The DNC appearance and a slew of performances on summer awards shows seemed to mark Keys’ return to pop-culture relevance, after a few relatively quiet years out of the spotlight, save for a mini-arc on Fox’s Empire in 2015.
At the BET Awards in June, she sang a medley of new songs, dressed in boho garb and rounded bebop shades while she banged on a drum machine and crooned into the abyss of gape-mouthed amphitheater guests.
In 2011, when the couple faced rumors Beatz cheated on Keys, and again in 2014 when he was caught contacting an Instagram model, bloggers cited karma.
However she reportedly continues to drive two luxury vehicles and take European holidays, but when she sees the bills for what Swizz is spending on Alicia, she goes green. Perhaps if they want to keep this going they better hope the project that brought them together, collaborating on Whitney Houston's song "Million Dollar Bill," will live up to its name and make this relationship worth the drama.
Such a gorgeous, smart and talented star..never any man since her split from Krucial? In April 2009 they split, with Mashonda claiming that Alicia Keys came between them. )Indeed he's said Alicia did throw him a party at the Guggenheim and they do buy each other expensive gifts, and this week they were spotted together at a romantic dinner in St. Fame Pictures has identified the man in these photos as Alicia's ex Kerry "Krucial" Brothers, but we've seen pics of K, and this man is almost certainly Swizz.
Since the split Mashonda also has spouted off about her dissatisfaction with Swizz, saying that when he cut his payments to her from ,000 to ,500 a month, it seriously affected her quality of life. However, Swizz says he and Alicia aren't ready for marriage and babies just yet.
After that ended, Keys began dating Swizz Beatz (born Kasseem Dean), a prolific hip-hop producer known for his work with Beyoncé, Jay Z, and DMX in 2008.
The problem was, he was still legally married to R&B singer Mashonda Tifrere.
