Speaking to a leading magazine, the hugely successful rapper recently said, "The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone's face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself", Contactmusic reported.
"So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions. 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 happen from there: infidelity", he added.
Confirming the long-standing rumor, Jay-Z suggested that he and Queen Bey might have been divorced at one point. However, that was avoided as he had undergone therapy to help deal with his past experiences.
"We were using our art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together", Jay-Z concluded.
The duo had tied the knot in 2008. (ANI)
