It seems that past hostilities have been forgotten as singer Alicia Keys and her husband Swizz Beatz kissed on the beach like newlyweds.
In a slightly awkward scenario, the couple got amorous as they holidayed with none other than the producer's former wife Mashonda Tifrere.

Swizz and Mashonda endured a bitter split as she reeled from the news of her husband moving onto the Grammy award-winning superstar, who was forced to defend herself from 'homewrecker' claims.

But it seems that all has been forgiven, as the families came together for a luxurious holiday in St. Barts.
Singer and songwriter Mashonda Tifrere, 35, stared into the distance rather stiffly as her former husband got rather amorous with Alicia on the busy beach, kissing her on the mouth before getting somewhat friskier.
Music producer Swizz - real name Kasseem Dean - was previously married to the singer whom he has a son, Kasseem Dean Jnr, seven.
The union between Alicia and Swizz exploded in the public eye when Mashonda posted a letter online saying that Alicia had 'assisted in destroying a family,' and did a series of 'tell-all' interviews.
Swizz and Tifrere's divorce was finalised in May 2010 and Alicia and Swizz announced engagement less than a month later.
In May 2011, after being branded a 'homewrecker' Alicia told Essence magazine: 'We didn't start seeing each other until months after they had separated,' she said.
'I was aware of all the false things that were being said about me it definitely hurt,'.
However since then Mashonda has moved on and predicted that the family would one day come together for the sake of the children.
She told Global Grind: 'They are normal people who have been blessed with talents and great opportunities.
'I’m always ready and willing to sit with the co-parents of my son, that’s not even a question.
'There isn’t one doubt in my mind that one day it will all come together the way it’s supposed to. We are all a work in progress.'

Alicia married Swizz, real name Kasseem Dean, in July 2010 in Corsica while she was six months pregnant with son Egypt.
Meanwhile Alicia displayed her toned figure and flawless skin in her revealing ensemble, while she made sure to be sun-safe - donning a large off-white fedora with black ribbon detail that shaded her make-up-free face from the harsh rays.
Her little man was cute as a button with his gorgeous curly locks, while he was dressed in camouflage board shorts and a red rash vest featuring black short sleeves.

The three-year-old certainly appeared to be having a ball - no pun intended - as he rallied with his famous mom on the pristine packed beach.
Swizz, was later seen giving his wife a sweet piggyback ride as they headed back to their hotel later that day.
Taking to Instagram later that day, the star posted a fun family photo, presumably taken by his wife, of him attempting a headstand on the beach flanked by his two sons, who were expertly displaying their skills.

Joining him and the couple's son Egypt was his older son Kasseem Dean Jr from a prior relationship, who was also clad in camouflage trunks.
'I almost got it:) #dadlife#deanboys #thisislife Kj & EG teaching me Lmao the things you do to make your kids happy SMH,' he captioned the image.
He followed it up a little while later with another post as he relaxed poolside at the family's villa, looking off into the distance with a drink in his hand, the picturesque ocean the perfect backdrop.
'Always take time out for you! People will use and run you down if you let them! #stayfocused #BX,' he wrote.
