Swizz Beats & Mashonda Trade Jabs On Twitter

Never ones to wallow in salaciousness or outright gossip, we’d previously not covered the Alicia Keys/Swizz Beatz/Mashonda love triangle, as – let’s face it – nothing concrete had been alluded to by any of the parties involved. However, today saw hitmaking producer Swizz, real name (Kaseem Dean) and ex-wife Mashonda take to Twitter in a sparring of words over Swizz’s controversial relationship with R&B star Keys (who it’s alleged he started a relationship with WHILE still married to Mashonda).

After being goaded by his critics, Swizz wrote the following on his Twitter:

“All people want to talk about is my divorce. Wow! F**k what they say or said. I’m a good man, but when it’s time to move on, it’s just time! I’m also a great f**king Dad, but nobody give a sh*t! People talking about I cheated. How the fuck can I cheat when I was separated, ass-holes? It’s been damn near 2 years”.

To which Mashonda retaliated on her Twitter with:

“Here’s the bottom line, you were married when you started your affair, you’re married now. And both of you knew what it was. Separation came after the fact. Now peps, this is why it’s important to keep God 1st! I’m not gonna battle my son’s father on twitter about his mistress. Ya’ll WON! But just know! I never lied and NEVER will. Thank God we are doing this before 2010. My new year will not involve this scandal. That’s all folks”.

Both parties have since taken down their Tweets, however clearly the damage is done. Everyone and their mother’s tongues will be wagging about this one – yet neither Swizz or Mashonda have anyone to blame but themselves. Airing out their laundry in such a public domain, IMO, almost makes it an inevitability that folks will chew it up and come to their own conclusions – on a matter which really and truly should never have been their concern to begin with.

I’d probably have to say I’m most disappointed with Mashonda, not because I’m taking sides (Lord knows only they know what really went down), but because this was all brought into the public domain when she openly cited Alicia Keys as the reason for her marriage breaking down way back when and thereafter pouring fuel on the fire by constantly talking about it thereafter. Important to stress, once again, is the fact that I’m not taking sides (it’s not my position to) neither am I playing down any pain Mashonda may be experiencing. Yet, with her being an adult and a lady, I’d kinda expect a more dignified approach to the matter – especially since they have kids together. What’s more, as a firm believer in Karma, had what she been saying been true, surely Karma would get back those in the wrong. Instead, there’s one big mess all out in the open for the public to devour. SMH…

    lol, twitter was on fire last night..well alicia needs to stop like an angel and that is where mashonda is comming..she sings about being this pure woman yet the b**** sleeps with married men… swizz also needs to shut the hell up coz he cheated..being with someone for years does not erase how you got together…lol @ mashonda for putting both on blast and slaying them..

  2. carla December 12, 2009

    Sam, severely disappointed in you. How is it Mashonda fault. He was sighted boarding a plane with Alicia this week going to paris opennly. People must have tweeted him about it and he got mad and spewed on twitter, not her and it was lies She just corrected him.

    He cheated on her, she is not a public figure and has a right to say what she wants. Where is the blame for Swizzy and Akeys- u full of s*** on this one.

    Both swizzy and Alicia are hypocrites and I stand firm with Mashonda. Swizzy just confirmed for the first time what was just gossip and u blame mashonda. She is the wronged one and has a right to manifest her pain how she wants.

    I noticed u didnt say anything about Alicia Keys having an affair with a married man…typical stan.

  3. Anon December 12, 2009

    This is easily the least exciting love triangle ever.

  4. carla December 12, 2009

    oh, i forgot #teamMashonda on this one and remember, the same way you got him will be the same way you lose them.

    I like A Keys music and she seems like a nice person but after this, i look at her differently. What happened to telling someone if you love me enough, u will get divorced first then come see me.

    Just a hot mess!

  5. SnijanaFleur December 12, 2009

    Anytime you say “I’m most disappointed with Mashonda, [and add] not because I’m taking sides,” you know you are Sam.

    It’s unnecessary to place MOST of the blame on Mashonda’s shoulders just because she’s the wronged woman in the situation. She’s as human as the others involved in the situation.

  6. renee December 12, 2009

    @snijanifleur: Exactly! What is the use of Sam writing that disclaimer after he blamed MAshonda. She’s hurt and all this rubbing salt in the wound is unecessary and meanspirited. Call alicia keys out for releasing ‘Try sleeping with a broken heart’

    Everytime I hear that song, I think of Mashonad, now that’s heartless! *Kanye shrug*

  7. dont take shyt December 12, 2009

    EFF Mashonda
    I think that she is upset because its Alicia that has her EX
    does it REALLY matter WHO he left her for
    obviously he was not HAPPY because if he was he would still be there
    I think that their marriage was OVER way before Alicia came into the picture
    Mashonda is just being a BYTCH
    looking for somebody to blame

    Talking bout he STILL MARRIED
    grl let that shyt go
    he dont want YOU no more
    DEAL WITH IT

  8. AWOLLUVA December 12, 2009

    I’m certainly in agreement with most folk here, Mashonda is not to blame – the other two are. It’s not as though she started the whole twitter thing anyway, she was only responding to what he wrote first.

    Hopefully at the end of the day they can all find a way to forgive and forget, for their offspring’s sake.

  9. December 12, 2009

    Mashonda needs to stop being so damn bitter and drop it. This is the only way she’s relevant, so releasing the letter about Alicia and constantly talking about it on Twitter seem to be what she does these days. I’d have much more respect for her if she’d keep it classy.

    I can’t comment on their situation, as NONE of us know what actually happened. I find it funny that everybody’s blaming Alicia and NOT talking anything about Swizz. If Mashonda/Swizz weren’t separated and there was cheating involved, it’s not just the woman’s fault.

    So basically co-signing DONT TAKE SHYT all the way.

  10. SMDH December 12, 2009

    I agree with Sam. Its not about taking sides because in the end sides don’t matter. These folks don’t know US. Yet Mashonda is the one that started twittering to the world (people she doesn’t know) personal matter she was trying to discuss with Alicia who in turn did not respond. Yes they are public figures when on their jobs but their personal lives should remain just that. If millions of strangers started knocking how we lived our lives we’d seriously be on some wtf reactions. But yet we’re all ready to throw stones at a situation that we only heard about. God will deal with this as only he can. No matter who was in the wrong. If Mashonda was done wrong she will soon be blessed and God will deal with her “enemies” accordingly. So instead of turning to twitter she should have turned to prayer.

  11. B December 12, 2009

    Um, Swizz and Mashonda are STILL married. Thus, Alicia Keys is dating a married man. Mashonda has every right to be upset and lash out publicly, especially when her husband and his mistress are globe trotting for all the world to see with little shame. How anyone expects her to turn the other cheek in this situation is more than beyond me, when many people know that they would probably react in the same manner, if not worse.

  12. KIM December 12, 2009

    I follow Mashonda on twitter and SHE started the whole thing making remarks about the pics of them in Paris together. People were retweeting Swizz and he was getting comments from folks so that set him off. And how are he and Alicia flaunting their relationship in her face when they’re in another country and a photog took their pic at the airport. Mashonda needs to move on, it’s been two years already. If it were someone other than Alicia, she wouldn’t be so bitter. She’s jealous and needs to find her own man and live her life.

  13. Ho Sit Down December 12, 2009

    Mashonda,

    Get a effing life! He is not your man anymore. Bitter much?

  14. Quinn December 12, 2009

LMFAO She better be lucky for the New York song with Jay cuz no one is checking for her other songs! And Sam, how you gonna talk about you don’t want to get into other peoples business – thats what you do for a living! SMH

  15. Erica December 12, 2009

    DONT MATTER WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT anybody says about mashonda..SHE TOOK VOWS WITH SWISS JUST LIKE HE DID…WHEN YOU ARE MARRIED YOU DON’T BREAK YOUR VOWS.NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS IN THE MARRIAGE..IF THEIR DIVORCE WAS FINAL..THEN THAT’S A DIFFERENT STORY…WRONG IS WRONG…People should really find out what MARRIAGE is before they get into it thinking DIVORCE is the easy way out….THEIR VOWS clearly state thru better and thru worse..thru sickness and in health till DEATH do you part..neither one of them aint dead so what the excuse for not working things out? lol…im sorry but ALICIA is wrong for messing wit a married man and swiss is wrong for cheating, and Mashonda is right….problems within the marriage is problems within the marriage…whoever steps outside the marriage is WRONG bottom line…no way around it….Swiss and Alicia just lost a fan…(like they care…lol)…I was buying her album but that’s just dirty…can’t support homewreckers! SOWWY!!! LOL..

  16. SHELLZ December 12, 2009

    People please do not be Misled. Even you are married, and seperated you are still married. THis means that you are committing ADULTREY. I have lost respect for Alicia Keys . Black women have it hard enough raising their kids, and for one of their own to come in and help destroy that beautiful black family is unacceptable.

    I hope that if ALicia Keys gets married to him, that the same thing happens to her, maybe then she will learn.

    As a woman we need to stop and think about other women and their feelings before trying to take their man, especially if they are married. Alot of people will have to answer to God. what god has YOKED TOGETHER LET NO MAN TAKE APART. KARMA TO ALICIA.

  17. candance December 12, 2009

    I see we have a lot of young un-intelligent teenagers on here. Does anyone serve the Lord, because if you do, do you not know that Alicia and Swiss is wrong.

    Swiss is married, just because you are seperated doesn’t mean you cheat.

    I hope she takes every dime.
    He look like a bird anyway. And thats why Beyonce is doing so much better than Alicia, man stealer Keys.

    Beyonce has Class

    Mashonda comes off bitter because she has never stopped talking about it and I do believe it is because of who it is. Lets be real if it was a nobody as in not a calebrity we would not have known anything and the divorce would not be dragging out. I knew nothing about this situation until her twitter rant which was based off a topic that had nothing to do with her. Now it just becomes his word against hers. He says they were separated and she says he cheated. So we will never truly know. Whether we like it or not people especially celebrities date while seperated. Mary J Blige did it with Kendu and Kimora and Rusell etc…. Swizz just let the criticism get to him which is what Mashonda wants, he should have taken a page out of Alicia’s book and just kept it moving. I think what really got to him is the part about him being a father, Mashonda has used that often and in that case I would respond. But folks not on twitter no need for that. I no longer believe Mashonda when she said it is about her kid because if it was she wouldn’t let the media in her family life, she would protect the privacy. Now his parents divorce will always be a google search and mouse click away.

  19. mrs obama December 13, 2009

    b**** needs to get over it, he does not want your ass, if you had granted the divorce you would be divorced, yet you hold on to a man who clearly does not want you. where is you self esteem get over it and move on….

  20. Raychel December 13, 2009

    @Mrs Obama are you crazy? they are still married! how in the HEC are you gonna talk about mashonda in such a vulgar way when he is CLEARLY still committing adultery. he hasnt divorced her yet! do you even see the reason behind her bitterness?

  21. Dila December 13, 2009

    Clearly Mrs Obama is a side ho/ jump off ,to somebody, or she wouldn’t be saying such ignorant things. You cannot force someone to stay married. The courts will grant you a divorce if the other person refuses to sign the papers. You have some nerve putting Mrs anything in front of your name. I know you a h**, coming in here with your how quotes bish get lost!!!

  22. Dila December 13, 2009

    I meant H** QUOTES!!!

  23. The One December 14, 2009

    Sam if you ao anyone else can’t see why the women is upset and bringing this subject up to amy who will listen than you have never been hurt by anyone you loved in that way!!! That was her husband and if he choose to cheat on his wife with another women don’t get mad if your wife talks about to frends, in the public, on the radio, etc……… Did he care about the [pain he caused her? ……..and lets not get on the lack of respect for your childrens mother and humiliation she had to endure!!! Sam I see you know nothing about matters like this just like you have No Idea as to walk you are talking about when it comes to music!!!

  24. Never December 14, 2009

    Mashonda mantra, “We belong together” “I can’t let go”

    Swizz I’m out!!!!! over 2 years ago………..

  25. F U December 14, 2009

    “DONT TAKE SHYT” I DON’T KNOW WHO U R BUT I LUV U. I FULLY AGREE WITH U. THIS IS WHAT I BELIEVE AND I THINK ONCE STATED BEFORE. GRANTED I AM NOT EITHER ONE OF THESE PEOPLE AND AM NOT IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO FULLY KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON BETWEEN THEM BUT IF YOU ARE MARRIED, HAVE MONEY, AND OWN NUMEROUS HOMES WITHIN A GENERAL AREA IN NEW YORK AND YOUR HUSBAND STAYS IN ONE RESIDENCE WHILE U STAY IN ANOTHER LESS THAN AN HOUR AWAY AND HE HAS NOT STAYED HOME WITH YOU IN OVER A YEAR, HOW DO YOU CONSIDERED YOURSELF TO BE MARRIED? FROM MY UNDERSTANDING SWIZZ HAD A HOME IN UPSTATE NEW YORK WHERE SHE AND THEIR CHILDREN LIVED AND HE ALSO HAS A HOME IN NYC. IF UR HUSBAND IS NEVER HOME WITH YOU AND ALWAYS AT HIS OTHER RESIDENCE FOR OVER A YEAR IS THAT NOT LITERALLY A SEPARATION? I UNDERSTAND TAKING VOWS. I GET THAT AND I RESPECT THAT BUT I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT PEOPLE CHANGE AND RELATIONSHIPS CHANGE. SO IF SWIZZ FELT IT BEST TO SEPARATE HIMSELF FROM HER BEFORE HE FULLY UNDERSTOOD IF HE WANTED TO BE MARRIED TO HER ANYMORE, I RESPECT THAT TOO. AS FOR ALICIA, PEOPLE WHO ARE MARRIED ON PAPER BUT NOT MARRIED TO THEIR SPOUSE IN THEIR HEART AND ARE SEPARATED FROM THEIR SPOUSE CAN DATE OTHER PEOPLE. SOMETIMES IT TAKES A PERSON TO SEE WHATS OUT THERE TO REALIZE THAT THEY VALUE THEIR MARRIAGE MORE AND DONT WANT TO BE SEPARATED ANYMORE AND SOMETIMES LIKE WITH SWIZZ YOU REALIZE YOU WANT TO MOVE ON. IF SWIZZ IS TELLING ALICIA THAT HE’S SEPARATED AND WANTS A DIVORCE FROM HIS WIFE BEFORE HE DATES HER THEN WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? THEY ARE BOTH ADULTS. IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT IF HE’S TELLING ALICIA HE’S SEPARATED FROM HIS WIFE AND TELLING MASHONDA THAT HE WANTS TO GET BACK TOGETHER AND BE A FAMILY AGAIN. THEN SWIZZ WOULD BE AN ASSHOLE AND WOULD BE PLAYING THE BOTH OF THEM. MASHONDA SHOULD SERIOUSLY MOVE ON. I THINK SHE FEELS THEARTENED BY WHO HE’S DATING AND NOT THAT HE’S DATING. IF ALICIA WAS JUST A REGULAR FEMALE WORKING AN ORDINARY JOB I THINK MASHONDA WOULD THINK THAT IT WAS NO BIG DEAL AND HE WOULD COME BACK BUT SINCE IT’S ALICIA KEYS AND SHE’S FAMOUS THEN MAYBE SWIZZ REALLY DOESN’T WANT HER ANYMORE. I DONT’ KNOW . MAYBE. ASK THEM TO BE SURE. LOL

    ITS NOT FAIR TO THE CHILD TO KEEP SOMEONE STUCK WERE THEY ARE NOT HAPPY. IT DOESNT MATTER WHO IT IS AS LONG AS EVERYBODY IS A WINNER. LIKE THE MAN SAID ITS OVER, LET US FOCUS ON THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS HE HAS GIVEN AND DONE NOT WHO HE IS WITH, AND HOW HE WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE US MOVE WITH HIS DOPE BEATZ. LOVE IS LOVE AND AT THE END OF THE DAY IT IS WHAT IT IS…. PEACE

    “(who it’s alleged he started a relationship with WHILE still married to Mashonda).”

    He had separated from Mashonda and they were divorcing when he dated Alicia. Mashonda herself later clarified this, after she stopped being as angry and in denial as she was about her years-broken relationship ending. Swizz had clocked out of that relationship several times, and had two kids with other women while he was actually with Mashonda, one before she married him. Mashonda should’ve ended it long ago but for some reason she wouldn’t/couldn’t. She then lashed out when she realized it was over, he formally separated and divorce was impending, and targeted the third woman, the most famous one, that he then dated.
    When two people are separated, not emotionally, and divorcing, the only thing that makes them married is a meaningless legal piece of paper that is about to overturned legally when divorce is final. It’s practically no different than someone who marries someone to get citizenship – they’re only married on paper. When a person is separated and already dating someone else – they’re not in the former relationship anymore.
