Last week the rumor mill was buzzing about the possibility that Alicia Keys would marry her half-Boricua rapper beau, Swizz Beatz, over the July 24-25 weekend.
But Swizz confirmed to OK! Magazine that the wedding was not planned for last weekend. Instead, the couple headed out to Russell Simmons's East Hampton pad on Saturday for the 11th Annual Art for Life benefit. Swizz said that the wedding will happen soon, but that it won’t be a "superstar" or "gimmicky" wedding. A pregnant Alicia tweeted last Thursday: "Trying on dresses with mama, ladies time is so essential and FUN!!" So, the wedding is definitely imminent, but details are being kept under wraps.
One detail that is certain? Swizz plans to be a hands-on groom! "I’m a planner!" he admits. "I like getting into the detail of things...[I like] being involved with the wedding. I’m not the person who sits back and goes, okay, well I’ll just show up. I’m actually spearheading certain plans but it’s a nice blend, a nice partnership.”
