Swizz Beatz reportedly bought Alicia Keys a 7.5 carat engagement ring according to Mashonda Dean’s lawyer, Bernard Clair. In a statement release to the press defending Mashonda’s decision to sue Swizz Beatz for missing court ordered payments, Bernard Clair confirms that Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys are engaged, and have purchased a $14.5 million penthouse together.
Dean’s lawyer, Bernard Clair, called the nonpayment “particularly troubling” because of reports that Beatz bought a seven-carat engagement ring for Keys earlier this year and that they’re moving into a $14.5 million duplex penthouse on Crosby Street.
Mashonda Dean filed papers against Swizz Beatz in the Manhattan Supreme Court, stating that even though the ink is barely dry on the divorce papers, Swizz Beatz is already behind $334,000 in missed payments. Swizz Beatz says he’s paid Mashonda $500,000 more than the court required upfront, and that he was ready to make the other payments, but Mashonda started selling all of his stuff out of their crib. (I swear y’all I did not make this up).

I mean have you seen Delonte West). But days later after the damage has been done, LeBron James has finally stopped sulking over his lost to the Boston Celtics, to defend his mom’s honor.
