Ever since the 2016 release of Beyonce's critically adored, tour de force Lemonade, rumours about Jay-Z's infidelity – hinted at in lyrics on her album – have swirled around the world's most famous couple.
Now, in a new interview with the New York Times, the rapper has admitted it for the first time.
Talking about a stint in therapy, he said: "You have to survive. So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotion.
"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."
Jay also confirmed in the same interview that, despite all that business with the mysterious 'Becky', the couple are working on some new music together.
"Her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on. Um, we still have a lot of that music."
