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.
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.

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…
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.
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?
