Jay Z: What’s my age again?

Rapper is older than we thought

Age may be nothing but a number, but according to one US radio host, Jay Z has been subtracting a few. Public records indicate that the music mogul is 44, but DJ Troi Torain, popularly known as Star, says he knows better, claiming the rapper is actually 50.

‘I shouldn't blow this up, maybe because he doesn't promote it publicly, but Jay Z and I are the same age,’ Torain said on his radio show, adding: ‘I will turn 50 on 3 May.’

Should the claims be true (and if they are, we want to know what moisturiser Jay Z has been using), it would mean Beyoncé’s husband is actually 18 years her senior.

Jay Z has not responded to Torain’s comments – we can only assume that with his millions in the bank, megastar wife and gorgeous baby girl, he’s not overly concerned whether people think he’s 44, 54 or 74. Well, it's never done Karl Lagerfeld any harm, either.
