Rapper Jay Z has been asked to take a paternity test by a 22-year-old claiming to be his love child.
Rymir Satterthwaite has claimed that the 46-year-old American star had a relationship with his mother Wanda back in the 1990s. It is not known whether there is any truth to these allegations but a DNA test would end speculation about whether Jay Z is really his biological father.
Rymir is now taking his case to federal court to try and force Jay Z, who is married to Beyonce, to take test.
He said in an interview with Radar Online: “I will not stop until justice is served in court. Everybody deserves a fair due process in a court of law.”
Jay Z’s real name is Shawn Corey Carter and Rymir has allegedly been trying to prove he is his father since 2011.
This is not the first time Jay Z, who has a daughter with Beyonce, has been involved in a paternity row. Back in 2011 he denied reports that he had fathered a child with Shenelle Scott, a model from Trinidad.
His representatives dismissed the rumours as “ridiculous”.
Five famous paternity disputes
Of course, Jay Z is not the first celebrity to be involved in a dispute over paternity. Here is our list of famous faces who have taken a DNA test:
- Boris Becker
The tennis star ended up at the centre of a £3.3 million paternity suit after a waitress claimed he had fathered her child during an encounter in a broom cupboard at the restaurant Nobu in February 1999. At first the three-time Wimbledon champion denied being the father of Anna but his paternity was confirmed by DNA tests. In February 2001, Boris Becker released a statement saying: “I do accept the fatherhood. I take responsibility and will care for little Anna.”
- Steve Bing
American millionaire Steve Bing famously asked actress Elizabeth Hurley for a paternity test when she announced she was pregnant with his child. When her son Damian was born in April 2002, paternity tests proved he was his biological father.
- Mick Jagger
While the Rolling Stones frontman was in a relationship with Jerry Hall, he had a brief encounter with Brazilian model Luciana Morad. She gave birth to her son Lucas in May 1999 and DNA tests showed Mick Jagger was the father. Jagger and Hall separated soon after the results were revealed.
- Eddie Murphy
Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown (known as Mel B) became pregnant in 2006 and claimed American movie star Eddie Murphy was the father. He initially refused to acknowledge he was the father of her daughter Iris until his paternity was proved by a DNA test in 2007.
- Jude Law
DNA tests proved actor Jude Law was the father of a little girl conceived during a 2008 fling with model Samantha Burke.
