Jay Z Gets Paternity Suit From 21-Year-Old Claiming to Be His Son
Married and doting on their daughter is part of Jay Z’s life for the past seven years now, but according to recent reports, it seems fatherhood has been on his life way before he even married Beyoncé. Now, a 21-year-old aspiring rapper has stepped up, claiming that his dad is Jay Z!
According to The National Enquirer, as cited by Radar Online, Jay Z was sued by an aspiring 21-year-old rapper named Rymir Satterthwaite, through his legal guardian and godmother Lillie Colley, back in 2014. Satterthwaite claims that his mother, Wanda, had a relationship with Jay Z, which later led to his birth. But apparently, all this time, Jay Z has been covering this up and even refuses to take a paternity test.
It was also revealed that Satterthwaite’s mother raised a similar case against Jay Z in 2010. However, the judge dismissed the case reportedly because his court lacked the jurisdiction. This led to Colley, who happens to be a paralegal, to file another lawsuit last year.
As of the moment, Jay Z, as well as his wife Beyoncé, has not yet released official statements regarding the matter. On the other hand, the New York Daily News was able to contact Colley on Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015. For her part, Colley was shocked that the news was finally made public after many years in court battle. However, she also declined to give further details on the lawsuit’s proceedings for the moment as she only wants to protect her godson.
In Mrs. Satterthwaite’s Facebook page, it was revealed that she graduated high school in Philadelphia in 1994, and her son was born the year before. As shown in legal documents, Mrs. Satterthwaite raised the paternity suit against Jay Z after DNA testing showed that another man named Robert Graves who was initially believed to be Satterthwaite’s father was in fact not his father. But for quite some time now, Graves has been giving Satterthwaite child support. Despite that, Satterthwaite is reportedly having financial problems due to college and medical bills.
