We all know how private Jay-Z and Beyonce are…but if you’re curious about their relationship, and want to know more about the couple, one of Beyonce’s ex- personal assistants takes us inside Beyonce’s & Jay-Z’s relationship. Jessica LaShawn says she witnessed the crazy love between the two back in 2003 while she served as one of Beyonce’s personal assistants.
Here’s an excerpt from an article where she discusses Jay and Beyonce’s first time working together on a live performance, and how their love for each other was so obvious and powerful that everyone around them could see:
During the BET Awards in 2003 I witnessed the makings of a real relationship between two overly focused individuals willing to sacrifice and make time for each other in the midst of accomplishing their personalized greatness. I was the personal assistant to Beyonce while she prepared for the debut of her new single Deja Vu. I can recall having the song on repeat throughout the duration of my flight from Chicago to LA and feeling captivated by the 808′s and horns. There was something about the song that made me feel as if I were being transported to another place all in the name of love. Like most people, I soon realized that the passion hidden behind Beyonce’s vocals was fueled by her devotion and love for none other than Jay Z.
I sat there in amazement as I watched Beyonce go over every step as if her life depended on it. I’d heard all the stories and rumors that she was evil and possibly the daughter of Satan but none of that surfaced. A prime example of her down-to-earth-ness was displayed when she happened to be thirsty and it was my job to get her some water but she chose to go with me in order to ease her mind. She was sweet and reminded me of that home girl we all have that no matter what she just wants to laugh at the end of the day.
