UK Tabloid Stirs Up Old Rumors of Jay-Z’s Mystery Child
Jay-Z may be living in holy matrimony with longtime love Beyonce, but if the two have a child, it won't be his first. According to reports, the 39-year-old mogul fathered a son back in 2001 with a model named Shanelle Scott. Although this isn't the first time this story has come up, a UK tabloid claims to have evidence legitimizing the assertion.
Jay apparently met Scott long before his relationship with Beyonce and broke up with her before the child was born. Scott and her son allegedly reside in Trinidad in a $2.5 million home purchased for her by Jay.
The Brooklyn born rapper's representative has long denied the claims noting that there is "no truth to these ridiculous rumors." However, his rep has refused to comment on the tabloid's latest allegation.
The boy is believed to be 7-years-old and comes to visit Jay whenever Smith is in New York for modeling gigs.
Since getting together in 2003, Jay and Beyonce rarely comment on their relationship. Their 2008 wedding was also kept under wraps. The ceremony, which took place in the rapper's New York City loft, was an intimate affair attended by the couple's close family and friends.
