Sean Paul Clears Up Comments On Jay-Z Jealous Of Him Being Around Beyonce

Somehow the media’s obsession with the almost two-decade-old story has forced the dancehall star to address the conspiracy on more occasions than necessary. “There were problems with the ProTools, which doesn’t usually happen. Sean Paul has stepped forward to clarify some recent comments alluding to Jay-Z being jealous of him being around Beyonce. Twitter
Facebook “So, what I did speak about in that interview was that there were some weird things that happened and that’s probably why people had rumors about it because a couple of times while on stage, we tried to perform [‘Baby Boy’] properly,” he said. It was probably her vision.”
Sean Paul also elaborated on what he said in the Bugerman interview that suggested something was amiss. According to Sean Paul, his experience has taught him that refusing to speak on something is usually taken to mean that something scandalous went down so he opted to agree that the situation was strange but maintained that everything that’s been whispered about him and Bey is merely a rumor. She’s very precise with her thoughts and her movements and she works very hard. They weren’t married yet,” he explained. Sean Paul spoke with HotNewHipHop for a new interview where he addressed the speculation once more. When I go to Texas, also, radio shows there, I don’t know what it is, people are like, ‘So tell me…’ and it gets to that part in that interview where they’re like, ‘What happened with you and Beyoncé?’ Nothing really happened. “You know, some of them made up their own mind. “It was a radio show here in Jamaica and I get this regularly. However, he believes his words were taken out of context after the interview. “I don’t think he would have influenced whatever her vision was. She’s a very determined person. While Sean seemed to agree that there was something odd at play, he never admitted to anything happening between him and the famous singer. Though Sean Paul met Jay-Z first, when he met Beyoncé, he found her to be rather meticulous and serious about her craft, so he highly doubts that her boyfriend at the time thwarted any of her career-enhancing efforts. There was problems with my mic in one performance in Germany. Sometimes with interviews, you can say, ‘I’d rather not speak about it,’ but then, people would think that something was going on,” he said. That’s the whatever. To this day, people still speculate that it was Hov’s raging jealousy that caused it. He went on to say a pivotal part of what he said in the recent radio interview with radio host Burgerman was omitted in most publications. For those who thought ‘nothing’ was code for ‘something’, SP made it abundantly clear that he never disrespected Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s relationship. Even though the gossip seems to be standing the test of time, basically spanning Sean Paul’s entire career, it was born out of pure speculation and fans simply blowing things out of proportion. The hit song was dope,” Sean Paul explained. “There were weird things that happened on stage with our performance, with the video. That’s probably why people started talking about [it].”
The dancehall star is chalking this rumor up to simply that – a rumor. “[Beyoncé’s] her own artist that was managed by her own manager. While he has clarified that nothing ever happened between him and Beyoncé several times now, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear this staple conversation piece come up in his interviews again. I know a headline said that ‘Oh, Jay-Z didn’t want me there.’ It had nothing to do with him as far as I’m concerned,” said Sean Paul. “So, I was trying to defend it like, ‘Hey nah, but weird things did happen, that’s probably why there were rumors,’ but people leave out ‘that’s probably why there were rumors’ part.”
Most of the details that fed the rumor all these years were deduced by fans who seemed to read into everything, including Sean Paul not getting the chance to perform the song with Beyoncé at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards. In a January interview with RJR 94’s Too Live Crew radio show in Jamaica, Sean Paul was cornered with questions about the long-lived conspiracy that Jay-Z was not very fond of him and was even quite jealous of him and Beyoncé. They were going out at the time.
