Swizz is screwed.
Swizz Beatz is one of the hottest producers of our time. Since his Ruff Ryders days, he’s been producing hit after hit. Although he’s in the spotlight, it hasn’t shined on in his personal life as much. The last we heard of anything worth gossiping about was when he allegedly left his then-wife Mashonda for Alicia Keys.
The two have been living happily without any drama. But now, the super-producer is in some deep, hot water. The father of five is being sued by a car leasing company for allegedly duping them out of millions on top of millions of dollars.
According to Metro Gem Leasing and Funding Corp, Swizz, whose real name is Kasseem Dean, leased cars from the company, only to lease them to third parties through Dancy Auto Group, the dealership of his friend, Macky Dancy in which Swizz worked with.
According to Metro, Dancy allegedly told the company that the cars would be leased for Swizz’s personal use. Docs in Metro’s lawsuit state that they are happy to lease cars, including a Bentley Continental and Ferrari F12, to Swizz “for use for him and his wife Alicia Keys.” But they were duped.
From 2013 to 2016, Swizz leased 10 cars at rates of up to $7000 a month, according to docs. The company claims that both Swizz and Dancy schemed to lease the vehicles to other people at a higher price. The company also claims that Swizz and Dancy illegally resold the Ferrari.
