So, first, let me confess that I would want to write this story about our new Queen, Camilla but because of how sensitive everyone is about the story and how I know people adore the late Diana, I would use Alicia Keys’s story instead.
Secondly, let’s all agree that when it comes to celebrities, no one knows the full story… we all just feed off what we hear here and there, so therefore, this chat is based on allegedly. Don’t quote me dears!!!
Down to the gist, Alicia Keys is married to Swizz now for over one decade, and every time they pop up as a love icon, the comments are always on how Alicia was a side chic who “stole” another woman’s man.
Of course, Swizz was married before he met Alicia and got divorced almost about the time his relationship with Alicia became public knowledge.
However, he and Alicia had always defended themselves many times that they were “single when they met. That is, Swizz was already separated from his wife. But no one believes them.
Just as we don’t believe Maria of BBNaija, Stella Damasus, and many other women that fell in love with a man who was formerly married.
Now, my question is, should women not date separated men? – Genuine question. If a man says he’s separated, should that be a red flag? Should we be asking for divorce certificates?
We know that some men lie about their marriage situation just to get a woman, but this isn’t about the ones who lie, this is about the ones who are truly separated privately or publicly and want to move on.
It’s imperative to ask this question because when we unfairly/fairly hammer down these women, are we saying that except if a man is fully divorced, they shouldn’t be dated?
Please help with answers so that we can all agree maybe for once that these women who genuinely are willing to let a man who’s failed in love, love again are the villain or the victim🤷🏼♀️
