Alicia Keys - Beatz Hit With New Tax Liens

ALICIA KEYS' producer husband SWIZZ BEATZ is struggling to control his finances - U.S. officials have slapped him with two new tax liens, amounting to $400,000 (£266,670).
The hip-hop star is no stranger to tax authorities - he and his ex-wife Mashonda were previously accused of owing around $2.2 million (£1.46 million) to the states of New York, Georgia and California.
In June (10), he was hit with another demand for $652,727 (£435,151) for delinquent taxes stemming from 2008 and now the beatmaker, real name Kasseem Dean, reportedly owes a further $400,000, bringing the grand total of all his tax debts to more than $2.6 million (£1.73 million).
The new additions were filed by IRS agents in his native New York in October (10) and as recently as last week (ends07Jan11).
Beatz, who wed Keys in August (10) and welcomed their first son, Egypt, in October (10), was said to have worked out a payment plan with the U.S. government to pay off his debts last year (10).
