A post shared by Alicia Keys (@aliciakeys) on

Alicia Keys is fighting to be dismissed from a $16.5 million lawsuit filed against her and husband, music producer Swizz Beatz, who is being sued by a luxury car company.

In September, lawyers for Metro Gem Leasing sued Swizz, 39, and Alicia’s company, AK Worldwide Productions, accusing the producer of reselling and fraudulently using leased luxury cars after he defaulted on the payments.

In the complaint, the couple are accused of defaulting on five luxury car leasing agreements, including a $155,000 Range Rover and a $600,000 Ferrari F12.

According to The Blast, the 36-year-old mother-of-2 filed papers claiming she was not involved in the lease agreements, that her name is not included in any lease paperwork, and that to the best of her knowledge, the leased cars were returned.

The “Fallin” singer also accuses executives at the leasing firm of trying to involve her in the suit to maximize their potential payout.

Editors at The Blast add that Swizz, real name Kasseem Dean, has filed a separate motion to dismiss the case, accusing Metro Gem Leasing bosses of trying to obtain money from him due to his status as a public figure.

    I believe Alicia and swiss

  • bemetoo

    Those cars are noth worth 16.5million wtf

  • Yoni7

    A 155k Range? Really? Wow!

  • Diva4lyfe

    They need to quit leasing and just buy what u need. It makes no sense that some of these celebs act like they got to compete with the next celeb it is not that serious

  • You Could Never

    I dont blame her. Nigga just got out of 700k worth of tax debt. While she is busy disassociating herself with this shit she needs to start hiding her money. I would. Bc obviously his ass dont know what he is doing.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I agree everything will be separate.

  • You Could Never

    Why? He has a long history of trying to skate on tax troubles. More than once. Hell more than TWICE.

  • Ms..N

    Poor money management will have them in the poor house!!!

  • iWasteTime

    Why his ass went to Harvard. To learn how mayo do it and get away with it!

  • bemetoo

    Because as long as the company gets paid it doesn’t matter what if he sold a car or not

  • Yoni7

    Because I’m wondering does the 80k Range drive any less than the 155k Range?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I was trying to figure out the math too.
    Where the hell did they come up with $16.5 million?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    True but she knew what she was getting.

  • Yoni7

    He gone learn that you can’t do what they do and get away with it. There’s levels to this sh!t. *passes him the Sammy Sosa Mike Jackson Lil Kim bleaching cream starter kit* Start there. LOL

  • iWasteTime

    bwhahahahaah!
    Sammy Looking like death in the casket!

  • Li

    Somebody school me. What is this all about? He leased some cars for what purpose; and he didn’t pay them back. Is that what’s this about?

  • Li

    Money kills a marriage every time. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them in divorce court in a couple of years. It may be the only way she can get out of this.

  • Breitbart_Savior

    So ever people who don’t live off a 9-to-5 middle class salary sometimes live beyond their means?

    Man….the quest for fulfillment never stops! :[

  • iWasteTime

    It reads like he leased, but at the end of the lease, instead of turning in he sold them.

  • Li

    OHHHH.

  • 100milesperhour

    I think he was leasing the cars, then sub-leasing them out at even higher rates (for profit). I don’t think he was leasing for pleasure.

  • TMW

    Yep. Harvard educated, skin destroyed to pass…”still n**ga”

  • Yoni7

    And reheated twice. LOL

  • TMW

    LOTS of self-hate. LOTS!

  • You Could Never

    Poor Sammy. He did it to himself tho.

  • 100milesperhour

    Loss of revenue b/c he failed to return cars @ end of lease.

  • You Could Never

    He aint getting away with it tho. He had to just pay. Only color the IRS cares about is green.

  • You Could Never

    Correct bc his first wife name was on the original IRS tax bills as well. So Alicia already knew A.) He aint pay his toll/billd/fine/fees and B.) One day it wasnt going to say Mashonda anymore. It was going to say Alicia.

  • tintin

    marriage can benefit you and bring you down too.
    the sins of one spouse can detrimentally affect another spouse

  • tt

    Alicia done fell off since Swizz

  • what?why

    His ass didn’t physically go to Harvard – he took an online course/oertificate program. Anyone can do this, at any time. So NO he is not Harvard educated – he gave them some fast bucks.

  • Yoni7

    The + IRS = THEIRS

  • Anunnaki

    $600,000, why***shurgs******

  • You already know ?

    How in the Fck he is going to sell something that ain’t even his..?they should’ve sued his shady Azz!!!!!

  • Anunnaki

    Nope, same thing…same gas, same mileage, same paint, same manfacture, same car lot…lol

  • free

    ^^^ i’m trying to understand too.

  • free

    ok cause this some phaedra and apollo shyt.

  • tintin

    and homewreckers usually do fall off.

  • tintin

    bet you he was leasing to hood nigg*s. The dope boy ones and they weren’t paying.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Fools and their money. SMH!

  • nick c

    It’s five cars Sandra only listed two

  • Patricia

    celebs are all about status. cant be caught driving around in a 2018 nothing next year

  • nick c

    Actually its worst its a default on the lease meaning it had not not expired yet AND he kept the cars.

  • nick c

    Repairs is what destroys you I remember that’s was T-Pain who bought all his cars initially went to lease only. His Bugatti had 4 radiators and one broke out of warranty he said the repair bill was 70k.

  • Junkanoo

    That’s the problem with marriage and relationships if you get with someone who’s bad with money that habit becomes a burden for both individuals

  • Reina1718

    She stay looking high

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I know that. It doesn’t seem that three cars could be worth over $15 million unless they were one of a kind productions.

  • bemetoo

    Ain’t no way 2 USEDcars will make u 16.5 million

  • tt

    Yessssss

  • Stan4NoOne

    I’m guessing this is before his Harvard Business course… ?

  • Listen2Me

    And who bought them; considering he wouldn’t be able to give them a title ?????.

  • starbright9449

    Now I see why Beyonce said there are less problems in a marriage when you keep your money separate or someting along those lines. Alicia better hide her money but she knew what was coming marrying him.

  • the guest

    THIS is why he chose Alicia, for money. Mashonda wasn’t rich enough for him. Now look what Alicia signed up for. He is a hustler. If he was content with his marriage and family then why is he in a car leasing scam. Alicia will be the one settling this lawsuit out of her pocket.

  • the guest

    Fell off is kind. Alicia got dragged down.

  • the guest

    That’s straight criminal. Lawsuit? That’s the least of worries. Can be arrested?

  • Mischelle

    It truly does. Married ten years and we now have separate bank accounts because of different money management preferences. It works much better this way.

  • Lady_Elle

    She is married to him… she will likely stay attached to this lawsuit.
    If they remove her… a ruling for the plaintiff could result in a judgement that allows them to go after joint property.

  • shun king

    so he rode around in the cars he had on lease sold them to other groupie types for double the price and now he getting sued….

  • shun king

    from what i read he was selling the cars for like double the value to folks who want to be cool with swizz beats

  • shun king

    and from what i read almost a year ago he was selling them for double what they were worth

  • Diva4lyfe

    Dang ok I understand now

  • Diva4lyfe

    Lol

  • Diva4lyfe

    Nope just wasting money

  • Diva4lyfe

    wow so u getting extra and still can’t pay dang

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    I just thought they both were bearding for each other ?????

  • LOVE ALWAYS

    Karma……. You don’t always get it back the same way you put it in the universe. She didn’t try to separate herself from him when he left his wife for her……. Now that she getting sued for 16 mil, she trying to seperate herself from his shady dealings…. ?

  • the guest

    You know what, I never thought that, but when you said it, I can see that. Difference is, he’s a hustler and played on her shame, fears, and desperation.

  • the guest

    He’s a hustler. A scam artist. He was doing this scam with no regard to Alicia’s reputation and their family.

  • the guest

    The cars aren’t worth 15 million but the lease contracts, late fees, default damages are.

    We don’t know the contract he signed and the predatory terms he agreed to just to get possession of cars for his premeditated scam to resell them. Swizz appears to be a refined thug.

    Alicia and Swizz are the wealthy version of a professional or corporate woman with excellent employment and benefits whose husband runs credit card scams. I think Swizz is just criminal minded.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I have never leased or been sued ( because I pay my bills) so I will take your word for it.
    That owning back taxes for 20 years to the IRS kinda of money.

  • what?why

    Once again anyone can take an online course at Harvard. There is no background check, it’s all about money!

  • Stan4NoOne

    That was sarcasm…

  • tt

    Lolol You’re right

  • SDot

    she still a home wrecker.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    He sure did!!

  • jewel

    Why don’t she fight for her current marriage that she is openly sharing with his ex-wife Mashonda she is everywhere they are in every picture every event!!! I Sister Wives at it’s highest Level!!!!

  • jewel

    Mashonda is still with that Narcissistic Socialpath!!!

  • jewel

    Excellent observation!!!!!

  • jewel

    Yes!!! He paid $42,000 for a certificate that I am 100% sure someone else did all the paperwork!!!!!

  • jewel

    Hey Sandra Rose shy don’t you do an article on Baby Mommas that share ….Diddy, Swizz Beatz, Derrick Rose, Stevie J, Rapper Future!!! Yeah that would be a great article!!!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Everybody knows about that already.

  • the guest

    That makes this even sadder. That he uses both of these women and their vulnerabilities for his own purposes. But Alicia was so desperate to be a wife and Mashonda desperately doesn’t want to be alone. Alicia has an ex wife on the payroll and a liability for her husband’s money scams.

  • JackieBrown

    Hey Mashonda how you doing girl?

  • JackieBrown

    Lol
