According to the NY Post’s Page Six, the taxman once again cometh for music producer Swizz Beatz. Why is he having trouble paying his taxes? Is this the reason why he knocked up Alicia Keys so she could pay his taxes for him?
Swizz Beatz has again been hit by the tax man. According to public records, the fiancé of Alicia Keys — who’s pregnant with Beatz’s child — was slapped with an IRS lien of $652,727 on June 3 for unpaid 2008 income tax. The music producer, real name Kasseem Dean, has had a string of liens filed against him and his former wife, Mashonda, in New York, Georgia and California. Their debts stand at about $2.2 million. A lawyer for Beatz said, “We have been discussing the issue with the government for years and are currently negotiating an amicable resolution of the dispute.” (Source)
