Rap producer Swizz Beatz has settled a dispute with ex-wife Mashonda over missing child support payments as he prepares to welcome his first child with fiancee Alicia Keys.

The beatmaker, real name Kasseem Dean, split from R&B singer Mashonda in 2008 after four years of marriage, and their divorce was finalized in May. But within days of the union being officially over, Beatz was accused of falling behind on his alimony and child support responsibilities for the former couple's three-year-old son, Kasseem Jr.

The producer was due to appear before a judge in New York's Manhattan Supreme Court in June to answer the allegations, but Mashonda's lawyer, Bernard Clair, has confirmed Beatz has paid up the $334,000 debt and the court date has now been canceled.

Beatz and Keys confirmed rumors they are engaged and expecting a baby last week but the hip-hop star insists they have yet to decide on a date for their big day, which will take place before the end of the year. He tells the New York Daily News, "I'm super excited. People are calling me from Dubai and Japan. We haven't set a wedding date, but we will. We're just letting everything flow."

I have to agree with everyone who thinks that she is a homewrecker. Her happiness comes at the expense of someone elses' happiness.

alicia has now got herself in a fix. If a union is shrouded in evil and inappropriateness, asking God for blessing is futile, no blessings will be given. 2 The day Alicia or that Swiss playboy decide to treminate the relationship, the world will be on Alicia as in: I told you so 3 The more the delay in ending this union, the more it carries through the years, the more the damage there is (ask Whitney Houston)and the more there is career-limiting, unrecoverable damage 3 Alicia will suffer more than Swiss. Society is much more judgemental on women than men. Now Alicia is now the superw***** whereas Swiss is the the ultimate playboy with a savvy sense of provident *****es. After all is said and done, please let us remember the poor innocent kids caught up in the mess of cheap adults chasing materialism, joys of flesh and ‘spark’. May God bless them and forgive their parents. PS I fully support Alicia on her orphanage initiative. But it doesnt help when u join the homewrecking brigade that is the major cause of these very orphans! What an own goal! now this alicia shit cant no longer sing A woman's worth or Karma without sounding hypocritical. She should start writings songs based on themes such as husband-stealing or blow-jobs. Collaborations with Snoopy Dogg cant be a bad idea

thats so easy. AK has deep pockets and most likely the homewrecking AK/SB commitee decided to do away with the potentially bad publicity a legal court showdown would inevitably bring. but they should know that money can only do u so much. there is yet a price to pay. the price tag is so big, so painful.
