Alicia Keys wasn’t very fond of her husband, Swizz Beatz, when they first met. Apparently, the music producer didn’t make much of a first impression on her. During her exclusive interview with Marie Claire UK she tells the magazine, “Honestly, I didn’t really like him that much. I thought he was too ostentatious.”
“Swizz will have the fastest car, the biggest jewelry, the loudest jacket; everything with him is really over the top. I used to see him and think, ‘He is so annoying,'” Keys adds.
Too bad for Swizz’s ex-wife Mashonda Tifrere it didn’t stay that way. Tifrere has accused Keys, in the past, of contributing to the demise of her marriage.
