Jay Electronica Breaks Up Blue Blood Marriage

Listen to me when I tell you this: Ghetto D is nothing to play with.

Eryakah Badu's baby daddy, New Orleans rapper Jay Electronica, is in the middle of a messy old money divorce in London...

From The Daily Mail
It seemed like the perfect union – a marriage that brought together two of the country’s wealthiest families.
He was the multi-millionaire son of the late financier and tycoon Jimmy Goldsmith, she a scion of the Rothschild banking dynasty.
But now Ben Goldsmith and his music producer wife Kate, who have three children, are to divorce after she embarked on a passionate love affair with an American rap singer named Jay Electronica.
Last night Mr Goldsmith confirmed the split, saying: ‘I’m pretty shell-shocked by everything. All I am thinking about now is my children.’
The marriage ended with a dramatic showdown at the family home in Notting Hill, West London, on Wednesday morning.
Mr Goldsmith, 31, confronted his 30-year-old wife over explicit text messages and emails he found on her smartphone that she had received from and sent to the New Orleans-born hip-hop artist, who now lives in London and is one of her clients.
After initially denying the romance, Mrs Goldsmith confessed to the affair when her husband told her he had read the text messages.
During a heated altercation, Mr Goldsmith slapped his wife and kicked a child’s toy at her.
He then took the children to school. By the time he returned, she had called police and they were at the house to arrest him.
Last night a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed that officers were called to attend a domestic disturbance in the couple’s street at 8am and arrested a man on suspicion of common assault.
