According to on Aug.18, the woman whose name is Tina Seals, filed a federal lawsuit in New York City requesting that she be financially compensated for the eggs she allegedly provided to Beyonce and Jay Z for the conception of Blue Ivy. Seals claims she is “associated with the power couple and that the arrangements for the alleged donor eggs were made through a mutual acquaintance. She wants court-ordered DNA testing done on Blue Ivy to confirm her allegations that the little girl is her biological child.
