Earlier this year, Beyonce stated in an interview with L.A. Confidential: “Fortunately I haven’t had any break-ups! This is my first relationship” in reference to her relationship with Jay-z. However, as always when you become a star, ex-boyfriends and old friends begin to come out of the woodworks ready to sell their story to the highest bidder. A chef out of Houston by the name of Lyndell has somehow emerged over the last few weeks and he is telling whatever he can (which isn’t much) about his relationship with Beyonce when she was a teen. I’m not sure what he’s trying to accomplish, but he tells DC Rumours that if certain people weren’t involved, he and Beyonce would still be together….or atleast friends. He’s also asked about whether they had a sexual relationship and if the rumors are true that she was pregnant.
SG: Glad to hear that. How did you meet Beyonce?
LL: We were very young in our teens. From the same area in Houston. We knew each other a long time. We were very close and very good friends. (silence)
SG: Ok, Define friends.
LL: (laughs) We would go out together, I would take her to the movies or we would eat out. Normal things teenage kids do. It was “puppy” love.
SG: So you were in love with Beyonce?
LL: Love is a strong word for a teenage relationship but we were very close and I cared A LOT about her. I still do.
SG: Are the rumors true that you got Beyonce pregnant and she had to have an abortion?
LL: You know, when I heard this rumor I was really upset by it. Unfortunately, at the time I was not able to speak on it and people were allowing the speculation to go around. Beyonce as far as I know did not have an abortion.
SG: So you and Beyonce did have a sexual relationship?
LL: No comment
SG: (laughs) Ok I think you answered that already. When you say you were not able to speak on things, what do you mean by that?
LL: I watched Destiny's Child grow, I knew all the girls and I saw them progress. I was there when they got their first deal, when they rehearsed. I was a close member to the family even though some people didn't approve of me being there. The DC Empire looking back now was very cleverly orchestrated and every member of the team was under a microscope. Whether that was on a personal or working relationship. Anyone close to those girls, especially Beyonce at that influential time in her life was a threat. It was all about Focus, Focus, Focus. Apparently, boys don't equal focus which I kind of understand.
SG: Who were some people?
LL: Im still not allowed to say. But trust me there was and still is.
SG: You sound slightly bitter about the situation.
LL: I am slightly. I am sure if other people did not get involved, Beyonce and I would still probably be together. At least be in contact.
SG: So you don't speak to Beyonce anymore?
LL: No, we have not spoken in a long time. I see her family sometimes around Houston but it isn’t what it was.
SG: I get the feeling you were warned off.
LL: I don't really want to make any further comment on it.
SG: Ok. When you see Beyonce and how popular she has become how does it make you feel?
LL: Well obviously I am pleased for her. I think she has done amazingly well, just as much as the other girls. I knew LaTavia, LeToya and Kelly. They have all done so great. I wish them nothing but success. They are doing what they thrive off and so am I. I wish them nothing but good health and happiness.
SG: So you don't look at Jay-Z and be like “Oh that could have been me”
LL: (laughs) Not at all. I am in a very happy place in my life.
