An explosive new book contains details about Beyonce and Jay Z’s relationship and the famous 2014 Met Gala elevator fight.

When Beyoncé was 15 and dating a boy from church who was two years older, her worried mom pulled him aside and asked that he wait until the soon-to-be superstar was 18 before they had sex.
“I can’t make you not have sex,” Tina Knowles told Lyndall Locke.
Locke agreed to keep his hands off Beyoncé. And whether or not he kept his promise is one of the few unanswered questions in celebrity scourge J. Randy Taraborrelli’s new tell-all “Becoming Beyoncé: The Untold Story.”
But Locke, who has spoken openly about being Beyoncé’s first boyfriend, remained her good time guy until she hooked-up with Jay Z — a Brooklyn bad boy a decade older than her, he writes.
And that sometimes stormy relationship is the meat of Taraborrelli’s new tome about the sultry singer.
Among other things, Taraborrelli — the author of scathing bios about Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Madonna and others — reports:
Beyoncé’s mom convinced her to go out on a date with Jay Z — and she was not too thrilled with the idea at first.
That was confirmed by Beyoncé’s uncle Larry Beyince, who said the rapper pursued his niece and she played hard to get.
“He was after her and she wasn’t interested,” the uncle told the author.
Once they got together, Jay Z began chafing at playing second fiddle to Beyoncé’s career and then in 2005 their relationship was rocked by a rumor that he was having an affair with singer Rihanna.
The bogus love triangle story was concocted by the then 17-year-old Barbadian beauty’s publicist Jonathan Hay to give her first single “Pon de Replay” a boost.
“It was all a stunt,” said Hay, who has made the same admission several times in interviews.
But Beyoncé believed it and for a year she and Jay Z were apart, Taraborrelli writes.
Rumors swirled that Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rihanna.

Even after the power couple reunited, Jay Z continued to cat around, Taraborrelli claims. But after Beyoncé put a ring on it, Jay Z’s cheating day were apparently over.
“He is basically nothing at all-and I mean absolutely nothing-like what you would expect him to be,” one pal told the author.
“Sure he has the swagger, he has the bad boy vibe, he has the dangerous gangster thing. But when it came to Beyonce Knowles, all that s–t had pretty much melted away by 2007. Everyone could see that she was his biggest concern.”
Still, Rihanna continued to haunt the couple and helped spark the infamous elevator beatdown of Jay Z by sister-in-law Solange last year at the Met Gala after-party at the Standard Hotel.
Recycling a story that The Daily News reported at the time, Taraborrelli writes that Solange Knowles went after Jay Z because he wanted to party with RiRi and Beyoncé said no way.
“Why can’t you go home?” a drunken Solange Knowles said to her brother-in-law as they left the swanky soiree.
When Jay Z told Beyoncé’s sister to mind her own business, she went wild in the elevator, throwing punches and kicks as a security guard tried to pry her off of him.
Beyoncé is a hands-on mom, even though Blue Ivy is often in the care of nannies and has had as many as three at one point. She even drew up a strict regimen for her daughter’s caregivers entitled, “Daily Program for Blue Ivy as per Mrs. Carter.”
Tarraborrelli writes that Beyonce and Solange have refused any contact with the two children their father Mathew Knowles had by other women.
Actress AlexSandra Wright claims that before she gave birth to their son, Nixon, in 2010, Mathew Knowles had “floated” the idea that she give up their baby to be adopted and raised by Beyoncé and Jay Z.
“I can’t imagine that she and Jay Z would have ever agreed to raise a child born to her father and a woman who was not her mother,” Wright told the author.
In 2014, a paternity test showed Mathew Knowles to be the father of a baby girl, Koi, born to a former model, TaQoya Branscomb.
