Swizz Beatz Slapped With $42 Million Civil Racketeering Suit
Beatz, AKA Kasseem Dean, is one of the defendants in the $42 million civil racketeering suit filed in Brooklyn federal court Wednesday.
Metro Gem Leasing and Funding Corp. says in its suit that they were happy to lease cars, including a Bentley Continental and a Ferrari F12, to Beatz “for use for him and his wife Alicia Keys.”
That’s how Beatz’s pal Macky Dancy, of the Great Neck, LI, dealership Dancy Auto Group, allegedly explained it to Metro Gem.
Beatz leased 10 cars between 2013 and 2016 at rates of up to $7,000 a month, the suit says. The company claims in court papers that Beatz conspired with Dancy to release the vehicles to third parties at a a markup.
Beatz and Dancy also illegally resold the Ferrari, even though they didn’t own it, the suit says.
A Beatz rep said he and his affiliates “are innocent pawns in a years-long, multi-million dollar dispute.”
