Talking points

Jay-Z and Beyonce

Jay-Z already a father?

Jay-Z
is happily expecting a child with wife Beyonce, but it may not be his first. Star magazine is reporting that the 41-year-old hip-hop icon fathered a love child with model Shenelle Scott nine years ago, before he and Beyonce were an item. Jerard Andrews, the father of the man who was previously believed to be the child’s father, says DNA tests have concluded Jay-Z’s paternity. “Shenelle told me that Jay-Z gave her $1 million to keep her mouth shut. My understanding is that he’s paying her child support,” Andrews says. “Shenelle took the money and bought herself a really nice house in Trinidad that the whole family lives in now.”

Rodriguez and Diaz are done

The on-again, off-again relationship between Cameron Diaz and Yankees star Alex Rodriguez is reportedly off — again. “They broke up recently,” a source close to the couple tells Us Weekly. “They’re still very friendly and like each other. He has an enormous amount of respect for her.” As it turns out, work got in the way this time: “She’s very busy with her career,” the source says. “And he’s had injuries and wants to focus on his game. They’re dedicated professionals.”

We love it too, Sofia

“Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara is OK with her voluptuous figure, even if it helped her land a role as a transexual in a 2006 film, “Grilled.” “I look like a transsexual anyway. I’m a woman, but I’m super-exaggerated with my boobs,” Vergara tells The Advocate. “When I get ready for an event, I always look at myself in the mirror and say, ‘I look like a transvestite!’ I love it.”
