Swizz Beatz Settles Child Support Dispute With Russian Singer
Rucuss staffSeptember 20, 2011
Swizz Beatz can’t catch a break.
The super producer remains in the headlines for his sexting scandal with 23-year old singer/songwriter Christina Elizabeth. And now every single move he makes is being reported.
According to the New York Post, Beatz has settled his child support case with a UK singer. Beatz and Keys flew to London in 2009 to take a paternity test, which later revealed he fathered a child with a Russian singer named Zhanna Andrianova, who performs under the name Jahna Sebastian. Their daughter Nicole is now three years old. Beatz met Andrianova in a club in 2007.
Since then, Beatz and Zhanna have been in the middle of a child support battle that has been delayed by difficulties of Zhanna obtaining a visa to come to the US for court appearances. She also refused to accept a settlement a year ago. But the dispute has been settled for an undisclosed, out-of-court agreement which included her $42,000 legal fees.
This is his second child support dispute that he’s settled. Last year, Beatz cleared up his $334,000 child support debt to ex-wife Mashonda.
According to Beatz’ attorney Robert Anthony Evans Jr., the producer is a good father and will always provide for his family.
“Mr. Dean has never failed to deliver on his responsibility to his children,” his attorney said.
Beatz married Keys in July 2010 and they have a son Egypt. He also has a son Prince Nasir, with ex-girlfriend Nicole Levy, and another son, Kasseem Dean Jr., his ex-wife Mashonda Tifrere.
