three children with three different baby mamas spread out around the world, literally, before he and Alicia got together. She may not have caused Swizz to cheat, he was doing that before Alicia, that’s evident given he has a daughter that was born to an English chick while he was married to Mashonda. REALLY. What respectable man does that. He was a serial cheater, and she wanted that. WOW! He didn’t impregnate one woman he did it to TWO women while he was still married, Alicia being the second one. WOW! Just because Alicia and Swizz have a child together and time has passed doesn’t meant that people forget what she did. She did’nt make him cheat, she aint special, there where SEVERAL women before her. She just happened to be the one he married. Not only did he get Alicia pregnant he was engaged to her BEFORE his marriage was final. That means he had NOOOO respect for his vows, for his wife, for his child, or even for Alicia. He and Alicia could have waited, just simply out of respect for what his vows stood for. Separated is NOT divorced. Not only did he do it, he flaunted it, and so did Alicia. It was hurtful to Mashonda, insensitive, disrespectful, unkind, and unthinkably cruel, and Alicia played a part in that. He was married, period. Swizz obviously told Alicia lies, what cheating man doesn’t? And she obviously believed them. It’s easy for her to call Mashonda liar, b/c she doesn’t want to hear or know the truth. B/c it makes what she did easier on her heart and conscious, and hey by all means Alicia, keep deluding yourself. But in reality, she’ll never really know what was going on in Swizz and Mashonda’s marriage, in their house, and behind closed doors. The where married, and she stepped willingly into it, with NO remorse. SEPARATED is NOT DIVORCED. Alicia doesn’t know what he was telling Mashonda, b/c SHE wasn’t THERE. The bottom line is that the man was married, she got pregnant by a married man, and was engaged while the man was still married. Whether, Swizz was “separated” or not, doesn’t take away the fact that he was married. He not only did it, he did it publicly. Mashonda was humiliated and hurt, who would’nt be. Alicia did’nt care, she wanted what she wanted and she got it. T And for her to say they where separated for “some time”, is ludicrous, the baby was less than eighteen months old. Lastly, she’s always making excuses for him and excepting his lies, when that “sexting” scandal came out about some girl named Christian, where he was texting this girl saying he wanted to sleep with her, and F@@@ck her, ect. The girl put him on blast, and Swizz basically called this chick a liar……I’m sure she believed that too. But EVERY WOMAN can’t be a liar Alicia. Get Real. He WILL cheat on you, but he probably won’t do it as flagrant with you as he did it with Mashonda. He’ll be a little more careful, but he will and he probably is cheating. And you deserve it.

    • get over it Mashonda, he did what he did and its done, move on..n if ur not Mashonda then ur fuckin pathetic for being this obsessed with ‘celebrities’ who dont know u exist

    Look, he was going back and forth with Alicia and Mashonda, that’s a
    fact. I don’t think it’s attractive for a man to leave his young
    children fatherless. I don’t think that’s an honorable or a manly thing to do, but I guess that’s o.k with Alicia. He had three children with three
    different baby mamas spread out around the world, literally, before he
    and Alicia got together. Now he has four different baby mama’s if you count Alicia, I mean, really. She may not have caused Swizz to cheat, he was
    doing that before Alicia, that’s evident given he has a daughter that
    was born to an English chick while he was married to Mashonda. What respectable man does that? I mean, if you’re going to cheat don’t bring children into that mess, be a man and wrap it up. He was not only a cheater he was an irresponsible cheater. He clearly didn’t know how to use protection, and that’s dangerous. He didn’t impregnate one woman he did it to TWO women
    while he was still married, Alicia being the second one. Just

  • i’mreloaded!

    I don’t see the problem if they were already separated. I think it’s more of Mashonda hatin to see him wit anyone else, not to mention someone like A. Keys. Let them folks live man. Plus if it happened like everyone else is saying, it will come back ten fold on Alicia. God see’s everything. Trust me.

  • 7yoyo7

    Nobody cares about this shit. But sydney lace wrote about it.
    Nothin but gossip horseshit.

  • Oknas

    HOMEWRECKER!! lol

  • Scrapple66

    Uhm, the wife was five months pregnant when they got together (and they were still married) so, no, sorry, Alicia, you are, in fact, a homewrecker. Even if they were on the outs, she still could have chosen to wait for them to get divorced first! Just can’t think of her as anything but sleazy now (or Leann Rimes. Or Claire Danes).

  • some ppl need a life Alicia and Swizz got to much money to worried about what ppl think about them u know why i am mad at Swizz because Alicia should be with me.
