On Beyonce wanting to abstain from sex:
“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.'”
On why he cheated:
“The bigger star she became, the more I didn’t think I was good enough. One night, when she was out of town, I went to a bar with friends and ended up sleeping with another woman. Over the course of a few years I cheated on her about five times, but I never told her until after we broke up.”
On when he knew things were really over:
“Once she began dating Jay Z, I knew we were doomed and I could never win her back. But I know that no matter what, she will always love me. I will always wonder ‘What if?’ and, given all we shared, I’m sure a part of her must feel the same way.”
“She was such a great girl who cared about me deeply, she even wrote her hit Dangerously in Love while we were together. That’s how in love we were back then. Initially my intention was to take a break from our relationship so I could go to culinary school and make a name for myself. But when I headed to Austin to do the course she quickly moved on with her own life.”
