It’s hard to imagine why anyone would want to cheat on Beyoncé, but apparently Lyndell Locke made that mistake years ago. Bey’s childhood love recently did an interview with the U.K. Sun where he admitted cheating on her “messed up everything.”
“Who ever cheats on a woman as beautiful as Beyoncé? Well, I am that man and it’s something that’ll always haunt me,” he shared.
While many would assume the infidelity was caused by problems within the relationship, Locke insists that King Bey was the perfect girlfriend, even after achieving her initial success with Destiny’s Child.
“It was honesty a dream come true. But immediately after their first single she became a workaholic, focusing all her energy on her career. But we still find time with each other and I was never in any doubt about how much Beyoncé loved me- she would tell me all the time.”
Although Bey and Jay are happily married, Lyndell believes that could’ve been him if he didn’t cheat and waited for Beyoncé to be ready for more physical contact.
“It was hard as the chemistry between us was electric, but I respected Beyoncé and knew it was important for her to wait. So we focused on talking about when we would got married. We agreed on a beach. We couldn’t wait to start a family. Beyoncé would say, ‘I want us to be together forever’.”
Ah, to be young and in love. We can’t help but wonder if this relationship inspired the “Best Thing I Never Had” video?
