Long, 41, a renowned Hollywood actress, claimed that she saw the hip-hop mogul at an industry party where they exchanged compliments, according to Essence Magazine.
"I saw him at a party and I complimented him on his long run in music … 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," Long told Essence.
Jay-Z was reportedly joking around with Long, who is said to be dating the father of her child Ime Sunday Udoka, a professional basketball player from Portland, Ore. Fans, however, flocked to social networking site Twitter to weigh in on the bizarre encounter.
