TELL IT GIRL! Mashonda Opens Up AGAIN About Her Marriage To Swizz Beatz And What Alicia Did

​ ​ ​ ​


Just in case you were interested, Mashonda is STILL TALKING about her marriage to and divorce from Swizz Beatz.  Just when you thought you'd read it all, the details keep coming.  Read what Mashonda reveals in her most recent interview when you go inside...

In their October issue, Mashonda recently opened up to Sister to Sister magazine about her life with Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys, pre- and post-divorce.  Here are some highlights:


On Alicia Asking Kasseem Jr. to call her “Mommy”:

S2S: You said that Alicia wanted your baby to call her “mommy”. How do you know that she said that?
Mashonda: My son told me.
S2S: And you told her that is not going to happen?
Mashonda: Yeah. I sent her an email and asked her to please respect what I am to him and it’s not right for her to think that is okay. She never replied. She doesn’t reply to me. She has never given me that respect.
S2S: What does Swizz say?
Mashonda: He said okay, he would stop it. He wouldn’t let her do it.
S2S: That would be kind of confusing for the child.
Mashonda: Oh, it is. It is so unfair to the child. I have been in contact with the little girl's mother (the woman in England who has Swizz’s baby). She’s a young girl. She’s a spiritual girl. She apologized to me… I don’t even judge her. I can’t. She’s totally different than the other one. This other one knew. Alicia knew about me 100 percent. Swizz introduced me at prior events. They were signed to the same record company. She knew. And I emailed her and asked her to stop doing what she was doing and she disregarded me. Just like she disregarded me when I asked her to not have my son thinking it was okay to call her “umi.” You’re not his umi. You just met my son.
S2S: “Umi” is like “mommy”?
Mashonda: “Umi” means “mommy” in Arabic. I’m like no. And then after I spoke to the lady in London, she told me that she tried to get her daughter to call her “umi” as well.
S2S: She’s met the lady in London?
Mashonda: Yes. I’m glad she’s having her own child now because now she will have someone to call her “umi”.
S2S: Wow.
Mashonda: Like, if you want to be a stepmother, that’s great. Be a stepmother. But don’t think that it’s okay to make a kid call you “umi” or “mommy.”

On why she continues to talk about this if she moved on:

: People ask me why am I still talking about this and why don’t I just leave it alone. I’m like, this is going to help somebody. My story is a universal thing. This is not just something that only happened to me: This happens to women every day. Mine was just ugly. If I can help the next woman get through and be positive, then I’m going to talk about it.
S2S: Were you guys dating other people before he got with Alicia? Were you guys separated?
Mashonda: We were married. Sleeping in the same bed and having sex every night while he was seeing Alicia. Okay? It was an affair. 100 percent. I don’t know why people want to change that rule so much. We had just had a kid, for crying out loud. Our child was 8 months. I found out about Alicia two days before my son turned 1. They had been doing their thing for months before that.


At this point I think we know as much about Mashonda's marriage as the divorce lawyer, the therapist, her beautician, and Swizz Beatz best friend.  Whoever that may be.  I hope someone is learning from Mashonda's misfortune. And there is also a lesson to be learned from Swizz Beatz.  TIP:  When you get divorced from a woman with access to the media, have your lawyer add in a gag order.  You notice we NEVER hear anything from Al Reynolds.  And he loves attention. Star Jones knew HOW to get divorced.

That's what is so great about

That's what is so great about expressing what is on your mind if everyone felt the same way then they would be putting down the black race like you are right now! It's great you have your say but I laugh all the way to the bank with my ends..We all don't have that same mind set as you...So, let us express what a skank Alicia is. Thats all we ask of you. www.yuregininsesi.com

I think alicia keys is just

I think alicia keys is just trying to let the child feel comfortable and to be able to let him say how he feels she is just being nice. i think moshanda so should try to stop think negative and move on. just her behavior will let her son dislike alicia keys, and thats not something good to teach ur child, disliking someone for being nice its just not worth it. even thou swizz leave her for alicia drop it thats means it will never had lost be happy that you can move on to something better. wonder how she would do if it was the next way round. hmmm life never goes our way, when things go wrong forget it and move on and try not to let it happen again. it happen to many and they just move on to better, if your really a good person then he is not worth it.

Truth is Mashonda doesn't owe

Truth is Mashonda doesn't owe Alicia OR Swizz shit. So if she feel like telling the WHOLE world what's going on she can.. And lets all be real.. There is NO way Alicia is gonna tell her own baby to call Mashonda mommy.. So I don't know why she would tell Mashonda's son to do that.. Lol.

You are one stupid BITCH for

You are one stupid BITCH for the comment you posted on here and you sound dumb as FUCK!!! SWIZZ was the one wrong oall accounts because he been dipping his stick in everybody pussy but for you and the mojority of people to piss on Mashonda because she wants to tell her story is ridiculous. Alicia got off way too easy for the shit she pulled knowing he was married AND trying to have the boy call her "mommy" cause she trying to be NICE?! Bitch please. Mashonda sent her the email to discuss THAT issue not to discuss why you took my husband. She has all the right in the world to do so. Let some Bitch try to get my kids to call them "mommy" and see what happens. I'm their one and only mommy. Alicia was trying to pull another Bitch move by trying that shit. But no one sees the wrong in that just because she's "ALICIA". She has been totally disrespectful on all levels.

Here's the deal YES both

Here's the deal YES both Swizz and Alicia are wrong but in the end although Alicia knew that swizz and Machonda were married alicia don't owe anything to Machonda. It's swizz who didn't haven't enough respect for their marriage so for Machonda to contact Alicia is immature!!! Alicia don't care. This is obviously a pattern with Swizz, Machonda knew who she was with from the get go but just like Alicia she took the risk of getting in the relationship with this SCUMBAG..She should consider herself lucky and leave with dignity instead of making herself look retarded!!! She says that she doing this to help other women that may be suffering, but Machonda already told her story so leave it at that! How many time must you repeat yourself about something that you can't change. IT IS WHAT IT IS!!!! The way I see it and I say this all the time "YOU ARE WHO YOU ATTRACT" Alicia has some "WHORISH" tendencies so she got a man with the same characteristics and when he does the same thing to her she will know!!! She is not exempt TRUST he will do the same thing to her because with him he has no respect for women and he is unstable!!! So Machanda needs to just SHUT UP and go on with her life. And as far as the child calling alicia momma in the end every person has a choice and if the child chooses to call Alica momma then so be it...STOP being immature! In the end the child knows who the blood momma is and you can't take that away!!! I know the issue that Machanda has to go through was messed up but she knew who she was dealing with and she chose to deal with it! POINT BLANK...It's time for women to stop looking like DUMB FOOLS and have some DIGNITY!!! We all know Alicia is a WHORE so enough said no need for Machonda to keep on opening her mouth!!!

Why do you people keep

Why do you people keep abusing Mashonda? How is she making herself look dumb? I certainly do not know the details of this situation but if any of this is true, she has the right to talk as much as she wants. There are alot more people that support her, than do not. People who cannot understand what she has been through must either be cold hearted or individuals who have no problem with breaking up marriages.

I feel sorry for you if this

I feel sorry for you if this is the way you get your kicks by making fun of people. Alicia is beautiful inside and out. Anyway what does the way she look have to do with any of this? You shouldn't be so upset about something you know nothing about. Just because you read it here or Mashonda states it does not make it true. They need to deal with this out of the public eye. I'm glad someone is aware of that. The only person Mashonda is helping by ranting and going on about this is herself. I think she wants the attention and offers and $$$$$$$. Plus if she can drag someones name through the dirt, well that makes it even better, whether it's true or not. She has her satisfaction, but at the expense of her child.

everybody get off Alicia keys

everybody get off Alicia keys dick. She's a hoe. people think bc she is a a good person to the public eye that means mashonda is a bitter/crazy person. To sleep with a married man knowingly is disgusting and to sleep with a married man who has kids is the fucking worst. I have lost all respect for that slut.

We all as alduts to think

We all as alduts to think about the child involve not oueselves. Talking about Swiss Beats and Alicia Keys is not helping you nor your child.Swiss Beats is the one that she needs to be upset with he is the one who you made vowels to noone else. He allowed the relationship to happen. Women are always blaming the women the chick not your friend she don't have to respect you,you are nobody to her.The spouse is the one that promised till death do us part.There is nothing wrong with your child calling another women mom if the child choose too.Remeber noone can replace you as a mom by doing getting upset about that shows you are not over ex husband. The only thing that matter is you two brought a child into the world and that you take care ot this child together as along as that's happening you need to keep it moving.

Got dammit Mashonda, SHUT

Got dammit Mashonda, SHUT UP!!! Instead of making them look bad, you're making yourself look like the weaker party. Alicia doesn't need to respond to you & you shouldn't be talking to her. You need to take that up with Swizz & if he doesn't handle the problem, then you take it to her. Don't email her, don't talk about her in EVERY interview & devote that much energy to their relationship, and don't talk to the other baby mama(s) about the new wife. Move on. Aren't you with someone else??? Stop telling us all your business. This man is not gonna want to continue a relationship with you if he feels you can't keep your business to yourself. Stop talking so damn much!!!

Ok I agree with her not

Ok I agree with her not talking so much about it. Women get screwed over everyday and Swizz was never known to be a faithful man. But doesnt Mashonda have a right to communicate with his new wife?? If my child will be around his father's girlfriend or wife, I need open communication from the father and his new girl.

She does and she claimed in the vibe interview that she did. So why is she still in the media discussing this. Request a meeting discuss the rules for your kid and move on. Nothing that they do will ever be good enough for her, because she is looking for a fight and Alicia will not give it to her.

I am from the west Indies, children do not call adults by theri 1st names or Mrs. anything, every aduld is mama, papa, tunti(aunt), or uncle.

Which part of the west indies

Which part of the west indies are you from? Thats a crock of shit. Im from the West Indies myself and I dont know which west indian woman would let their husbands mistress who stole her husband let their child call them mommy. I think that you are a mad ass to think that that is appropriate. Its either that or you dont have any children and you are waiting for somemone to do that to your stupidy ass. I beliehve you wont be on this site blogging about how you love the fact that your child is calling some other woman mommy,umi or whatever. Shut your ass until you know what that feels like IDIOT!

I am from the Virgin Islands

I am from the Virgin Islands and we do the same thing, it's either Mommy, Daddy, Grandmother, Uncle, Aunti, Tonti or something along those lines, never the first name, regardless of what the circumstance. It's not about the other woman, it is about the child and it is about respect and it is about consistency. Crap happens, but you do not change the way you are raising your children, Adults deal with their adult issues amongst themselves and you leave the children out of it. Plus children eventually have their own opinions of the other person as they grow older, but you do not influence that decision. So you don't know what you are talking about. I agree with the other poster.

So should I still B bitter N brokenhearted, & make my daughter disrespect her? Each situation is diffrent ppl have 2 work out thing on their own. My stepdaughter calls me mama, I am Haitian, my parents still teach me old ways

Your situation is completley

Your situation is completley different than Mashonda's . No need to go into my personal experiences, but I absolutley know that any woman in her right mind would ever be ok with their child calling another women mommy . There is a level of respect that a child should have for and adult including a STEP parent , but there are lines and boundaries that need to be drawn. I am a mother of a little girl and will never tolerate her disrespecting an adult but I will never allow her to call another women mother . I dont care that women's role is in her life and what she has to offer her. This is fresh to Moshanda and so is her relationship with her child. It is absolutley disrepectful and must be heart wrenching for some other woman to not only disrespect your marriage but to also disrespect you as a mother. As far as being west indian what terms you call your elders have nothing to do with the situation. This is about the child and you as a parent. In the caribbean we address all elders as who they are . This has nothing to do with this situation. In life every women's dream is to be called mom or mommy by their child or children. Not to have that taken away from them. Im sorry that you have gone through that situation.But I hope that you have or have had enough pride to not have that other person disrepect you in that way.

To everybody that keep saying

To everybody that keep saying "you would do the same if you were in her shoes"... Fuk that!! No I wouldn't. The point is to NOT BE IN HER SHOES!! Who would want to try them on let alone walk it? NOBODY!! So, when he cheated b4 and didn't respect their marriage she should've told him to KICK ROCKS!! But she chose not to in the name of love. So, don't blame Alicia for her bad choice.

I just feel it is unfortunate

I just feel it is unfortunate that there are so many heartless people in the world today. Is this what the creator wanted? Everyone should be free to love whomever they choose yes; However, Everyone should be respectful of others and honest. If swizz beats was having affairs he was doing it for a reason. Swizz cowardice made him sneak, have unprotected sex with women (putting his wifes health and life at risk) and get women pregnant that he had no intention of being with. He is free to do what he wants but why not let Mashonda know that that is what he wants to do? Why let her have to find out these things? that then becomes intentional hurt. The saddest part of the whole thing is that the choices that he has chosen to make has resulted in a trail of children, some of which may not ever know the feeling of having a mom and dad in the home. Swizz made himself more important than Mashonda, his other two baby mothers that did not know he was married, Alicia, and most important his children. Yes maybe Alicia knew and karma is a bitch! so she will have no choice but to in some way learn what that feels like through experience but she did not rape Swizz. This life is just unfair because we have made it that way in our selfish thinking and actions we have created an std and aids epidemic by being led my our lower self, we have created so many homes with fatherless children because we are only thinking of ourself. I see so many men including my own childs father and Terrel Owens act as immaturely and irresponsibly as swizz and I have watched a lot of them die never accepting responsibility for their actions. So what r we to do? There is nothing we can do but lead by example and try not to perpetuate this cycle. To bad i don't see that happening:(

Mashonda is on the brink of a

Mashonda is on the brink of a psychotic break, she is very inconsistent in her actions and the things that she has said. I understand that these are gossip blogs but this is no joking matter. Mashonda displays signs of a woman on the verge of a complete breakdown; she is displaying signs of being delusional, obsessive and manic. At this point in her healing process she should have accepted the situation and trying to find a peaceful space but she is still at apoint where she is trying to figure out what went wrong, she probably obsesses over this several times daily, she accepts absolutely no responsibility for the marriage ending or for getting into the marriage in the first place and she has zoned in on one individuals although it is clear that others were involved, she is probably obsessing when the child is wit them, does he like her more? Are they talking about me? What are they doing? she has a lot of pent up hostility and one of the main triggers is AK refusal to get in the mud with her. Notice she said she does not respond to me, she has never given me that respect, she craves acknowledgment and respect from AK and it is pushing her over the edge that she is not getting it, this is very serious. If you are a fan of hers or simply care, please reach out to her and ask her to seek help, to seek therapy. It is not good to encourage this behavior or to cheer her on in this; she is on a slippery slope. If you think for one minute that this is a joke just look up Betty Broderick!!!

Girl,this is me. You need to stop. I told you AK has hx of depression. She was out for 2yrs. I don't know how long in the mental institution. Mashonda is well adjusted and now cashing in on this like everybody else. We will have to live this one out. I bet Alicia will lose in the end. She can tell her story. She has a right it is her business her own gossip. It surprises me how people are telling her to stop telling her business. Is it because it is Alicia keys the mistress turned wife.mmmm I wonder. Nobody is forcing anyone to read or write about her comments. Mashonda if you are reading this keep talking and writing We all need to know how we support these false images instead of saving for our children's future.
