Neptunes producer Pharrell Williams hopes his pals Jay-Z and Beyonce KNOWLES never start discussing their romance in public - as it could "potentially dangerous" for them.

The pair have been together for more than two years, but have tested journalists' patience and frustrated fans by refusing to speak about their relationship - but Williams insists it's the wisest thing they could ever do.

He says, "It's incredible that my man found the right girlfriend and that my homegirl found the right dude. Sometimes the relationship is far more important than getting the world involved - it could be potentially dangerous.

"When you're ready to tell everybody, then you tell everybody. Love is sacred."
