Details From Swizz Beatz Racketeering Case


Last week news leaked that music producer Swizz Beatz had been named in a lawsuit accusing him of re-leaseing and selling cars that did not belong to him [click here if you missed that].

More details leak...

According to Yahoo News Swizz leased at least 10 cars in his and Alicia Keys' name including McLarens, Bentleys, Porsches and Ferraris.

While Alicia Keys is mentioned in the filing she is NOT named in the lawsuit.

The plaintiffs, Metro Gem Leasing and Funding, are seeking $42 million in restitution.

Alicia better not say she didn't know what was going on like she Phaedra. Yall been married all these years...you know where his income came from.

Swizz Beatz wants to be Tony Montana but he's more Joanne the Scammer. This nigga has had plenty of opportunities to make money/advance his career in the past five years since merging with Akeys. He had major deals with major companies, but lost them all because he isn't as half as smart or interesting as he thinks he is (or what his hoes tell him). Alicia only married this fool so she can say she had a husssband *Phaedra voice*

I wonder how Alicia had herself removed from the lawsuit if the lease was under both of their names. Especially now that Alicia is out here judging on the Voice and is performing on the Tidal concert, putting her name back out there. Something isn't right. Maybe Alicia was really unaware or she has a very good lawyer. Either or.

Since i'm feeling helpful today, here's some suggestions for Swizz to make up the difference:

1) Put up all your homes, it may match the price.

2) Ask Nicki for it, wait, she said no....

3) Go back to moving light weight in the south while living in Hoboken.

4) Ask Jay for help, or was that Bacardi deal all he could swing for you?...

5) Put out an album, oh wait no ones checking for your music.

6) Go back to robbing niggas with Earl. Fuck it.

@1:36 They probably don't think she was involved in the subleasing of the vehicles.

Basically, just saving some time because her attorney would've went to the judge to get her name removed and that would've taken time. They can always sue her later if it's found that she was involved too.

"I wonder how Alicia had herself removed from the lawsuit if the lease was under both of their names."

Exactly. If Alicia's under the lease then she should be named under the lawsuit. Somebody lying.

42 million!

Shiidddd he ain't got it. Isn't this what Lisa Raye ex husband do something similar to her.

Allihave2say said...

I don't understand the math. How did he accumulate $42M in debt from leasing cars. He could have purchased them all for less than 1/2 that amount. Someone educate me.

@2:00

And Lisa only married him for the money. When you marry for money you earn every penny.....

People have forgotten about the kimdotcom and Megaupload Fraud case. Swizz was silent partner.

Marrying Alisha amd controling all her money and now this. Ive heard he has a Nelly problem, Gambling and Cocaine.

I feel bad for Alisha, she was just a kid, when she hooked up with him, she is naive

@2:08 I think that is what they feel he cost them in potential funds since they are alleging he was subleasing cars for profits that they leased to him. Some may be an amount that is outlined in their contract with him (we can litigate up to x amount if you violate these terms). The rest is probably trying to stick him for as much as they can. Lol

@3:48

Alicia was 27 when she allegedly started an affair with him. Hardly a "kid".

Anonymous said...

@4:41 Right! She was a grown ass woman.

Anonymous said...

I read somewhere that she is older than that. They shave a few years than their reported age

Anonymous said...

@3:48 Oh yes I remember the Megaupload case, in fact it's still ongoing. Swizz was VERY lucky to get away from that.

@3:48 and @6:19 That megaupload case was one of the Biggest criminal cases he got away with. However other co-founders were arrested. Suffere a huge loss of 500 million.

Alicia looks a good 45yo these days, but I just thought that was due to the facelifts....

@6:54 Yes Im very familiar if you noticed alot of his Industry Friends Blacklisted Him for pulling them in that Mega Upload mess.

Alot of Lables turned there back on Swizz also because of that Megaupload mess, he was taking money out of their pocket.

Reality is if he didnt marry Alishas Money , Swizz would have been broke and washed up years ago. Smart move like Jay Z marrying Beyonce. Actually I think he followed Jays lead deciding to jump into that Marriage.

Alisha had one serious relationship and was new in the Industry, thats why she was naive and like a child. .No way she was even a little prepaired for what the Industry was about to expose her to.

^As a producer, he can get himself back on the map. If he gets serious and stop the scheming. They said he was working on onika's album

Anonymous said...

Alicia Keys naive? Protégé of Clive Davis? Allegedly one of the biggest examples of the benefits of payola in the 00s? Robber of India Arie at the Grammy's? While I don't think she had anything to do with Swizz's scheme, she is NOT naive.

Anonymous said...

Cosign 7:47 pm. I know she didn't see it then, and still may not see it now, but she got away from this scheming adulterer. This guy does not have a sound character, at all. Alicia participated in destroying a family unit, and at times seemed proud of it. I guess now she'll have her own fish to fry.

^Well it's just an industry marriage. Not a "real" marriage. But they are comfortable with each other

MEGA UPLOAD said...

@11:39 not now of course. Back then as new Artist. Marrying Swizz is a perfect example. She had no idea what she was getting into.

Clive didnt teach Alisha anything about business side of music. Davis has been raping artist figurativley and literally for 50 years.

What swizz did alot of celebs do, and have been doing when money is tight.

Selling perks,

If your getting free or reduced price luxury rentals, because you driving the car is promotion to rent to other celebs,

Also things like re-selling promotional gifts, renting out free hotel rooms, renting out lable owned property, renting out label owned studios, black marketing music, stealing other artist music and boot legging, booting legging tickets to concerts.

I know a couple instances where Grammy Gifts were re-sold and the companies involved sued the Celebs

@9:17 She wasn't new to the industry when they got together. At all.

@11:39

I wish yall would stop that India Arie mess. Where is she now? Yes her album was good but they knew which artist was gonna have the most longevity and it wasn't her.

Anonymous said...

@6:47

I think the megaupload poster means Alicia didn't know the business of the industry and what the ramifications would be of her marrying Swizz in the long run. Her manager handled all that, she fired him just prior to marrying Swizz. She has went through a series of managers since then which shows she doesn't have an eye for business. Currently she's being managed by her gf, probably because no one else will take her on.
