Hip-hop maestro Swizz Beatz is finally admitting that he and Alicia Keys are an item — but he wishes his estranged wife, Mashonda, would leave the Grammy winner out of their divorce. Swizz tells us that, yes, he's in love with Keys and, yes, she did give him a birthday party at that museum.
For months now, Swizz has been trying to keep his thing with Alicia on the down-low. Swizz didn’t want to talk about Keys till now because, he says, “What we have is so precious.” He also felt it would aggravate Mashonda, who’s also a singer. “When he told Mashonda he was dating Alicia, I think she got jealous,” says a friend of the couple.
But he doesn’t leave much doubt about who owns his heart on Drake’s new “Best I Ever Had” remix. Having filed for divorce in February, Mashonda is seeking interim support for their 2-year-old son, Kasseem Jr., arguing that Swizz has slashed his payments.“He’s been tightening the screws on her,” says a friend of Moshanda. Meanwhile, she’s seen the charges for jewelry he’s bought Alicia in France.”During the winter, the heat in Mashonda’s Westchester mansion went out. But a pal of Swizz argues, “The house is 30,000 square feet. His advisers felt that was too much, so now he pays her $3,500 a month, on top of the bills.“Swizz has put settlement offers on the table, but Mashonda won’t say what she needs. She drives a Bentley Flying Spur and a Cadillac Escalade.

Wake up in the morning and my baby cooked me breakfast, A's naked wearing nothing on but a necklace …Yeah, she say she wanna treat me like a king; I get big gifts so the money ain't a damn thing She gave me a party at the Guggenheim … Having filed for divorce in February, Mashonda is seeking interim support for their 2-year-old son, Kasseem Jr., arguing that Swizz has slashed his payments.
Having said all that, I'm not defending Keys, I don't even like her. I understand your point but a woman should have enough class to not break up a couples home. Their little Innocent son is gonna grow up in a broken home all because of Miss-I cant-Keep My-Legs-close. 101Disclaimer: Every Nairaland member is solely responsible for anything that he/she posts or uploads on Nairaland.
Even if Swiss made the first move, Alicia should have refused and respected his marriage. Acting classy and pretending to be mother Teresa when she is sleeping with a married man.

When Mashonda told the world that it was Alicia's fault I never believed her. Here is swiss n the ex-wife mashonda and their son!!
I though Ms Keys was too classy to do something like that. Alicia Alicia who writes about broken relationships and how to love,etc.
