The man who accused Jay-Z of having a secret love child with model Shenelle Scott has now backtracked part of his statement, saying that he is not aware of any DNA evidence confirming the rapper as the father.
Shenelle's ex-boyfriend Malik Sayeed initially believed he was the father but he claimed the baby looked nothing like him, and his father Jerald Andrews told Star magazine that they then took a DNA which confirmed Jay as the father.
However, Jerald has now told another publication that he is in fact not aware of any DNA test taking place. "I know Shenelle, but I've never spoken to her or my son about this. They're very priavte people," he told The Daily News.
"The stuff about the DNA test was on the internet. It's all from an old article on the internet. I don't know if it's true."
Simultaneously, Jay's reps have released a statement claiming that the rumours are false. "There is no truth to these ridiculous rumours," the rep told Allhiphop.com. "People should be ashamed of using this kind of story and exploiting a child for publicity and ratings."
