However, according to them, they’ve never had an argument during their 11-year marriage.

Then there was the news that certain R&B singers were down bad. Crystal Smith, who was married to singer Ne-Yo, blasted the hitmaker on social media in July for “8 years of lies and deception.” Shortly after, she filed for divorce from the “So Sick” singer. Sadly, singer Miguel’s marriage to his longtime lover Nazanin Mandi didn’t make it either. According to TMZ, Mandi is moving on from their marriage for the second time after they recently reconciled from a previous separation.
Fans were also rocked recently with the news that Tia Mowry has filed for divorce from Cory Hardrict. The actors met during the filming of Hollywood Horror and later married in 2008. However, two children and 14 years of love and marriage could not withstand the brutal sting of divorce. On October 4th, the Sister, Sister actress candidly expressed on Instagram that although the decision was not “easy, and not without sadness,” they are parting ways.
But with all that is happening in Hollywood marriages, there are still glimmers of hope. Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, married for 12 years, stopped by the Million Dollaz Worth of Game Podcast to share some relationship gems. According to the couple, they have never had an argument, so much so that their children “don’t even know what it means” to argue. In addition, they collectively share that there is no need to argue. “We just agree that we gotta communicate,” said Swizz Beatz.
