According to Mashonda, Keys wanted their son to view the singer as her new mother.

"I sent her an email and asked her to please respect what I am to him and it's not right for her to think that is okay. She never replied. She doesn't reply to me. She has never given me that respect...It is so unfair to the child. I have been in contact with the little girl's mother (the woman in England who has Swizz's baby). She's a young girl. She's a spiritual girl. She apologized to me... I don't even judge her. I can't. She's totally different than the other one. This other one knew. Alicia knew about me 100 percent. Swizz introduced me at prior events. They were signed to the same record company. She knew. And I emailed her and asked her to stop doing what she was doing and she disregarded me. Just like she disregarded me when I asked her to not have my son thinking it was okay to call her 'umi.' You're not his umi. You just met my son...'Umi' means 'mommy' in Arabic. I'm like no. And then after I spoke to the lady in London, she told me that she tried to get her daughter to call her 'umi' as well...Like, if you want to be a stepmother, that's great. Be a stepmother. But don't think that it's okay to make a kid call you 'umi' or 'mommy.'"
