*Blue Ivy may have an older half-brother.
Jay Z is currently tied up in a legal battle with a 21-year-old man who claims the rap mogul is his father.
The National Enquirer says it has uncovered documents that show Shawn Corey Carter (Jay Z) was sued by 21-year-old Rymir Satterthwaite, an aspiring rapper, in 2014. Satterthwaite told a New Jersey court that his mother, Wanda, had an affair with Jay Z in the 1990s, and that HOVA has done everything in his power to cover it up.
According to the tabloid, Satterthwaite, through his legal guardian – a paralegal name Lillie Colley – accused Blue Ivy’s dad of lying to the court to avoid taking a paternity test.
In 2010, a judge dismissed a similar case in which Satterthwaite’s mother tried to force Jay Z to submit the paternity test after another man turned out not to be the young man’s father. However, The Enquirer reports that the judge dismissed the case only because he ruled that his court lacked jurisdiction over Jay Z, and not because the court concluded that he was not Satterthwaite’s biological father.
The dismissal of the case paved the road for Coley, Satterthwaite’s guardian, to file the 2014 civil lawsuit.
In the papers, obtained by The Enquirer, Coley alleges that Jay Z and his lawyer, Lisa Fisher, provided “false” and “fraudulent” information to the judge, arguing that he lied to the court when claiming that he lived in New York and not in New Jersey, where he reportedly owns three houses.
The Enquirer also points out that Satterthwaite “has been struggling to pay college and medical bills, as he said on his website – all while dealing with the trauma of profound rejection.”
This will be the second case in which the rapper is accused of fathering a child outside of wedlock. In 2011, Jay Z reportedly paid model Shanelle Scott $1 million in return for keeping his name off of a birth certificate of a son that she claimed he fathered 13 years prior.
