Rymir Satterthwaite has spent the past decade fighting to force Jay-Z to submit to a paternity test, alleging that the hip hop billionaire is his biological father. Satterthwaite plans on taking his case all the way up to the Supreme Court. Rymir recently filed a 29-page motion with the Supreme Court asking it to unseal case records dating back to 2012. Though his petition was declined, he refiled in lower courts instead. What’s at Stake for Rymir Sat.? Rymir Satterthwaite, who claims he is Jay-Z's secret son, filed a motion with the Supreme Court last week in an effort to reopen his years-old paternity case. It first started back in the early '90s when Rymir's late mother Wanda claimed she had an affair with Jay-Z; since then he has tried but without success to get him to take a paternity test for paternity testing. Court documents obtained by The Daily Mail indicate that Rymir filed a petition to reopen his case in hopes of forcing Jay-Z to take a DNA test and finally reveal his true parentage. While his lawsuit has been filed in New Jersey state court, its ultimate review lies with the Supreme Court; therefore this petition was filed on October 4th with an extensive list of allegations against both Jay-Z and his lawyers. Jay-Z's attorneys have often suggested that the court dismiss the case due to jurisdictional concerns and claimed that Rymir's mother committed fraud by providing false information in order to get Jay-Z to take a paternity test, in turn prompting child support payments as "hush money." The family has since retained a new attorney who believes the case will eventually reach federal court and should be reopened. They intend to use property deeds and tax records as evidence that Jay-Z owns property in New Jersey - this would enable them to challenge the ruling of the lower court judge. Many have accused Rymir of seeking fame and fortune by filing his lawsuit; others maintain he's simply seeking the truth and that Jay-Z should take a paternity test. No matter its outcome, this case will undoubtedly draw attention to paternity testing issues and celebrity responsibility issues; ultimately the Supreme Court will determine if his lawsuit can go to trial or be dismissed; be sure to stay tuned! What’s at Stake for Jay-Z? Jay-Z has already seen major benefits from two recent business deals, adding $320 million to his net worth via two major deals involving Armand de Brignac sold to luxury goods giant Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, and selling Tidal stake to mobile payments company Square for $297 million - becoming Forbes' 1,203rd richest person and one of 14 Black billionaires worldwide. Tidal represents a huge financial boon for Jay-Z, who invested close to $500 million into it when purchasing it from Norwegian firm Aspiro for $56 million in 2015. Unfortunately, Tidal has struggled against its larger rivals such as Spotify which boasts over 40 million subscribers. Jay-Z purchased Tidal with artist co-owners such as Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Madonna and Lil Wayne as co-owners - as well as Coldplay's Chris Martin from Coldplay and Arcade Fire's Win Butler and Regine Chassagne from Arcade Fire who all retained a stake - in mind when creating this deal; together they now form the second-largest stakeholder group under this agreement; all will continue serving on the board of Tidal. Jesse Dorogusker, an executive from Square, will assume interim control of Tidal for now; it remains unknown if Jay-Z will remain chairman. Jay-Z owns not only an ownership stake in the Brooklyn Nets but also owns and manages his entertainment management company Roc Nation, representing top performers including Rihanna and Alicia Keys, as well as athletes such as CC Sabathia and Kyrie Irving. Furthermore, this entity hosts Made in America music festival as well as operating a publishing arm and record label. Jay-Z owns several luxurious homes, such as his $88 million Bel Air mansion and $26 million East Hampton retreat, both situated near Los Angeles. Additionally, he's a minority owner of the Miami Marlins baseball team - expected to be sold soon - with which he may seek a $2.5 billion payout upon its sale. In previous attempts at purchasing teams such as New Jersey Devils or Los Angeles Clippers but was turned down by both teams' respective owners; additionally a bid to acquire Toronto Raptors had fallen through. What’s at Stake for the Court? Rymir Satterthwaite, the man claiming to be Jay-Z's son, has spent over a decade trying to force Hov into taking a paternity test. Although their case has taken many twists and turns, Satterthwaite has not had success getting him under a paternity test; therefore he's appealing directly to the Supreme Court to reveal its verdict and bring closure on this matter. Satterthwaite's mother Wanda reported to YourTango that she and Satterthwaite slept together in 1992 at his aunt's Brooklyn project apartment after he collected her from Philadelphia. According to Wanda, protection wasn't effective and she lost touch with him after becoming famous. Robert Graves was listed on his birth certificate but this was removed following DNA testing which showed he wasn't biological father of Satterthwaite. Satterthwaite had filed an action with Pennsylvania Superior Court seeking an order compelling Rapper Wanda to submit to a paternity test; however, the Supreme Court denied this request on the basis that their jurisdiction does not extend backward. His lawyers claim this matter should be heard there where Wanda originally filed it in Pennsylvania. Satterthwaite and his family have been left reeling by the Supreme Court's refusal to intervene, but this decision may have more to do with how it prioritizes cases and public trust in its institution than money alone. The Supreme Court's refusal to reopen this case shows that its Justices aren't interested in providing clarity or answering essential questions regarding America's highest court. This sets a dangerous precedent with real world ramifications for millions of Americans. Conservative voters must ensure any future nominees for the court have unambiguous records in legal opinions and writings that demonstrate they support and defend the Constitution rather than just supporting President's political ideology; otherwise it will serve only their party - not their people - which will restore faith in judiciary! What’s at Stake for the Public? Rymir Satterthwaite, who claims to be Jay Z's secret illegitimate son, has spent over a decade fighting to get Hov to take a DNA test. Satterthwaite recently took his case all the way up to the Supreme Court in hopes that its opening the sealed legal documents and forcing Hov to face up to his truth. According to Sun Online reports Satterthwaite wants justice served and not money. His attorney filed a 29-page motion that details every aspect of the years-long case. While it's a lot to take in, the basic premise is that Satterthwaite's mother Wanda claimed she had sexual relations with Jay-Z while pregnant in 1992; when Satterthwaite turned eight she told him that she believed Jay-Z to be his biological father despite only ever having had intimate encounters with two men; her high school sweetheart and Jay-Z being two possible candidates; though Robert Graves was named on his birth certificate but subsequent paternity tests proved otherwise; Satterthwaite and Lillie claim they never obtained closure over their mother's death in 2016, due to harassment by lawyers representing rapper Jay-Z and obstructing their efforts for closure. Their family filed a civil rights complaint alleging he violated their privacy rights and prevented them from finding closure. Legal battle over Lillian Satterthwaite has not been without controversy. Early this year, her guardian was arrested for allegedly conspiring with rapper 4:44's lawyers in order to keep their client out of the case and influence its outcome. Reportedly, Lillian's lawyer shared close ties with them both and collaborated in getting it dismissed from court altogether. But Jay-Z won't easily give up. His legal team insists they will fight to ensure the Supreme Court doesn't reopen his case and expose private details about his family life. They argue that Satterthwaite's claim rests on misleading evidence such as property deeds and tax records showing him as owning multiple properties.
