18 Celebrity Relationships That Started As Affairs
Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys
When Alicia started seeing this producer, he was already married with kids. The news got out when she reportedly threw a party for him in 2008, but in 2009, the scandal blew up when Swizz’s ex-wife, Mashonda, wrote an open letter to Alicia and called her a homewrecker. She said: “You know the role that you played and you know how you contributed to the ending of my marriage. You know that I asked you to step back and let me handle my family issues. Issues that you helped create.”
Alicia never addressed the letter, but in the same month that Swizz’s divorce with Mashonda was finalized, she and Swizz announced that they were engaged and expecting their first child. Things were understandably tense between Swizz’s ex and Alicia, but they eventually came to a truce. As of now, Swizz and Alicia are still together and they have two sons.
