Beyoncé Knowles is known for her beginnings in the R&B group Destiny’s Child and for her music in her solo career which emphasizes women’s empowerment. But she is also known for being the wife of famous rapper, Jay-Z. Beyoncé and Jay-Z met over twelve years ago when Beyoncé was just eighteen years old. At first, they were only business partners and Jay-Z realized immediately that she had a remarkable talent. Since they met, they have recorded twelve songs together such as ‘Drunk in Love’ and ‘Déjà Vu.’ The two got married on April 4th, 2008 and their first daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, was born in 2012. Every fan was in love with the idea of Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Some even called them the ‘Power Couple.’ But is everything really going perfectly in their relationship?
On May 12th, a video was leaked of Solange Knowles, sister of Beyoncé, attacking Jay-Z in an elevator. Beyoncé and a security guard were also present. Jay-Z only grabbed Solange’s foot to protect himself and the security guard held Solange back. Beyoncé did not get physically involved at all. According to the surveillance tape, it is not certain what set off the assault. People are saying that this event is what caused Beyoncé to want to get a divorce from her husband. Several rumors have developed following the incident. Some fans think that, since it has been said that Solange may be a substance abuser, the drugs triggered the attack. The most popular thought is that Jay-Z cheated on Beyoncé and she was upset. Solange, in a rage, started to hit him for hurting her sister. Another rumor being spread is that Jay-Z has abused his wife. But there is still no exact proof of what happened. Some people are angered that Beyoncé watched and did nothing, as her sister beat her husband. This issue is causing quite a stir among the fans.
This summer, Jay-Z and Beyoncé are supposed to go on tour together throughout the United States. Will this conflict prevent the tour from occurring? If the two of them were to get a divorce, the world would not forget their relationship. The fans will always think of Jay-Z when they hear Beyoncé and vice-versa. The divorce of the power couple would devastate the fans of the performers.
So are Beyoncé and Jay-Z still crazy in love or will Beyoncé have to become an independent woman? Will the couple be able to overcome this obstacle and come out stronger than ever? Or will this be the end of the power couple? Can they stay together for their two year old daughter? Obviously there are many questions that the fans want answered. Keep your eyes peeled for any more news on the topic.
