Jay-Z Talks Cheating On Beyoncé With David Letterman: 'I'm Proud Of The Father And The Husband That I Am Today'
Rapper and entreprenuer Jay-Z opened up further about his past unfaithfulness to his wife, Beyoncé, on David Letterman's new Netflix special, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.
During the conversation, the two men reflected on their past mistakes and what they learned from them.
Letterman, who also cheated on his wife, brought up his past transgressions during the in-depth interview and commented on the "situation" he got himself into. Letterman didn't outright use the word "cheating" but did admit that he made a mistake and has been trying to be a better person since then.
The hip-hop mogul agreed with the host and opened up making his marriage last with the singer following the cheating incident.
"Much like you I have a beautiful wife who was understanding and who knew that I'm not the worst of what I've done and who did the hard work of going to therapy and really, we love each other. We really put in the work," the rapper stated.
He continued that he's now proud of the man he became and the work he has put in to sustain his marriage.
"For years, this music that I'm making now is a result of things that happened already. Like you, I like to believe that we're in a better place today but still working and communicating and growing. I'm proud of the father and the husband that I am today because of all the work that was done." he continued.

Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, released his album, 4:44, which confirmed that he did indeed step out on his marriage. Following this, the rapper and the singer welcomed twins, Sir and Rumi Carter. The couple also have an older daughter, Blu Ivy. The entertainers began their relationship in 2002 and married in a private ceremony on April 4, 2008.
The Carters are now gearing up for their highly-anticipated summer tour, On The Run II.
