Wow. Some men have all the luck! Alicia Keys and her husband, Swizz Beatz, and his ex-wife, Mashonda Tifrere, were spotted vacationing together with all of their kids in St. Bart's. I guess this wouldn't be SO strange -- plenty of exes go on to be friends and even in some instances vacation together -- except that Mashonda once hated Alicia so much that she wrote an open letter accusing her of being a homewrecker and breaking up her marriage.
Back in 2009, Mashonda blasted Alicia in an open letter, accusing her of having an affair with her husband just after she had their last child. She wrote:
My concern with AK is no longer the fact that she assisted in destroying a family but that she has the audacity to make these selfish comments about love and wanting to be with someone, even after knowing their situation. How is this the same Superwoman that I sang out loud with in my truck? I ask myself sometimes. If you are reading this Alicia, let me start by saying, you know what you did. You know the role 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 to create.
Alicia would later deny the allegations, saying that she and Swizz only hooked up after he and his wife separated. Uh-huh.
But all seems to have been forgiven -- or at least momentarily put aside for the sake of some fun in the sun with the kiddos -- as the unlikely trio vacationed together. Swizz and Alicia even made out with Mashonda only inches away from her. Yikes!
We've seen this type of thing before. Russell and Kimora Lee Simmons vacationed together with his new, much younger, girlfriend. And sometimes you even catch Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes at the same kids' event. But I can't see those two vacationing together. If they ever do, then hell has certainly frozen over.
I can't say this is my kind of thing, but if Mashonda is able to watch the father of her children make out with his new wife, the one she says broke up her marriage -- well, all the more power to her, I guess. Swizz certainly has a way with women!
Could you ever vacation with your ex and his new wife if she broke up your marriage?
