I believe that this is why God has blessed me with my twins.The masculine and feminine energy was able to coexist and grow in my blood for the first time.I pray that I will be able to break the generational curses in my family and that my children have less complicated lives, “he said.
Beyoncé also stressed that the family has a “lineage of complicated relationships, abuse of power and mistrust” and that it has also affected her. “Only after that did I clearly see that I was able to resolve these conflicts in my own relationship,” she commented, alluding to rumors that she would have been betrayed by Jay Z.
