Egypt Daoud Dean Mother: Alicia Keys
Egypt Daoud Dean’s mother, Alicia Keys, the youngest of three children, was born on January 25, 1981, in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood. Teresa Augello was a paralegal and part-time actress who was Alicia’s mother. Craig Cook was a flight attendant and one of three children from Theresa Augello.
Keys’s father is black, and her mother was born in Sicily to Italian, Irish, and Scottish parents. Her mother’s paternal grandparents were immigrants from Sciacca in Sicily and Lamezia Terme in Calabria. Keys has stated that she felt at ease with her multiracial background because she could “connect to various cultures.”
When Keys was two, her father departed, and she was subsequently raised by her mother during her formative years in Hell’s Kitchen. Her parents never had a relationship, according to Keys, and her father was not in her life.
Although she did not like to speak about her father in order to not feed stereotypes, Keys remarked in 2001: “I’m not in contact with him. That’s fine. When I was younger, I minded about that. It made me angry. But it helped show me what a strong woman my mother was, and made me want to be strong like her. Probably, it was better for me this way.”
Key’s family lived in a one-room apartment. Her mother frequently worked three jobs to ensure that Keys had food and shelter, learning “how to survive” from her mother’s example of tenacity and self-reliance.

From 2004 until 2008, Keys was in a low-profile relationship with her long-time close friend and collaborator Kerry Brothers Jr. Until that year, she had been in a steady romantic relationship with her longtime good friend and collaborator, Keryn Brothers.

Swizz Beatz was Keys’ boyfriend for a short time before their breakup in 2010.
