Beyoncé and JAY-Z Relationship Timeline

Wendy Stokesby:


Beyoncé and JAY-Z are one of the most famous and popular couples in the industry. Despite all of this, they have been keeping their private lives very low profile. It should also be noted that they started dating since the 2000s but they kept their relationship low profile just until they got married in 2008.

Just as any relationship, their relationship also has ups and downs. However, the album called Lemonade, 4:44 and their joined album called Everything is Love re just some of the first hints about the openness of their love and their relationship.

They have been dating for a long time, i.e., 7 years, until they got married on the 4th of April 2008. The marriage took place in New York City. It should also be noted that they did not exchange rings. Instead of this, they decided to have matching tattoos on the fingers where rings should be. They also said that they kept their relationship private since it was a real one and about them.


The first talks about Jay-Z being unfaithful took place in 2014 when there has been an incident between Beyoncé’s sister and Jay-Z in an elevator. This cheating and the pain that came later were the mottoes of her 2016 album called lemonade. Even Jay-Z has admitted that he has not been faithful.
