Swizz Beatz’ marriage to singer Alicia Keys has been no doubt controversial.
Reports surfaced in 2009 that he cheated on his wife Mashonda with the R&B songstress, a claim he says is untrue considering the pair was separated.
Mashonda tells a different story however and revealed in an interview with VIBE that she felt “disrespected” by his affair with Keys.
“Bottom line, the rule is, if you’re messing with somebody, you don’t know they’re married, and you found out they’re married if you come into any contact with that wife, leave it alone… respect the woman, respect the wife. Like I said before, it was an ego thing for me. I’m being Fawking disrespected, nobody respects me, this is my husband, this is my family, this girl thinks she can just do anything she thinks she wants to. And that’s what I dealt with for a while, until I gave up.”
Since then, Keys and Beatz have welcomed a new baby and wed over the summer.
