Swizz Beatz On Mashonda's $334K Lawsuit: 'She's Very Fortunate'

(AllHipHop News) Swizz Beatz’ former wife Mashonda Dean filed a lawsuit against the superstar producer in Manhattan Supreme Court, claiming he already owes her $334,000 in missed payments. The lawsuit was filed amidst reports that singer Alicia Keys is pregnant with Swizz’ child. Mashonda’s lawyer called the missed payments “troubling” because Swizz allegedly bought Alicia Keys a seven-carat engagement ring. Additionally, the new couple are expected to move into a $14.5 million penthouse in New York City. "I so much wanted both of us to get on with our lives and maintain our respect for one another, but he now shows that his priorities and sense of responsibility are screwed up," R&B singer Mashonda told The New York Post. Swizz Beatz denied that he owed Mashonda the money and said that he agreed to pay more than the judge and even his lawyers recommended. "I gave over what the judge was recommending to give. I gave her $700,000 upfront, because I thought $200,000 wasn't enough for what she wanted to do. I still get spit in my face for it," Swizz said. Swizz lashed out at his ex-wife, claiming that he was frustrated over Mashonda’s use of the media as their divorce played out. "I've been taking blows and punches the whole time. It's like here we go again," he said. "She's very fortunate. She's sitting here complaining about things people would love to have. You've got a new house, you've got everything you need . . . buying $10,000 bags and stuff like that. Now instead of focusing on work I have to spend time on this foolishness. Enough is enough already."Swizz Beatz and Mashonda are due back in court in June.
