    It’s amazing how no one had any issues with their marriage till the elevator incident. But now everyone has suddenly become a marriage counsellor.

    Akon sure sounds stupid. How on earth is it mandatory to give people an update on your life because you are a celebrity? That has nothing to do with being a role model. Certainly not your private life. Especially when you don’t want to. People could speculate all they want. I fink its high time people know respect other peoples space. She is selling music and not her private life or a reality show. I guess in our homes we ve our bagage, yet we don’t spell it out. So let. People shld let this go

      You just jumped out and called someone stupid without even comprehending what his message was. He was just giving his analysis of the situation. Jay and Bey tried their best to keep things private from get go but when you’re a power couple like that people will speculate since you’re not saying anything. And till today Jay and Bey haven’t said anything. Just people speculating. For all we know they have no plans of splitting. Guess who is stupid?!

    Jay Z and Queen B are power couple even if they break 2day, the media won’t add to their popularity. Shout out to Akon for his honest interview…

    when you’re not delivered from the spirit of lust. ehm ehm only God can solve their marital issues. And it’s true what Akon said. I don’t blame her for keeping her relationship under wraps when they were courting. During that era, the media were on a frenzy in breaking up relationships. As soon as your story got out you a couple. The media was always on hunt to find some dirt. So Bey was smart on that part, by building the relationship. She equally after the birth of daughter started opening up her world more consistently. From then I knew something not right. she began portraying she is also human after all..
    The good thing is she is in the public eye, so lets reach out in prayer for their marriage and well being. In Jesus Christ Name Amen!

    Akon sounds “lonely” in his own voice!!! I thought he will pass on this topic but apparently he’s got something to say. Yea he’s wrong for trying to presume what’s hong on, but he’s also telling the truth when he said ” if they don’t come out & tell the truth” Folks will speculate all kinds of shit. They aren’t perfect couple but they act like if which kills me & it’s too much secrets with them. Yea it’s nobody’s business, but thru need to live their lives like everyone else “carefree” & it’s ok to make mistakes.

    All that akon said is completely true. When you’re a celebrity, it’s almost impossible to live a private life and that’s exactly what happened to the carters. Beyonce started off not revealing anything, now she is showing clips from her wedding, posting family pictures every day. now they are singing about giving tmz tmi and one billion dollars being in the elevator. As akon said you end up explaining things you shouldn’t need to in the first place. Nothing is hidden under the sun

    Hi friends, this may not be the right forum but i just want opinions on something bugging me. My mentor/friend opened up to me recently about his marriage issues and how he has cheated on his wife before and can even do it again if he has a chance as he isnt getting it from home. I felt bad cos i dont support such and i kinda felt betrayed cos prior to him telling me i had no idea he cud plausibly cheat on his wife as i always got the impression all was good with them n i kinda looked up to their marriage. anyway i dont know if am wrong to just not be judgemental about it and carry on with our work relationship as if i dont know that side of him. cos thats what i did and it bugs me atimes like am the devils advocate supporting him on that when on a good day i would heavily criticise cheating men. but this is kind of different this person is someone i look up to (he’s a really good person whom i really love and admire) and i just dont want any character depreciation factor to make me think less of think. i really dont know. i guess its none of my business in the first place afterall had he not told me i would not have known.

    PS. am a young woman and he also recently confessed affection for me but i made it clear to him it cant work (God forbid i’ll be the other woman when am still searching for my hubby) and he understood and even apologized. Then again i wasn’t angry with him which i think isnt right. i tried to be mature about it and told myself i understood tho i felt betrayed.
    After that experience i kinda understood better how Ese walter must have felt after she was coerced into adultery by someone she revered. Tho i wasnt abused, It was really hard saying no to someone who u respect so much and look up to. it is well i thank God and continue to pray for His grace and strength to say no to temptations no matter the person in authority.

      Ok. I will just wait and read the replies*popcorn n soda ready*

      my dear you better avoid that man like the ebola virus. all that talk about not being happy in his marriage is to elicit your sympathy and prepare you for his love confession . don’t fall for it. he knows you respect and admire him that’s why he had to establish a ‘good’ excuse for his philandering. the bible says to ‘flee every appearance of evil’. you might think you are strong enough to keep entertaining this man and not fall into temptation but i urge you to take heed lest you fall. carry your feet and run. dont say you were not warned

      Hello Elle, I honestly think you should get yourself another mentor as this person has lost the right to be called one in your life. We are all human beings and make mistakes but once trust is broken, it’s difficult to get it back. There was no need for him to have told you about his infidelity knowing the kind of respect you have for him. Apparently it wasn’t a mistake if he said he will still do it again (regardless of his excuse). I don’t know the kind of mentor he is to you (professional, social, moral etc) but he is meant to help guide you and be a kind of check to you. He is allowed to share his previous mistakes with you and the lessons learnt in order to help you avoid making same mistakes but only when necessary. In this case it is absolutely unnecessary and he has actually crossed the line by wanting you to be a part of his infidelity and if not that you were reasonable enough to turn him down, we will be reading a different story now- the apology was just to save face. Don’t disrespect him but you need to move away from him. Ultimately get closer to God and He will direct you to the right people. Give due respect but don’t place any body on a pedestal above that of humans because we are all capable of making mistakes. That way, when things like this happen, you won’t won’t be too disappointed.

      thank u all for ur advice. i sooo appreciate.

      to answer ur question he is my professional mentor, our relationship is work related. he is more like my direct boss and am stuck with him for at least 3 yrs before i get a better job elsewhere. He is very intelligent and has the best work ethic. but i know that he cant be any other kind of mentor to me. most definitely not relationship wise. whats wierd is he actually sounded unapologetic that its normal for men to be unfaithful, he also hinted that his wife strayed so i got the impression the 2 of them r married but living apart.

      anyway i didnt ask him to tell me and ever since he hit on me i do not entertain any personal conversations with him.
      i know its bcos am single thats why he dared to. God will change my story soon to a positive one. it’s all good.

    Not that it’s none (any) of our binessss…BUT I think Wendy Williams nailed it when she said Beyoncé is too image and business minded to divorce jay z no matter what goes down in that marriage…she will die fronting . Again, she has never slipped up until this elevator incident. So this girl works so darn hard to appear perfect…Wendy Williams even said its hard to see Beyoncé date, let alone have a good time as a single lady. I mean this chic has no friends and is too darn stuck up to hang eight other celebs. Nah….she is riding or dying on that jayz blue

      Miss expert on Beyoncé’s friends…pls enlighten us on her lonely status?….She keeps a small circle of normal friends and a few celebrities she trust, that’s a decent woman, also image minded or business minded Beyoncé has always been a private person, her booty shaking doesn’t mean she is an accessible person, she has always been like that growing up so it’s not a front. Y’al need to chill. Plus I think Wendy is just a tacky person. My honest opinion, is she even married? Den she should sit over there pls

      August 6, 2014 at 9:29 am

      she has no friends…like really……

    • Lindsey

      August 7, 2014 at 12:55 am

      Yep that’s what her mother said that growing up, Beyoncé was a quiet girl who kept no friends . Me I sha know that there is definitely trouble in that marriage and that’s normal but thinking these two will ever divorce? Gtfhoh. Nah.they would probably consciously uncouple but no divorce

    keep quiet Lindsey and all of u judging from the outside. I’ll never understand how people are able to analyse people they know nothing about, asides pictures and speculations of blogs. It’s like neighbours speculating that your father is wicked and unhappy in his marriage to your mom because he has a “stern face” like, what the actual HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    You just never ever know whatsup with people’s lives if they dont out-rightly tell you.
    So lets all just enjoy their music and concerts and keep our noses out of their private business. Like our families dont have worse drama.

    They signed up to entertain you with their music not their lives. Akon is just a darn black fool.

    its so sad that everyone has something to say about this couple…even Father of plenty aka AKON…like seriously,..,y’all think they front..they keeeping appearances,.. she posts her pics and yet they call her self absorbed…some are even advising her to drop the all are now authorities on thier marital life..they claim Jay cheated hence the elevator beat six brings up a new story daily about separate rooms, separate flights.. different stories everyday. And i ask myself, if Jay is really doing the dirty dog, dont yall think we should have seen evidences by now….all the self proclaimed side chicks who keep coming out seem not to have anything tangible..No photos, no sms, no voicemail, no hotel receipt, no selfie pics with even jay’s shadow, Nothing..zilch…if there is anything i like about these two is the enormous amount of respect these two command…different A Listers, Gwyneth paltrow, the beckhams, natalie portman, salma hayek, adam levine, nick cannon, blake lively, ryan reynolds, mariah, jessica alba etc just to mention a few seen with the crowd cheering and dancing…and some say she has no friends..yet you see a very pregnant kelly front row in more than 3 shows….
    Let them live thier lives and raise ther child in peace…..

    Elle, the apology is a phony one. And how the heck can you chop story which is meant to elicit sympathy or better still cause you to fall prey to a disrespectful man. How do you know his wife is straying? so if she dey stray and he is a professional mentor with an uncouth appetite, 2 wrongs make it alright. I use the word uncouth because when did it become public digest for mentors to inform mentees if they are getting sex at home or not.

    Professional relationships that discuss personal matters make me wonder who is deceiving who., the fox or the kitten? Blurred lines equal to blurred vision….. Elle face your work or better still find the better job wey no go cause you blurred vision.

    Those who fall prey to all this mumu stories should realize one thing ” karma aint no body’s friend, you’ll get served in this life or next ” so be mindful.
