Swizz Beatz has been named in as a defendant in a $42 million civil racketeering suit alleging that Beatz’s name was used to fraudulently lease luxury cars, NY Post reports.
Metro Gem Leasing and Funding Corp. filed the lawsuit in Brooklyn federal court Wednesday. The suit alleges that Long Island car dealership owner Macky Dancy leased cars to Beatz “for use for him and his wife Alicia Keys,” only for Beatz to re-lease them at rates of up to $7,000 per month. Metro Gem asserts that Beatz and Darcy conspired to mark up prices to unsuspecting third parties. Beatz allegedly leased out 10 cars in the last four years, including a Bentley Continental and a Ferrari F12
One of Swizz Beatz’s representatives claim that he and Darcy “are innocent pawns in a years-long, multi-million dollar dispute.”
