Jay Z Admits The Beginning of His Marriage Wasn’t Truthful

Since 2016’s release of Beyonce’s Lemonade and now Jay Z’s  album, 4:44, the couple has been open about their marital problems and been taking to music to express their feelings.which documents the A-list couple’s marital troubles (including infidelity accusations, raising children and more) in great detail. In a recent release, Jay Z has dropped some more feelings regarding his marriage and his truthfulness.

Released by Tidal on Monday, Jay was joined by celebrities such as Chris Rock, Jesse Williams, Will Smith, Kendrick Lamar, Anthony Anderson, Aziz Ansari and more for a discussion on relationships, love and dating in the public eye.

Regarding his marriage to Beyonce, Jay-Z shared, “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.”

“Things start happening that the public can see,” he recalled. “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.” He explains. Specifically the public incidents he is alluding to is his infamous elevator fight with sister-in-law Solange Knowles post the 2014 Met Gala, which caused the family to release a statement regarding the issue.He also shared how he put his ego aside and begged Beyoncé to stay by his side after feeling a certain way towards her.

“I was on a boat, and I had the best time,” Jay described without mentioning his wife’s name. “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?'”

Jay-Z also said he came to the realization that honesty was critical for the survival of their marriage. So much honesty, he admitted, that Beyoncé listened to the entire album way before its release. He explained, “We’ve been in that space where we just got to the place that in order for this to work, it can’t be fake—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.”
