NJ Man Claims He’s Jay Z’s Biological Son, Files Supreme Court Motion To Prove It

A man from New Jersey claims he’s part of the royal Carter family.

As reported on Bossip, Rymir Satterthwaite, 30, accused Jay of “misusing the legal system” for a decade to avoid taking a paternity test. Satterthwaite says he’s been trying to prove he’s Hov’s “secret child” since he was 21. He’s taking the case to the NJ Supreme Court, in hopes that a judge will rule to order Jay Z to submit his DNA.

Satterthwaite told the Daily Mail he simply wants his father to acknowledge him, and not his billion-dollar fortune. He said,

“This is not going to be over until justice is served. I just want to live my life, and when it is all said and done, I hope that Jay-Z would want to be a part of my life if that is God’s will.” He continued,

“I won’t stop fighting for this until I win. And I will win because the law is on our side.”

Jay Z’s attorneys deny the claims. They responded:

“The allegations have been previously reviewed thoroughly by the courts and have been refuted. I am sure that will be the outcome of whatever filings Mr. Satterthwaite is [or] may be currently considering.”

In February, Satterthwaite filed a new motion with the NJ Supreme Court, requesting the documents be unsealed. Satterhwaite says the secured documents are hindering him from proving his case. The 29-page document was rejected, stating they had no jurisdiction to re-open it. He re-filed in the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court.

According to Satterthwaite, his late mother had a short-lived romantic relationship with Jay Z in the fall of 1992. Satterthwaite says at the time, his mother was 16, and Hov was 22, which could be why he’s avoiding the DNA test. By the time Satterthwaite was born, he says his mother, Wanda, and Jay Z fizzled down.
