According to a report in The National Enquirer, Jay – real name Shawn Corey Carter – is currently being sued by 21-year-old Rymir Satterthwait, who claims to be his son.
Court documents uncovered in the report show that the 45-year-old rapper was sued by Satterthwait (via his legal guardian) in 2014.

Satterthwait – who is said to be an aspiring rapper – allegedly told a court in New Jersey that his mother Wanda had an affair with Carter in the 1990s.
The National Enquirer also reports that Carter is accused of lying to the court to avoid taking a paternity test.
DailyMail.Com has reached out to representatives for the rapper who have so far been unavailable for comment.

In 2011, the rapper denied reports that he had fathered a different child with a model named Shenelle Scott.
Carter – who has one child Blue Ivy with wife Beyoncé – was linked to the Trinidad model by a man who had been wrongly identified as the father of the child.
But representatives for the rapper said there was ‘no truth to these ridiculous rumours’ at the time.

Meanwhile, The Enquirer claims in the report that Satterhwaite – via his legal guardian – filed the civil lawsuit against Carter in December last year.
His legal guardian, a paralegal named Lillie Coley claims Carter and his lawyer Lise Fisher provided ‘fraudulent’ and ‘false’ information to a judge leading to the case being dismissed, according to the report.
In October last year, rumours began surfacing of trouble in Carter’s marriage to Beyoncé after CCTV in a elevator showed getting into a fight with her sister Solange Knowles.
