Forget marriage woes... Beyonce and Jay Z deal with lawsuit from woman claiming to be Blue Ivy's biological mother

As if the Bey-Z relationship wasn’t already the focus of media scrutiny lately...

Rumours of problems in the Beyonce and Jay-Z’s six year marriage have been circulating the entertainment pages in recent weeks.

So they needed this new controversy – a homeless woman claiming to be the biological mother of their child – like a hole in the head.

The woman in question, Tina Seals, is reportedly suing the famous couple and is maintaining she gave birth to two-year-old Blue Ivy.  

As tenuous as the claim may be, it adds extra pressure on the couple who are currently on a global concert tour together.

There were conspiracy theories circling the couple when they were expecting their first child that Beyonce didn’t carry the baby but used a surrogate.

For her part, Seals has a history of filing apparently unfounded lawsuits against celebrities. For example, she has previously claimed to have given birth to Kardashian offspring North West and royal baby George.

According to Radar Online, who reportedly received a copy of the handwritten lawsuit filed by the claimant, she stated:

“Through mutual associates the plaintiff (myself) provided DNA egg for Beyonce and Jay-Z and look to work out some type of contractual agreement with defendants that: a) Would compensate me for my services with reference to Blue Ivy Doe. b) Would remove any criminal liability associated with the unlawful use of my DNA for the parties involved. c) Would terminate plaintiff parental rights immediately and extend full parental rights to defendants w/o plaintiff support.”

Needless to say, Beyonce and Jay-Z have refuted the claim that they used a surrogate mother.
