Alicia, you can tell us



Alicia Keys' "secret" boyfriend isn't such a secret anymore.

Fans have been whispering about how close she is with her longtime producer, Kerry Brothers. But at the recent launch party for her second album, The Diary of Alicia Keys, the canoodling couple left little doubt.

Keys, 22, beamed as they cuddled and Brothers whispered in her ear. He didn't leave her side. And family members, when quizzed, didn't deny the romance.

Also paying their respects to the Grammy-winner were J Music maestro Clive Davis, and legendary soul singers Patti LaBelle and Jill Scott.

When asked when she's going to reveal the identity of her boyfriend, she smiled and said, "Eventually."

But in an interview with a British paper, she said she met Brothers hanging out in Greenwich Village when she was 14.
