Jay Z Alleged Son Speaks Out

RadarOnline.com sat down with superstar Jay Z’s alleged love child in shocking new tell-all interview!

“It was a big case to me because I really wanted to find out who my father was,” revealed Rymir Satterthwaite, the 21-year-old who filed a civil lawsuit against the rapper last December in a bid to force him to take a paternity test.

Unfortunately, Satterthwaite told Radar, he and his mom Wanda Satterthwaite, who also had a claim against Jay Z in 2010, were legally and financially unprepared to deal with the enormity of their cases.

Rumor has it that Jay Z left New York for LA to avoid other paternity suits. Jay Z already has a teenage son, Isa, whom he sired with a former video model, and an infant daughter with a woman in Texas — where Beyonce is from.
