With all the heat dropping recently, Jay-Z and Beyoncé put their hat in the ring too, releasing their joint album, Everything Is Love, to the surprise of mostly everyone on Saturday night (June 16). One song on the project finds the rapper addressing rumors that he has a secret love child.
The song in question is titled “Heard About Us,” and on the lines in question Hov raps, “Billie Jean in his prime/For the thousand time, the kid ain’t mine/Online they call me dad, kiddingly/You’re not supposed to take this dad thing literally.”
Jigga has had to fight through rumors that he fathered children on the low multiple times in the past. Most recently, an aspiring rapper named Rymir Satterthwaite claimed to be the seed of the Brooklyn bar layer. The man’s mother, Wanda, claims she slept with Hov in the 1990s and the man filed a civil lawsuit against Jay-Z in December of 2014, after Wanda tried and failed to get a judge to force the MC to take a DNA test in 2010.
In 2016, Wanda spoke out about her alleged fling with Hov and paternity suit. “I want the world to know that I support my son in his paternity suit with Shawn Corey Carter,” she said in the video interview. “I stand by my allegations regarding this man.”
Jay’s team has maintained their is no truth to the allegations.
