Beyonce and Jay-Z haven’t had an easy marriage just because they are both famous and successful. It’s actually quite the opposite. Jay-Z admitted to Vogue that he did indeed cheat on his wife at one point in their relationship.
Beyonce says this almost broke up their marriage, but unlike some couples who call it quits, the two prevailed and they are indeed still married. Perhaps this was thanks to the three apology albums Jay-Z released.
Another reason that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s marriage may have survived despite the infidelity is that the couple has three children together. They have a daughter named Blue Ivy who was born in 2012.
