Jay-Z and Beyonce.

In a new mini documentary for his latest album 4:44, JAY-Z has revealed his marriage to Beyonce “wasn’t totally built on 100 percent truth”.


The documentary which is tagged “Footnotes for 4:44”, the 47-year-old rapper admitted the “hardest thing” he’s ever had to do is facing up to potential difficulties in his union and trying to work them out.


JAY-Z said:


“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, ‘Okay, tear this down and let’s start from the beginning … It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.”


“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?”


The rap mogul admitted his marriage to wife, Beyonce, has been ‘uncomfortable’ at times due to being in the public eye, but insists the key to their union is honesty.


The 11-minute clip opened briefly with Chris Rock before cutting to Chris Paul who talked about how tough it is when fighting with your partner.


Other men who spoke about their relationships with women in the clip include Meek Mill, Kendrick Lamar, Mahershala Ali, Will Smith, Aziz Ansari, and Anthony Anderson.
