Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz got married in France yesterday


On Friday, Perez Hilton was one of the first to report that Alicia Keys and Swizz beatz had gotten married last weekend. Perez sourced Us Weekly, who only a few hours later ate sh-t and admitted that Alicia and Swizz had not gotten hitched. However, everyone could have just waited a few days – according to mostly British sources, Alicia and Swizz got hitched in France yesterday, Saturday the 31st. Apparently, it happened in Corsica, and people like Queen Latifah and Bono came to the wedding. According to sources, Swizz wore a white tuxedo jacket, a pink shirt and bow tie (bad call with that nose, in my opinion, a bow tie draws the eye up), and Alicia wore white on her large baby bump:

Mother-to-be Alicia Keys has tied the knot with her rap producer boyfriend in France. The singer, who is due to give birth in November, walked down the aisle yesterday in front of a host of celebrity guests, including U2 rocker Bono and Queen Latifah.

Keys reportedly wore a flowing white gown and headband, while her partner, Swizz Beatz, donned a white tuxedo and bow tie for the big day.

The pair arrived at their venue in Corsica several days ago and have been spotted relaxing and sunbathing together ahead of the celebrations. Keys, 29, is a seasoned performer. At the age of seven she started performing classical music on the piano.

Her debut album, Songs In A Minor sold over 12million copies worldwide and earned her five Grammy Awards in 2002, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year for Fallin’.

Keys and Beatz, whose real name is Kaseem Dean, have been dating since 2008.
Beatz is currently finalising his divorce from his first wife of four years, Mishonda Tifrere, who is also the mother of one of his two children.

Last month Keys confirmed on Good Morning America that she is pregnant and due in November.

Well, congratulations to them. I really do hope that they’ll be happy and that their marriage won’t be as drama-filled as the previous year has been, what with Mashonda calling Alicia a homewrecker and Jahna Sebastian (Swizz’s third baby-mama) making a lot of noise. Alicia doesn’t seem to be bothered by all of it – after all, Oprah told her to ignore it, right? So Alicia probably thinks Swizz has changed. Or that he would never cheat on her and dump her and get another girl pregnant, right? And hey, maybe he won’t. Fingers crossed.

    This is not going to end well. Poor baby!

  2. Jackie says:

    I used to have so much respect for her, and while its not fair to only hear this side of the story, all the noise is a bit overwhelming.

    I am trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, and hope she is still the person who embodied all the strength she was once so adamant about.

    BUT, I think something really shady is up, and get a very bad feeling about this whole situation. I really feel for her, if she got lost in it. So much DRAMA!

  3. Toe says:

    His face in the first picture. Look like he’s regretting it already.

  4. mrsodie2 says:

    And, cue all the “how you get him is how you lose him” comments.

    It IS possible that a man can change, if he WANTS to. I hope for the sake of the baby on the way that he does.

    Mazeltov to Alicia and Swiss Cheese.

  5. Dhavy says:

    I want to say congratulations but it doesn’t feel right. Somehow it seems like she doesn’t care about all the drama because she thinks it won’t happen to her. Sadly, I have a feeling this is not going to last but I won’t feel sorry for her if it does.

  6. Missfit says:

    He hardly looks happy in most of the pics with her and I’m sure IF he is “smiling” it’s forceful. Well…let’s see who his next baby momma is going to be, it’s the matter of time. For most men, spreading their seed doesn’t automatically make them a good father, there’s more to parenting than just giving your child your presence in the room…it’s not always just the mother who should take care of them, it goes both ways.

  7. DetRiotgirl says:

    Well, good luck to the new couple. Although, that top picture is pretty hilarious in context.

    Considering that this guy has three children by three other women already, I really just hope that Alicia will have it in her to make civil contact with, and let him have contact with, all the other involved parties. It’s not fair to the other children to have to grow up without a dad, or to have to feel that they are somehow less special than the child with the woman he is currently married to. It is also not fair for these children not to get to know their half siblings. Everyone involved needs to make sure these children are loved equally and raised with as little resentment as possible, and a huge part of that responsiblity falls on Alicia and this man. I hope they do the right thing.

  8. rkintn says:

    So, his other marriage isn’t finalized and he’s getting married again? Isn’t that bigamy? Or does it not really count cause they got married in France?

    Whatever, I hope it works out for her, but something tells me they won’t be living happily ever after.

  9. hellen says:

    The divorce countdown clock is ticking away. Tick tock.

  11. Feebee says:

    Oprah told her to ignore it?!!!!! The same Oprah who tells people to listen to their instincts about being in a bad relationship… She’ll be the first to want Alicia’s interview if and when this marriage turns to custard, asking “so when did you realise the man you married had some more serious issues, ones too great for your love to overcome?” shit like that I expect.

    I wish her luck but only 1/1000 leopards can change their spots.

  12. Sans says:

    His divorce just finalized so NO bigamy. Don’t be silly. Anyway I guess she wanted however she got it. She couldve waited a year after his divorce finalized to get married and time after that to have a baby. She’s only 29. I don’t know what she sees in this fool. He’s part of the hip hop crew and has got money I guess. A man should at the most have one baby momma if any, that should have been creating during marriage. Someone already posted baby momma #3 said she wrote that post a month ago and it wasn’t about Alicia. Anyway I give this thing 2yrs. people who have great success have hard heads…. That’s why they have it but sometimes a hard head makes a soft ass. Yeah sorry she needs to do better than this. Have him care for the baby and get someone with not all that baggagge . 4 different baby mommas. Try a condom.

  13. bellaluna says:

    Hopefully, Alicia will see that he’s “fixed.” He’s obviously a hard dog to keep on the porch.

    Sure sounds like the divorce is NOT finalized to me, but, whatever.

  15. Lydia says:

    His divorce from Mashonda was finalized a few months ago and was reported on many blogs and TMZ.

    Well good luck to them and I hope he has changed.

  16. kaligula says:

    does anyone else see hints of a potential jesse james/sandra b. situation here? for some reason i get the feeling he’s going to battle similar feelings of unworthiness and possible jealousy for his massively talented, popular and likeable wife….

    nonetheless, love does conquer all. i wish them every happiness!

    also, i do hope those exes hush up. sore losers.

  17. DD says:

    Sadly I feel sorry for her. To marry someone like this seems to me like she has no self esteem and she’ll probably never really feel loved by someone like him.

  18. mel says:

    why am I not happy about this marriage. oh well se la vie!

  19. lucy2 says:

    Good luck, she’ll probably need it.

  20. Eden says:

    I think Swizz is sexy, I admit it.
    I do like the big nose looking guys..
    I fall with Mrsodie2 on this one.
    I think a man can change if he’s ready and wanting to change.
    Alicia could be the place he turns the corner…I’m not feeling it strongly but I’m not inside the guys head, so who knows where he’s at.
    Whether they last forever or not, hopefully he will treat her with respect and love and the same to his new child. That’s all that matters.

  21. LolaBella says:

    I saw the wedding pics on another site and she looks beautiful, happy and radiant.

    The best of luck to both of them and that baby, but I have a feeling this relationship won’t end well.

  22. Kazoo81 says:

    wedding pictures here:

    her dress looks like a toga. :(

    the hairpiece would’ve looked much better if her hair was down.

    i’m disappointed. corsica is such an exotic, beautiful place from what i’ve seen in pics. they didn’t seem to make good use of their surroundings.

  23. tssssss says:

    I am sorry but I think he looks ugly as hell and I would never marry someone who has been married before and left his wife and has two children from two different mothers. He treated his former woman bad so why would he change it now? I give them one year! I thought she would be smarter.

  24. Emmanuel says:

    I totally agree with every one i thought she even liked Chad Micheal Murray when i saw him in her video He is so much better than this BIG NOSE of a guy she married

  25. Courtney says:

    that’s like telling somebody not to follow their heart. which means your saying in a back handed way that Paul Newman should’ve stayed in a loveless marriage and ignored the woman he went on to spend the rest of his life with and the child they later lost. which means he and Joanne never would’ve had their three golden princesses.

    good luck to Alicia and Swizz

  26. lukie says:

    So, do ya think before the wedding the nose of doom hopped a ride through the chunnel to drop off some child support?

    He disgusts me and unless there is some behind the scenes stuff going on, I do not respect women that do not put a foot up their man’s a** to pay child support to the little people that did not ask to be here.

    That’s my $.02

  27. Sans says:

    Oh please .Getting knocked up and married in the same breathe is stupid. I never checked on how Newman ended his union. Didn’t some actor ditch his wife for Elizabeth Taylor then Taylor him.
    Some divorces take time. They say in New York you have to wait a yr and be legally seperated before filing for divorce. He couldn’t wait to announce hhis seperation from his wife to start dating keys. They couldn’t wait a yr from the time his divorce was final to get married. Then when married get pregnant. Why the rush. These people are still young .
    Like Alicia said she didn’t have a life just worked so she just jumped head first into a relationshipwith a guy that said he’d commit. He had his wife pregnant when he had another woman pregnant and his wife had a miscarriage. I’m sure it’s hard to meet a guy not intimidated by her fame and success. She settled though ….just to have a life. This one isn’t going to workout. He got with keys just like he did his wife. Still tangled with another woman. I hope this mess ends sooner than later, while she’s still young.

  28. Tiffany says: has a story about the marriage and a photograph.

  29. sickofit says:

    uh oh he looks so cheesy and those wedding pics, well this is so not going to last…

  30. Camille says:

    Good luck to them.

  31. bellaluna says:

    It’s easy to say what we would never do or would have done when we’ve never been in that specific situation.

    Knowing myself, I wouldn’t allow myself to become involved with guy who serially impregnates and cheats on the women he’s been with. It’s also a point of pride that I’ve not been the “other woman.” I’ve been cheated on and, knowing the pain it causes, would not be a willing participant in doing that to another person.

    As to whether men (people) change – I believe some men (people) are able to change IF THEY WANT TO. My husband and his ex were in the process of a divorce when we met. I don’t mean it was something they had discussed once or twice; I mean it was in process, they were living in separate homes, and it was over but for the finalisation. Since I was in the process of a divorce too, I didn’t judge. (Those who’ve read some of my comments before know that my ex refused to sign the damn papers until 3 years after I’d filed, when he was getting married to his mistress in like 5 days.)

    He was honest with me, told me they had been married too young and only because she was pregnant. They’d both been cruel to one another, and she was extremely jealous. He and I have been married for almost 10 years. I know he loves me, he knows I love him, and neither of us worry about the other cheating or leaving. When the person is right for you, it all works out.

  32. K-Love says:

    Wow. Im sorry to say, but everything within me is screaming nooooooooooooo! to the uttermost nooooooo!AK is really going to go through with this dude. She doesn’t have a clue about what she has gotten herself into.She doesn’t even know the real Swiss, but she is about to find out the hard way. This man has a evil heart, he doesn’t care about people’s feelings, especially women. He has deep, deep issues, AK should have really done some research on this dude, before she said I Do. She is going to regret this relationship from the core of her being. He is going to rock her world, but not in a good way.She will learn a vauable lesson and she will be stonger for it, but she is going to get hurt. Really bad. So many prayers goes out for AK.

  33. Confuzzle says:

    I give it six months.

  34. Bec says:

    If he’ll cheat with you, he’ll cheat on you.

    We’ll be reading about his infidelities within a year.

  35. GatsbyGal says:

    He better know not to break her heart and leave her a single parent…she’ll write an entire album about how much of a douche he is.

  36. Delta Juliet says:

    Sure, people can change. But he’s got QUITE a history to show otherwise. I guess we’ll see…

  37. sandy says:

    poor alicia, i wish them well, finding out he got another person pregnant while dating her and divorcing his ex-wife is not good.

  38. Morgs says:

    What’s with the “poor Alecia” BS? Bitch is a grown woman who seems to know exactly what she’s getting herself into. Her actions have proved her to be trash just like Her husband Gonzo is trash. Have fun with what’s coming to your Morally heinous ass.

  39. MIMI says:


    i can say i lost all respect for both of them. i feel like every one else this is tooo much drama i always seen her as a strong woman with i can hardly listen to any music she has put out. which really sucks…..

    i do wanna say congrats to both of them even though its wrong

    i do hope all goes well for them as a family

    …..n wtf! why did she wear white??????????

  40. kellu says:

    YES I agree with bellaluna when a person if for you everything works out. sometimes we all mess up fall in lust instead of love, so think about it Alicia is not selfish because she did not have her father growing up, so it does not bother her that Swiss needs to take care of those kids, besides remember that kids always leave the nest and the most important blessing is husband and wife. kids will leave and have there own family. husband and wife are meant to last forever. don’t judge and you will not be judged. trust me someone had bad mouth me because I married a divorced man, and she ended up in a horrible situation with no idea who her 2 babys daddy’s are…so ? ya becareful what you say you might end up in a worse situation.

  41. aa says:

    I feel bad for the kids who are going to grow up knowing their dad was a no good cheat. And as for Alicia, God will deal with her good and i am just speechless
