Last May, the producer reportedly paid over $330,000 to his ex-wife Mashonda in a child support lawsuit.

Beatz was accused of falling behind on his alimony and child support responsibilities for the former couple’s three-year-old son,Kasseem Jr. The producer was due to appear before a judge in New York’s Manhattan Supreme Court in June (10) to answer the allegations, but Mashonda’s lawyer, Bernard Clair, has confirmed Beatz has paid up the $334,000 debt and the court date has now been cancelled. Beatz separated from Mashonda in 2008 after four years of marriage. (Singersroom)

Aside from legal issues, Beatz spoke on his positive contributions within his community last year.

Swizzy appeared on “106 & Park” yesterday with Diddy and Dirty Money to speak on his contributions. “I just came from the Bronx Charter School For the Arts,” he said. “I’m in the middle of sponsoring them, funding them, helping to rebuild them. Shout out to them, they got an art auction coming up.” The public elementary school is located in the Hunts Point neighborhood of the South Bronx. (XXL Mag)

When reached by SOHH, a publicist for Swizz Beatz denied to comment but said the matter is being handled legally.
