Jay-z in 2015 has '99 Problems' and his relationship is one of them. This is the view of some entertainment fans as reports have started to surface on the Internet stating that Jay-z reportedly wants Beyonce to have a second child with him to strengthen their relationship (TV3-Xpose - June 11).
Initially, some entertainment fans discounted the rumours as something to distract fans from the disastrous launch of his music Tidal app service which he purchased for $65 million but the recent drama that has started to be revealed about his relationship suggest that his union that may actually be in trouble.
Recently Jay-z settled out of court a surprising lawsuit from a twenty-one year old named Rymir Satterthwaite accusing the rapper of being his father. This event follows rumours of infidelity, unconfirmed, that some entertainment fans believe are responsible for part of the discord between him and Beyonce and that many attribute to public spectacles in his life such as the infamous elevator drama that took place at the 2014 MET Gala between Solange Knowles and Jay-z's bodyguard.
So how can and does a star such as Jay-z who is forty-five years old and married to the younger Beyonce, one of the most attractive women in the entertainment industry, show her that he is committed to their marriage and get fans talking about something other than him? The answer: ask his wife who has always said that she is committed to their relationship to have a second child to strengthen their relationship.
By his 'pushing all his chips into the middle of the table' with the asking of her to have a second child he has forced her to answer the question of whether she has the same commitment as him to their relationship and to some fans changed the focus of questions from him to her.
Jay-z has an old song, "99 Problems" which states that of his many problems his relationship with a woman was not one of them. Life has certainly changed for him in 2015 but it seems like he is back in control possibly thanks to him, a renowned playboy in his past, wanting his wife to show her commitment by expanding the size of their family. An interesting move that will likely keep his relationship in the spotlight for the remainder of 2015.
