Will Swizz Beatz Make a Lousy Father to Alicia Keys' Baby?

We recently posted reasons Alicia Keys will make a great mom. You know what? In my opinion, part of being a great mother is surrounding your child with good influences, and Keys’ new husband Swizz Beatz isn’t exactly the model of responsibility. Between his history of not paying child support to ex-wife Mashonda (he was behind over $300k and she had to take him to court), his fondness for partying (on his honeymoon without his bride no less) and reports of being a deadbeat father to a child born in 2009, I’m not so sure he’s ever going to win Father of the Year. Or even be in the running. And now it’s come to light that he owes millions in back taxes.

RadarOnline.com has discovered that Beatz (real name Kasseem Dean) has run up 35 tax liens in the past seven years alone. Beatz racked up over $4 million in unpaid taxes in three different states between 2003 and 2010 and still owes around $2.4 million to the tax authorities.

To me, one of the tenets of being a good parent is fiscal responsibity, which Beatz obviously lacks. What do you think — has Alicia Keys picked the wrong baby daddy?
