Alicia Keys is fighting to be dismissed from a $16.5 million lawsuit filed against her and husband, music producer Swizz Beatz, who is being sued by a luxury car company.
In September, lawyers for Metro Gem Leasing sued Swizz, 39, and Alicia’s company, AK Worldwide Productions, accusing the producer of reselling and fraudulently using leased luxury cars after he defaulted on the payments.
In the complaint, the couple are accused of defaulting on five luxury car leasing agreements, including a $155,000 Range Rover and a $600,000 Ferrari F12.
According to The Blast, the 36-year-old mother-of-2 filed papers claiming she was not involved in the lease agreements, that her name is not included in any lease paperwork, and that to the best of her knowledge, the leased cars were returned.
The “Fallin” singer also accuses executives at the leasing firm of trying to involve her in the suit to maximize their potential payout.
Editors at The Blast add that Swizz, real name Kasseem Dean, has filed a separate motion to dismiss the case, accusing Metro Gem Leasing bosses of trying to obtain money from him due to his status as a public figure.
