Beyonce and Jay-Z’s marriage is teetering on the edge of the divorce as the couple feel the strain of the rapper’s ongoing underage sex scandal.
Sources tell RadarOnline the power couple are now ‘living separate lives’ as the rapper fights tooth and nail to avoid a DNA test to prove whether he is the father of his teen lover’s son.
Rymir Satterthwaite, now 23, is allegedly the result of a steamy 1992 affair between a 22-year-old Jay-Z an his mother Wanda, who was a teenager at the time.
Having started court proceedings in 2010 in a bid to prove the rap mogul is his dad, Rymir says he will not give up his fight.
‘I will not stop until justice is served in court,’ he tells the website.
‘Everybody deserves a fair due process in a court of law. For the past six years, me, my godmother, my mother and my entire family have been fighting really, really hard against very, very strong opposition.’
Indeed, while the rap stars hotshot legal team have so far been able to keep the DNA proceedings at bay, sources say the strain is becoming too much to bear for his wife of eight years.
‘Jay and Bey’s marriage is blowing up,’ says an insider. ‘They’re living separate lives. They haven’t made an official announcement because Bey isn’t ready.’
