Swizz Beatz Settles Child-Support Case With Russian Singer
Swizz Beatz recently reached a child-support deal with Russian singer Zhana Andrianova, the mother of his three-year-old love child.
According to the New York Post, Beatz, born Kassem Dean, reached the settlement out-of- court, after months of going back and forth with the songstress’s lawyers and on the heels of rumors hitting that Internet that he has been cheating on his wife, Alicia Keys—allegations that he vehemently denied.
Sources tell the paper that the Bronx-bred superproducer was providing for Adrianova in the interim of the agreement. “Mr. Dean has never failed to deliver on his responsibility to his children,” his lawyer, Robert A. Evans Jr., told The Post.
This past Thursday (September 15), one of Manhattan Family Court’s judges granted Andrianova’s lawyers a money judgment to seek payment because she alleged that Swizzy agreed to pay her $42,000 legal fees within the settlement. Consequently, full payment was sent from Beatz to Andrianova’s attorney the following day to avoid SB’s assets being seized and bank accounts being frozen.
Beatz reportedly met Andrianova in a club in London back in 2007. The songstress gave birth to their daughter a year later and a paternity test in 2009 proved that the beatmaker was indeed the father. —Christopher Minaya
