Jay-Z has opened up about fighting for his marriage to his ‘soul mate’ Beyonce.
The rapper, 48, who previously confessed to cheating on his wife, was asked about their relationship during an appearance on The Van Jones Show on CNN.
Asked about fighting for their relationship, he told the reporter:
‘That’s my soul mate. It’s the person I love. You can be in love with someone, you can love someone, and if you haven’t experienced love or don’t understand it or you don’t have the tools to move forward then you are going to have complications. Period.”
“You can either address or you can pretend until it blows up at some point. For us, we chose to fight for our love, for our family, to give our kids a different outcome, to break that cycle for black men and women, to see a different outcome.”“We were never a celebrity couple,’ he insisted. ‘We were a couple who just happened to be celebrities.”
He added the best way to apologize was through ‘changed behavior.’
“You have to acknowledge the pain. You have to let that person have their say. You have to get on the floor, get on the mattress, and you have to really work through it and really be honest no matter how many times.”
