Jay Z has been on the mind of 21-year-old Rymir Satterthwaite, and not for typical reasons. Rymir believes Jay Z could be his father.
In December 2014, Rymir filed a lawsuit to force 45-year-old Jay Z to take a paternity test to prove once and for all whether he is the father of Satterthwaite, according to the Inquisitr. Satterthwaite’s mother, Wanda Satterthwaite, claims she was once romantically involved with Jay Z in the 90s, long before Beyoncé became Mrs. Carter. In fact, the whole affair allegedly happened years before Jay Z became a superstar.
However, Rymir and Wanda were completely unprepared for the financially difficult and lengthy court battle ahead. Jay Z never had to take a paternity test, and the big question went unanswered. The case proved to be too big too handle for Rymir and his mother at the time, but now Rymir is ready for the truth.
In an interview with Radar Online, Satterthwaite claims his mother’s health has been the new driving force behind his need to know whether Jay Z is his father or not.
“It is important that I know who my biological father is because of my mom’s health. In the future you don’t know what can happen.”
Wanda suffers from genetic conditions, such as asthma and a weak heart, and Rymir would like to know more about his family’s medical history.
It hasn’t been easy on Rymir, who says that he gets “frustrated” and “mad at certain times.” Needing to know who his father is hasn’t taken over his life, though. Rymir is an aspiring rapper who has his own life to live.
“I really try not to think about it and go on with my life — anything could happen but I still got to live for myself. At the end of the day I still gotta work and bring income in for me. I just take one day at time and plan my life.”
Satterthwaite claims he doesn’t want Jay Z’s money, who is estimated to be worth around $520 million, but just wants the truth.
Jay Z and his wife, Beyoncé, have one child together, Blue Ivy Carter.
