Beyonce’s Teenage Boyfriend Says She Needed Someone Like Jay-Z To Take Her To The Next Level


Beyonce’s teenage boyfriend Lyndall Locke talked to the The Daily  Mail about dating the superstar.

On Beyonce outgrowing him:

We were together for ten years. I saw the changes in her. She needed someone like Jay Z to take her to the next level. There’s no hard feelings.1280aa8b-a328-4c3b-81c3-121738232a7b


On when the relationship with Beyonce came to an end:

‘She started mentioning this other guy Jay Z a lot, casually dropping his name,’ he recalls. ‘I felt I was being edged out of her life.’1430919167_beyonce-knowles-467


Mr. Locke  story is included in the new book, Becoming Beyoncé,  celebrity biographer J Randy Taraborrelli, but he chose to speak because ‘it would be best for me to tell my own story rather than let anyone else tell it for me’.

He also admits to cheating on Beyonce twice:

 ‘I’ve never been a liar. I told her the truth which is that I lost my virginity to a girl from church. She cried and hung up on me.’ The pair split but reconciled. Lyndall believes it was because the Knowles family knew ‘I wasn’t after anything from them’.

He later cheated on her again towards the end of their relationship because she was constantly on the road and he felt ‘lonely.’ He says Beyoncé’s strong persona was inspired by her mother. ‘Tina was a glamorous lady who ran a house, worked in her hair salon and worked promoting Beyoncé as well as being a fantastic mother.’ Even when Tina’s husband cheated ‘she stayed strong and kept the family together’.
