‘There’s No Need To Fight What’s Not True’: Alicia Keys Still Isn’t Paying The Homewrecker Talk Any Mind
Alicia Keys has reportedly finally stopped dancing around those homewrecker allegations and address them head-on in her most recent interview with JET Magazine. Keys, who has been on a drama-filled roller coaster since 2010 when her new hubby, producer Swizz Beatz’s ex-wife Mashonda rang the alarm stating that the singer had been messing with her ex while they were still married and that Keys is actually the reason why their marriage fell apart in the first place. For a long time Alicia chose not to address the allegations but she has recently become a bit more vocal about them. She shared that she didn’t bother going back at Mashonda in the press because her allegations simply weren’t true. Check out some more of what she had to say in her recent JET interview.
Why she pays homewrecker allegations no mind
[They] were apart for some time before we ever got together…that doesn’t matter to those who take pleasure in trying to knock others down…there’s no need to fight what’s not true…
Why she and Swizz are a good match
I’d never met a person where I could be fully myself…Swizz and I live in each other’s shadow. So we can occupy the same space and there is nothing but equality. There’s something really powerful about that.
Though Mashonda, Swizz and Alicia have all seemed to move on and let go of past drama for the sake of the children involved, Alicia’s image has been tainted in the eyes of many of her female fans. It could be because so many find Mashonda to be a person whom they can relate to. She seemed to be a mom who was just trying to hold her family together when her fairytale got snatched from beneath her. But, I suppose it depends on how you look at the situation. The stories contradict each other so much that it is clear that someone isn’t being 100% truthful, but I guess no of us will ever know because we weren’t actually there.
