Just when I thought the Alicia Keys-Swizz Beatz-Mashonda love gate was coming to a close, I find out it’s not over, yet; one person hasn’t had her say about the situation, and that’s Mashonda. You know, I’m a little biased (ok a lot biased) and this is probably a Team Mashonda blog. So naturally I had to post her last words on the matter before we bring this drama to a close. So here it is, in her own words, a special two part interview with VIBE.
PART One: This interview is open and deep, I’m not going to lie y’all. She talks about Swizz Beatz prior affairs, and a miscarriage. This is a must read!!! Anything you ever wanted to know she tells…
I know it was very important for you to sit down with Alicia if she was going to be around your son. Safe to assume that happened?
When I wrote her that Twitter letter everybody wanted to say things like ‘Oh, what do you need to meet her for? It’s not her problem, it’s Swizz’s.” I’m like, ‘You have a kid, go through what I went through and then talk to me.’ I’m not having my son around anybody I don’t know. I don’t give a shit who you are and how much money you have and what management he’s going to be under when he visits you. I need to see you and I need you to see how serious I am about him. And that’s what happened. We had to sit down, and I told her how I felt. I didn’t mention anything else, it was all about my son and it was fine after that. I’m not going sit and talk to [them] about what happened between the three of us. This is about my son.
When did this meeting finally take place?
It took a good year and a half. I think that only happened in March.
How was Alicia’s demeanor?
She just listened.
This all sounds like a really awkward gathering…
It wasn’t awkward; I wouldn’t have done it if I wasn’t ready. I said what I had to say as a mom. It was a whole sit down dinner. So you know how intimate that is. There are certain things we have to do as women in order to move forward.
Very true, have you received an apology from either one of them yet? Continue Reading →
