Hov may have had 99 problems, but a woman was never one.

In an interview with Essence, actress Nia Long said she met Jay-Z at a party they both attended and complimented the rap mogul on his accomplishments, which led to his admission.

“I saw him at a party and I complimented him on his long run in music,” Long said. “But he turned it around and asked me: ‘How does it feel to be every boy from the hood’s fantasy girlfriend for 20 years?’ It made me laugh, I hadn’t really thought about it.”

No need for controversy though. Nia has been with longtime boyfriend and international baller Ime Udoka for three years while Mr. Carter has hubbied up with mega-diva Beyonce for nearly eight. Both couples had their first children within the last year.
