Fans first heard whispers back in 2014. That was the year when a video of Beyonce’s sister Solange hitting her brother-in-law in an elevator went viral.
Confirmation that the couple, who are widely regarded as the ‘king and queen of’ of the music industry, were in fact not a perfect couple still came as a shock.
Now, Jay-Z has somewhat admitted to his infidelities, offering an ‘explanation’ of sorts for his actions.
Speaking to T Magazine, the award-winning rapper and music mogul spoke of his mindset at the time of the affair, revealing he’s since sought professional help from a therapist.
“The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself,” the 47-year-old said.
