Singer Alicia Keys has been celebrating the release of her self-titled seventh album Alicia, but with success comes a dash of controversy and it seems as if it’s her time in the spotlight. The singer has successfully maintained a career in the industry, but it hasn’t been without controversy. Now, fellow singer Jaguar Wright is airing out some qualms about how the singer has moved over the years.
Past history to be discussed, Keys lately has been doing her part to help others during the coronavirus pandemic and beyond.
Alicia Keys performed at the NFL’s Kickoff event for 2020, as it restarts during the pandemic and was on hand to announce a new $1 billion-dollar endowment — a fund that she conceived, according to Billboard.
“We are already seeing the blatant injustices that are going on around us,” Keys says. “As an artist, I’m always thinking about how can I use my platform to further racial equity. This fund is one of the answers and our goal is to empower Black America through investing in Black businesses, Black investors, institutions, entrepreneurs, schools and banks in a way to create sustainable solutions.”
“Entanglement” has seemed to come to represent relationships that have dealt with affairs, breakups and then getting back together – and some fans also started to point out the entertainment industry is probably full of “entanglements.” The first example that came to mind was music artists Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz.
The two met when they were younger in the 90’s and initially didn’t hit it off, until Alicia Keys found herself “entangled” with Swizz Beatz – later on when he was already married. Swizz, of Ruff Ryders fame, had married Mashonda Tifrere, whom had also just had a child with Beatz during the time he and Keys reconnected.
In 2009, Mashonda, a singer herself with music produced by her husband Swizz Beatz, took to Twitter and sent Alicia Keys an open letter, confirming for the world that the “Superwoman” singer had broken up her marriage that included a newborn child.
“My concern with [Alicia Keys] 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,” she wrote, according to Vibe. “I feel that after [one] and a half years of you hiding this affair and acting like it [doesn’t] exist, that now is the time to confront it, since you talk so openly about it now… You have no idea how much pain I was caused because of this affair.”
Though now, the family seems to have found a way to co-exist, the Internet doesn’t forget. The whole ordeal has resurfaced because of similarities to the Will and Jada situation, and pop culture’s long memory. It doesn’t help that the blended family has also written a book about it and Keys released a song, “Blended Family,” about the whole ordeal.
Once again, these allegations are resurfacing, among others, after singer Jaguar Wright unloaded during a live stream about Alicia Keys and her apparent issues with her, including revisiting old slander about Keys’ alleged sexuality.
Starting off the stream with a bang, Wright called her fellow singer a “goofy a** b***h” who ran around stealing other people’s husbands – something that has already been discussed and discarded by Keys and the family themselves. However, Wright goes on to allege even more personal, inside knowledge about Keys – because she’s crossed swords with her personally.
Wright then details a mutual acquaintance that they both dated named Antonio Gordon, who no doubt has no idea his name is being dragged into this currently. Wright claims that they both dated Gordon, until Gordon found Keys in the act of being unfaithful. “He found you [explicit] somebody else when you was supposed to be his girlfriend.”
“He was so afraid to get involved with another artist because of you,” she says to Keys. Despite the fact that Jaguar alleges keys sleeping with a man, she also claims that Keys was sleeping with men to mask her true sexuality for the industry.
In the end, Wright seems ready to be physical over her qualms with Keys – even telling her to come to Texas, where she apparently lives.
“I’ll be right there, dressed very much like I’m just right now in my workout clothes,” she said during the stream, which she was doing while driving. “You wanna know why? Because I’ll be comin to work your MF’ a– out b—h.”
