While his American fans continue to wait for his debut album, Jay Electronica has become the latest rapper involved in an international scandal. Electronica is being called out by Ben Goldsmith, the husband of Kate Goldsmith, claiming that Electronicaâ€™s been having an illicit affair with his Rothschild heiress wife. According to a report by the U.K. Daily Mail, the rapper whoâ€™s been living in London, has been sleeping with Goldsmithâ€™s wife who heâ€™s become close to through her Roundtable Records label. â€œIâ€™m pretty shell-shocked by everything. All I am thinking about now is my children,â€ said the scorned husband who found sexually explicit text messages from Electronica in his spouseâ€™s phone.
After the heiress reportedly confessed to the affair last week, the Daily Mail reports that her husband slapped her across the face and kicked one of their three childrenâ€™s toys her way. Police were later called to the scene.
While Electronica has yet to speak on the story directly, the rapper â€˜s been pictured with both Kate and Ben and even recently tweeted a picture of his alleged lover with the caption, â€œKateRoundtable, at the Watch The Helicopter tour.â€ He later wrote on the network â€œ#LoveIsOnTheWay.â€
Kate has since issued a statement accusing her estranged husband of trying to deflect from the coupleâ€™s recentÂ volatile altercation.
â€œArticles in todayâ€™s media contain false and inaccurate information which appears to have been given to the media in a deliberate attempt toÂ damageÂ Kate and herÂ businessesÂ as well as to deflect from the gravity of last weekâ€™sÂ incidentÂ involving the police,â€ said a statement. Â â€Kate is devastated, she has had a very frightening time since she and her husband initially split five months ago, and this is just another sad development. Her main concern now is for herÂ childrenÂ who will remain with her at the familyÂ home.â€
Along with being known for his tracks â€œExhibit Aâ€ and â€œExhibit Câ€ the precursors to his Act II: Patients Of Nobility album,Â Electronicaâ€™s also well known for being one of three men to father a child with singer Erykah Badu. The musical exes who remain friends, had a daughter in 2009 named Mars and gave many fans hope that they would reconcile particularly after the rapper went on a drunken Twitter rampage and rambled on about his love for the songstress.
