Alicia Keys and Mashonda are apparently on the same page now when it comes to their blended family.

For years, the ex-wife of producer Swizz Beatz has referred to his current wife as a home wrecker, and accused Keys of carrying on an affair with him while they were still married.

At one point in 2009, Mashonda went on a tweet-storm against Keys, writing:

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… 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.

Well, the two have since worked things out.

In 2014, Mashonda and her son with Swizz, Kasseem David Dean, Jr., joined Swizz and Alicia (married since 2010) on vacation in St. Barts, along with the couple’s son Egypt Daoud.

Swizz also has a son Prince Nasir with Nicole Levy, a daughter Nicole with British singer Zhanna Andrianova, and has since had a second son with Keys, Genesis Ali Dean.

Tonight, Keys will deliver a new song that celebrates the journey toward their current family dynamic.

On Thursday, Keys announced via Twitter that her new song, “Blended Family (What You Do For Love)” featuring A$AP Rocky will be “available everywhere at midnight.” The tweet includes a link to her website, which features a note from the singer that suggests a mending of fences with Mashonda was part of the song’s inspiration:


I’m so excited for you to hear this song. It means so much to me and our whole family. The understanding, compassion and support we’ve found is a powerful testament to the healing that comes when we choose love. Especially for the kids… the most important part of our lives. Celebrating Mashonda for our commitment to each other with support and true growth.

    I am so glad our destiny is not predicated on failed relationships with mankind. Have you all read the stories in the Bible? King David and Basheba were King Salomon parents, God deals with broken and contrite hearts. He cast our sins into the sea of forgetfulness, He paid for the penalty of our sins we did unto Him. His love for us was was the ultimate Price. Forgiveness is Priceless.

      Spell check: King Solomon and his mother’s name is Bathsheba. Just wanted correct my misspelled words. But seriously cheating is merely symptoms that the marriage is in trouble, that is why some marriages can survive infidelity, not a deal breaker. When someone leaves your life for whatever reason it may be, don’t be like Jonah waiting on top of a hill waiting for their destruction because can God can change His mind, like He did in the book of Jonah. Not only that God says He will have mercy on whoever He chooses to. Repentance changes the Mind of God. Get off the judgement seat and trade it for mercy seat. Just saying 😃

    Im happy for them and pray that the real reason is for the kids, regardless of what happen they needed to work together for the kids not saying what Alicia & Swiss did was wrong but it is what it is its time to move on

    It’s really not up to the public to forgive this sin. Did she ask God and the family she infiltrated for forgiveness? Then did she “turn from her wickedness”? That’s what you should be stating.

    • I don’t think the writer of the article means forgive in the literal sense. I think he/she is exploring whether fthe public still sees the affair as a big stain on Keyes’ otherwise positive image.
