They say age is just a number, but for some celebs it’s a number they’re not quite willing to accept.
In the past, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Agyness Deyn and countless other famous faces have been sprung subtracting (or in rare cases, adding) digits to their life development. And it’s now alleged that Jay-Z, husband of Queen Bey and father to the most jet-setting two-year-old on the planet, has been bluffing about his 44 years since he was, well… "43".
Radio host Troi Torain, who calls himself an ‘age mate’ of Jay (whatever that is), says that hip-hop’s greatest rapper – Jay’s words, not ours – is in fact the big 5-0.
"I shouldn't blow this up, maybe because he doesn't promote it publicly, but Jay-Z and I are the same age," the Star: Live and Direct host told a caller on-air.
"I will be 50 on May 3. He's 43, 42... that’s just media bull----!"
Obviously his wife doesn’t mind the 18 year age difference because she’s too busy planning world domination and being drunk in love. But Good Morning America host Bianna Golodryga revealed back in December that she reckons Beyonce isn’t even 32, she’s actually 35 - the two went to the same high school.
As people begin the hunt for Jay-Z’s fountain of youth, where friends like Pharrell and Kanye West probably go to soak (because money can buy you everything), the crazier rumours have begun swirling.
Internet conspiracy theorists have suggested that Beyonce’s sister Solange is in fact her daughter. Lying about your age, we kind of get… but that one's just ridic.
