London, Sept 15 (ANI): It has been claimed that Jay-Z allegedly fathered a secret love child with Trinidad model Shenelle Scott.

According to Star magazine, the 41-year-old rapper fathered a young boy nine years ago with the model and is still in contact with her, also giving her child support.

Malik Sayeed had been wrongly identified as the child's father, but DNA reports proved that the '99 Problems' singer is the child's biological father.

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, the Daily Mail quoted Sayeed's father Jerard Andrews as saying.

Sayeed's friends forced him to get a paternity test after the baby's arrival as Scott had been seen around Jay-Z.

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, a source told the magazine.

Everyone knew she was sleeping around and sleeping with Jay. There was a good chance it was his, the source added.

A source told the magazine that the child posses many of Jay-Z's features, and that the rap mogul is currently paying Scott child support, and that he even helped the new mother set up a home in Trinidad to raise the child. (ANI)
