Keys always recalls some advice Oprah Winfrey told her for many years: Alicia and Swizz are now extremely happy with their baby boy Egypt, who was named after the African country since that is where Alicia visited years ago when she wanted to relieve the pressures of success and fame.
And Mashonda has always maintained that Swizz is a great father to all 4 of his kids. Up until about a month ago I thought I was madly in love ....
The union between Alicia and Swizz exploded in the media when Tifrere posted a letter online saying that Alicia had 'assisted in destroying a family,' and did a series of 'tell-all' interviews.
Swizz and Tifrere's divorce was finalised in May 2010 and Alicia and Swizz announced engagement less than a month later.
Bloggers went wild, accusing Alicia of being a home-wrecker and calling her names. After months of aggravation Alicia remained silent but now, she says, she is finally at peace with Tifrere, who recently posted thanks for her 'beautiful blended family' and accepted Alicia as a 'partner' in caring for her son.
Things are really good now,' said Alicia who also revealed that her love with Dean is 'intoxicating and whole'.
Alicia, who became engaged to Swizz 1 month after he and Mashonda's divorce was final, continues with her side of the story saying: Meanwhile, Swizz also conceived another child with a British singer Jahna Sebastian while married to Mashonda, which he wholly admits.
On why she didn't speak on this matter until now, Ms.
Swizz has another child with British singer Jahna Sebastian, who was conceived while he was still married to Tifrere.'Kasseem is very present in his children's lives.
I wouldn't be able to love him otherwise,' said the 14-time Grammy winner'We are doing what is best for the children,' she added.
The couple, who filed for divorce, have a two-and-a-half-year-old son together.
The following letter from Mashonda was issued in response to Keys’ tweet on Friday night: “Having a heated debate n the studio.
However, a few hours later I was advised that I should check @aliciakeys twit page. I feel our issues are a lot more serious than a website conversation.
