*As he prepares to welcome his first child with fiancée Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz has made peace with his ex-wife Mashonda, who was suing him for missed alimony payments and back child support.
The beatmaker, born Kasseem Dean, split from Mashonda in 2008 after four years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized in May, but within days of the union being officially over, Beatz was accused of falling behind on his alimony and child support responsibilities for their three-year-old son, Kasseem Jr.
According to the New York Daily News, Mashonda’s lawyer, Bernard Clair, confirms that she’s now received a check from Swizz for $334,000 to avoid a scheduled June 10 court date.
Meanwhile, Beatz are said to be “blissed out” with news they’re going to be parents.
“I’m super-excited,” Swizz tells the New York Daily News from St. Tropez. “People are calling me from Dubai and Japan. We haven’t set a wedding date, but we will. We’re just letting everything flow.”
