Jay-Z and Beyonce kept their wedding a secret with “late planning,” he tells October’s O: The Oprah Magazine.
The rapper says that “very few” close family and friends were in attendance when the couple tied the knot at his Manhattan penthouse on April 4, 2008. Afterwards, they hosted a reception and invited Destiny’s Child group mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams and friends Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin.
“The sad part is that we offended some,” he says of keeping the guest list small. “But people who love you understand. Because at the end of the day, it’s your day.”
