If you know who Jay Electronica is, it’s either because you are a hip-hop fan and know his music or you know him as the father of Erykah Badu’s youngest child. But according to Daily Mail UK, he is in the center of a marriage breaking up. According to Ben Goldsmith, his music producer wife and heiress to the Rothschild banking dynasty Kate has been carrying on an affair with Jay for about a year (he is one of her clients and apparently lives in London now) . Ben claims he found very racy text messages and email exchanges between the two of them and after denying anything was going on for a little while, Kate finally admitted they were having an affair.
During their argument, Ben assaulted her and left the home. Upon his return, the police were there and arrested him on a domestic charge. Allegedly, Ben has always been very suspicious of Kate and Jay’s “friendship” because of the amount of time they’d been spending together. Apparently he was right because sources say Kate has a slight obsession with Jay, calling him multiple times throughout the night and sometimes spending the night with him.
This is quite the scandal as Ben’s father is financial tycoon Jimmy Goldsmith and as previously mentioned, Kate is a Rothschild scion. The couple, who has been married since 2003, have three children.
Jay Electronica always finds himself in the most precarious situations.
