Beyonce Is “Done” With Jay Z

Jay+Z+Beyonce+Knowles

Beyoncé and Jay Z are totally getting divorced for realsies, so claims Us Weekly. Rumors of their impending divorce are nothing new, but the magazine is so dead set on it that they’ve made it their cover, essentially saying Bey’s not exactly “drunk in love” anymore.

From Us:

Now that the singer has finished the last of her On The Run U.S. tour dates with husband Jay Z, speculation about the couple’s marriage is at an all-time high. Fans are wondering if the spouses of six years will go the distance — but Beyonce is already making moves toward a split, sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Insiders tell Us the music superstar, 32, has a plan of action in place for if/when she decides to call it quits with her rapper hubby, 44, dad to her 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy. One source says “she is done” after their remaining On The Run shows in Paris, France.

[...]

A source previously told Us Weekly that the spouses “stayed separately” while in New York and L.A. for their On The Run tour. And another insider said Beyonce went without her husband to look for apartments in Manhattan, including a $21.5 million penthouse in Chelsea.

You know what? Let them be done already. I’m so sick of hearing about them. I’m pretty much sick of them altogether. If this actually happens, let’s just all pray it’s a swift and clean divorce, and not the media circus it will inevitably be, because I am so tired of hearing about Bey and Jey.

I don’t know if I believe Us or not (like how many freaking times have they declared Jennifer Aniston to be pregnant?) but I don’t think I would be shocked if they did divorce. Maybe that’s only because I don’t care about their lives all that much, and am not hugely invested.

Anyway, if they divorce, I’ll bet they announce it in October. Anyone else want to make a guess?

Blue Ivy might not be Beyonce’s, or so a woman named Tina Seals claims

beyonce jay-z blue ivy

All of you who have been saying from jump that Beyoncé hired a surrogate to carry Blue Ivy might start feeling a bit vindicated when I tell you this one: a woman named Tina Seals has filed a maternity suit against the couple claiming that she is the real mother of Blue Ivy.

From The Hollywood Gossip (so take this with a GIANT grain of salt):

A woman named Tina Seals has reportedly filed a maternity lawsuit in Manhattan in which she claims to be the mother of Blue Ivy Carter, Jay Z and Beyonce’s only child.

The rumored legal document alleges that Seals is seeking “to verify whether she is the biological mother” of the toddler and that she was “previously associated” in some way with defendants “Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z Carter.”

It’s nearly unheard of for a woman to file a maternity lawsuit because this somehow means Seals believes SHE gave birth to Blue Ivy instead of Beyonce… which is just an odd thing for the latter to have covered up and/or the former to have allowed.

Could she have had an affair with Jay Z, given the child up for adoption to the couple and is now having second thoughts?

It’s unclear, and it could be complete BS – but this scandal comes amidst incessant chatter that Jay Z and Beyonce are on the outs.

I want us all to be realistic with ourselves and realise that while this might be REALLY juicy if it were true, it’s most likely complete and utter bullshit and the woman behind the alleged lawsuit, if it’s real, is probably a walking insane asylum and/or trying to make some quick and easy cash. The kid looks like Jay-Z and it also has a bit of Bey from when she was younger. Blue Ivy is hers.

Shit like this makes it even more abundantly clear why I would never, ever want to be a celebrity.

Beyonce and Jay-Z might get divorced, after all

beyonce jay-z

There have been rumours swirling for months that Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s marriage is on the rocks and soon to end. While many brushed off those reports due to the fact that they’re, you know, on tour together and constantly posting photos of themselves looking relatively happy (or at least very much in the same place) on Instagram, the reports just won’t stop coming. Perhaps the most convincing bit of “evidence” is this piece from Blind Gossip (which correctly predicted the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes split, by the way):

If business-arrangement couples can sell a “real couple” image to the public, the couple becomes worth more than each celeb would be worth individually. Of course, that value goes up even more if they can take the PR relationship all the way to marriage and children.

We have told you MANY times before that this high-profile marriage is just a business arrangement. We have also told you that this business arrangement will wind down after their current project is finished. Well, it’s almost over!

They are splitting up everything (properties, money, child/ren) right now, but will be keeping up appearances until the announcement. They are separating this year, with the divorce to follow in about six months. It will be very clean and very fast. In fact, the parties involved are describing the timeline as “Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes fast.”

Well, that sounds about right. I don’t see what the big deal is about all of this, either – so what if they divorce? People do it all the time, and Bey and Jay are not these superhuman angels who are immune to real life relationship issues, in that sense – especially if one of you can’t keep it in your pants. Life does indeed go on even if they’re no longer together, and I can sorta see this being true.

Solange is “at peace” with that whole Jay-Z elevator fight

solange

It was only a few months ago when Solange unleashed a can of whoop ass upon Jay-Z in a New York City elevator after the Met Ball for… whatever reason. While the Knowles-Carter family released a collaborative statement insisting that they were all still on good terms following the incident, Solange has finally spoken out about it for the first time in a new interview with Lucky.

It’s a subject she expects in conversation but one she doesn’t want to focus on. She calls the incident “that thing.” “What’s important is that my family and I are all good,” she says. “What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.”

She is happy to discuss the values her parents taught both of their daughters: hard work along with unconditional love and support for each other. “We’ve always held each other down no matter what,” she says. “That’s something I’m drilling into Julez now.”

LOL at “that thing”. How flippant! This whole thing is done and over with (or is it?!) so I can see why she’d be over talking about it, but it’s bound to happen when you start beating your brother-in-law’s ass.

Did Beyonce admit that Jay-Z cheated?

jay-z beyonce

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are currently touring across America as part of their On The Run tour, but this is going on amidst (more) reports that Jay cheated on her. Some say it was with Rachel Roy, others say it was with women that aren’t really anyone of note, but the whole Knowles/Carter camp has kept quiet on this… until now?

During a show in Ohio last weekend, Bey sang one of her unreleased songs called ‘Resentment’, which is a big fan favourite but people outside the Beyhive won’t really know. However, she changed the lyrics in a way that made a lot of people think she might just be ready to admit that her husband was unfaithful…

ORIGINAL LYRICS:

I’ll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn’t do it for you like your mistress could

Been ridin’ with you for six years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me.

NEW LYRICS:

I’ll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn’t do it for you like that wack bitch could

Been ridin’ with you for twelve years [...] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me. She ain’t even half of me. That bitch will never be.

Huh. Jay-Z and Beyoncé have been together for 12 years now, so that part seems to fit. However, if the song was already about a man cheating on his wife, why did the lyrics even need to be changed? The song already applies. I suppose the “bitch” line makes it all a little more personal and heated, but I don’t think we’ll ever know what truly happened… unless she serves him with divorce papers on the final night of the tour or something.

Video of the performance is here:

What do you think? Did Jay-Z cheat on Beyoncé? Is this why Solange had to go and snatch his ass in that elevator?

Uh Oh… Are we starting not to care about Beyoncé and Jay-Z?

56th GRAMMY Awards - Show

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are America’s king and queen, right? Everyone loves them (I mean in the broader sense) and treats them like royalty. They’re even friends with the Obamas! With that in mind, you’d assume that the tickets to their On the Run tour set for this summer in the US would have sold out in seconds… but it seems that’s not the case.

From Radar Online:

A quick look on Ticketmaster reveals less than desirable ticket sales for the hip-hop royalty duo, with one industry insider exclusively telling RadarOnline.com their personal lives and a lack of airplay on the radio could be contributing.

According to the leading ticket sales distributor, tens of thousands of tickets are still available for the “On the Run” concert in Miami on July 25, as well as Atlanta on July 15 and a July 12 show in New Jersey.

These are metropolis cities across the United States that typically sell out concerts quickly, as they did with Justin Timberlake‘s recent “20/20? tour and Madonna‘s “MDMA” tour.

“Beyonce’s album had a big first month with ‘Drunk in Love’, but the last several singles have tanked on the charts,” the insider told Radar.

“If you’re launching a stadium tour, you have to have airplay, and she’s had no hits lately on the radio.”

“It’s overload. The public has been left with a sour taste in their mouth because of the elevator fight and all the information that leaked about Jay and B’s relationship afterward,” the source said.

True, true. It’s definitely a case of “too much of a good thing”. I enjoy them both as artists, but we’re being oversaturated with Bey and Jay and people are tired of it. There’s always an inevitable backlash when that happens. Does it mean the end of their careers? Of course not. It does mean, however, that we all need a nice little break, which shouldn’t be a bad thing. They should take some time off, too!

Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Solange hit up ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend…

solange jay-z

With everything that’s been going on in Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Solange‘s world over this past week, it’s no wonder they’re absolutely everywhere (more than usual), and even though they already put out a statement asking everyone to move on from Elevatorgate 2014, we still want to know what REALLY happened. And now we do.

The trio stopped by Saturday Night Live this weekend to reveal the truth behind the drama – and turns out, it was just a silly misunderstanding over an unwieldy spider.

LOL to that. In all seriousness, I really hope we can move on from this now that all the obligatory jokes have been made. And on a more “serious” note, here’s a fake movie trailer/real promo trailer for Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s upcoming summer On the Run tour:
