Jay finally pulled back the curtain

Though it was all but confirmed at this point via the back-and-forth on their albums Lemonade and 4:44, Jay-Z has finally stated in no uncertain terms that he cheated on Beyoncé.

In a new wide-ranging interview with the New York Times, Jigga revealed that he stepped out on his wife and explained why he did it. In short, Jay went into an emotionless headspace to get through his everyday life and eventually that extended to his wife.

“You have to survive. So you go into survival mode and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions,” he said. “So, even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can’t connect. In my case, like, it’s deep. And then all the things that happen from there: infidelity.”
