Jay-Z Says His Marriage to Beyonce Wasn't 'Totally Built on the 100 Percent Truth'

Jay-Z Says His Marriage to Beyonce Wasn't 'Totally Built on the 100 Percent Truth'

Jay-Z is giving a glimpse into his life with Beyonce after nine years of marriage.

“This is my real life. I just ran into this place and we built this big, beautiful mansion of a relationship that wasn’t totally built on the 100 percent truth and it starts cracking,” the 47-year-old rapper said (via E! News) during a video released by Tidal on Monday. “Things start happening that the public can see. Then we had to get to a point of ‘OK, tear this down and let’s start from the beginning.’ It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.”

Jay-Z then described a turning point for him in the relationship.

“I was on a boat, and I had the best time,” he continued. “I was like, ‘Man, this is great.’ Then she had to leave. I was, like, crushed. ‘Man, I don’t even feel like this. What is happening to my body right now?’ I don’t even feel like this. Did I just say, ‘Don’t leave?’”

“We’ve been in that space where we just got to the place that in order for this to work, it can’t be fakeā€”not once. I’m not saying it wasn’t uncomfortable because obviously it was, but because we’ve been doing it for so long it was less uncomfortable,” Jay-Z concluded.

Jay-Z seemingly referenced cheating in one of the songs on his album 4:44.
