After video footage of Jay Z being seemingly assaulted by Beyonc√©‚Äės sister, Solange Knowles, leaked onto the Internet, the world began to speculate about martial problems between the ‚ÄúCrazy In Love‚ÄĚ collaborators.
Now ‚ÄĒ according to the New York Post ‚Äď the ‚ÄúSingle Ladies‚ÄĚ singer has been looking at a $21.5 million Chelsea penthouse without her husband, and fans are interpreting this as the latest sign for an imminent divorce.
E! News‚Äô Ken Baker dialed in to On Air With Ryan Seacrest early Wednesday morning to address the trending tabloid rumors, claiming, ‚ÄúNo one has that [information].‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúIn fact, Jay Z and Beyonce have been making fun of the rumors of them breaking up, and also, maybe she‚Äôs looking for the two of them,‚ÄĚ he explains. ‚ÄúOr she can just be buying an investment property.‚ÄĚ
Ryan also weighs in and says, ‚ÄúThe bottom line is that there‚Äôs no story here.‚ÄĚ
According to Ken, the ‚ÄúXO‚ÄĚ singer‚Äôs solo apartment search would not have sparked a media frenzy and divorce speculations if it weren‚Äôt for the May elevator incident.
‚ÄúThe bottom line is, I‚Äôve been doing this for a long time. I stick to what I know,‚ÄĚ he concludes. ‚ÄúWhat I do know is that they‚Äôre together, they‚Äôre on tour every night, they‚Äôre making fun of the rumors, and I know that they had a bad incident in that elevator. But beyond that, I don‚Äôt seen anything else.‚ÄĚ
The notorious elevator fight ‚ÄĒ which was first reported by TMZ ‚ÄĒ took place at the Standard Hotel following the 2014 Met Gala on May 5. The Carter-Knowles family released a joint statement days later, stating, ‚ÄúAt the end of the day, families have problems and we‚Äôre no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We‚Äôve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.‚ÄĚ
Do you think Bey is ‚ÄúOn the Run‚ÄĚ from Jay Z, or are people over-analyzing a mere property investment? Sound off in the comments section below.
