AceShowbiz - Jay-Z is facing a paternity suit filed by a 21-year-old aspiring rapper named Rymir Satterthwaite. According to court papers, filed in New Jersey in December 2014 through his godmother Lillie Coley, obtained by National Enquirer, Rymir claimed his mother Wanda had "steamy sex sessions" with Jay-Z in the early 1990s.
In his suit, Rymir accused Beyonce Knowles' husband of "blatantly lying to a court to avoid taking a paternity test." Court papers show the paternity fight dates back in June 2010 when Wanda first named Jay-Z as a possible father to her son after another man named Robert Graves who was believed to be Rymir's father since birth was not his biological father.
Wanda then tried to force Jay-Z to submit to a DNA test but failed because the case was dismissed by the court due to the lack of jurisdiction over the rapper.
In the December suit, Lillie accused Jay-Z and his lawyer Lise Fisher of providing "fraudulent" and "false" information to a judge. Lillie claimed the rapper lied about his address to avoid paternity test. Jay-Z reportedly told the court that he lives in Manhattan, not in New Jersey where he reportedly owns three houses.
Lillie told New York Daily News that the family was surprised that the news emerged this week even though the fight goes back five years. "Right now I can't talk to you about it," she said, "We plan to talk to the public soon. All this attention caught us off guard. We didn't expect someone to leak it to the press. We weren't expecting this."
Jay-Z's representative has not commented on the issue yet, while Rymir tweeted on Thursday, February 19, "Trying to stay positive."
