Jay Z dropped hints on 4:44 that he had cheated on his wife Beyonce. But 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 Style Magazine 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 Forever Young 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’re 89.
The music made them “very, very uncomfortable.” Jay told T: “But the best place in the hurricane is in the middle of it. The best place is right in the middle of the pain. And that’s where we were sitting. And it was uncomfortable. And we had a lot of conversations. I was really proud of the music she made, and she was really proud of the art I released. And, you know, at the end of the day we really have a healthy respect for one another’s craft. I think she’s amazing.”
