Remember when Beyonce told everybody who was nominated for an award at the MTV VMAs to fuck off because it was her night by announcing she was pregnant with Jay-Z‘s baby on the red carpet? Then you remember how tabloids said it was the first child for both? A 9-year old boy in Trinidad who needs Spanx for his nose would like to have a word. Daily Mail reports:
The 41-year-old rapper, who has been married to the Crazy In Love singer for three years, allegedly has a secret son. The 99 Problems singer reportedly fathered a young boy nine years ago with Trinidad model Shenelle Scott (this chick), according to Star magazine. Jerard Andrews says his son Malik Sayeed was wrongly identified as the father, and DNA tests prove that Jay-Z is the boy’s biological dad. ‘At the time [he] was born, my son Malik thought he was his child, but they did DNA tests,’ he told the publication. ‘It’s been determined that [the child is] Jay-Z’s baby.’ According to the magazine, friends urged Sayeed to get a paternity test after the baby’s arrival because Scott had been seen around Jay-Z. ‘Malik threw [Shenelle] a baby shower and bought all this stuff to prepare for the arrival,’ a source told the magazine. ‘However, after the baby was born, friends and family told him he needed to get a DNA test. ‘Everyone knew she was sleeping around and sleeping with Jay,’ the source added. ‘There was a good chance it was his. ‘Confirmation that Sayeed was not the father reportedly came two weeks later, when paternity test results allegedly determined the boy was Jay-Z’s. ‘Maybe two weeks later, he called me and said, “Daddy, I got some bad news. [He’s] not my son,”‘ Andrews told the publication. ‘I said, ‘How do you know, Malik?’ He said, “He doesn’t look anything like me!” ‘A source told the magazine that the child shares many of Jay-Z’s features, and that the rap mogul is currently paying Scott child support. He is said to have even helped the new mother set up a home in Trinidad to raise the child. ‘Shenelle told me that Jay-Z gave her $1 million to keep her mouth shut,’ Jerald told Star.
So to recap, Jay-Z knocked up some model then gave her a $1M to pretend he didn’t get her pregnant then she tricked some other dude into thinking he was the father. Sounds like a Tyler Perry movie. Anyway, I just hope Jay-Z and his son can reunite one day. Maybe Jay-Z can visit his school during Field Day. I’m sure winning the blue ribbon in the “Who Can Breathe The Most Air In This Room?” race would be a nice bonding experience.
