Alicia Keys Wants No Parts Of Swizz Beatz’s Legal Battle; Files Motion To Be Dismissed From $16.5 Million Lawsuit

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

Lawyers for Metro Gem Leasing served papers to Swizz 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 September.

In the complaint, the pair are accused of defaulting on five luxury car leasing agreement. Including a $155,000 Range Rover and a $600,000 Ferrari F12!

Beatz’s pal Macky Dancy, of the Great Neck, LI, dealership Dancy Auto Group, once explained the supposed scenario, saying, “Beatz leased 10 cars between 2013 and 2016 at rates of up to $7,000 a month, the suit says. The company claims in court papers that Beatz conspired with Dancy to release the vehicles to third parties at a markup.”

The Blast says Alicia 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 singer also declared that executives at the leasing firm are trying to involve her in the suit to maximize their potential payout.

The Blast added 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.


Yeah. We don’t know.

He has been in the midst of some sticky money situations before, reportedly.

He supposedly did not pay his 2015 taxes and subsequently owed a total of $275,727.12 dollars. His notice was prepared in Manhattan, New York on August 5th on 2016.

He also had a federal tax lien sent to him last year, which accused him of owing $88,662.94 dollars from 2014.



Swizz once may have shilled out more than $732,000 to the IRS, to cover a large amount of the millions he owed in unpaid taxes. A court document stated that he handed over a total of $723,710.41 for unpaid taxes for the year 2006, which means he had paid the feds in full on the debt he owed them. At one point in time, he owed more than $2.6 million to the IRS though.
Some people are just bad with money, folks.
