Mashonda Tifrere and Alicia Keys sure have come a loooooooong way!
After allegations of cheating and Lady Keys being labeled a mistress and homewrecker at the start of her relationship with music producer Swizz Beatz, it appears that the women have come out on the other side if it. In fact, they actually get along quite well these days, even spending holidays and family time with one another!
In her upcoming book, Blend: The Secret to Co-Parenting and Creating a Balanced Family, Tifrere is sharing insights into her co-parenting journey with the famous couple.
“Six years ago, my [then] 5-year-old son asked me why his father and I didn’t like each other anymore. I realized that he was reacting to our lack of communication and unity as parents. It was a wake-up call,” the artist and singer, 40, said to PEOPLE in an exclusive statement for the book’s cover reveal.
“Co-parenting and blending is a universal topic and many don’t know where to begin,” Tifrere added. “This book will serve as the inspiration and blueprint that is needed to raise emotionally and mentally healthy children.”
“With a dedicated chapter for fathers written by Swizz and a heartfelt foreword penned by Alicia, the three of us are raising our voices to help generations of families worldwide,” Tifrere said. “I’m certain that the book will become a toolbox for mindful parents all over the world.”
WOW! *standing ovation*
