Swizz Beatz Settles Dispute With Ex-Wife Mashonda


Swizz Beatz


About to become the father of Alicia Key's child, Beatz paid $334,000 in debt to support Mashonda and their son Kasseem Jr.

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.

    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.
