Beyonce's Ex-Assistant Drops Details About INSIDE Jay-Z & Beyonce's Relationship

Ever wondered what being in the room with Jay-Z and Beyonce was like toward the beginning of their relationship pre-nuptials?  Well a woman named Jessica LaShawn says she witnessed the crazy love between the two back in 2003 while she served as one of Beyonce's personal assistants.  And she's dishing how the two really got down.

 

Read on for the deets, plus a twitpic of Bey working in the studio recently...

Jessica Lashawn wrote this article for Chicago Now's website.  And the purpose was to discuss whether people can really find a soul mate meant for them in life, and how important sharing your life with that one special person really is.  So she used her former boss Beyonce as an example. 

 

Here's an excerpt from her article where she discusses Jay and Bey'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.  Bey turned into a girl with a school crush and Jay couldn't hide his feelings either, despite trying to maintain that rapper facade:

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.

Everything was going well until Beyonce was informed that Jay Z missed his flight and wouldn't be able to make it to the show and perform. Her face went sour as she took a moment to squat on the floor and pout. She wasn't sad about him not doing his verse but the fact that she wouldn't see him as soon as she'd planned. She couldn't help but mumble to her mother that she missed him. She forced herself not to cry. Stood up and yelled from the top of her lungs.... "let's take it from the top." The passion and determination in her voice echoed throughout the empty theater as she stood on top of a short ladder that served as her entrance wagon.

Then a voice rang out saying "Hey You."

Beyonce's face lit up as she buckled her knees and covered her face to hide a child like smile followed by adorable cheeks red and wet with embarrassing tears. It was HIM. He walked in calm and cool but as he got closer he couldn't help but smile and reach out to her and hold her while placing his head gently on top of hers and shaking it. He said hi to her mom and mentioned that he wanted to fake her (Beyonce) out and say he wasn't coming just to surprise her and it worked. The two clicked instantly and started rehearsing but not before a hint of comfort was relaxed on their faces as they found solace within each others arms. After Beyonce let go and slowly removed her head from the chest of the man that inspired the lyrics to the song- she ran to her place- ready to start it all over again.

Every beat flowed effortlessly like water between the two. They stopped to acknowledge that this was their first time performing the song and even arranging choreography. The chemistry was amazing and I felt honored to have a front row seat for it all.

Loves it.

BONUS: Beyonce was recently in the studio for a 6-day stint with Kanye West's "Power" producer, Symbolyc 1 (who is also from Houston).  Here's what S1 he had to say about their session:

Me, Beyonce, and Caleb was in the studio last night killing it! Excited about session part 2 today! 2011 Let’s Go! Got session part 2 with Beyonce today! Excited to see what were gonna create today after last nights session. God is Great! S1 2011. Day 3: A couple meetings then back in the lab with Beyonce today. Yesterdays session was CRAZY! Stay Tuned…… Not going to bed anytime soon. Beyonce got us in here working and I’m luvin every bit of it. Me and Caleb on some other right now. Lol. My last day in the lab with Beyonce today. Finishing up some Monsters! Well it was supposed to be my last day in here with Bey but she wants me stay longer. 3 words. Rescheduling My Flight! Lol. Day 5 in with Beyonce again. Trying to finish these other production/song task up. Everything is sounding really GREAT and BIG!!!! Praise the Lord I made it back home safely! Had a great 6 days in the lab with Beyonce. INCREDIBLE music we made. Great start for #2011

Can't wait....

Well, I'm WAAAAY late in

Well, I'm WAAAAY late in finding and responding to this article. You people have made some VERY interesting comments but my only thought on the whole thing is that the author says Beyonce is "down-to-earth" because she went along on an errand to get her own water. My response is that, in my opinion, "down-to-earth" would be ALWAYS getting your own water. On the plus side, though, I'm glad to see they're helping people be employed!

NO their life CAN NOT be private and YES I notice that HE ALWAYS looks happier with RiRi! So they should escape together, to another planet. Beyonce deserves better and I think Chris does/did to! Nuff said! :/

As much as I love their

As much as I love their union, I don't see from his body language that he is madly in love with Bey. He never faces her, he is never beside her and he never smiles when he is with her. HE always looks annoyed in her presence and treats her like a person passing by. I have said this from the beginning. I don't see it at all. He acts super excited when he is with Rihanna something I don't see when he is with his wife. I am not trying to bash them, I would love for it to be real, but I am just focusing on observation. Don't know. I wish them the best.

Has anybody ever noticed that

Has anybody ever noticed that Jay-z always looks happier in pics with RIHANNA, for some reason. In pics with Bey he is always walking ahead, or behind, or looking like he doesn't really want to be there.
Anonymous's picture

I just think that when he is

I just think that when he is with Beyonce he is in protective mode, acts more like her bodyguard which is expected because he loves her. I just read his mode as that of a protector and I am ok with that. I think that when he is with Rhianna he is not in that mode, he can be his carefree friend self, Rihanna is not his woman so its like friends having a good time without responsibility. I hope that they survive the scrutiny of the media and continue to put each other's best interes first. Good blessings to them both.

This article does read like a romance novel. There are no private details revealed. Today's media will put anything in the headlines for attention, without regard to editorial principles.

This sounds like straight up

This sounds like straight up fan fiction. The dates are wrong,as many have stated...It's funny how these two want privacy for their relationship & then when people stop caring, they leak stories like these. No one cares if they are in love or not. Their love does not pay my bills and I don't pay theirs. The best thing about Beyonce posts are the comments! This chick is a cardboard cut out. She is fake as a two dollar bill. Give me a break with this overly worded romance novel.

I knew this one would bring the bitter black women out, how dare someone be in love when they are miserable souls. If this article were negative, they would have believed it in a heartbeat. But because someone is happy and in love, it just can’t be true. You bitter black chicks are disgusting, and this is the reason most of you will be single forever. Losers!

You sound more like a bitter

You sound more like a bitter "loser" than anyone else here. No one said Bey and Jay couldn't be in love. Where did you see that? Like I said, their love doesn't pay my bills. My comment was directed at the overly romanticized way the article was written & yes, I believe Beyonce is a liar and a fake. She can be as happy and as in love as she wants to be. No one cares. Why do black women have to be labeled "bitter" because we don't always fall for the stars thrown at our eyes? You sound like you need help. Also, I am not single...I've been married for over 7 years now. Maybe that's your story, but it isn't mine. Sorry to disappoint you.

If this was a negative

If this was a negative article, it would be believed in a heart beat. Anyone can see their relationship is not a "business arrangement" as some would like to believe. If you've seen photos of them vacationing all over the world, having a good time, and their body language, you would know otherwise. If you see the way they look at each other, you know this is not business. It's personal. In what business arrangement does the groom cry (as Jay did) at his wedding. And why is everyone in so much of a hurry for them to have kids. Everyone doesn't want kids. And believe it or not, some people want to enjoy some time as a married couple for awhile without kids. Be happy for them. I know I am.

Bey and J know what they are

Bey and J know what they are doing and how to do it. Never doubt that. There is no rush to have a kid. They are happy and living the life that we can only dream of. How many mothers wish that they had waited just a little longer to have a child? Many, many have. Children slow you down considerable. Luv to Bey and J. H-Town to Death!

Hi Yall, I'm Jessica LaShawn.

Hi Yall, I'm Jessica LaShawn. I had a lil ol' type that said 2003 I fixed it. I have also put up a picture to prove that I was there as I was NOT allowed to take pictures inside. This story is true and instead of bashing it know that it is a beautiful one. Thanks for reading my blog. I appreciate the feature on this site. Blessings to you all and if you dont believe it still go to my myspace or facebook and see some of the other work I've put in as a journalist and assistant. And the only reason why I am able to tell this story is because I was under contract with the agency hired by the BET Awards and not Beyonce. I think I've answered all of your questions.

if they are so happy and rich

if they are so happy and rich why doesnt 40 yr old Jay-z and 30 year old Beyonce sit down and have kids. LIke what is Jayz waiting for, what is Beyonce waiting for ? Is she waiting to save enough money to buy the Oscar ? please >something is definitely off with these 2. MEdiocre artists getting way to much publicity. Fake asses. Demoralizing the youth so that they can be richer, when will all of you proletarians finally get it. U spend hundreds to see her go on a stage and shake her ass and she uses that money and buys a bag and houses and then they diss u on their tracks and brag about how much money they have. dont give them your money.

Not everyone wants kids!

Not everyone wants kids! Damn. And if and when they get ready, that's their business. They too busy right now. I guess they want to have TIME to devote to a family should they have one.
Arbor Mist Is the Bomb!'s picture

Having children does not

Having children does not equate happiness. They will have a child when the God says so. Have anyone every considered the fact that maybe they are having problems conceiving and don't care to share that with the world. We really don't know their situation as to why they have not had kids yet so it's best not to my assumptions after all it's there relationship.
