Jay Electronica in Middle of Ben Goldsmith and Kate Rothschild Divorce?

Jay Electronica has found himself in the middle of a nasty divorce between two of Britain’s elite.

Ben Goldsmith, son of the late billionaire financier Jimmy Goldsmith, and his wife Kate, an heiress to the Rothschild banking dynasty, are set to divorce with the Roc Nation rapper at the center of the high profile breakup.

According to the UK’s Daily Mail, the affair has been going on for close to a year, culminating last week when Mr. Goldsmith, 31, confronted his wife about a series of sexually explicit text messages and emails he discovered on her phone, allegedly between her and Jay Electronica.

The argument allegedly took a turn for the worse with Goldsmith slapping his wife, who in turn called police. Goldsmith was arrested on suspicion of common assault and later released.

Kate Goldsmith, CEO of Round Table record label, has been in constant contact with Elec via Twitter, with Jay tweeting out a picture of Kate on a helicopter as recently as May 21st.

In March, Elec tweeted out that he had completed his long delayed Roc Nation debut album, Act II: Patents of Nobility, though no official date has been announced.

“Dear Believers and Patient Supporters,” Jay Elec tweeted, addressing his fans on March 8. “Thank you for your patience and support. The Album will be turned in Tomorrow evening. The wait ends. Over the next day or so, i will write an open letter via my tumblr ( to those who have waited patiently on me. Love.”

As of press time, calls to Electronica’s camp have not been returned.—Neil Martinez – Belkin
