Lastly, Wiltshire is also a mother to two daughters and resides in the tri-state area with her loved ones.

According to The Independent, Jay-Z showed approval for his mother’s relationship with Wiltshire during a 2018 interview with David Letterman.

“Imagine having to live your life as someone else, and you think you’re protecting your kids. For her to sit in front of me and tell me, ‘I think I love someone,’ I really cried…I cried because I was so happy for her that she was free…”
