As rumors of infidelity swirled about in the online sphere regarding the high profile marriage between Alicia Keys and hubby Swizz Beatz, the pair lightly addressed the furor largely by laughing it off and ignoring the accusations via their respective Twitter accounts – even as the news continue to spread like wildfire throughout the Web.
Gossip site Bossip initially released a report which allegedly featured a series of racy text messages between Swizz Beatz, who celebrates his 33rd birthday today, and Houston singer/songwriter Christina Elizabeth. The messages were exchanged last month although it has been reported that Swizz, born Kasseem Dean, has known the young artist since 2007.
While not directly addressing the Bossip report, both Keys and Beatz took similar approaches in talking up the potentially nasty matter. “Wow people sure do take things far with the BS Lmao!” tweeted Swizz. He then followed with, “If people put the same time into positive things the same as they do negative B.S the world would be a better place! #peopleneedhelp.” Alicia Keys took a more humorous bent with her tweet which read, “Haaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!! Some things are just LAUGHABLE!!!!!! Now, Let’s Continue to SHINE!! Everything else is a waste of time!! Sending love!”
Backing up their unified showing to the world, pictures have surfaced of the couple and their children, infant son Egypt and his big brother Kasseem Jr. Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz were also seen together this past weekend at a New York Fashion Week event with little sign of troubles within their union.
