Jay-Z has opened up about his relationship with Beyoncé in a new mini-documentary for his new album, 4:44, and admitted that their romance wasn't "built on the 100 percent truth". In the 11-minute video, which also features interviews from celebrities including Chris Rock, Will Smith and Aziz Ansari, Jay 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."

Jay-Z spoke about his relationship with Beyoncé

The dad-of-three added: "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." Fans were quick to point out that the rapper references his alleged infidelity in his new album. In one song, the lyrics read: "Yeah, I'll [expletive] up a good thing if you let me. Leave me alone, Becky. A man that don't take care his family can't be rich… I apologise, often womanise, took my child to be born, see through a woman's eyes. Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles. Took me too long for this song. I don't deserve you."
