The first man Beyonce ever asked to "say her name" is giving a candid interview about their former relationship.  

Lyndall Locke, who reportedly dated a young Beyonce from the years 1993 to 1997, spoke to U.K.'s "The Sun," admitting that he cheated on the now-superstar "five times." 

Locke tells the tabloid that he and Beyonce were childhood sweethearts, and that being unfaithful to her is "something that will always haunt [him]."   He says their relationship ended when she started to become more and more famous with Destiny's Child. 

"The bigger star she became, the more I didn’t think I was good enough," he tells "The Sun" He goes on to say, "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."

He realized any chance to reconcile with her was "doomed" once she started dating her now-husband Jay-Z. 

He said, “Who cheats on a woman as beautiful as Beyonce? Well, I am that man and it’s something that’ll always haunt me." He added, “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."

Beyonce herself has spoken of a relationship in her youth, telling "The Telegraph" in 2008 that she only had one boyfriend before Jay, someone she dated from age 13 to 17.
