what led to jay z’s infidelity
Fans have always been curious if Jay-Z really cheated on Beyonce, following her Lemonade album and his hints on the 4:44 album. The rapper has finally admitted that he was unfaithful to Queen Bey in a new interview.
The 47-year-old rapper opened up about many subjects during his interview with Dean Baquet for The New York Times, one of which was the cheating rumors.
Jay-Z confessed that he had cheated on his gorgeous wife of nine years, admitting that their marriage was saved by seeking therapy.
The rapper addressed his infidelity as he opened up about scars from his past. Jay stated that those past hurts led to him pushing Bey away, which led to him straying from the marriage.
In a candid, sit down interview with the NYT, rapper #JayZ admitted to cheating on #Beyonce, due to issues from his past.
The rapper did not go into detail about his infidelity, nor did he reveal the woman (or women) he cheated with.
Fans will recall Beyonce referred to the ‘other woman’ as “Becky with the good hair” on her Lemonade album. Jay also hinted at cheating on his 4:44 album.
The hip hop legend revealed that he and his wife originally planned to do a joint album. He explained, “We were using our art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together. And then the music she was making at that time was further along. So, her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on.”
He adds, “We still have a lot of that music. And this is what it became. There was never a point where it was like, ‘I’m making this album.’ I was right there the entire time.”
Jay-Z admits the tracks on their albums made them “very, very uncomfortable.”
He explained, “But the best place in the hurricane is in the middle of it. The best place is right in the middle of the pain. And that’s where we were sitting. And it was uncomfortable. And we had a lot of conversations. [I was] really proud of the music she made, and she was really proud of the art I released. And, you know, at the end of the day we really have a healthy respect for one another’s craft. I think she’s amazing.”
Jay Z appeared to suggest they considered getting a divorce. He stated, “You know, most people walk away, and, like, divorce rate is like 50 percent or something ’cause most people can’t see themselves. The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself.”
Thankfully, Jay-Z and Beyonce were able to work through his infidelity. They went on to welcome twins in June, Rumi and Sir, who are now five months old. The couple are also parents to 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy. YYYAASSS!!
