Rapper Jay-Z, who has been married to Beyonce for three years, may not have to wait until she gives birth to be a dad, there are reports that he allegedly has a secret love child.
According to Star magazine. Jay-Z reportedly fathered a young boy nine years ago with Trinidad model Shenelle Scott.
Jerard Andrews says that his son Malik Sayeed was wrongly identified as the father of Scott's child, and DNA tests prove that Jay-Z is the boy's biological dad.
Andrews told the magazine: "At the time (he) was born, my son Malik thought he was his child, but they did DNA tests. It’s been determined that (the child is) Jay-Z’s baby.'
"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-Z. There was a good chance it was his."
"Shenelle told me that Jay-Z gave her $1 million to keep her mouth shut," Andrews told the magazine. "My understanding is that he’s paying her child support. Shenelle took the money and bought herself a really nice house in Trinidad that the whole family lives in now."
Star magazine also reports that Jay-Z's wife Beyonce, who is currently pregnant with their child, is aware of the boy and, while furious, has come to accept it.
A spokesperson for Jay-Z did not immediately respond to comment when contact by Mail Online.
