Producer Swizz Beatz recently opened up about his divorce with R&B singer Mashonda and what underlying issues caused their separation.
Beatz says he was never caught cheating while married to Mashonda.
"I don't got a wife no more," Swizz told radio personality DJ Enuff. "I'm 99 percent done, 99 percent. You lucky, you lucky I'm telling you. I'm lucky in a lot of ways, also, with my divorce but it's like the hardest thing I've ever been through. By far. You know what I'm saying? But it was a learning experience. The thing that upset me the most was the approach from the other side, it didn't have to be like that because it's false. It's like false things and having the wrong people around. Pumping yourself thinking you're gonna get a TV show off of so-called exposing. It's like clown things and it's, like, I'm always quiet with this sh*t. I can't answer, I can't even feed into because it's that much foolery to me...The reason why I got my divorce is for real sh*t. I didn't get busted cheating, it wasn't none of that. I had to, I got put into a situation where she was making me pick the relationship with my older son over my marriage." (The Wizards NYC)
According to hip-hop personality Miss Info, the footage was taped a few months ago.
UPDATE: The footage of Enuff and Swizz is from a few months ago. According to one of my legal eagles, Swizz' divorce has since been finalized. Hopefully this means everyone came to the table and found that middle ground. (Miss Info TV)
Last December, Beatz and Mashonda reunited for their son's birthday party.
MaShonda and Swizz Beats put their differences aside over the weekend and threw a lavish birthday party for their 3 year old sonKaseem Jr. Kaseem was a sharp little heartbreaker, decked out in a John Galliano Boys Grey Pinstripe Blazer (retail $310) and some Louis Vuitton sneakers. Such a beautiful family! And MaShonda's glowing. It seems as though she's found a special someone as well.. (Necole Bitchie)
The singer also informed fans of the short-lived reunion via her Twitter page.
"My baby boy is growing, from a child to a man. I will do all I can in my power to make him Great. What a wonderful," she wrote Monday (December 21) morning. " As women we are meant to be strong but as mothers we are built to be INVINCIBLE. There is no circumstance that wi Kasseem Jr. , I know one day u might google us but I just want u to know there was always love. U were always #1. Ok,so moving foward..Ive been in a weird place lately. My heart has been all gushy and soft.LOL. It feels great. Love is in existence! Its nice when God sends us people to speak to.
