Can you imagine a world without Beyoncé and JAY-Z as a couple? Apparently, that could have been a reality if it wasn’t for little Blue Ivy Carter. After the rapper confirmed that he’d cheated on Bey in a candid interview with The New York Times (which, TBH, we kind of already knew from her visual album Lemonade, but still), a lot of us may have been wondering why she stayed. Well, according to new sources, they stayed together for the sake of their family.
“It was very rough for them to stay married,” an insider told People. “It took Beyoncé a long time to trust again. She was struggling to move on and forgive. But keeping her family together was very important.”
However, that doesn’t mean their marriage wasn’t hard work. The two also sought therapy to try and mend what was broken in their relationship.
“If it’s wasn’t for Blue Ivy, they might not be together,” the source continued. “It took them years to get to the point where they are now.”
The insider also added that the pair, who recently welcomed twins, “are very proud that they overcame huge marital issues and happy they were able to move on as a family.”
Suddenly, everything makes sense and we can stop speculating on the reasons why Beyoncé released an album like Lemonade. Not only did she need revenge, but she needed an outlet to let out her feelings about being cheated on in order to recover. Now, if only we knew the identity of “Becky with the good hair”!
Meanwhile, the famous power couple posed in front of an elevator three years after the infamous incident heard round the world. You might remember Solange making headlines after she went off on JAY-Z in an elevator at the 2014 Met Gala. Unfortunately, there was no audio to the tape, but footage of their argument went viral. In the video, you see Solange kicking and punching her sister’s husband.
Now, after all these years, Bey and Jay recreated the scene and allowed paparazzi to snap photos of them as they exited the elevator. Obviously, Twitter went wild for the photos – and some reactions are hilarious AF.

Hey, is it now safe to say we know why Solange beat up JAY-Z that night. She probably caught wind that he had an affair and decided to take matters into her own hands… If your sister’s SO cheated on her, who can say for certain they wouldn’t have the exact same response? It seems like all these Bey-related mysteries are *finally* being solved!
