I think yall are being naive into thinking she wasnt originally with him for the money. He's obviously richer now then ever before but he was still rich as fuck back then. He had already went platinum 5 or so times before he got with Beyonce and he has his Rocawear clothing line that was popular as fuck back then. Destinys Child went platinum but you're forgetting that dough was split three ways...Beyonce herself was not a millionaire. She didnt get millions till after she went solo. She eventually got with Jay-Z and got even bigger. She's a major artist today because of Jay-Z, in my opinion.
