Mashonda & son Kaseem Jr.
Mashonda sat down with “Sista 2 Sista Magazine” to dish it about the drama that’s obviously still brewing between her, Alicia Keys and ex-hubby Swizz Beats. The article will be featured in the magazines October issue. In the interview she addresses the affair as just that an affair that happened while she was in lovers bliss and puts A.Keys on blast for trying to get her step children to call her mom…
S2S: Were you guys dating other people before he got with Alicia? Were you guys separated?
Mashonda: We were married. Sleeping in the same bed and having sex every night while he was seeing Alicia. Okay? It was an affair. 100 percent. I don’t know why people want to change that rule so much. We had just had a kid, for crying out loud. Our child was 8 months. I found out about Alicia two days before my son turned 1. They had been doing their thing for months before that.
S2S: You said that Alicia wanted your baby to call her Umi. How do you know that she said that?
Mashonda: My son told me.
S2S: And you told her that is not going to happen?
Mashonda: Yeah. I sent her an email and asked her to please respect what I am to him and it’s not right for her to think that is okay. She never replied. She doesn’t reply to me. She has never given me that respect.
S2S: What does Swizz say?
Mashonda: He said okay, he would stop it. He wouldn’t let her do it.
S2S: That would be kind of confusing for the child.
Mashonda: Oh, it is. It is so unfair to the child. I have been in contact with the little girls mother (the woman in England who has Swizz?s baby). She’s a young girl. She’s a spiritual girl. She apologized to me. I don’t even judge her. I can’t. She’s totally different than the other one. This other one knew. Alicia knew about me 100 percent. Swizz introduced me at prior events. They were signed to the same record company. She knew. And I emailed her and asked her to stop doing what she was doing and she disregarded me. Just like she disregarded me when I asked her to not have my son thinking it was okay to call her mommy. You’re not his mom. You just met my son.
S2S: Umi is like mommy?
Mashonda: Umi means mommy in Arabic. I’m like no. And then after I spoke to the lady in London, she told me that she tried to get her daughter to call her umi as well.
I can’t help but believe this story especially since Swizz has told Access Hollywood in a recent interview that A. Keys calls him “Baba” which means father in Arabic. SMH! The drama doesn’t end for the two… Ladies how would you feel if your ex’s newbie wants your child to call her mommy? Has A.Keys lost her mind or is she trying to build a relationship as a step mom?
