Mashonda and Alicia Keys are back at it. Just when it seemed like Mashonda, Alicia, and Swizz Beatz could all come together and be co-parents and try to peacefully exist for the sake of the kids involved, it looks like the ladies are back to shading one another about how Swizz and Alicia allegedly got together. Mashonda has always claimed that Alicia Keys began dating Swizz Beatz while she was still married to him. Although they were separated, Mashonda says she was under the impression that she and the producer were working things out and she had no idea he was seeing Alicia romantically. She even claimed that she found receipts from their outings and contacted Alicia several times asking her to back off. But according to Mashonda, Alicia continued to pursue Swizz Beatz.
Alicia is obviously tired of the allegations, as the rumors have made her image take a hit. So ever since Mashonda has gone public with her side of how things went down, Alicia continues to deny the allegations in her interviews.
And once again, she brings up the “homewrecker” claims in an interview with Jet Magazine. In the interview, she basically said that she didn’t start dating Swizz until he and Mashonda had been over for “some time.” Then she alluded that Mashonda was making all of this up to “bring her down.” She says:
“…[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…”
It was just a matter of time before Mashonda responded. And as to be expected, she says somebody is lying and it’s not her.
She tweets (read from the bottom up):
