Jay Z dropped hints on 4:44 that he had cheated on his wife Beyonce. However, the Grammy winner has never come out and said outright that he stepped out on her.
That changed on Wednesday when the hip-hop legend, 47, sat down with Dean Baquet from The New York Times for a very revealing chat.
The New York-born entrepreneur not only admitted that he been unfaithful to his wife of nine years, but the Young Forever singer also said that therapy kept them from getting divorced.
He also touched on his difficult friendship with Kanye West, but went out of his way to insist he will always love Kim Kardashian's husband and that they will laugh at these spats when they are 89.
Jay Z started talking about the infidelity when he addressed the scars he still has from his past.
Those scars led to him push away his wife, 36. And that led to the cheating that she addressed in Lemonade.
'You have to survive. So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions. So, even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can't connect. ... In my case, like, it's deep. And then all the things happen from there: infidelity,' he said.
He has never named the woman he cheated with. Beyonce has called her 'Becky with the good hair.'
