Rapper: Jay Electronica

"I’m pretty shell-shocked by everything. All I am thinking about now is my children." -Tweets Mr. Ben Goldsmith after discovering that his wife Kate Rothschilds carried on a lengthy love affair with rapper Jay Electronica. The rapper is pictured above with Mr. Goldsmith and his son (with Kate) during happier times.
She's one of those Rothschilds, and her mother was a Guinness, from the brewery family. Ben's father was a billionaire. They met in 2000, married in 2003. Their three kids are under 10. So if it's not money - yup, Ben lost it after discovering that Kate, a music producer, is fooling around with someone not quite their kind: New Orleans-born rapper Jay Electronica, born Timothy Elpardo Thedford. He has a daughter with Erykah Badu. Ben, angry after finding explicit messages from Jay on Kate's phone, apparently kicked a kid's toy, which struck Kate's leg, bruising her. She called the cops. He wasn't charged, but confirmed to the Daily Mail that he wants a divorce. Ben's 31. Kate's 30, Electronica is 35.


  1. The Plot Thickens!

    Transatlantic alliance between Rothschilds and Rockefellers for wealth management

    As if they weren't already well-connected enough, the world's two greatest dynasties joined forces yesterday as Europe's Rothschild banking clan bought a stake in the Rockefeller group's wealth and asset management business to gain a foothold in the US.

    The patriarchs of the two families – 96-year-old David Rockefeller and Jacob Rothschild, 76 – cemented a five-decade acquaintance as the younger man's London-based £2bn RIT Capital investment trust bought a 37 per cent stake in the American's business.

    In addition to bringing together the two doyens, the deal will considerably expand the vast networks of both families.

    To give a taste: Lord Rothschild's son, Nat Rothschild, is a well-known entrepreneur with stakes in a range of companies such as Genel, the Kurdistan-focused oil producer run by former BP chief executive Tony Hayward and Bumi, the Indonesian mining group. He was also linked with George Osborne and Peter Mandelson at a notorious party on an oligarch's yacht off Corfu in 2008.

    Lord Rothschild's niece Kate is married to Ben Goldsmith, brother of Conservative MP Zac Goldsmith and Jemima Khan and son of the late billionaire business tycoon Sir James Goldsmith.

    On the Rockefeller side, for starters, David's granddaughter Ariana is a successful fashion designer who married the construction heir Matthew Bucklin in 2010. And let's not forget the founders who, although no longer with us, live on through their business creations.

    The Rockefeller family's journey to vast riches began in 1870 when John D Rockefeller set up Standard Oil and went on establish a fortune that is widely regarded to be the largest in US history. The family's wealth management operation was set up in 1882 to manage that fortune.

    The Rothschild dynasty goes back even further, to when Mayer Amschel Rothschild started a business in Frankfurt towards the end of the 18th century. It helped finance Britain's war against Napoleon in the 19th century and raised funds for a loan allowing the British government to buy the Suez canal.

    The Rothschilds bought the stake in Rockefeller from French banking group Société Générale for an undisclosed sum. SocGen, which has owned the stake since 2008, appointed a new head of private banking in March, replacing Daniel Truchi with Jean-François Mazaud.

    SocGen's sale of the stake comes as banks around the world sell peripheral assets to reduce their risks and strengthen their capital bases in order to meet tough regulations aimed at preventing a repeat of the 2008 financial crisis.

    Commenting on the deal, Mr Rockeller said: "Lord Rothschild and I have known each other for five decades. The connection between our two families remains very strong. I am delighted to welcome Jacob and RIT as shareholders."


  2. Jay Electronica better watch out, that weapon could end up in the other hand and a bullet in his head. Inbreds can be crazy.

    RIT Capital Partners, RCP.LN +2.34%an investment firm controlled by a branch of the Rothschild family, agreed on Wednesday to take a large minority stake in asset manager Rockefeller Financial Services.

    The combination of two names closely associated with old-line family wealth is meant to generate more business for Rockefeller & Co., the principal holding of New York-based Rockefeller Financial Services.

    The transaction "puts together two names, two families that represent long-term stewardship of family resources—and that's at the core of our value proposition," said Reuben Jeffery, CEO of Rockefeller & Co. The deal, expected to close in September, was reported by the Financial Times on Wednesday.

    Under the terms of the agreement, RIT Capital Partners of London will buy 37% of Rockefeller Financial Services from Société Générale SA, which joined with Rockefeller Financial early in 2008. At the time, Société Générale said it planned to help the U.S. firm expand internationally.

    Société Générale didn't say why it is selling its stake in Rockefeller. Like other big French banks weakened by exposure to Greece and other faltering euro-zone economies, it is scrambling to bolster its balance sheet. The bank's share price has fallen by more than 60% in the past 12 months.

    Jacob Rothschild, RIT's chairman and the fourth Baron Rothschild, characterized the European debt crisis as "an incredibly interesting moment in time" that has created opportunities for nimble firms to pluck assets from rivals.

    Lord Rothschild said he and old friend David Rockefeller, chairman of Rockefeller Financial, for years have talked about working together. RIT has been pressing for a deal with Société Générale for the last six months, according to Lord Rothschild.

    The Rothschild family has been prominent in European banking and finance for more than 200 years. RIT is a London-based investment trust with £1.9 billion in net assets.

    Rockefeller Financial began 130 years ago as the investment office of the John D. Rockefeller family, and opened its doors to outside families about 30 years ago. Among its various units, it now manages or administers about $34 billion in client assets.

    Lord Rothschild said RIT and Rockefeller Financial "ought to be able to develop interesting products together," in addition to the intended brand appeal of the two family names.

    .Twitter ..RIT Capital and Rockefeller Financial Services said that they would collaborate on investment opportunities and other areas of shared expertise. The transaction will also give RIT Capital, which is based in London, a presence in the United States. The deal is expected to close by the end of September.

    “We are delighted at the prospect of bringing together these two entities in a long-term partnership,” Mr. Rothschild, chairman of RIT Capital, said. “The creation of this partnership with the Rockefeller family is truly historic.”

    The deal between the two well-known banking families comes after RIT Capital, whose assets total £1.9 billion, or $3 billion, announced a partnership in March with the Edmond de Rothschild Group, an international private banking and asset management group led Benjamin de Rothschild.

    The Rothschilds, whose banking dynasty dates to the 18th century and operates across a number of European countries, are also consolidating their French and British operations.

    In a deal announced on April 5, Paris Orléans, the Rothschild Group’s holding company, said it was buying minority stakes in its subsidiaries, including N. M. Rothschild & Sons, the investment bank based in London, and the group’s French asset management business.

  6. The Rockefellers and the Rothschilds Make a Deal

    + Comment now Two families whose names are synonymous with wealth have joined forces.

    The Financial Times reports that RIT Capital Partners, part of the Rothschild banking dynasty, has bought a stake in Rockefeller Financial Services.

    RIT is acquiring the 37 percent equity interest formerly held by Société Générale Private Banking.

    While the Rockefellers are considered old money in the U.S., the Rothschild fortune goes back many more generations in Europe.

    Patriarch Mayer Amschel Rothschild had such a tremendous impact on international banking that Forbes in 2005 named him to its list of 20 most Influential Businessmen. Rothschild died in 1812.

    John D. Rockefeller died 125 years later, as the world’s richest man. He had established the wealth services company in 1882, to manage the family fortune.

    His grandson, former Chase Manhattan Bank Chairman David Rockefeller, has a longtime personal relationship with the Rothschilds.

    In a press release, Rockefeller said, “Lord Rothschild and I have known each other for five decades. The connection between our two families remains very strong. I am delighted to welcome Jacob and RIT as shareholders and partners in the ongoing development of our investment management and wealth advisory businesses.”

    The deal began, according to the Financial Times, when he introduced Jacob Rothschild, great-great-great-great-grandson of patriarch Mayer Amschel Rothschild, to Reuben Jeffery, CEO of Rockefeller Financial.

    Formal talks started a year later.

    The chart below shows the new link between the two dynasties. An interactive version can be seen on Muckety.com.


  7. Illuminati bloodline families. Nothing good comes out of them. If it's not money, ehm maybe Ben Goldsmith isn't good in bed! LOL!!

  8. Humph! I guess Jay-Z sent Jay Electronica to the U.K. to watch Goldsmith and Rothschilds throne. Always wondered how Jay-Z met Warren Buffet.

    Kate and Jay Electronica union was his ticket in.

  9. You have to put in "work" to be signed to RocNation.

    Your results must benefit Jay-Z in the longrun. Through Jay Electronica and Kate secret affair, Jay-Z learned enough about the banking industry to land him a interview with Warren Buffet.

    When these two met, i also wondered how Jay-Z would end up on the same road as Warren Buffet.

    My question was answered after Jay Electronica's affair with Kate Rothschilds hit the news.

    Jay-Z meet Warren Buffent in September 2010.

    Jay-Z signed Jay Electronica to RocNation in November 2010.

  10. To Jay Electronica; Any luck meeting Warren Buffet?

  11. lol watch Jay-Z rap about this love affair lol
    He probably drop hints throughout his recent CD if you listen carefully. Jay Electronia might be the "N*gga In Paris" that he's talking about.

  12. Jay-Z while Jay Electronia was sexing Kate, were you alone or did Mrs. Paltrow sneak out to play?

    Chris are you reading through your wife text messages or did she erase all evidence?

  13. Gwynie and Jay-Z? Hell no!

  14. How about Jay-Z and Martin HER husband.

  15. But the clue to the couple's affair was there all along - in one of Jay Electronica's songs, Call Of Duty, in which he sings of Kate Rothschild's famous family.

    Electronica - who is said to have been having an affair with Kate for the past year - raps about 'Brunch with the Rothschilds, dinner with the Carters'.
    That is a reference to his girlfriend's family and his friends, rapper Jay Z (real name Shawn Carter) and his wife, the singer Beyonce.

    To those with preconceptions about the rapper, the song, which begins with a rousing quote from Sir Winston Churchill's 'Be ye men of valour' speech, may come as a surprise.
