Aw I love Alicia! She is so beautiful and extremely talanted...Congrats!
not trying to be a debbie downer but this isn't just an easy breasy situation.
Girls who make me sad
Chill. I’m not saying engagement and pregnancy make me sad. Of course it’s a wonderful time in Alicia Keys’s life. Just wish there wasn’t a torn family cloud hanging over the news. Because, well, I believe Mashonda. Read Mashonda’s story here. And since I do believe Mashonda’s story, I don’t love Alicia like I used to anymore. But it’s an active conscious retreat. I have to work at it. Which makes a sucky situation even suckier. Duana said this song took on another level after finding out about Swizz and Mashonda.
the letter written by Swizz Beat's ex Mashonda:
After having a great evening with my son and enjoying some fun twit chat, I decided to sign off and get some work done. However, a few hours later I was advised that I should check @aliciakeys twit page. I’ve never reached out to her on twitter before. I feel our issues are a lot more serious than a website conversation. Not to mention that I’ve reached out to her many times in the beginning of this whole thing, as any wife would do. Unfortunately, I never succeeded in getting a response. The 1st time I meet AK, my husband introduced us to each other at an event. ( I have no choice but to call him my husband, until he is not anymore) In the messages that I sent to her (AK), I made it very clear that on the contrary of what she might be hearing, I am still married to my husband, living with him and just had a child. Its been two years and I still have not received a response. What I do receive, is constant displays of selfishness and disconcern to me and my son.
I was a fan of AK’s last album, we were both signed to J Records and I always checked up on her projects. I sang her songs and admired her for creating Superwoman and Karma, I would never deny her, her talent. I believed in her until I found out she was possibly sleeping with my husband. The affair was denied by both, until it was finally admitted months later.
Already I can hear some of you saying ” why are u blaming her, You cant make someone leave their wife, You cant break something thats broken”. Well, my marriage was not broken, as far as I knew we were celebrating our sons birth and getting ready to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary . Call it blind love, whatever. I call it being a devoted wife.. As far as me blaming her and not blaming him, thats false. Me and my husband have worked out our differences. We are in a good place as people and as parents. I accept his choices and I am comfortable enough with myself to move on. I am so very blessed in many ways.
My concern with AK is no longer the fact that she assisted in destroying a family but that she has the audacity to make these selfish comments about love and wanting to be with someone, even after knowing their situation. How is this the same Superwoman that I sang out loud with in my truck? I ask myself sometimes.
If you are reading this Alicia, let me start by saying, you know what you did. You know the role you played and you know how you contributed to the ending of my marriage. You know that I asked you to step back and let me handle my family issues. Issues that you helped to create.
Im not saying everything was perfect all the time but no relationship is perfect. We made a vow to God and I believe you should have respected that, as a woman. I know you owe me or my son nothing but I just wish you would’ve handled things more carefully. I’m not judging you, I put you and the whole situation in the hands of God, the Higher Power. Just know that as a woman, I expected so much more from you. I never had intentions on reaching out to you this way but after reading your twits tonight, and the constant disregard, you left me no choice. I feel that after 1 and a half years of you hiding this affair and acting like it doesnt exist, that now is the time to confront it, since you talk so openly about it now
This is not a publicity stunt, I dont have a record coming out. I just need to close this chapter in my life and that means confronting our issues. There is a small child involved. His dad loves him to death and he wants to spend more time with him but hes afraid because he knows we don’t have a relationship. This is my main concern. My son NEEDS his dad and I NEED to be comfortable with you. For him!
I know many will see my point and many will not be able to look into what’s real because they only want to see Alicia Keys the celebrity, not the human. This is not for the “people”, this is for you. Like I said I was left no choice but to reach out to you this way. By now, Im sure you want to find a balance in this as well.
I read your tweets tonight and I felt they were very insensitive. You have no idea how much pain I was caused because of this affair. Its baffling to me that you don’t understand what I might have gone through with this situation. I dont consider myself a victim anymore, Ive learned alot from this! I just ask you to try and be a bit more realistic and delicate to the situation, at least until my divorce is final. I felt me attending the party would have been a starting point for us, since you shook my hand after I offered it, but I suppose I was wrong.
If its so, that you and my husband are meant to be together, then God bless you both and I hope you never have to deal with what I did. I would not wish it on my worst enemy. If you two being together forever is the case, its more of a reason for us to get along, because I’m not going anywhere. Theres a child to be raised.
To answer your tweet, choose smart over spark. Sparks burn everyone, be smart! Its simple actually, just think of the shoe being on the other foot.
Stay blessed and lets work this thing out with respect and dignity.
What a bad bad story
For real, though. I certainly want to be happy for those who are seeking happiness in their lives, but something tells me this will not end well in the long run.
I wish her all the happiness!
I hope the baby grows up to be healthy and happy.
love her. hate whats happened for her to marry this man. its an ugly situation!
I love Alicia! She's so talented in music!
Congratulations to them!
Awwwww so happy for her!!
One of the best singers ever. She's about 1000x better in concert too.
if he did it with her he ll do it TO her
and i hope he does, this way she can feel what his wife did feel and probably still does
u just don t go for a guy who s married with kids. isn t she supposed to be religious and stuff?
ughh wtv, i just hope she learns a good lesson. as if there weren t enough men out there
If you marry a man who cheats on his wife, you'll be married to a man who cheats on his wife.
there s a group on facebook about women like her, she should take a look
^Well there is a possibility that the man cheats because he's with the wrong person.
Of course I wouldn't know anything more about Alicia and Swizz's relationship so I'm not saying what Swizz has done is right or wrong, not to mention that there are kids involved.
I do believe though that if you love someone and that someone loves you back then the two of you deserve a chance together. It's called love, it's meant to be crazy and irrational, so people shouldn't have to assess the risks of cheating or betrayal before going into it.
knocked up AND engaged? high very high school!
