Swizz Beatz Pays Mashonda $334K AND is Alicia Keys a homewrecker?
Two weeks ago, Beatz told the NY Post, "I gave over what the judge was recommending to give. I gave Mashonda $700,000 upfront, because I thought $200,000 wasn't enough for what she wanted to do. I still get spit in my face for it." Beatz and Mashonda's divorce was finalized in early May. It has since been announced that his fiancee Alicia Keys is pregnant with the couple's first child.
"I'm super-excited," he told NY Daily News of getting engaged and expecting his third child. "People are calling me from Dubai and Japan. We haven't set a wedding date, but we will. We're just letting everything flow."
IS SHE A HOMEWRECKER?
My friends and I have talked about these two quite frequently over the past couple of weeks. It's 9 of us that talk literally every single day via email. When the news hit about Alicia Keys being pregnant, the emails started up again! I think half of us thought she was a home wrecker and the other half didn't. I don't think everyone had fully heard the story of Alicia and Swizz Beatz before hearing she was pregnant and he was still married. I, like most, only know what I read about BUT I don't think she is a home wrecker. He has been separated from his now ex-wife for a good minute now. Although, the details are kind of fuzzy about the question of when the two actually started seeing each other? Did she steal him from his ex wife? Is that even possible? Was he happy in the first place? Only they really know the answer. But I will say, how you get him will be how you lose him! (That's just a saying, but something to think about!) Also, I am more concerned about why they are getting married? Is it because she's pregnant? I am just asking!! I mean his divorce was just final and you are already engaged and having another baby!! Man!! Don't you want a break? Don't you want some breathing room? Maybe not. Maybe Alicia is his true love and he has no doubts? If he wasn't happy with his ex wife, what should he have done? Should he have stayed with her for the sake of their son? It's so many questions and not enough answers. We all have different ones, I am sure. Well, I am still a fan of her music. I kind of wish the cloud of "Homewrecker" wasn't hanging over her head during a time that should be so happy for her. In her industry, image matters. And even though, I am sure her true fans will remain....she has definitely took a hit. By the way, I love the song "Unthinkable".....the words are so true for me!
