After years of holding a rift toward R&B singer Alicia Keys, producer Swizz Beatz‘s ex-wife Mashonda has reportedly put the past behind her and made peace with the duo.
Photos of Mashonda, Swizzy and Keys all hanging out at a beach have surfaced online.
It’s the most unlikely truce in history — Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz’ ex-wife Mashonda … the same woman who once publicly accused Alicia of breaking apart her marriage. The photos were taken this weekend in St. Barts — showing Swizz, Alicia, and Mashonda all vacationing together with their children (Swizz fathered kids with both women). (TMZ)
Back in 2012, the rapper’s ex said Alicia did not reveal the truth about when they started dating.
“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.” (Global Grind)
She also denied Keys’ claim of their relationship ending before moving onto his next hook-up.
“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.” (Global Grind)
In a past Jet Magazine excerpt, Keys hinted at unnamed persons wanting to see harm come out of the situation.
“…[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…” (Jet Magazine)
