Meanwhile, Beyoncé‘s stepfather Richard Lawson recently revealed that she and husband and Jay-Z will ‘confront the hard subjects’ on upcoming world tour.


Jay-Z made headlines with his high-profile infidelity,  with the rapper’s adultery coming to light on Beyoncé’s 2016 album ‘Lemonade’, with Jay later confirming the unfaithfulness on his ‘4:44’ record last year. Now, actor and Bey’s stepfather Lawson has said that the couple will be revealing more of their confessional side when they take to the stage for their ‘On The Run II’ tour later this year.
