My Relationship With Beyonce Wasn’t Built On 100% Truth – Jay-Z
Jay-Z, in a relationship chat with Chris Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Will Smith and Jesse Williams that was streamed on his Tidal service, has said that rebuilding his relationship with the Hold Up singer was the ‘hardest thing’ he’s ever done.
He revealed: ‘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. 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.’
The rapper whose 4:44 album just went platinum barely a week after release went further to say:
‘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,’
