*Producer Swizz Beatz not only has the attention of Alicia Keys, who’s pregnant by him, but the tax man, too. Beatz has been hit with an IRS lien for $652,787 for unpaid 2008 income taxes.
Unfortunately, this is not a first time issue for Beatz who, along with his former wife Mashonda, has had several liens filed against him amounting to a whopping $2.2 Million:
2006 – Somerset County, N.J.: $842,645 lien
2008 – Rockland County, NY: $556,989 lien
2009 – Rockland County, NY: $162,300 tax warrant
“We have been discussing the issue with the government for years and are currently negotiating an amicable resolution of the dispute,” Beatz’ attorney said.
