Singer Alicia Keys, 30, and music producer Swizz Beatz, 32, display their deep love and affection for each other at the Keep a Child Alive Black Ball dinner at Camden Roundhouse in London yesterday. Alicia doesn’t care that strangers are still angry at her for breaking up Swizz Beats’ marriage to VIBE writer Mashonda. No one knows the true story of how she and Swizz came to be together.
“We didn’t start seeing each other until months after they had separated,” said Keys in a recent interview.
Alicia and Swizz, real name Kasseem Dean, wed in July of last year on the French island of Corsica while she was six months pregnant with their first child, Egypt. Another factor in the breakup of Swizz’s marriage was a fling with a British woman who gave birth to his only daughter, Nicole, now 3.
Swizz has 4 children — that we know of.
