anyone who knows me knows that Jay-Z is my arch nemesis.
and i didn’t choose this life, it chose me. for years i would tell folks that i simply wasn’t a fan and would be met with harsh words and blood curdling stares… this was B$ i actually started to loathe him…
then, after years (no, seriously, YEARS) of being beaten down because i wasn’t a crazed “fan”, i started 2 take a harsher position, simply to counteract all the animosity that Jay-Z’s CULT FAN FOLLOWING hurled at me…
mind u, i don’t actually KNOW Jay-Z, so i don’t “hate” him persay… he just irks me.
now that u understand WHY he’s my arch nemesis…
i wanna know the truth about this secret lovechild thing.
the rumors about the child are making the internet rounds again, partly because of a possibly fabricated story of an interview that he “allegedly” gave recently. and i’m straddling the fence on this one… I mean, yes, the kid was born in the “pre-Bey-Z” days, but hmmm…
some of the backstory:
… the fiercely private rapper – who’s worth an estimated $400 million – reportedly has a secret 7-year-old son who he’s amazingly managed to hide from the limelight all this time. The boy apparently bears a striking resemblance to his father and is the result of Jay-Z’s romance with Trinidadian model Shenelle Scott which ended in 2001, before he met Beyoncé.
Jay-Z has gone to great lengths to distance himself from the claims, despite reports that he’s privately admitted paternity. Beyoncé, whom he married in April 2008, is now apparently accepting of the boy and is even said to have gone on holiday with her stepson in the South of France.
Although Jay-Z’s spokesman denied that there was any truth in ‘these ridiculous rumours’, the rebuttal falls short of a denial that the rap star is the boy’s father. Despite approaching Jay-Z’s representatives repeatedly last week, they refused to comment.
Sources say that Shenelle and her son live a quiet life in Trinidad at a $2.5 million home that Jay-Z bought for them after paternity tests revealed a positive match. It’s also thought that Shenelle, 28, brings her son to see Jay-Z in New York, where he’s based, whenever she flies there for modeling assignments.
The part that makes me go, “hmmm” is that people think he couldn’t POSSIBLY deny the child simply because he’s a millionaire. i say that is PRECISELY the reason to hide it. when the reposrts of him having a child first surfaced in 2002, he was at the top of his game. the ladies loved him, the men loved him… that would have been an awkward time to reveal he had gotten one of his video chix preggers… and then, once the ball was in motion, if it ever came out that he paid her to lie about their child, he would look like an ass and be hurt in the public eye… hey. it happens.
so wut do you think?
