When the world first learned that Swizz Beatz was divorcing his wife, Mashonda Tifrere, news also leaked that the 35-year-old hip hop producer fathered a child with someone else during their six-year marriage. It turns out the child’s mother is Jahna Sebastian, a London-based singer and producer. During a recent interview with Mara The Hip Hop Socialite, Jahna opened up about co-parenting her daughter, Nicole, with Swizz and why she kept the birth of her child a secret for so long.
While having a child outside out one’s marriage seems like the ultimate betrayal, Jahna insists that her child was not the reason for Swizz and Mashonda’s divorce because she refrained from reaching out until she learned that they were splitting up.
“I did not want the news about my pregnancy and my daughter’s birth to become the reason of his divorce [from Mashonda],” Jahna explained. It wasn’t, because I kept it secret from most people and from the media, although I mentioned the name in my immigration case during that time when I was asked but demanded confidentiality from them.”
“On top of that I didn’t even want to have anything with a married man,” she added. “But I had to put my pride aside to give my child a chance to have a relationship with her father, however it had to happen at the right time. I only reached out with official paperwork after I have found out that the divorce has already been filed for totally different reasons that had nothing to do with my child and I.”
Jahna also discussed what a difficult time she had prior to revealing that Swizz fathered her daughter.
“I wanted to save my daughter from that kind of negativity, because children are innocent. During those two years until I reached out I had to deal with everything on my own without any child support and I was not entitled to any welfare at all either, those were hard times. I have never been on welfare anyway.”
“Having a child in the UK does not give you the right to stay here or get British passport, you have to have other valid reasons to stay and prove that you can also contribute to the community, which I have done. If I didn’t fight for my immigration case at that time, Nicole would have also been deported to Russia. However, at least my daughter has nothing to do with the divorce and everybody was happy to find out about her.”
Now that Swizz knows about Nicole, Jahna says that he has been a good father, seeing their daughter approximately 3-4 times per year.
“Three to four times a year on average. I have always supported their relationship. That was the initial reason I have reached out in the first place because a child deserves a chance to have a relationship with the father.”
“I have always supported their relationship. That was the initial reason I have reached out in the first place because a child deserves a chance to have a relationship with the father.”
Surprisingly, Jahna says she also has a relationship with Swizz’s ex-wife, Mashonda.
“We keep in touch. It’s all good.”

Chris Brown has pulled stunts in his relationship with Karrueche Tran that most would deem unforgivable—like leaving her for his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Rihanna. Yet somehow, someway, he always finds his way back to the fashionista; and she always finds it in her heart to take him back. Though some would consider her love for Chris to be downright foolish, back in October BlogXilla expressed in a post for Global Grind that Karrueche’s love for Chris is simply unconditional.
“Karrueche uploaded a picture of her and Chris kissing, with the caption “always and forever,” Xilla wrote. “I immediately thought: I want a woman to love me like Karrueche loves Chris Brown. A woman to love me regardless of the dumb sh** I do!”
In a recent interview with Karrueche, Xilla mentioned that post, which prompted Karrueche to discuss her undying love for Chris and explain how people could never understand their relationship from the outside looking in.
“It’s different,” explained Karrueche. “And its something that a lot of people won’t and will never understand, which is why I get so much flack and hate because you know looking from the outside in it looks messy. Nobody knows the real story, nobody knows what I went through so.”
She also addressed how much people criticize her for the decisions she makes.
“It’s kind of hard and it’s annoying,” she began. “These people just say whatever they want. Anything I do its like, ‘Oh, you couldn’t launch you’re line you’re a dumb b***, you’re wack’, just stupid stuff. Like you can’t even say my name or spell my name, first of all. I just try my best to ignore it and look on the positive side. At the end of the day, they don’t know who I am and they’re judging me based off their opinions, so I just try and stay on the positive side.”

Earlier today, we told you about radio host DJ Envy coming clean over the air about his relationship with “Love & Hip Hop” star Erica Mena. His confession appeared to be in response to Erica’s internet radio interview from last week, where she confessed to sleeping with the married DJ, justified it by saying he didn’t act like a “proud married man” and revealed that she would be dropping a tell-all book about the affair. Now today, in an interview that appears to be in response to Envy’s confession, the walking, talking, breathing contradiction told Vibe Vixen that Envy failed to inform her that he was married.
“DJ Envy’s definitely talking about me, but I’m one of many. I was under the assumption that he had kids but wasn’t actually married. I found out around the time that I started filming “Love & Hip Hop”. After I found out, I was still in shock because we were together for so long. I didn’t understand how he could take a vow as serious as marriage and take on a whole other relationship. It’s sad that now he’s taking all these shots saying I’m a liar and I’m pathetic, when he deceived me. It’s not fair to paint me out as a liar when he was leading a double life for many years. He’s never publicly come out with his wife until now because he’s ashamed of her. It’s no secret.”
She went on to claim that her upcoming book is not a tell-all about the DJ, but a story of her life.
“For me, I never spoke about it [the affair] because it was embarrassing as a woman. Of course, now I explain it in my book. I want to be clear: My book is not a tell-all. It’s just a book about my life and Envy is apart of my life.”
She also posted a public message to Envy’s wife on her Twitter page
Meanwhile Envy expressed via his Twitter page that nothing is going to come between him and his wife, not even Erica’s book.
It looks like this back and forth thing between Envy and Erica may go on for awhile.
It’s difficult to believe Erica’s claim that she didn’t know Envy was married considering how unapologetic and bold she came off during last week’s interview, but then again, it wouldn’t be the first time someone lied about their marital status.

Erica Mena Justifies Her Affair With Married Radio Host DJ Envy By Saying, ‘He Wasn’t A Proud Married Man’
Since her 2012 debut on VH1′s “Love & Hip Hop”, the media world has been buzzing with gossip bits that Erica Mena had been engaged in an affair with very married Power 105.1 Breakfast Club host, DJ Envy. The troubled reality star unremorsefully confirmed the affair and admitted to only having ended it because of her relationship with co-star Rich Dollaz in an interview with I Am Super Gorge.
“I just wanna clear something up. I know that people have been calling me a homewrecker or whatever. I’m just gonna keep it real simple and say this, you can’t break a home that’s already broken. So, I mean at the end of the day, whatever happened with him and his marriage definitely has nothing to do with me… He’s been married for 18 years. He never once acted married until he found out that I was engaged. He definitely wasn’t a proud married man.”
She went on to say that anyone who’s interested in learning the dirty details of her affair with Envy can get the scoop in her new tell-all book, Underneath It All, which is scheduled to be released in April.
“I definitely think in time people will kind of get a better understanding of where I’m coming from because my book will be explaining it all. It drops in April. So you guys get to get the full-on story about me and this whole DJ Envy situation. [In the book] I give actual dates and how everything went about. You guys will also get the scoop on the fact that I kind of left that situation alone because I wanted to be with Rich.”
A delusional Erica took to her Twitter page this morning to offer fans the opportunity to select the cover art of her tell-all book.
“Help Pick The Cover To My New Book
#UnderneathITAll By Me Coming This April ! @lffpublishing @michelefletcher VOTE!” she tweeted.
During the interview, she also danced around questions regarding her “pregnancy”, seemingly using the rumor as a ploy for reunion show ratings.
“Right before the reunion airs, I’ll tell you guys the full honest truth.I would rather keep people in suspense a little bit more, but you guys will be surprised at the final answer. I’m real excited.”
Considering that she was photographed throwing back a bottle of Patron on the same night that those alleged pregnancy photos surfaced, I doubt she’s pregnant. At least I hope she’s not.

That’s Not What I Heard: Christina Milian Says Last Time She Checked Chris Brown And Karrueche Are Still A Couple
There’s something about seeing a woman ride for her homegirl that makes me smile deep down inside because loyalty is certainly difficult to find these days. If you frequent blogs or listen to any Hip Hop radio stations, you’re probably somewhat familiar with the Chris Brown-Rihanna-Karrueche Tran love triangle. Back in October Chris released a video expressing how much of a dilemma he was in because he loved two women. The video was preceded by a statement released by Brown which confirmed he was ending his relationship with Tran because he didn’t want his “friendship” with Rihanna to hurt her. Since then, Brown has been spotted with and rumored to still be seeing both women.
As you may know, singer and actress Christina Milian is good friends with Karrueche. During her recent visit to The Wendy Show, she was hit with a barrage of questions regarding Chris and Karrueche’s breakup and was even asked if Chris and Rih Rih will be having a secret wedding in Barbados on Christmas and whether or not Karrueche was Chris’s sidepiece. Here is what she had to say about it.
“From what I’ve always known, she’s his girlfriend and that is where it lies for me. I know, I see everything in the media and everything. I really don’t get into the details of it. But, I think everyone has their own life and how they deal with things. They have the right to handle it how they want. So, yeah she’s a sweetheart. I will tell you that. She’s a sweetheart and I think they make a great couple.”
Loving how it seems like regardless of how Christina personally feels about Chris and Karrueche’s relationship, she is going to cover her friend and not speak negatively to media outlets. Hopefully my girl Jen from “Basketball Wives” caught that lesson. I also hope that as a real friend Christina is being honest with Karrueche behind closed doors and telling her that she deserves better than what Chris is dishing out right now.
