Very early on in the music career of Rihanna, there were rumours that the young, up and coming star was having an affair with Jay-Z, with Beyonce not knowing what to make of it all. However, the rumours eventually died down and we have not heard much more about for quite a while.
However, famed biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli, who has managed to discover secrets about the likes of Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, and Madonna in the past, has been working on a biography about Beyonce, uncovering some truths along the way. Taraborrelli has now explained what actually went on between Rihanna and Jay-Z.
He explained, "There was a big story that Jay was having an affair with Rihanna and Beyonce didn't know what to make of it. A publicist working for Rihanna and working for Jay, because Rihanna was tied to Jay's record label, put forth the story in order to boost her career and get her first song, Pon de Replay, up the charts... It was total fiction."
Meanwhile, there had also been suggestions that Beyonce knows about Jay-Z and his cheating ways but cannot bring herself to leave her husband, and the father of her children. However, Taraborrelli insists that this could not be further from the truth, as Beyonce would never put up with such a thing.
He added, "To all the people out there who believe that Jay Z cheats on Beyonce and that she allows it, that's not gonna happen; Beyonce's not that girl. If he's cheating on Beyonce, she doesn't know about it because if she did he'd be out."
Let's hope that this is now the last we hear of all this nonsense!
