Jay-Z opens up about his troubled marriage to Beyonce

Rapper Jay-Z has admitted that his marriage to global superstar Beyonce wasn’t totally built on the truth. This isn’t totally news to us as Beyonce’s album Lemonade gave us an insight into their marriage. Yesterday however, the rapper was taking part in a discussion along with other celebs such as Will Smith, Chris Rock, Jesse Williams and Anthony Anderson when he revealed that not everything is as rosy as it seems in the couple’s seemingly perfect life.

Speaking about his life and relationship with Beyonce he said ‘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.’ He went on to say that they had to restart their relationship from the beginning and do it the right way. ‘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.’

He also discussed the value that total honesty plays in their relationship and said that they both listened to Beyonce’s whole album together, despite the damning indictment it gives of Jay-Z. ‘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.’
