Beyoncé and Jay-Z
The high-profile couple miraculously kept their romance under wraps for three years. People only started to speculate that they were an item when she was featured in his hit single “03 Bonnie and Clyde” and she returned the favor by collaborating with him for her dance hit “Crazy in Love.” Even with repeated sightings of the couple out together and enjoying beach getaways, they continued their staunch policy of deny, deny, deny.
They never flat-out confirmed that they were together. Even four years after suspicions arose, Beyoncé was still dodging the “Are you or aren’t you?” question, simply responding, “I don’t talk about that. I’m extremely happy.”
Neither party had pushed for the marriage leap, but Beyoncé was seen sporting a honking 18-carat engagement ring in the months leading up to the big day. She’s since swapped it for a simple band. The pair also sports matching tattoos of the Roman numeral “IV” on their ring fingers (they were both born on the fourth and their wedding was on the fourth) that they got before they said their “I dos.”
Still, it’s got to be easier to keep your life private when you’re too busy releasing hits and building your own empire to blab about each other. After a stellar 2008, they topped the 2009 Forbes’ Richest Couples list again with approximately $122 million in earnings, and individually ranked amongst the top 20 in the Top 100 Most Powerful Celebrities list. But you won’t see any of those empires overlapping anytime soon. Jay-Z revealed to Rolling Stone, “[We] pretty much stay out of each other's business.” That’s the stuff all good marriages are made of.
As for kids...did you really think she was going to spill about that? Let’s just say she’s in no rush.
