Jay Z, Jay-Z

Prince Williams/FilmMagic

Has Jay-Z been lying about his age? That's what one New York City DJ is claiming about Beyoncé's hubby. (But we've got the real scoop.)

New York Radio host DJ Troi Torain (also known professionally as Star) tried to claim Blue Ivy's father is 50 years old and not just 44. But, stop the presses, y'all: E! News can confirm that public records show Shawn Corey Carter (yep, that's his pre-Hova name) was born Dec. 4, 1969. In case you need some help with the math, this makes the king of hip-hop 44 years old—aka his actual age.

But on Star: Live and Direct, a certain on-air personality told a different story. "I shouldn't blow this up, maybe because he doesn't promote it publicly, but Jay Z and I are the same age," Star said. "I will be 50 on May 3. He's 43, 42…that's just media bulls--t!"

Actually, any age discrepancies can be attributed to confusion of other people, because as we mentioned, public records confirm Jay is, indeed, a 44-year-old man. That makes the actual age difference between the mogul and 32-year-old wife Bey just 12 years (not 18, although really, age is nothing but a number).

A rep for the rapper did not immediately respond to E! News request for comment on the false age claims.

Besides, doesn't everybody already know Illuminati Puppet Masters are immortal? Kidding! Jay's forever young, anyway.
