Multi-platinum selling artist, Grammy award winner and acclaimed actress Alicia Keys is pregnant and planning a July wedding to boyfriend and super music producer Swizz Beatz. Although this should be a joyous occasion and one filled with celebration and happiness – her future nuptials and impending birth are marred with scandal as Swizz Beatz is just wrapping up a nasty divorce and child custody battle with his soon to be ex-wife Mashonda.
What’s really shocking is that Alicia Keys was dating Swizz Beatz for quite some time and that means that he was a married man for the majority of their relationship. I don’t know about you but that situation reeks of drama and for someone who loves to sing about female empowerment and self-esteem, it seems a hard pill to swallow seeing her settle for a less than upstanding relationship.
I wish them the best but hope that history doesn’t repeat itself!
