TIDBITS: Alicia & Swizzy's New $14 Mill Pad+Kelis Pays in Food+Whoopi Returns to "Sister Act"?

It was rumored back in January that engaged couple Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz were house hunting with Lenny Kravitz's famously fabulous Soho loft at the top of their list. 


And it looks like the couple just copped the $14 mill spot.  Well that'll be one HOT Welcome Home present for their new baby.  More ish when you read on...

What's so stunning about Lenny Kravitz' old place you ask?  Well according to the Real Estate Stalker:

“This spectacular duplex penthouse loft with 6,000 square feet of interior space and 3,000 square feet of outdoor space has been newly redesigned and renovated with no expense spared to create the most luxurious and important property downtown…A suspended glass staircase leads to the 2nd level which features the Master Bedroom w/ a sitting area, a huge Master Bathroom and 3 additional bedrooms each with their own bath. Another glass staircase leads to an enormous roof deck w/ a built-in barbecue….”




Kelis found an interesting way to pay her producers for her latest album. Instead of paying money, she made homecooked meals for them.....Yes, she paid them in food. More deets plus Whoopi returns to Sister Act when you read on....


She told Yahoo Music that she did not have a record deal OR the budget to pay a crew to complete the album. The singer said, "I just graduated from culinary school and I'm cooking a lot and I'm pregnant...you can eat. I have a studio in my house."

Maybe the $51,000 a MONTH that she receives from Nas isn't enough to make an album.  Go figure.  I guess her milkshake really does bring all the boys...and employees.

Whoopi Goldberg is set to return to Sister Act....the stage play version. She is currently in talks to join the London cast of the production. Whoopi played the role of Doloris/Sister Mary Clarence in Sister Act and its sequel.

The actress is reported to portray the role of Madame Superior, which was currently played by Dame Maggie Smith. Whoopi hopes to join the cast for the production's final run in October. The show will then cross the seas and make it's way to Broadway.  This sounds like a perfect opportunity for Lauryn Hill to reprise her role as well.  Just wishful thinking...

Would you see the Broadway version of Sister Act?





Don't y'all think that they

Don't y'all think that they know that they have to make modifications to that place - especially when the kid begins to crawl, etc. This is Alicia's first kid and I'm sure she will be the usual over protective mother. Yes, she performed on the piano, but it was clear she was confident in what she was doing. I know this is a blog, but do y'all have to be so judgmental and know it all?

I think Swizz beats falling

I think Swizz beats falling in love with Alicia is kind of admirable, that is if she's really a superwomen who stresses what a woman's worth. How many men really want to be with an intelligent, business-minded, confident, superwomen (not many)...good for him for being attracted to quality...... of course it's possible that she could be another way just for him, a weak puppet.

Every time I hear about Kelis

Every time I hear about Kelis my heart breaks for Nas. If she were a good woman or a woman with a heart she wouldn't be treating this man like a paycheck. Men wrap it up and sign prenups.
I'm Just Saying...'s picture

When you hear that someone

When you hear that someone owes the IRS an amount, their original amount might be 1/3 of that. That's how the IRS gets down, after penalties, interest and fines you can't recognize what they really owe. The other thing we need to be aware of is that as a singer/producer etc. you might send the IRS a check saying this is what I owe, the IRS then gets back to you in a year or two and says, "NO, we calculated it based on what we came up with and this is what you REALLY owe." That's why you need a good manager and accountant when you are in that type of business.

Nas does not have he cash. I

Nas does not have he cash. I am not saying that he doesn't have assets that he can turn into cash, but raw cash, he doesn't have much of that. Recently he was behind in the mortgage payments on her house and had to broker a deal where he paid so much up front and the rest over a 6 month period. These are facts, not made up stories. Listen, I like Nas and I like Kelis, but I still think the $50,000 was calculated based on his assets, look for that amount to be reduced before the end of the year.
zappy's picture

I'm pretty sure Nas has MUCH

I'm pretty sure Nas has MUCH more money than y'all think. He just doesn't WANT to hand that kind of cash over to his ex, and I don't blame him. He's playing the game to get the amount lowered and it has worked thus far. Also, the home that was behind is Kelis' responsibility, Nas hasn't had to pay for that in a while. Kelis can't afford it so Nas is taking over payment & will be exempt from paying her alimony while he pays the house note and it will be sold because she can't keep up with the payment. Read the actual docs for the truth & not just the part of the story the tabloids pull out.

I want to wish Alicia the best, but Swizzy is so sketch. Dude has motives and she's too "in love" to see it. He's gonna play her, just like he did the rest. Lol Kelis was hustling lol I think Kelis was still w/Nas then though. She isn't getting 50k from Nas though, that's why he owes her so much and has made payment plans. He's got millions in debt, he is not paying her that much.
