A representative for Swizz Beatz didn’t specify the reason for the separation, but stated the split was “on amicable terms.”
“Their union was one shared in love and deep admiration for one another. For the last seven months, the two have been working on establishing a formidable friendship, being great parents to their son, and remaining great supporters of each other’s careers,” a representative told AllHipHop.com. “The couple has asked that their privacy be respected at this time.”
Despite a looming divorce, the pair will move forward with their entrepreneurial and musical efforts.
Swizz is presently working on a follow-up album to his 2007 sophomore CD, One Man Band Man.
Mashonda is expected to launch an upscale swimwear line, a new venture in music, and hopes to found an arts-based school for children.
That’s a shame. Word has it that, despite the ‘we’re still friends’ statement put out, the split is in fact very messy. I’m beginning to wonder if industry relationships can actually last the distance…
