Since getting together, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz have faced some controversy surrounding their relationship—particularly from claims that Alicia broke up Swizz's relationship with singer and Love & Hip Hop star Mashonda.
In a revealing cover story with JET Magazine, Keys opens up about the situation, and explains the truth behind all the rumors.
Here's a quote from Alicia Keys' interview with JET:
"[They] were apart for some time before we ever got together…that doesn't matter to those who take pleasure in trying to knock others down…there's no need to fight what's not true…I'd never met a person where I could be fully myself…Swizz and I live in each other's shadow. So we can occupy the same space and there is nothing but equality. There's something really powerful about that."
