AceShowbiz - %cJay-Z% has several times publicly talked about his infidelity after it became inspiration for %cBeyonce Knowles%' 2016 visual album "Lemonade" as well as his own latest album "4:44". Appearing on CNN's "The Van Jones Show" over the weekend, he was once again asked his marriage issues.
Instead of shying away from the topic, the 48-year-old star shared how he overcame the problems. "If you haven't experienced love and you don't understand it, if you don't have the tools to move forward, then you're going to have complications. Period," he said.
When asked what's so special about the marriage that made it worth fighting for, Jay-Z responded, "Well, that's my soulmate. It's the person I love. And you can be in love with someone, you can love someone," referring to his wife Beyonce.
He went on sharing why he chose to fight for his marriage, "You can either address it, or you can pretend until it blows up at some point, and for us, we chose to fight for our love, for our family, to give our kids a different outcome, to break that cycle. And for black men and women, to see a different outcome."
When asked for advice on how other men should response to their own infidelity, Jay-Z said, "The best apology is changed behavior."
He also said about being a high-profile couple, "It's not just a celebrity couple. We were never a celebrity couple, we were a couple who just happened to be celebrities. We're real people."
Moving past their marriage issues, Jay-Z and Beyonce recently welcomed their twins, Rumi and Sir Carter. Their second and third children were born at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California on June 13, 2017.
The couple has been putting on united front at public events. Most recently, they attended the 2018 Grammy Awards which was held on Sunday, January 28 with their first daughter, Blue Ivy. The 6-year-old girl made headlines as she adorably told her parents to stop clapping while %cCamila Cabello% gave a moving speech.
