JAY-Z Reveals Struggles In 9-Year Marriage With Beyoncé
Are JAY-Z and Beyoncé are in the happiest, healthiest relationship in the world? Probably not.

They do have an arrangement that works for them though, so whatever floats their boat is fine by us. They use their union to build up their brand, cracks and all (look at Lemonade and 4:44) so good for them and their bank accounts.

Plus, their growing family is undoubtedly a huge source of joy. All hail the Bey-bies!

JAY-Z himself though recently seemed to admit that their marriage isn’t (or wasn’t, depending on how you look at it) everything that people expect it to be. 

In a video titled, 'Footnotes for '4:44'’ (which, obviously, goes alongside his album of the same name), the rapper stated, “This is my real life. 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 and it starts cracking. Things start happening that the public can see."
"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.

JAY-Z even discussed one incident in which he begged Bey to stay; "I was on a boat, and I had the best time. I was like, 'Man, this is great.' Then she had to leave. I was, like, crushed. 'Man, I don't even feel like this. What is happening to my body right now? I don't even feel like this. Did I just say... Don't leave?' 

That is kind of nice actually! No, no. We must stay hard set against him for all of the Becky-with-the-good-hair-ing. Maybe. Eh.

He then admitted that things have been "uncomfortable" at certain times, thanks to both of them living in the spotlight but insists the key to their union is honesty.

JAY-Z said: "We've been in that space where we just got to the place that in order for this to work, it can't be fake - not once […] I'm not saying it wasn't uncomfortable because obviously it was, but because we've been doing it for so long it was less uncomfortable."
