Cairo, Egypt – All Swizz Beatz wanted to do was show his superstar wife Alicia Keys a little love. While on vacation in Egypt, the multi-platinum producer shared an Instagram photo paying homage to the queen in his life.
“Attention all MEN‼️” he wrote. “You shouldn’t be jealous or upset if you have a Queen that’s successful , Smarter or better than you! What you should do is thank the most high or step your game up!
“I can’t stand when I see brothers jealous of the lady they’re with that shit is very weak!!!!! #Realtalk Lady’s keep doing you.”
That’s when things took a negative turn. Some people on social media seized the opportunity to call Keys a “home wrecker” for starting up their love affair while Swizz was still married to Mashonda Tifrere.
Tifrere and Swizz separated in 2008 and their divorce was finalized in 2010, the same year Swizz married Keys.
In 2010, Tifrere addressed her ex-husband’s marriage to Keys in an Sister 2 Sister Magazine article.
“We were married,” she said. “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.”
But, it looks like it’s all water under the proverbial bridge. Swizz pointed out that Tifrere was actually on the same Egyptian vacation with them and their children.
“Haters would say home wrecker or I got stolen like some bank robbery to make them self feel good but eyeroll emoji],” he wrote in the comment section. “Meanwhile @mashondatifrere is on vacation with us as a blended fam living our best life and y’all still saltine like Nuts.
“How the hell ya’ll more upset than us. GET A LIFE!!!! Love from Cairo.”
Keys and Swizz have two children together. Swizz also has one with Tifrere and two others from previous relationships.
