Gotham Gossipist: Alicia Keys’ Hubby Swizz Beatz Makes Babies All Over the World
By Kimberly Rae Miller
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It would appear Mr. Swizz Beatz, aka Bronx native Kasseem Dean, aka Mr. Alicia Keys, does not like condoms.
You can tell, because he has babies all over the world.
The New York Post is reporting that Beatz and Keys hightailed it to England so that Beatz could take a paternity test for a three year old girl named Nicole. Nicole was mothered by Zhanna Andrianova, a Russian born singer in the UK. Adrianova and Beatz met in 2007 and had Nicole in 2008.
When paternity tests came in positive, child-support negotiations started. Beatz’s attorney, Robert Anthony Evans Jr., told The Post that his client has no problem supporting each of his four kids.
“Mr. Dean has never failed to deliver on his responsibility to his children.”
That’s right, Mr. Alicia Keys has four kids with four mamas. When Alicia and Swizz met he was actually still married to Mashonda Tifrere with whom he has a son, Kasseem Dean Jr. Additionally, Beatz has an 11-year-old son, Prince Nasir by another woman. Keys is mother to his fourth child, a boy named Egypt born in 2010.
Poor baby Nicole escaped with the least regal sounding name.
As a part of their settlement, a New York-based judge sided with Andrianova and is requiring Beatz to pay her $42,000 in legal fees in addition to her child-support demands.
It’s a good thing he’s married to an A-lister, that’s a lot of legal fees.
Condoms, Beatz. They’re cheaper than babies.
