But that seems to be the case with Jay-Z and Solange.The Met Gala in 2014 will forever be linked to an incident Beyoncé and Jay-Z would have rather taken to their graves, but because of a security camera no one noticed that would prove impossible.
After around ten years of dating, Queen Bey and Jay-Z finally tied the knot.
Instead of the star-studded wedding one might expect from such a power couple, they opted for a private ceremony with no press allowed.
Beyoncé reportedly told her mom she thought Jay-Z was a sweet guy, but that she didn’t feel any romantic interest. Knowles gave her daughter the advice to give the man once chance, one date, to see what would happen. For Jay-Z on the other hand, he stated already in 2003 “Who wouldn’t wish she was their girlfriend?
Maybe one day.” Luckily for him, his patience and friendship paid off and Beyoncé eventually fell for him just as hard as he had fallen for her.
Beyoncé also had a boyfriend at the time, but since her career with Destiny’s Child was taking off the two soon drifted apart- setting the stage for Jay Z to swoop in.
The two clearly had much in common as two massive talents taking the Rn B and Hiphop scenes by storm, and have continuously collaborated together over the years.The wedding took place on April 4th 2008, and the number four has continued to play a big part in their relationship.They even got matching IV tattoos instead of rings for their wedding day.This incident would be the first to indicate everything might not always be perfect for the Carters.After the elevator footage leaked Beyoncé , Jay-Z and Solange all made very diplomatic public statements trying to damage control as much as possible.But as much as Beyoncé and Jay-Z had managed to mostly fly under the drama radar during their first ten years together, as a married couple this would become more and more difficult as the scandals started piling up.
