Swizz, a music producer, was previously married to the No Panties R&B singer Mashonda Tifrere, 33, whom he has a son with.The union between Alicia and Swizz exploded in the media when Tifrere posted a letter online saying that Alicia had 'assisted in destroying a family,' and did a series of 'tell-all' interviews.Meanwhile Beatz’s soon to be ex-wife wants us to know that it’s not true that her marriage was already over when Alicia Keys stepped in and stole her man.Singer Mashonda has penned one of the best “wife to the other woman” rebuttals that I’ve ever read.Not to mention that I’ve reached out to her many times in the beginning of this whole thing, as any wife would do.
And Mashonda has always maintained that Swizz is a great father to all 4 of his kids. Up until about a month ago I thought I was madly in love ....
If Keys did break up with Beatz that didn’t last long, because he told The NY Daily News in May that he was dating Keys and that things were going well.
The two have since been photographed out together several times.
After being branded a 'home wrecker' by some media and bloggers Alicia is maintaining that she did nothing wrong and that her husband, Swizz Beatz, was completely separated from his ex-wife before they got together.'We didn't start seeing each other until months after they had separated,' she said.'I was aware of all the false things that were being said about me it definitely hurt,' added the 30-year-old.
Alicia married Swizz, real name Kasseem Dean, in July last year in Corsica while she was six months pregnant with his child.
