They’re one of the most well-known celebrity couples on the planet earth. From “Crazy in love” to “drunk in love”, Beyonce and Jay Z have always expressed their undying love for each other through music while keeping their relationship extremely private and six years ago, they had their most private event—Their Wedding. Yes! its been six years since Jay Z put a ring on ‘it’ but there are no photos or videos from the wedding which is how the couple would like to leave it. but how did it all start?
Shawn Corey Carter and Beyoncé Giselle Knowles first set eyes on each other in 2001 but it was a year later when they collaborated on hit track Bonnie & Clyde, that sparks really started to fly. Beyonce was still a teenager at that time – Jay was 12 years her senior.
“I was 18 when we first met, 19 when we started dating. There was no rush. No one expected me to run off and get married,” the pop stunner later said.
And that’s exactly what they did – took it slow and built a friendship before falling in love.
“We were friends first, for a year and a half, before we went on any date, [we were] on the phone for a year and a half. And that foundation is so important in a relationship. And just to have someone that you just like is so important. And someone that is honest.”
