Alicia Keys & Her Husband Vacation With His Ex-Wife Despite Bitter Feud

Alicia KeysWow. 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?

I would like to clarify that only someone who is IN the marriage can break up the marriage.
I've been married for 20 years and am really tired of people blaming others for what goes on in their own life. Take responsibility people! If it's not working, change it so it does.

It is so wonderful to know that someone in the world has some common sense and a brain. Only the people IN the marriage can break it

First off Swizz is not the father of Mashonda's CHILDREN. There is only ONE child between them. As for the letter that Mashonda wrote, she really shouldn't have been spying on what Alicia was writing since her and Swizz were separated. It wasn't any of her business and she knew by then they were seeing each other. The way I look at this gathering is for Mashonda to get more attention even if it makes her look foolish. Alicia is a very intelligent woman, I just wish she would stop and think before catering to other people's wants and needs.

Separated and divorced is two different things. Alicia keys should have stepped back and waited until the divorce was finalized and the ink was dry. Karma is real........
