LIV, a female rapper who is gaining in popularity, has hit out against Jay Z with allegations that he tried to cheat on his wife, Beyonce, with her, Mediatakeout.com said in a report.
Although LIV does not give an exact date as to when Jay Z hit on her, she claimed during an Aug. 3 interview, with PNC Radio, that it was when he was already married to Beyonce. According to LIV, Jay Z reportedly told her that she was his “favorite female rapper” and he wanted to “call her whenever he comes to town.”
But, LIV reportedly turned down the opportunity to be his “in-town chick” because she did not want to build a career by being involved with influential rappers. LIV’s respect for Beyonce influenced her decision to stay away from Jay Z, she added.
"I have a lot of respect for Beyonce. As an artist, as a woman, as a wife," LIV said. "I could do a lot of grimey things, so I could get in a position, but I would have to look at myself in the mirror...Why not just work for it?... I'm not even on that. I'm not trying to compromise for this game," she added.
LIV’s encounter with Jay Z is detailed in her latest rap track titled “The Invasion: Part 2,” where she sings that she met the rapper on the set of a commercial, and that his guards approached her for her number.
“I know most chicks would have took the bait, but then those chicks be the ones I hate,” she sings.
Jay Z is yet to respond to these allegations, but in recent times, Jay Z has been very open in displaying his affection toward Beyonce. Early in June, Jay Z and Beyonce, who were focused on keeping their personal life under wraps, indulged in PDA by exchanging kisses right in the middle of their performance.
And, more recently, during her show at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on July 25, Jay Z surprised Beyonce by sneaking up onstage and stealing a kiss in front of 10,000 fans.
