On how she found out about the Alicia/Swizz pregnancy:
I knew these things for a couple of months… I never talked to him about it though. It’s his life, but people talk. Nobody is nobody’s friend when it comes to stuff like this. There are people in their circles that talk and it gets back to me and I’m like ‘Wow, okay.’ I still feel like we should tell each other…No, I don’t care. I don’t give him the vibe that I care, so he wouldn’t feel obligated to tell me.
On whether or not she would attend their wedding if invited: (which is the dumbest question ever, by the way)
No. Not out of malice, but because weddings are sacred. It’s just not my place. The only reason I went to his birthday party was because he invited me and I did that for myself. I needed to see them together for it to transfer. And I was like ‘Wow, this is real.’ We were still totally married…We had a divorce that was nowhere near final, but I just needed to see them in action for it to be real to me, and it was definitely real. You have all these different types of steps that you have to set up for yourself until you get to that place where you are free. And I will tell you, after I got divorced maybe three weeks later I woke up and felt a weight removed. It was the first time I’d ever felt mentally free. And I sent him an email wishing him all the best in the world.
On her thoughts about Alicia’s music/being a fan:
I believed her before.
I don’t make it an effort to listen. I don’t make it an effort not to listen. I still like her songs. She’s head over heels in love and I get it. Every woman deserves to feel that, not at the expense of another woman though. But I understand why some of the decisions were made on her part, because her heart was so in it. I can’t fight that [and] I can’t fight her because she’s a household name. People are always going to love her for her music, as they should. She makes great music, but no one is really ever going to understand what happened in this house. Bottom line, the rule is, if you’re messing with somebody, you don’t know they’re married, and you found out they’re married if you come into any contact with that wife, leave it alone… respect the woman, respect the wife. Like I said before, it was an ego thing for me. I’m being fucking disrespected, nobody respects me, this is my husband, this is my family, this girl thinks she can just do anything she thinks she wants to. And that’s what I dealt with for a while, until I gave up. ?
It was rumored back in January that engaged couple Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz were house hunting with Lenny Kravitz’s famously fabulous Soho loft at the top of their list. And it looks like the couple just copped the $14 mill spot.What’s so stunning about Lenny Kravitz’ old place you ask? Well according to the Real Estate Stalker:
“This spectacular duplex penthouse loft with 6,000 square feet of interior space and 3,000 square feet of outdoor space has been newly redesigned and renovated with no expense spared to create the most luxurious and important property downtown…A suspended glass staircase leads to the 2nd level which features the Master Bedroom w/ a sitting area, a huge Master Bathroom and 3 additional bedrooms each with their own bath. Another glass staircase leads to an enormous roof deck w/ a built-in barbecue….”
