Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz Exchange Vows in Italy


Looks like it’s a hip-hop and R&B wedding weekend. Yesterday we reported that T.I. and longtime girlfriend Tameka “Tiny” Cottle wed in a private ceremony in a Miami Beach courthouse. Now, we hear Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz tied the knot today (July 31) in an intimate ceremony in Italy.

Miss Info was first to report on the couple’s private nuptials. A pregnant Keys and Beatz reportedly exchanged vows in front of their close family and friends aboard a 260-foot yacht on the Mediterranean Sea. The super producer celebrated with two bachelor parties, one in New York and one on Friday (July 30) at Sardinia’s legendary Billionaire Club. Beatz tweeted about his swanky bachelor party last night, writing in all caps “My party is crazyyyyyyy Italy Baby.” Post nuptials, Swizzy tweeted,“It’s a brand new day :) I feel like Nas and Diddy song :) love y’all and blessing!”

The singer was tight-lipped about her relationship with Beatz when she took over our studio in January and performed songs off her most recent release ‘The Element of Freedom.’ “There’s strength in vulnerability,” Keys expressed when discussing the amorous lyrics in ‘Un-thinkable (I’m Ready)’ and the guttural manner in which she belts out the words to ‘Love is Blind.’

Keys and Swizzy announced their engagement back in May, and eventually confirmed the pregnancy rumors. Shortly thereafter, Keys would go on to proudly show off her baby bump when performing at the World Cup Opening Ceremony and later at the 2010 BET Awards.
