keys-beatzAug 2, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The celebrity wedding season has not only seen the former president’s daughter tying the knot but also the queen of hip hop exchanging the vows. As the pictures of Alicia Keys begins to make the rounds on the web, her new husband has also become a hot search. Rapper/Producer Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys have been the new power couple in the music industry over the last few months.

In the wedding, that took place on Saturday, Swizz Beatz was seen in a white tux with a pink shirt underneath. The wedding was also attended by his two sons from previous marriage. His real name is Kasseem and he is known to have worked with Alicia Keys for quite sometime now. A recent report suggests that he has also had a lot of say in the career of Alicia Keys in the recent months.

According to an insider, Swizz Beatz had recently persuaded Alicia Keys to fire her manager Jeff Robinson. A source reported that the manager used to charge an exorbitant 25% from the star over the years. He had also charged 33% as commission of the total earnings of Alicia Keys when she was unrecognized. Alicia Keys had been told by many people close to her to fire him earlier, but Swizz Beatz insistence seems to have yielded results finally. The announcement was made in late July about the split between the manager and Alicia Keys and some of the reports suggest that it will allow Alicia Keys much better control over her career. The 29 year old hip hop star is due to give birth to Swizz Beatz’s and her lovechild in November this year.
