Mashonda, ex-wife of Swizz Beatz, opens up in the October issue of Sister 2 Sister Magazine. The singer speaks candidly on  her marriage to Beatz and being disregarded by Alicia Keys. Mashonda also tells the magazine how Alicia Keys wanted  her son to call her mommy. Read the interview below.

On Alicia Asking Kasseem Jr. to call her ‘Mommy’:

S2S: You said that Alicia wanted your baby to call her “mommy”. 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 “umi.” You’re not his umi. 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.

S2S: She’s met the lady in London?
Mashonda: Yes. I’m glad she’s having her own child now because now she will have someone to call her “umi”.

S2S: Wow.
Mashonda: Like, if you want to be a stepmother, that’s great. Be a stepmother. But don’t think that it’s okay to make a kid call you “umi” or “mommy.”

On why she continues to talk about this if she moved on

Mashonda: People ask me why am I still talking about this and why don’t I just leave it alone. I’m like, this is going to help somebody. My story is a universal thing. This is not just something that only happened to me: This happens to women every day. Mine was just ugly. If I can help the next woman get through and be positive, then I’m going to talk about it.

S2S: Were you guys dating other people before he got with Alicia? Were you guys separated?

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.

  1. Wow! This is some mess! I’m glad that Mashonda is putting those two low lifes on blast.

  2. My heart went out to you after reading your story on sister to sister. I used to like alicia keys but now don’t. U should have told her to find her own damn man. She’s a home recker for sure, u will hear about her divorce as well. What goes around comes back. He will leave her for somebody else just like he did u. So don’t trip u are a beautiful woman and deserve better. Don’t let this bad experiece stop u from moving on. I’m sure u will find someone that will truly love u and will never leave. Aint no man promised to us all we can do as woman is handle our buisness and hold our own down. God bless u!

  3. Oh! another thing u should have tore his/their pockets up! U deserve alot more than what was said in sister to sister. He owe u way more, and u should have took her to court while they were dating just like that one woman did with Fantasia. She was dating somebody elses husband as well. After that Fantasia left that mans husband alone. U should have did the same took her ass to court and sued her. She got plenty to pay off. Oh..and live to the fullest with ur son off that money don’t be ashamed. Lots of women wish they did get alamony and child support. So have fun and enjoy your life off his/her expenses. I would.

  4. They do a attractive Afghan No1), The Real Seed Company (tons of interesting Indian stuf), Ace Seed products (pakistan), World of
    Seeds, (both have attractive Hindu Kush) – you have to read
    through the descriptions.
