eyeYeyeYeye: Swizz Beats

On Thursday night(September 24th) Mashonda (Swizz Beats's wife and baby's mother) decided to confront Alicia Keys on Twitter...yes, Twitter! Alicia was tweeting about love earlier that day and MaShonda felt she was being insensitive to her situation since her divorce to Swizz Beats hasn’t been finalized. So she wrote up a long tweet (using twitlonger) to Alicia and claims she will tweet it every day until she gets a response. Check it below:

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.

In case you didn’t know, A. Keys and Mashonda came face to face at Swizz Beats birthday party a little over a week ago but there was no drama as the two shook hands and went on their merry way. MaShonda has been pretty quiet about the situation over the past few months because Swizz Beats sought a gag order to keep her from talking about the divorce proceedings. However Alicia Keys has an album coming out in December, and what perfect timing to jump back on the case for MaShonda.

What is your opinion on this?

    I personally think that this whole twitter thing is beyond me. Honestly, I know that Mashonda could've gotten in touch with Alicia another way. To me it seems like she's playing the victim even though she says she isn't and it just seems like a call for attention.

    I'm not saying that it's okay for Alicia to be having an affair with Swizz, but who are we to know what really went down in this situation?

    He could've cheated on Mashonda with someone else and then moved on to Alicia. I just think that there's something not being said.

    Although their marriage isn't final, there is a such thing call seperation until the finalization of a marriage is done. I don't think ALicia being in the picture will have any effect on their son.

    If I were Alicia I definitely would be ignoring her too. Like to us (by us I mean the general public) Alicia seems like a very well put together young woman that we never see caught up in music industry/media drama at all...until now.

    Mashonda is looking kind of crazy to me. Especially if what sparked this whole thing was Alicia making comments about love on her twitter page. SHE'S AN R&B SINGER!!!!!!!
    Why wouldn't she be talking about love to the general public.

    Some people just read too much into these things (not saying that Mashonda doesn't have a reason not to, but c'mon). It's just looking real funny from Mashonda's point of view. Like she seems like one of those people who wants to hurry up and get her point out there and make herself seem innocent before anyone else gets a chance too so when the time comes and Alicia or Swizz have something to say, they seem like the bad person.

    Though I think this whole twitter message was juvenile, she seemed to had conducted herself in a "professional" manner, but I still think she's crazy. I just pray that this whole thing gets sorted out for the sake of any future relationships and the child involved.
