In what would seem like a slightly awkward scenario, producer Swizz Beatz seemed to have pulled of a P. Diddy move by going on vacation with his wife Alicia Keys and ex-wife Mashonda Tifrere … leaving the bad blood between them in the past.
Their kids Egypt and Kasseem Dean Jr. also soaked up some sun on Nikki beach!
If you can remember, Swizz and Mashonda, 35, endured a bitter breakup after news of Beatz shacking up with the Grammy award-winning superstar, who was forced to defend herself from ‘homewrecker’ claims, made headlines a few years ago.
But it appears all has been forgiven, as the families was spotted having a luxurious holiday in St. Barts. Mashonda stared into the distance rather stiffly as her former husband plant smooches on Alicia, before getting somewhat friskier.
The union between Alicia and Swizz exploded in the public eye when Mashonda 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.
In May 2011, after being branded a ‘homewrecker’ Alicia told Essence magazine: ‘We didn’t start seeing each other until months after they had separated,’ she said.
Keys revealed to Global Grind: ‘I’m always ready and willing to sit with the co-parents of my son, that’s not even a question. ‘There isn’t one doubt in my mind that one day it will all come together the way it’s supposed to. We are all a work in progress.’
