Lies… it was all a pack of lies!!! Or at least that’s what Alicia Keys wants us to believe. The philanthropic singer/producer and actress finally addresses the whole messy homewrecking situation in her June 2011 ESSENCE magazine cover story.
Was the situation messy? Undoubtedly. But Keys denies she did anything wrong. “Everything was in order,” she says firmly. “We didn’t start seeing each other until after they had been separated for months.” Keys points out that up until now we’ve heard only one side of this three-sided story. “I was very aware of all the false things that were being said about me,” she says measuring each word. “And it definitely hurt. But I was sure that if I engaged, it would become a back-and-forth like some sort of sick entertainment, which goes against everything I believe in and only would have made things worse. Of course, people will believe what they want to believe. But I know the truth will shine through.”
