Woman At The Center Of The Jay-Z Paternity Suit Has Theft Convictions, Kicked Out Of Philly Project

The woman whose son slapped Jay-Z with a paternity suit is a convicted thief who was evicted from her Philadelphia housing project over her $57 a month rent, Bossip can reveal.

Cops nabbed Wanda Satterthwaite, 38, in 2010 for pilfering from a store, and she later pled guilty to retail theft and criminal conspiracy. She got two years of probation, and other charges – receiving stolen property and possession of an instrument of crime with intent – were dropped, Pennsylvania court records obtained by Bossip show.

Satterthwaite’s son, Rymir, believes his mom had sex with Jay-Z, and that the rap mogul is his dad. Rymir’s foster mother, Lillie Coley, filed the lawsuit on behalf of the 21-year-old, and the two now live together.

If Hov is indeed proven to be Rymir’s father, it would be a come up for the Satterthwaite family. Matriarch Wanda Satterthwaite has been in a years-long eviction battle with Philadelphia housing officials for not paying her $57 a month rent in the Johnson Homes housing project.

Satterthwaite’s eviction troubles began back in 2008, when the city housing officials moved to kick her out for not paying $22 in back rent. A judge later dismissed the case.

But the woman at the center of the Jay-Z paternity suit was hauled back in court in 2012, when the housing authority accused her of not paying $29 in back rent, court records show. A Philadelphia judge booted Satterthwaite from her apartment in the Johnson Homes project and ordered her to pay $95 in back rent. But nearly four months later a lawyer for the city’s Housing Authority said Satterthwaite still hadn’t moved out.

Satterthwaite apparently didn’t learn her lesson, because she fell back on her rent again in 2013 after she paid just $22 in rent from March to July 2013. A judge ordered she again be served with eviction papers and ordered her to pay $618 in back rent and late fees.

Rymir and Wanda Satterthwaite did not return Bossip’s calls for comment.
