Having going through a really rough past two years in his marriage to Beyonce, Jay Z has revealed that the marriage wasn’t built on the built on the truth.

This clearly explains the rough path the couple has had to go through.

It’s been almost two weeks since the 47-year-old rapper released his album 4:44, which appears to be a direct response to accusations of his infidelity that appear on Beyoncé’s album Lemonade and an open apology to his wife.

Despite the fact that Beyoncé’s fans don’t seem too impressed with the rapper/producer’s latest creative endeavour, with suggestions that the video for his title track ‘4:44’ is disrespectful to his wife, one has to be impressed with the New Yorker’s latest admission about his marriage.

In a video released on Monday on Tidal, Jay-Z joins the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Will Smith, Chris Rock and Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams to discuss the subject of love and relationships in the video ‘Footnotes for 4:44’.

And while he has seemingly addressed his alleged cheating, the now infamous ‘Becky’ from Beyoncé’s visual album, and opened up about his alleged womanising, the heartbreak of miscarriage, and his mother’s sexuality throughout his new album, the father-of-three uses his latest video to talk about the true state of his union with Beyoncé, revealing it wasn’t totally built on truth.

“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”, Jay-Z says in the video.

“Then it starts cracking, and then things start happening that the public can see…We had to go a point and be like, “Tear this down”, and then start from the beginning,” he added.

The star then divulged on how it feels to have his private life out in the open.

“Things start happening that the public can see,” he recalled.

“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 explained.
