Hip-hop maestro Swizz Beatz is finally admitting that he and Alicia Keys are an item — but he wishes his estranged wife, Mashonda, would leave the Grammy winner out of their divorce.
For months now, Swizz has been trying to keep his thing with Alicia on the down-low. Swizz tells us that, yes, he's in love with Keys and, yes, she did give him a birthday party at that museum.
Although they wouldn't appear in public together until the following year, the shindig solidified that the two were an item. » On Thursday, a spokesperson for the couple confirmed that they were engaged and are expecting their first child together.
» In 2009, Swizz Beatz all but confirmed his relationship with Keys through a remix verse he added to Drake's hit, "Best I Ever Had," rapping, "She gave me a party at the Guggenheim ... The baby will be her first and his third: The producer has two other children from previous relationships.
I’m only making this statement because I’m being put out there as a liar and I am very embarrassed.
I would like to confirm that the rumor about Swizz Beatz cheating on Mashonda with me is absolutely true.

July 2010 - Present It was first reported in May of 2009 that Alicia Keys and rapper / producer Swizz Beats were dating, but the couple kept it pretty quiet.The next morning, he invited me to accompany him at Radio One (979 The Box) for his interview.Afterwards, we went back to his hotel room but we DID NOT HAVE SEX.The news might have been a surprise to some: Keys is an R&B/pop superstar who has performed at President Barack Obama's inauguration, while Swizz (real name: Kasseem Dean) is a Ruff Ryders alumnus and a veteran hip-hop producer who's laced Jay-Z and DMX with some of their grittiest tracks.But the musical couple have been dating for a couple of years, at least since 2008, when rumors of their union began to swirl — and recently whispers about the two ratcheted up when photos of Keys with what appeared to be a baby bump appeared online.I would also like to confirm that the rumors about Swizz “sexting” me, even in his present marriage, are absolutely true.
