Swizzy’s Ex-Piece MaShonda Challenges Alicia Keys to Woman Up!!!

Alicia Keys has pissed MaShonda off for the last time. AK sent a tweet to her followers saying: “Having a heated debate n the studio. Question is…N love is it better to go 4 the choice that is ‘SMART’ or the choice that has ‘SPARK’??”

In response to this tweet, MaShonda wrote a letter to AK on Twitter. After reading the whole thing, she came to Alicia like a woman… Even though it was on Twitter.

Pop the Hood for the Letter

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. It’s 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 can’t make someone leave their wife, you can’t break something that’s broken.” Well, my marriage was not broken, as far as I knew, we were celebrating our son’s 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, that’s 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.

I’m 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 doesn’t exist, that now is the time to confront it, since you talk so openly about it now

This is not a publicity stunt, I don’t 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 he’s 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, I’m 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. It’s baffling to me that you don’t understand what I might have gone through with this situation. I don’t consider myself a victim anymore, I’ve learned a lot 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 it’s 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, it’s more of a reason for us to get along, because I’m not going anywhere. There’s a child to be raised.

To answer your tweet, choose smart over spark. Sparks burn everyone, be smart! It’s simple actually, just think of the shoe being on the other foot.

Stay blessed and let’s work this thing out with respect and dignity.

    This situation is far too messy and should have been avoided — and there’s a young child involved. It’s bad business all the way around, IMHO.

    Nope! You’re a hoe.

  • truth be told (the original)

    Although I think Twitter was not the best avenue to get this message across I still have a lot of respect for Mashonda. She’s better than a lot of women I know and truth be told she can do a lot better than Swiss and she will when the time is right. Wish them all the best though and I hope Alecia can woman up too because of that innocent child. I hope you’re paying attention Swiss.

    No “woman” would conduct herself publicly this way – Mashonda tweeting ber business -classy

  • tonyspark

    I feel bad for her (ex-wifey.)Alicia Keys the homewrecker. I don’t think I would have made this letter public though. Desperate situation with hurt feelings…maybe I would have.

    • S@DIEM@E

      when you want to be heard and your not getting the attention you seek…you’ll be surprised what LOVE will make you do, Expectally with a broken heart. She just had that man’s baby…you can feel on that letter every bit! AK seems to not want to address the situation at hand with her, the sad part now there both going to be around forever. TWO KIDS to be raised…well soon be!! God Bless Everyone…hate to see ish like this within our black community. We should support BLACK LOVE! But you got those ppl that wont respect a relationship non what so ever. Do what ever just to get what they want…I agree a “Spark” will bill burn everyone. Now you see AK smiling & acting happy being prego and newly married. SMH>>> you just stole someone else man & happienss in her life with him

    I don’t like the way AKeys talks like she does so much for the children but yet I guess Swizz son don’t matter she would rather destroy his family.Isn’t that the child she should care most about.

  • h to the heezy


  • http://bossip Akeys_Stan

    Yes Alicia was wrong and so was Swizzy …My beef is after Two years Now Mashonda wants to bring this up? And What the hell does Mashonda want with Alicia anyway .They have moved on and so should you

    Who Puts their Business on Twitter like that .SMH

  • truth be told (the original)

    I realized why Mashonda did this on Twitter though, just about the whole world is on Twitter and if A keys won’t respond to her when she reaches out to her in private this is a sure way to get a response from her because all her fans, and non fans like the media and people who can turn a buck off spinning this are going to be able to read this. This is not the kind of press she needs to be getting right now when there’s an album on the way. There is an album on the way right?

  • Raina

    Wow. Definitely team Mashonda. Keys joins the long line of gorgeous celebrity women who can have any man they want and decide to take someone elses. Selfish.

  • http://bossip miss dior

    This is very tacky and pathetic of her put this on twitter, this is not going to stop people from buying her albums, why is she reading her tweets in the first place, very low of her, she comes across as bitter and desperate, Akeys dont have to explain anything to you, woman, if need explanation ask your husband, the only sin she committed was she should have waited for the divorce to be finalized, hope Alicia doesn’t respond this nonsense on twitter, he was going to leave her anyways and unfortunately it was alicia, and she is trying very hard to make her look bad, what Alicia said had nothing to do with her, she doesn’t get any sympathy vote from me, stop tweeting too much and get therapy for the hurt and bitterness, because he’s definitely not coming back, and if you’ve accepted his choices and feels comfortable enough to move on what else do u want from her, she better learn something from Jennifer Aniston and be a classy woman and let it go. I don’t believe she will stop him from seeing his son.

    • nokeysforthekeys

      It’s oh so clear thatyou miss dior has been or is in AK position. How many married men have you dated? If you can’t understand what she want’s with AK let me try. She wants her to womam up and meet with her for the sake of her son! It’s not about Beatz any more it’s about her feeling secure that AK will be respectful of her son when he is in AK’s company. Many an other woman especially when they have a baby from the man who “left his wife for me”, have no respect for his first children. If AK hadn’t put this issue on her twitt Mashonda would never have written the letter. She will suffer the same fate…Karma is real!

    • Stephanie

      I don’t think the letter was tacky. She did not cheat on her husband. I do think that the letter was a desperate attempt to get her ex-husband’s attention.

  • chocomilk

    AK needs to hire the same publicist as Angelina Jolie….SMH at this mess. Can’t believe she would ruin her reputation for a man!

  • Damn AKeys....WHY!!!

    I too was also a fan of Alicia until I heard of this situation. In a way, I feel I have lost respect for her musically because she does not stand behind her own hype. How can you sing about being strong, Karma, and Superwoman, or even a womans worth when you are aiding in the destruction of a marriage. Swizz Beats is totally at fault for being inconsiderate and not manning up to an end, or resolution, but any woman who would preach sisterhood in one breath and is out with married men in another, is a Hypocrite. Sorry Alicia Keys YOU ARE A BIG AS* HYPOCRITE and should really recenter yourself. And those of you who support her and Swizz Beats is just as sick as they are..

    • nokeysforthekeys

      I agree 100%….all that crap she was singing was just that crap! She should have really sang from her heart..”I need a man, any man…single married it doesn’t matter…my songs I’m faking I want him even if he’s taken!”

  • nana

    I love mashonda even more,that woman is intelligent and classy,the way she handle this is just to be applauded,you go girl,do what you have to do,Alicia K I have never been a fan and will never be,,,but swiss made his choice,which is bad because he was his main concern not his son..but he did make his choice…

  • not a dummy


  • truth be told (the original)

    @ Miss dior

    I don’t have any children but if I did and me and the father weren’t together, I would have to have a ‘conversation’ with anyone he was seriously dating and spending major time with because more than likely that person is going to be spending time with my child and possibly influencing him or her. Its as simple as that. If you don’t see why a parent would want to speak to someone so that they would feel more comfortable allowing that person to be around their child then I don’t know what to tell you.

    Besides, Mashonda’s words show more concern than bitterness. Mashonda don’t want Swiss back and Jennifer Aniston never had any kids by Brad.
