A 30-year-old man claiming to be the son of Jay-Z has now filed a Supreme Court motion to reveal the ‘truth’.
Since he was 21, Rymir Satterthwaite has been fighting to prove the legendary rapper is his biological father.
Now, he’s bringing his case to the Supreme Court, hoping they will force HOV to take a DNA test to provide Rymir with the confirmation he desperately craves.
But, according to the 30-year-old, he wants nothing from the hitmaker - no money, no yachts, no mansions - all he wants is for ‘justice to be served’.
He told the Daily Mail: “This is not going to be over until justice is served. I just want to live my life and, when it is all said and done, I hope that Jay-Z would want to be a part of my life, if that is God's will.
“I won't stop fighting for this until I win. And I will win because the law is on our side.”
This isn’t the first time Rymir has taken legal action against Jay-Z.
In 2016, he filed a lawsuit against Jay-Z, claiming that he was his father and demanded a paternity test.
Ultimately, the case was dismissed by a judge in New Jersey, citing a lack of jurisdiction.
Rymir claims his late mother Wanda had slept with the rapper when she was 16 and he was 22, which is well before he achieved global fame.
According to the filing, the romance was short-lived as Wanda was still with her high school sweetheart, who was by Wanda’s side when she gave birth in the hospital, as per the Daily Mail.
As a result, he was listed as Rymir’s biological father on his birth certificate.
However, in 2010, Robert took a paternity test which proved that Rymir wasn’t his offspring and, the following year, Wanda granted custody of her son to his godmother, Lillie.
Lillie vowed that he would find out who Rymir’s birth father is and even contacted Jay-Z's attorney, Lise Fisher, and asked that he take a DNA test.
However, Jay-Z and his team didn’t comply.
In 2012, Rymir and his godmother decided to pursue legal action, which has spanned over 10 years.
In a statement to Daily Mail, Jay-Z's attorneys denied these claims, writing: “The allegations have been previously reviewed thoroughly by the courts and have been refuted. I am sure that will be the outcome of whatever filings Mr. Satterthwaite is may be currently considering.”
