But Esther Pilgrim believes otherwise: she says the ex-rapper faked his death in order to swindle her out of $32,000.

Blair and Pilgrim met through an online dating site and the former pleaded guilty in 2011 to defrauding Pilgrim into funding his supposedly resurrected music career.

Tim Dog was ordered to pay $19,000 in restitution over a five-year period, money he did fork over to Pilgrim in various installments… until his supposed death in February.

A photo of Jay-Z and Drake in the studio has surfaced online, prompting speculation that the two may be collaborating on music together. Check it out:

The photo of the stars was posted by producer Lenny S, who wrote: “Warning: Please be very afraid of the music we’re working on. OVO x ROCNATION.”

It’s unknown where the collab will end up, but signs are pointing toward Jay’s new LP. His last solo album, The Blueprint 3, was released in 2009.

Drake is also working on a new album, however, and the two worked together on "Light Up” off Drake’s debut album Thank Me Later, so who knows!

The pic has also sparked chatter that Jay has chosen a side in Chris Brown and Drake’s alleged rivalry over Rihanna, but that's likely reading into it a bit.

Or a lot.
