Jay Z Accused of Having Secret Love Child from Past Relationship

As a celebrity couple, Beyonce and Jay Z have never looked better. All rumors of a possible divorce have pretty much been squashed and the many times we see them in public, they look happy and in love. So, naturally, cue the drama. Jay Z has reportedly been slapped with a paternity suit by a 21-year-old man from New Jersey who claims his mom slept with the rapper before he was uber famous—and that Hova is his dad.

Rymir Satterthwaite reportedly claims his mother, Wanda, had a relationship with Jay Z in the early 1990s, a long time before Blue Ivy was a twinkle in his eye and either he or Beyonce were ridiculously famous.

The 45-year-old rapper is now facing a paternity lawsuit, as Satterthwaite's legal guardian, Lillie Coley, reportedly filed a suit in December 2014. Apparently, this isn't the first time Jay Z has heard about this family or the young man, as Wanda claims she tried to get him to take a paternity test in 2010—two years after he and Bey tied the knot—and because he lived in New York City and not New Jersey, the case was dismissed because the judge said he lacked jurisdiction.

Wanda had reportedly already determined that another man wasn't Satterthwaite's father after he took a DNA test, so fingers pointed toward Jay Z.

Who really knows what's going on. Jay Z's people have yet to comment, and I don't think we can expect that they will. On the one hand, it's completely possible that he had a fling or relationship with the woman who claims she raised his son because, well, why would it be? On the other hand, I'm a little surprised more male celebrities aren't told on a daily basis that they have children they don't know about.

For the sake of the young man who is unclear about his own identity, I hope Jay Z does the responsible thing here—if only to clear accusations against him (assuming he feels they are false).

Do you think Jay Z could be this young man's father? How do you think Beyonce will react if the news is true?
