A man who told Star magazine that Jay-Z’s fathered a secret child with his grandson’s ex is now saying he made up the rumor based off of things he read online.
Jerald Andrews, 67, told Star magazine that DNA tests proved definitively that Jay-Z was the dad of the now 9-year-old kid. “At the time the baby 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,” Jerald reportedly told the tabloid.
Now, the little grandfather that could, is singing a different tune. When contacted by The Daily News on Wednesday, he said he did not have any first-hand knowledge a DNA test ever took place. “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.”
That’s some kind of a source, Star. The next time you claim an A-list star fathered a secret love child, you might want to double check your facts.
