Swizz Beatz’s Ex-Wife MaShonda Calls Out Alicia Keys For Adding Insult To Injury

Last week, I posted Alicia Key’s Jet Magazine cover along with some excerpts from her interview, where she spoke about the pre-marriage drama leading up to her highly publicized relationship with Swizz Beatz. In the interview, Alicia Keys said that she and Swizz Beatz did not get together until after he separated from his ex-wife MaShonda. The Harlem native defended her marriage to the music producer. “…[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,” said Alicia Keys.

Apparently, I was wrong when I thought that this chapter in Alicia and Swizz’s lives was closed. Just before the holidays when everybody should be spending quality time with their family, Alicia, Swizz and MaShonda are making headline in the blogosphere world. There are always two sides to every story and sometimes three. With that being said, MaShonda is giving her side again. She spoke to Global Grind to set the record straight.

On her initial reaction when she read Alicia’s JET Magazine 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 if she felt like Alicia Keys’ JET Interview was an indirect stab at her open letter:

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 if she will be comfortable to sit down with Alicia and Swizz to clear the air:

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.

Picture Me Dope: Mashonda Covers KING Magazine

Singer/reality star Mashonda is covering the May/June issue of King magazine. In the cover story, Mashonda talked about the show “Love & Hip-Hop,” dating, groupies, the “loyalty” tattoo on her hand and much more. The May/June issue of King will be on newsstand March 29. Below are some excerpts from Mashonda’s interview:

KING: Can you explain the “Loyalty” tattoo on your hand?

MASHONDA: I got it a year after everything started going downhill. It’s a reminder to me that I have to be loyal to myself for once.

Elaborate, please.

I was so loyal to everyone, and I totally forgot about me. This is what it represents—it represents loyalty to self. Now I have to do things that I love to do, and I have to make myself happy, because I don’t really agree when people say, “I need a man ’cause I want to be happy,” or “I’m not happy because I don’t have a man.” That’s not where it starts. Happiness starts from within, and that’s in my focus.
