Swizz Beatz Urges Men To Stop Being Jealous Of Their Successful Wives

"I can't stand to see brother jealous of the lady they're with, that sh*t is very weak."

In 2006, Alicia Keys took a solo trip to Egypt to clear her head from the pressures of fame. The spiritual journey proved to have a lasting effect on the 15-time Grammy-winning artist as she and husband Swizz Beatz went onto name their first son after the African country.

Now, the Deans have ventured back to Egypt for a family vacation and are soaking up the son and rich history of the beloved country. Documenting their time abroad, Swizz Beatz took to Instagram Wednesday (Aug. 29) to post a picture with his wife. In the photo, Swizz is seen standing while holding an umbrella to shield Alicia, who's sitting, from the sun rays. The chivalrous act proved to go hand-in-hand with the sentiment of the caption.

"Attention all men. You shouldn't be jealous or upset if you have a queen that's successful, smarter or better than you," Swizz captioned. "What you should do is thank the Most High or step your game up. I can't stand to see brothers jealous of the lady they're with, that sh*t is very weak. Ladies, keep doing you."

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz recently celebrated eight years of marriage on July 31, and fans of the couple know every year they vacation to an exotic location to celebrate the day they said: "I do."

Swizz's caption also inspired Tyrese to respond in agreeance. The Fast & Furious actor said his wife, Samantha Lee, who he wed in 2017, has also drastically changed his life for the better.

"The realest of talk," Tyrese captioned. "My wife has clearly took me up on so many levels."

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.
