Aren’t tired of hearing this old story with Trinidadian model Shenelle Scott and Jay-Z and his “mystery child?” My heart goes out to the chick. She can’t seem to get a break!
Yet again the rumor has reared its ugly head and only because Bey is now pregnant with Jay’s baby.
Apparently, allegedly, the father of Shenelle’s ex-boyfriend Malik Sayeed reached out to Star magazine claiming that Jay-Z was indeed the father of his grandson, even going as far as to say they had DNA tests to prove it. However, Grampa Andrews is now allegedly is backpedaling on his story.
Andrews reported told Star:
“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.”
“Malik threw [Shenelle] a baby shower and bought all this stuff to prepare for the arrival. However, after the baby was born, friends and family told him he needed to get a DNA test. Everyone knew she was sleeping around and sleeping with Jay. There was a good chance it was his.
“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!’
“Shenelle told me that Jay-Z gave her $1 million to keep her mouth shut. 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.
“She says he’s a good father and he has a lot of interest in [the boy]. It was a big old mess at one time, but I think once they resolved the issue of fatherhood, of paternity, I think things started to level off.”
However, reports are now stating that after the NY Daily News contacted ‘Andrews,’ he switched up his story.
“I know Shenelle, but I’ve never spoken to her or my son about this. They’re very private people. The stuff about the DNA test was on the Internet. It’s all from an old article on the Internet,” he said. “I don’t know if it’s true.”
“The house wasn’t purchased by Jay-Z. It was paid for by her present husband.”
Back in 2007, Jay spoke on the rumor, denying all allegations and saying it’s a classic case of exploitation:
“There is no truth to these ridiculous rumors. People should be ashamed of using this kind of story and exploiting a child for publicity and ratings.”
Well, sources revealed to us that Shenelle’s Scott son was fathered by international Trinidadian footballer Stern John. Shenelle….you just hold tight to that secret hun. Doh worry about us fass people!
Do you believe that Shenelle’s Scott’s baby daddy is Jay Z?
