R&B singer, and Swizz Beatz-ex, Mashonda recently decided to keep her ex-husbands last name (Dean) despite going through a huge public divorce with him earlier this year. She says she will change her name again when she remarries. "I hate that when [Swizz and Alicia Keys are] doing something I always come up. I can't wait for the day when we're both in our own worlds. I'm a separate person and just want my own identity…I do [keep our name]. I kept my last name for my son's sake, until I remarry. There's no need to rush to change it… that just complicates things for my son. That would be so petty of me. The only thing that could change [my last name] is a really good man."
