Jay-Z Has A Secret Son

September 15th, 2011 // 64 Comments

Apparently, Beyonce isn’t carrying Jay-Z‘s firstborn, according to a new report that claims nine years ago he secretly knocked up a Trinidadian model Shenelle Scott who tried to convince her boyfriend Malik the baby was his only to have that plan blow up and earn her a million dollars in hush money. Via RadarOnline:

“Maybe two weeks later, he called me and said, ‘Daddy, I got some bad news. [He’s] not my son,’” Andrews told Star. “I said, ‘How do you know, Malik?’ He said, ‘He doesn’t look anything like me!’”
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.”
Jerald told Star that Shenelle has told him her current relationship with the rapper “is amicable.”

But don’t.. don’t all black guys have a secret son? *jumps out window*

    Come on, the term “hush money” is so fucking loaded. Now we’re giving men shit for stepping up and providing for their kids?? laaame

    • Dan

      A million dollars is “providing for you kid?”

    • Carrie

      Agreed. If I was her, I wouldn’t want the media knowing either. I’d do as she doing and living quietly and comfortably on a Caribbean island.

    • Alex

      I don’t like this rapper just as much as the next tax-paying citizen, but I agree with you. Now we knock guys for actually owning up to bastard children?

    • Brooke

      It’s called “hush money” because he paid her to keep quiet… She’d get child support anyway with proof he’s the father, but that extra million keeps her from going around saying she fathered his bastard child.

  3. Andy

    He’s now classified as a lighter-skinned black, because he does have a bastard child (black) but he pays child support (not-black).

  4. I guess that’s the reason he only has 99 problems…

  5. meh

    ..and we all have to go to sites like TMZ to actually see pictures of this model! Good job at keeping the page views Fish!

  6. Phil Aasheeo

    Thought he was gay the whole time !…

  7. Steelerchick

    Wonder if he wants a secret daughter? Please send cheque to…….

  8. Frank Burns

    Jigga what? No really, Jay-Z and Schwarzenegger’s kids should get together and do buddy comedies for Disney, where they act out a lot because they have no parents, because Jesus didn’t love them enough to give them proper parents.

  9. Dick

    Pfft. Who doesn’t?

  10. Venom

    Not really news.
    This story has been around for years and years.
    For some reason it is important now that Beyonce is pregnant.
    He bought her and the boy a huge house years ago.

    Shocker black guy with a bastard child

    • Venom

      I did not know that Steve Bing (billionaire father of Elzabeth Hurley’s child), Flavio Briatore (super rich father of Heidi Klum’s daughter), Francois Henri Pinault (billionaire father of Linda Evangelista’s son), Gavin Rossdale, Steve Jobs and even Benjamin Franklin were black. Good to know.

      • I wonder if he also looks like a camel.

      • Kevin

        lol that is the same response I get when I say women haven’t invented anything. Someone names 2 or 3 things that women have invented and that proves my point even more. 2 or 3 things out of EVERYTHING. The fact that you can name most of the examples kind of proves his point…I bet you couldn’t name a fraction of black guys with a bastard child.

      • Venom

        We are dealing with celebrities and rich people here moron.
        The world is filled with people of all races that have children out of wedlock.
        And since we are throwing out stereotypes, go to an abortion clinic and see what the predominant color of the girls there are.

      • Cupcake

        If your point is that the predominant color of the girls at an abortion clinic are white it is because most black chicks don’t know what an abortion is and pop out 20 children even though they can’t afford it and live off of welfare.

      • Kevin

        @Venon Before you call me a moron you should read the original post. “Shocker black guy with a bastard child”
        That says nothing about rich people or celebs. In regards to your specific comment why don’t you take into consideration NFL and NBA players. They are “rich” and Ray Lewis said in response to the question “why do so many NFL players have children out of wedlock” he responded because we are children out of wedlock. Even rich black people fit the stereotype…that’s why it’s a stereotype…

      • Venoms fat wife

        Now Venom honey…

        you know when were on vacationin in our trailer NEAR Boca youre not supposed to be usin all the dialin up minutes. We dont have enough pesos to pay for the weekly lot rent, all this mac n cheez, raman noodles, ketchup AND them dialin up minutes.

        Besides, my Momma sure was right callin you the stupidest person she done ever met since Al Gore screwed her at the NJ WOP parade…everyone you done listed was white/ NOT black…and BILLIONAIRES. Hah…thanks for provin another point hun.

  12. OK

    Jay-Z has a secret, son. He has a secret son!

  13. big deal i have a secret son too, he’s 28. dammit now it’s not a secret anymore

  14. Cock Dr

    It’s just my opinion but when you take away all the bling, designer clothes & furs, wigs, and makeup Jay-Z & the bodacious Beyonce aren’t very attractive.
    Jay-Z is downright homely.
    But sprinkle that gold dust money magic all over him & suddenly things change.
    I wonder what that feels like to know that anyone that you have sex with isn’t really interested in you, just your cashflow.

    • me

      they’re representative of what happens when you sell your soul to the devil aka: illuminati

    • gumption

      truer words have never been spoken. beyonce is fug without all the drag and the plastic surgery (nose, lips, boobs)…and j-z is yuck. Someone told me last night “black people embrace big lips unlike you guys so we think jay-z is handsome”. wtf? There are plently of attractive black people, jay-z is just not one of them! he then followed-up with “his money makes him attractive”. I am convinced many people are retarded.

      • Brooke

        I had a black roommate who always made fun of white people for having big noses. “Y’all weren’t made for kissin’. Y’all gotta tilt your heads to the side a bit before you can kiss anyone, but black folk lips are bigger than our noses, so we don’t have to tilt our heads to kiss.” She had given the subject a lot more thought than I had, but I couldn’t really tell her she was wrong so I just accepted it as the absolute truth and went back to tilting my head when I kiss people.

        And while that had almost nothing to do with anything, I agree, Jay-Z is not very attractive. He always looks really old to me. I think Beyonce is pretty though, even if it’s artificial and I can barely recognize her from her older photos.

      • True

        I’m Black…I’m disgusted at Jay-Z’s big lips. It seems like his breath might stink bad. Now sometimes big lips can be sexy…but, Jay-Z? AAANT wrong answer.

    • I’ve gotten used to it.

  15. I don’t know much about Trinidad, but something tells me a million bucks buys a NICE house there.

  16. Suddenly, Jay-Z’s next Father’s Day got a whole lot busier.

  17. me

    okay, seriously, why is it news when a man fathers a child out of wedlock??? Not saying that it’s right, but anymore it’s a part of life. Stories like these put the kids to shame that didn’t ask to be brought into the world by horny, careless people…. but jeez….. at least he’s providing whether it be hush money…. however, he should father that child and not just by handing over the cash. BTW, JayZ looks as if sombody beat him with an “ugly stick”. Bleh.

  18. OnTheRealThough

    The kid looks a lot like him too. You can find the pics on the net. I’d assume Beyonce has known about this from him tho.

    • gumption

      of course she knows, she is just going to be mad that everyone else knows now. she is one phoney broad with the corniest music ever. I listened to 45min of Zeppelin in an mri machine and they had to pry me out because I wanted to die in there and never see Lady CaCa , beiber, beyonce or jay-z again. Why did Tupac have to go so soon, whhhhhhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy????????????

  19. Black male has kids all over the place….what’s so secret or surprising about that?

  20. tommy effing salami

    Bet the son looks like a young Joe Camel.

  21. forrest gump

    you can find him at the zoo.

  22. I liked the comment from Ms. Scott – “My, coochie remains in a Gucci name” when asked about what she was doing with the hush money.

    What Black Man doesn’t have a few extra babies here and there ! Ain’t no big thang!

  26. Elf

    I can just imagine the scene when he told his son this: Jay: “Gangsta-Wan never told you what happened to your father.” Son: “He told me enough. He told me that you killed him in that drug deal years ago.” Jay: “No. I am your father!” Son: “Mother fucking God! Nooooooo! Nooooooooooooo!”

    Jay’s verse from “Moon and the Sky” remix with Sade:

    I know we could have had it all
    I wasn’t ready to go steady no not at all
    Smoke and mirrors clouded my vision we hit a wall
    Couldn’t see the moon and the sky behind the fog
    Pregnant pause
    Damn your baby tall, what you been up to
    I don’t blame you my doll
    Yeah, we kinda stalled
    As God as my witness, timin’ was my mistress
    I guess it’s in the stars for me to love you from a distance
    Uh, our ship sail, uh, the wind blows
    The door’s always open but our window was closed
    You always thought “What if?”
    But that’ll just drive you crazy baby, girl interrupted
    Thinkin’ ’bout what wasn’t
    Thinkin’ ’bout what was it?
    Was it somethin’ I done?
    Somethin’ I could do better although nothin’ could be done
    Sometimes you get what you need
    Now what you think you want?
    So baby no moon and sky, got a beautiful sun (son)

    • CranAppleSnapple

      And this guy gets paid? For music?

    • True

      Damn so he actually talks about his bastard son in his lyrics? Wow. I never would’ve picked up on that..
      ” Pregnant Pause
      Damn, your baby’s tall…” so, he’s telling Shenelle that he’s seen the kid at 9 (now) and his getting pretty big. Jay-Z, you’re an ass. Don’t make rap songs about your son. Go visit him. Don’t send him love…go HAND DELIVER IT to him.

  28. Donald Trump

    I’d let him bang me for a cool mill. But damn JayZ looks like a retarded gorilla.

  29. hjhj

    This website is garbage. Was giving it a chance but it’s rotting my brain with bullshit. It’s mostly made-up negative, nasty bulllshittttt.

    Unless Jay had a separate DNA test w/ the kid then it wouldn’t just pop up during the Malik guys DNA test with the kid, “Op! it’s Jay-Z’s kid! see it says right here!”

    SO DUMB.
