Of course Sandrarose.com broke this story wide open back in 2007. But Radaronline.com and Star magazine think they have the exclusive:
Jay-Z is not about to become a father for the first time, it turns out, as the Girls Girls Girls singer has a secret son with a Trinidadian model, according to the father of the man originally identified as the love child's father, who sat down for an exclusive interview with this week's edition of Star.
The world gasped last month when the Big Pimpin' singer's wife, Beyonce Knowles, showed off her baby bump at the MTV Video Music Awards, but Andrews exclusively told Star the Empire State Of Mind rapper gave Trinidadian model Shenelle Scott a baby bump some nine years before.
Andrews, the father of Shenelle's ex-boyfriend Malik Sayeed, told Star exclusively that "at the time [he] was born, my son Malik thought he was his child, but they did DNA tests. "It's been determined that [the child is] Jay-Z's baby."
A source told Star that while Beyonce was initially livid about the secret son, she's stood by her husband. The boy closely resembles the 99 Problems singer, who's reportedly paying Shenelle child support. Malik, whose name was originally listed on the boy's birth certificate, came to find out about the child's real paternity, a source told Star.
After undergoing a DNA test that showed Jay-Z is the father, Malik kicked Shenelle out of his house, while Jay-Z made arrangements for mother and son to go back to Trinidad, where they now live comfortably on the rapper's dime.
"Shenelle told me that Jay-Z gave her $1 million to keep her mouth shut," Jerald tells Star. "My understanding is that he's paying her child support. Shenelle took the money and bought herself a really nice house in Trinidad that the whole family lives in now."
