It looks like #SwizzBeatz has some explaining to do after he got hit with a $16 million lawsuit that alleges he was part of a luxury car scam.
According to The New York Post, in a lawsuit filed in Nassau Supreme Court this past Friday, Swizz is being sued for reselling or “fraudulently using” luxury cars. It seems similar claims were made against both Swizz Beatz and his wife Alicia Keys’ company AK Worldwide, last year by a company called Metro Gem Leasing.
Metro Gem accused the pair of allegedly defaulting on their car leases and refusing to return the rides back to them. The suit was eventually thrown out, but Metro Gem is back and alleges this new suit highlights how Swizz drove these cars, avoided repossession and still owes them money!
Swizz’ Lawyer Matthew West is calling the latest filing “nothing more than a desperate attempt to shake down a public figure.”
Hopefully Swiss can get this all straightened out, $16 million is worth trying to figure out what’s going on!
