A 30-year-old man is claiming to be the Jay-Z’s son.
Rumors of Jay-Z having children outside of his kids with Beyonce have been around for years. A new man has come forward claiming to be the rapper’s son and is getting some press today. Who is the man, and could there be some validity to his claims?
Rymir Satterthwaite Claims To Be Jay-Z’s Son
Rymir Satterthwaite who has been trying to get Jay-Z to take a paternity test for the last decade. Today it was reported that Rymir is taking his case to the Supreme Court in hopes of finally getting answers. Rymir is a Jersey native and claims that his mother, Wanda was intimate with Jay in the ’90s. Rymir has been trying to prove he’s the “Empire State of Mind” hitmaker’s son since he was 21 years old.
Jay-Z’s legal team has released a statement saying, “The allegations have been previously reviewed thoroughly by the courts and have been refuted.” They go on to reassure the public that the outcome of this latest filing will be the same. Rymir claims that he does not want money and just wants Jay to be a part of his life. “I won’t stop fighting for this until I win. And I will win because the law is on our side,” he told the Daily Mail today.
Rymir’s mother, Wanda, had passed away but assured her son that she and Jay-Z had an affair in 1992 when she was 16 and Jay was 22. Wanda and Jay were no longer together by the time Rymir was born, so Wanda put her high school sweetheart’s name on Rymir’s birth certificate instead of Shawn Carter.
Jay Z’s Alleged Son Files Motion
As Rymir aged, it became clear he was not the other man’s son and instead bore a striking resemblance to Jay, who would become a global rap star in 1996. When Wanda’s health began to decline in 2010, her son’s real father became something she wanted to clarify. While her high school sweetheart has since taken a paternity test and proven he is not the father, Jay-Z has yet to do so. Jay’s team is accused of exploiting the legal system to avoid complying with Rymir’s request.
