Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz go on vacation with his ex wife

If it works for Kimora, her men Djimon & Tim, Russell Simmons and all the can also work for Swizz Beatz and his blended family.  Alicia Keys, her husband Swizz, and their kids Egypt and Kasseem are all on family vacay in St. Barts....with Swizz's ex-wife Mashonda Tifrere.

The Deans took a page out of the Simmons' annual St. Barts vacay book and made the trip they are curently on a bundle of big blended family fun.

Alicia & Swizz were spotted at Nikki Beach in St. Barts today sneaking a mini-makeout session on the beach beds while the kiddies played in the sand.   But also on that beach bed...was Swizzy's ex-wife Mashonda!  Hey, Alicia is his wife it's to be expected, right?

Mashonda is also on the vacay since she and Swizz share little Kasseem.  Gotta give it to them...they know how to make co-parenting trump all things.  And the trio seem to have left the cheating and mistress "situation" in the past.  Everybody appears to be chummy chummy now...
