Celebrity Mistresses: The Good, The Bad, and The Trifling
While Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz make a cute couple, the road to cute and married coupledom started off rough. Especially since the record producer was still married to singer Mashonda when they began their relationship. Mashonda claims Beatz (aka Kaseem Dean) confessed about their relationship on Mother’s Day 2008 (ouch!), but she had already known about the affair for six months. She went VERY public about Dean’s cheating ways, writing Twitter letters and doing interviews about it and what not, saying she asked Alicia to back off so she and Dean could work things out. However, Alicia never responded to her, and that was that. A.Keys and Swizzy have made their love “thang” happen even with all the shade: they’re married and have an adorable son together, Egypt. Dean’s fourth.
