<p id=”par-1_37″><a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/tag/beyonce/”>Beyoncé</a> and Jay-Z have worked hard to maintain their <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/how-long-has-beyonce-been-married-to-jay-z.html/”>decades-long marriage</a>. So when Beyoncé saw someone get a little too comfortable with Jay-Z, she made sure to step in to protect what she and the mogul built.</p>

<p id=”par-2_64″>Beyoncé has shown that she’s more than ready to defend Jay-Z if the situation calls for it. In a 2022 interview with <em><a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTqafU2dWeg&t=2112s” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>The Breakfast Club</a></em>, 50 Cent once recalled an event he attended with his on-and-off-again hip-hop rival. When Beyoncé saw 50 Cent heading toward the Brooklyn emcee, she ran to Jay-Z’s defense, as she was well aware of the <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/50-cent-once-hinted-he-made-jay-z-retire-for-three-years.html/”>history between the two</a>.</p>

<p id=”par-3_27″>“She jumped out,” 50 Cent said. “I’m like, ‘Wait, what is you doing? That’s me and Jay-Z’s stuff; this ain’t got nothing to do with you, girl.’”</p>

<p id=”par-4_15″>At the time, even 50 Cent was surprised by how well Beyoncé stood her ground.</p>

<p id=”par-5_40″>“I was like, ‘Oh, s***!’ I didn’t really know what to do,” he continued. “It was one of those situations where you were like, ‘Woah!’ If you say this to Jay, he’ll look at you and go, ‘Nah, that happened.’”</p>

<p id=”par-6_47″>Beyoncé had a similar situation during another party with Jay-Z but under different circumstances. According to comedian Tiffany Haddish, she attended the same party Beyoncé and her husband did a few years ago. During the event, an unnamed actor was getting a little too familiar with Jay-Z.</p>

<p id=”par-7_90″>“I was talking to Jay-Z for a little bit,” Haddish once said, according to <a href=”https://www.contactmusic.com/beyonce-knowles/news/tiffany-haddish-beyonce-jay-z_5993562″ target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>Contact Music</a>. “And there was another actress that was there who was also talking to Jay-Z. She touched Jay-Z’s chest, and Beyoncé came walking up like, ‘B***h!’ But she didn’t say that. But her demeanor — her body from the way she walked up on them said, ‘Get your hands off my man’s chest.’ So then she also started talking to the other actress, and some other stuff happened, but I’m not gonna say nothin’ yet.”</p>

<p id=”par-8_14″>Additionally, it seemed that Haddish was also ready to intervene on her friends’ behalf.</p>

<p id=”par-9_37″>“I’m not at liberty to say what went down at the party, but Beyoncé was just telling me to have a good time, and I was like, ‘No, I’m gonna end up fighting this b****,’” Haddish said.</p>

<p id=”par-10_50″>Jay-Z and Beyoncé also had to fight their own problems in order to keep their relationship afloat. It’s been speculated for years that Jay-Z <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/did-jay-z-ever-cheat-on-beyonce.html/”>cheated on his partner</a>, which might’ve been one of many challenges they faced. There are a few tracks on Beyoncé’s <em>Lemonade </em>album that allude to infidelity.</p>

<p id=”par-11_48″>For some time, it wasn’t clear if those songs recounted situations that actually happened or if they were allegories. In an interview with <a href=”https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/11/29/t-magazine/jay-z-dean-baquet-interview.html” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”>The New York Times</a>, Jay-Z didn’t outright say the rumors were true. But he did take accountability for the position his relationship was once in.</p>

<p id=”par-12_42″>“You know, most people walk away, and like divorce rate is like 50% or something ’cause most people can’t see themselves. The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself,” Jay-Z said.</p>

<p id=”par-13_19″>“So, you know, most people don’t want to do that. You don’t want to look inside yourself,” he added.</p>

<p id=”par-14_20″>He had a positive reaction to <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/beyonce-made-bold-statement-limiting-lemonade-release.html/”>his wife’s <em>Lemonade </em>album</a>, however, and didn’t mind Beyoncé potentially airing out her grievances.</p>

<p id=”par-15_57″>“And it was uncomfortable,” Jay-Z said. “And we had a lot of conversations. You know. [I was] really proud of the music she made, and she was really proud of the art I released. And, you know, at the end of the day, we really have a healthy respect for one another’s craft. I think she’s amazing.”</p>

<p id=”par-16_31″>The pair were originally supposed to make a joint album exploring their marriage. The only reason why they both produced solo projects instead was because Beyoncé’s own record was more complete.</p>

<p id=”par-17_85″>“It happened — we were using our art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together,” Jay-Z said. “And then the music she was making at that time was further along. So, her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on. Um, we still have a lot of that music. And this is what it became. There was never a point where it was like, ‘I’m making this album.’ I was right there the entire time.”</p>
