For some time now

rapper Jay-Z has been the subject of numerous rumors surrounding his personal

life. There

are the on and off rumors of Jay Z’s unfaithfulness to his current girlfriend

Beyonce with Def Jam artist Rihanna, but the most controversial of all these rumors

is the one involving 26-year-old Trinidadian model Shenelle Scott. The

rumor swarming states that Jay-Z paid Scott $1 million to keep his name off the

baby's birth certificate and to keep quiet about the child they allegedly have

together. "There

is no truth to these ridiculous rumors," a spokesperson for Jay-Z told AllHipHop.com

exclusively. “People should be ashamed of using this kind of story and exploiting

a child for publicity and ratings.” Scott

and Jay-Z met on the set of Jay Z’s video “Big Pimpin” in 1998.


to reports, the boy was born Jan. 30 2002 in Los Angeles. Pictures

of Jay-Z, Scott and their alleged child have been circulated across the internet

and printed in tabloids in recent months, sparking debates as to who the father

of the child is, despite the fact that another man's name is officially listed

on the child's birth certificate.A

few years ago there were rumors claiming that Jay-Z and former 106 & Park

host Free were having a child together. Eventually,

this rumor was proven false in a statement issued by BET. “There

is no truth to the negative rumors or conjecture being reported about the private

life or on-air status of Free,” the statement read. “She has not resigned.

Nothing has changed.”
