Earlier this week, rumors swirled around the internet that mega producer Swizz Beatz had done the unthinkable and cheated on his wife, singer Alicia Keys. Amidst the frenzy of speculation and growing reports, Swizz and Keys are laughing off the rumors, calling them false.
Rumors of Beatz alleged infidelity were first spread by Bossip when they published an article on Sept. 12, claiming they’d obtained alleged screenshots of “salacious texts” sent between the producer and Houston singer-songwriter Christina Elizabeth, last month.
According to the gossip site, Swizz met Elizabeth in 2007 at a birthday party for Solange Knowles and sometime thereafter an affair began. The report also claims that Swizz’s affair with Elizabeth was also one the reasons for the demise of his marriage with singer Mashonda Tifrere, along with reports that the producer struck up a relationship with Keys while still married to the Love & Hip-Hop star.
But despite the claims of a marital rift, Swizz and Keys — who were spotted this past weekend at New York Fashion Week — looking as happy as ever, seem to be unfazed by the rumors and both recently took to Twitter to refute the claims.
“Haaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!! Some things are just LAUGHABLE!!!!!! Now, Let’s Continue to SHINE!! Everything else is a waste of time!! Sending love!” tweeted Keys.
“Wow people sure do take things far with the BS Lmao!” tweeted Swizz, adding, “If people put the same time into positive things the same as they do negative B.S the world would be a better place! #peopleneedhelp.” –nicholas robinson
