"You have to survive so you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions," said a remorseful Jay Z. The interview progresses with him further elaborating on the core reason that caused him to cheat besides the fact that he struggled to connect with his significant other because of these shut-down emotions. "In my case, it's deep. And then all things happen there: Infidelity."

The Why I Love You singer even thought of forever parting ways with his wife due to the guilt and pain he felt after cheating on her. However, after multiple rounds of therapy and consistent effort to work on his marriage, the two overcame the challenge and remain one of the most incredible power couples in the entertainment industry.
