When your ex has become an illustrious singer and a world icon, you have to feel some type of saltiness somewhere. Lyndell Locke, Beyonce’s first boyfriend, spoke out to The Sun this weekend. He and Beyonce dated for 9 years and for all of those years Beyonce held her virginity close by. She did not believe in sex before marriage and obviously Lyndell couldn’t wait so he went elsewhere.

On His Relationship With Beyonce:
Beyonce was the love of my life and I was hers, so losing her is still
my biggest regret. She would say to me all the time, ‘I’m afraid to
ever live my life without you Lyndall, I want you to be mine for
ever.’ I’ll be honest — it was me that messed everything up and lost
her for ever to Jay Z, but I deserved it. Who cheats on a woman as
beautiful as Beyonce? Well, I am that man and it’s something that’ll
always haunt me.
On Meeting Beyonce:
From the first time I saw Beyonce I couldn’t take my eyes off of her.
She looked like an angel, the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen. We’d
hang out after school and almost every night we’d fall asleep talking
to each other on the phone. On Beyonce Being An Outcast At School: She
was just so shy, she was a bit of an outcast at school and didn’t even
sing in the choir. For two years I didn’t know she could sing. We
spent hours watching movies together and playing Connect 4. Some of
our most fun times was when I watched Beyonce, her sister Solange and
Kelly performing dance routines. So while I had no idea how good her
voice was back then, I certainly knew she could move.
On Sharing Their First Kiss Together:
It was just after Beyonce’s 15th birthday. I surprised her with Brian
McKnight concert tickets and it happened that night. I had got popcorn
and as we were sitting in our seats I dropped it. As we both went down
to grab it we bumped heads, and locked into our first kiss. We both
just looked at each other realizing there was this incredible spark of
fireworks between us. It was that fairytale kiss you only hear about
in the movies. That was the first feeling of true love between me and
Beyonce. Still, to this day, I’ve never had another kiss as passionate
as that one.
On Cheating On Beyonce:
The bigger star she became, the more I didn’t think I was good enough.
One night, when she was out of town, I went to a bar with friends and
ended up sleeping with another woman. Over the course of a few years I
cheated on her about five times, but I never told her until after we
broke up. She was such a great girl who cared about me deeply, she
even wrote her hit Dangerously in Love while we were together. That’s
how in love we were back then. Initially my intention was to take a
break from our relationship so I could go to culinary school and make
a name for myself. But when I headed to Austin to do the course she
quickly moved on with her own life.
On Beyonce Dating Jay Z:
Once she began dating Jay Z, I knew we were doomed and I could never
win her back. But I know that no matter what, she will always love me.
I will always wonder ‘What if?’ and, given all we shared, I’m sure a
part of her must feel the same way!
