Paternity- Is this Jay Z’s son?


By Mirror UK

Blue Ivy might have a big brother.

A New Jersey paternity suit alleges hip hop icon Jay Z is the father of a 21-year-old aspiring rapper — and he’s trying to dodge a DNA test to determine if he is the daddy.

The godmother of Rymir Satterthwaite told the New York Daily News that the family was shocked to learn word of the suit became public this week.

“Right now I can’t talk to you about it,” she said Thursday about the lawsuit. “We plan to talk to the public soon.”

She declined to discuss the specifics, insisting she was only trying to protect her godson.

“All this attention caught us off guard,” she said. “We didn’t expect someone to leak it to the press. We weren’t expecting this.”

Satterthwaite claims his mother Wanda hooked up with Jay-Z in the early 1990s, according to the National Enquirer — long before the product of Brooklyn’s Marcy Houses became a multimillionaire recording star and music mogul.

It was also well before Jay-Z’s marriage to Beyoncé in April 2008. The celebrity couple welcomed daughter Blue Ivy on Jan 7, 2012.

Jay Z, 45, emerged over the decades since as a chart-topping, 13-time Grammy Award winner with a string of best-selling albums.

Satterthwaite’s legal guardian, a paralegal named Lillie Coley, filed the suit in a New Jersey civil court in December 2014, the Enquirer reported Wednesday.

The report indicated the paternity question was first raised at least five years ago. Wanda tried to force Jay Z to take a 2010 paternity test after it was determined that another man was not the boy’s father, according to the Enquirer report.

The case was dismissed by New Jersey Superior Court Judge Edward McBride Jr. — but only because the judge ruled that he lacked jurisdiction, according to the Enquirer.

Jay-Z’s lawyer successfully argued that the superstar lived in Manhattan, not the Garden State, according to the Enquirer.

But McBride’s decision opened the door for the civil court claim. In the civil suit, Satterthwaite’s guardian accuses Jay Z — real name Shawn Corey Carter — of providing “fraudulent” information to the judge.

The lawsuit questioned the rapper’s claim that he lives in Manhattan, since he reportedly owns real estate in New Jersey.

The suit is the latest bit of unwanted attention for Jay Z, who was famously attacked by his sister-in-law Solange Knowles inside an elevator.

The video fueled rumors that Jay Z and Beyoncé had hit a rough patch in their marriage, but in October of last year the couple reportedly renewed their vows while on holiday in Europe.
