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

AllHipHop Staff

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!
