Non Hip Hop Rumors: Mashonda Goes In! Alicia Keys Is Caught Between A Rock And A Hard Place

When Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz first began their relationship a few years back, a lot of people were up in arms because of the controversial start to the relationship (you know with Swizz being married with a one-year-old at home). Well, Alicia wanted to put those rumors to rest, and in a recent interview with JET magazine, she was quoted as saying that Swizz and his wife Mashonda were “apart for some time” before her and Swizz started dating.

Shortly after the interview went viral, Mashonda posted a few subliminal tweets on her Twitter basically calling Alicia out for lying in the interview.

Mashonda isn’t holding any punches back, and in a brand new interview with Global Grind, she spoke openly about the situation and says that she has proof to show that they were having a relationship when Swizz was still in a relationship with her. Check out what she said below:

“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.”

Mashonda was especially peeved that Alicia is talking about the situation at all, since she was in the wrong.

“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.”

Maybe it would be best for Alicia Keys to just come clean about the situation, admit that it was a mistake on their part, and move on so she doesn’t have to keep talking about it. Maybe Oprah should give Alicia a call!

  • Sonyafun

    So come on, she needs to stop talking about it and teasing. If she has proof lets see it. And not some Oh I have recepts that show he was in the same place as Alicia and he was following her tour. That doesn’t prove a thing. Concrete proof is seeing with your own eyes that they were together while she was still married and NOT separated. Again what she may have thought was separation and what he thought could have been two different things. Regardless, if she had proof, why would she have not said something sooner or kicked him out the door and made a big deal long ago? It’s obvious she couldn’t trust him but evidently didn’t care because she let it ride with others. I find it hard to believe that Alicia would have went after HIM and especially if he was a happily married man.

  • plsDontreply

    swizz beatz look like a life size muppet baby… These hoes trippin…

    • Li

      LMAO! yeah I don’t know what they see in him,Alicia better not get too comfortable,if he cheated once he is likely to do it again,just my opinion.

  • HipHopStalker

    Of course Mashonda is gonna say Alicia was with Swizz while they were married. She’s saving face because she had her spot taken by somebody who looks better and has more paper then her. He upgraded instead of him being the only bread winner. So Mashonda the old chick is bitching and complaining because she got dropped for a BETTER women. It’s like D.Wade’s ex wife. She has made up countless stories about Gabrielle Union just because she’s no longer his lady and he got one with more benefits. She even went so far to say she gave him head right in front of his kids lol

  • johnblacksad

    Just move on Mashonda… just move on… this type of sh!t happens ten times a day…

  • mashonda kan kum fucks wit dis real nigga right here… bet i keep u smilin an full of dick

  • Weedras

    why ask Keys or blame Keys when Swiss may have been telling her he and Mashonda were separated in the initial stages of the relationship.. and clearly Mashonda hasn’t let it go because if she did a simple interview wouldn’t phase her to go on a tirade about lol!! sour grapes man!…

    • I completely agree, Swizz was the fugged up one, not Keys.
      He owed Mashonda the loyalty, not Keys.

      Not sure if the interview is phasing Mashonda, as much as the tirades are phasing Keys.

      Child support = Paid for Mashonda, and with Swizz being legally married, Swizz & Mashonda’s income is calculated…..and I’m sure their combined incomes generated a child support payment equivalent to Mashonda’s lifestyle Pre-Swizz.

      If she plays it right, her and her baby will have more $$$ in the end, than the in debt artist flossing until the repo / IRS man takes their ‘chet!

      • Weedras

        fo’real! Mashonda should just relax lay off the media hype and just spend that alimony/support money… then again she may need the hype to keep her name out there since she’s a reality star now… and that dude Swiss needs a slap.. dude is on almost every major album, has deals with reebok and aston Martin but can’t pay his taxes… smh… why boast about your basquiats and lotuses when they may be seized…smh…

      • I’m not saying the money makes up for the lack of power in the industry…#I’mJustSaying

        Alicia Keys isn’t some special needs kid who had no idea what she was getting into. I have a hard time believing she was blind and in the dark even if he did lie. They both wrong and will get what is coming to them.

      • Not for me to say what they have coming, but I believe Alicia knew, but not at first! You know Swizz lied!

    • Elvick


      Women should just stop it. They always attack each other, instead of just putting it on the one who was in the relationship and is the one who cheated and probably lied to both of ’em throughout it all.

      Keyshia Cole’s Woman To Woman track comes to mind.

    Mashonda is an asshole! Seriously, she was never in a committed relationship with Swizz. Some people bring home animals in the street, he brought home children he created with other women: Nicole Levy and Jahna in UK.
    Mashonda is so weak because she doesn’t understand that she is the one with a serious problem. She enabled a man who cheated on her. No one wrecked their marriage. They should have never been gotten married and there is reason why she lost her first child because she shouldn’t have had any children. She is a crazy bitch.
