Beyonce and Jay Z on the Verge of Divorce?


There are currently many speculating that Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z are on the verge of divorce. The rumors started in earnest after the fight between the superstar’s sister and her husband, but there have been some tell-tale signs throughout the years. However, the former Destiny’s Child star likes to make her life look like a fairytale, and divorce is not part of that.

Many will now already be familiar with the recent episode of Solange Knowles and Jay Z. The two were seen arguing on lift security footage leaked at the Met Gala after party. There have been a range of reasons given for the argument, including Jay Z’s lack of support for the younger Knowles sister and the way he treats his wife.

Beyonce has always tried to portray the look of the perfect family. Her private life is kept behind closed doors the majority of the time, unless it will work for her or her husband’s advantage. She also stays out of fights, partially due to her pacifistic preferences. That was the reason given when she refused to get involved in the argument in the elevator.

There are many speculating whether it was the younger Knowles sister over reacting at something at the Met Gala after party, or whether there was something else to it. According to people close to the family, there could be something more to it. In fact, Beyonce and Jay Z may be on the verge of a divorce.

The fight at the Met Gala was not the only sign that she is considering a way out. Just recently, she was photographed with her wedding ring tattoo removed or covered up. The tattoo was something the couple got to show that their love for each other was permanent. It seems like the songstress wants to cut all reminders of this of her life out as soon as possible, so she can make a clean break.

However, she will try everything to keep the family together. There is more than her reputation to think about, such as her daughter and their joint fortune. Together, the power couple is worth around $900 million. It would be tricky to split that up fairly, depending on the reasons for divorce.

Friends believe that divorce is the only option. Beyonce is fed up of the rumors about cheating, and seems to doubt her husband’s loyalty to her. According to sources, she did not want her husband anywhere near Rachel Roy, Jay Z’s former business partner’s ex-wife. Solange Knowles was just expressing her sister’s wishes, which Jay Z refused to accept and acknowledge.

There is trouble between them, and it is leading to that fairytale facade being destroyed. The best thing for the singer superstar would be to end her marriage and walk away. However, there are doubts that she wants it to end to keep the fairytale facade up.

Right now, the couple needs to do the best thing for the family, especially two-year-old Blue Ivy. That could mean that Beyonce and Jay Z really are on the verge of divorce.

    So sad that people are in everyone business. So it is written, divorce is final with a written request and sign by both parties, now is that any of our business. No! If no paper no divorce.

    Uggggh this is just really dumb as f*ck. I mean really. People shouldn’t believe everything they see on the internet cuz everything is not true. This may or may not be true. Celebrities these days think and act differently from when they did when they were younger like in their teen years. Tbh it’s just dumb how people make up bi**hy *** rumors about something really stupid. I mean I’m not saying anything critical about Jay Z’s & Beyoncé’s marriage but this is really getting out of hand. And even if this story is true it wouldn’t even pretty much matter anymore. It’s not like it would be the end of the world or something. Everyone knows how it is. You get in a relationship, you break up, and then rumors start to spread. It’s just life. I mean seriously it’s just really stupid how people would really believe that Jay Z & Beyoncé are “breaking up”. No one is perfect and no one can predict the future.

    I could care less because those people don’t give a heck about what I think. they can purchase me a new house and ride and write that off to Uncle Sam. I am dead serious. please contact me Bey or Jay

    People need to get a life and mind their own business! Sound like a bunch of hatere! Mad ’cause you’ll never have what they have! SMH……..

  6. tia   May 26, 2014 at 7:28 pm

    I feel sad for her too!!Jay ain’t right.. You can tell he cheats by the words in his music..!! That’s diryy ! I thought Jay was better than that..!!smh

  7. sorry not sorry   May 25, 2014 at 9:50 pm

    I hope they do get divorced. Yes, I know that sounds mean but I think Beyonce tries too hard to portray a perfect life and marriage and frankly, she seems to believe she’s better than others and she most certainly isn’t. It is selfish and egotistical to skip a friend’s wedding because you don’t agree with the person he’s marrying. Thats not your place. A good friend is supposed to be there for their friends despite personal feelings; at least when it comes to something as important as a wedding. I think that was a b***h move Jay Z and Beyonce, especially on Jay z’s part.

    • Kay   June 1, 2014 at 5:35 pm

      She never said she was better than anyone. Obviously you must think she is. Stop hating.

  8. Thelma King   May 25, 2014 at 6:19 pm

    Beyoncé has always been fake, she allowed the love of money take her from GOD, all this is karma it’s more to come., she decided to follow the devil she sold her soul., it goes to show you some people can be purchased

    • Kay   June 1, 2014 at 5:38 pm

      Do you know how ridiculous you are sounding. You need help. Usually people who are Godless accuse someone else who is when they’re not. Get a life. If you’re so religious crack a bible and read thou should not cast the first stone. You are not perfect either.

  9. ace   May 23, 2014 at 1:19 am

    I think jay z is a douche bag no offense but I feel like beyonce looks like a wife thats sad and unhappy her eyes look so sad and feels stuck

  10. Mrs.C.   May 22, 2014 at 7:24 pm

    Speculations!! People don’t know the story so they(media included) make up ones but whose to say. Hope that they can move past all this foolishness and come together Prayer works if God be for them no one can be against them. In the end its ultimately their decision and their business. It just makes for a good story!! True or False.

  11. khan   May 22, 2014 at 6:22 pm

    this article is so off, its almost like the writer wants them to be divorce or she is over joyed at the prospect of a divorce….jeez, which marriage is without problem. Everyone is talking about a facade of a perfect marriage, becuz the lady doesn’t want to air her dirty laundry like some celebrities doesn’t mean she intentionally putting a perfect marriage facade. Am sure they have problem, they just refuse to let the public know becuz its not their business. if thats a facade then so be it

  12. Lisa Marie   May 22, 2014 at 4:55 pm

    Some people are so evil. The devil hates God and marriage. Anyone who purposely tries to break up male and female relationships, or wish they fail are definitely doing his bidding.

  13. shidu azam   May 22, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    Guys this will be a very big impact for lots of marriage in the world , negative impact , millions of women’s they have beoncey as they’re rol model , whatever beoncey does they want to do .so people must be ready for divorce

  14. Cheeky   May 22, 2014 at 3:42 pm

    Beyoncé has made up her mind – she is done. Proof – tat removed a month ago, long before the elevator scene. It is rumored that they have not been living together for awhile – yuk, who would want to lie next to him, not knowing where he has been,

    being honest isn’t hateful. truth is, we all make mistakes. weak is for the weary. live life to be happy. not for others to be happy. being rich doesn’t make perfection. that’s the promise of being sure before vows. never wait until it’s too late. everyone deserves respect & happiness. devils always camouflage themselves behind money. these celebrities say what they think you want to hear. not the truth. money is their happiness & they do whatever to achieve more than they need. if Beyoncé wants to lose her self respect for the love of man, that’s her burnt soul. she knew about jay before she married him. I don’t like women who portray to be independent & then let a man say “eat the cake Anna-Mae”. pretend to be so strong & say “without you I don’t have life”. these celebs & their stunts to get richer is pathetic. funny how you never worry about people & their opinions, but reputation & image is everything. RESPECT takes you where dollars won’t!!! Beyoncé is losing respect as a strong black woman. STOP GETTING PIMPED BY JAY Z!!!!!

  17. ZARA   May 22, 2014 at 12:36 pm

    “Her private life is kept behind closed doors…” Ummmm…Yea! Everyone, including celebs (Reminder: They’re humans too), has a right to NOT showcase their PRIVATE LIFE on social media and/or reality TV. And when one chooses not to do so their life instantly becomes a mystery novel and the onlookers take on the role of Sherlock Holmes. The endless down-talking of one for being PRIVATE…will it ever end? What a strange world we live in.

  18. Monica Dumas   May 22, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    It is so sad to see that “people” can write, analysize , and give “options” like they have know Beyonce and Jay-Z. This lady needs to get a life of her own and write something that does not sound hateful and trashy. How dare she even mention that a husband and wife should divorce. This why the internet has become just the piece of trash it now is.

  19. Queen B   May 22, 2014 at 12:07 pm

    The article clearly states that it is her opinion and not fact. She is not the only one that has reported this information so telling her to kill herself is just going too far. To take this article so seriously means their is something wrong with your twisted mind
    Even Beyoncé wouldn’t condone this sort of behaviour and no one knows the true story either. So no need for all this horrible talk

  20. Davina   May 22, 2014 at 12:02 pm

    @ Alexandria, ooh you should be very ashamed of yourself because your article drools of spite and envy. You don’t sound like someone that is married talk more of being happy!

    • shidu azam   May 22, 2014 at 4:39 pm

      Thanks for the observation Davina

    • Alexandria Ingham   May 24, 2014 at 4:56 am

      I’m not going to be ashamed of my opinion, and I’m not going to be ashamed that someone doesn’t like something that I’ve written. If that was the case, I’d never write anything. Saying that I don’t sound like someone that is married is your opinion, and I respect that. It’s certainly not the case, and if you can get that from just one story out of the thousands that I have written online over the past three years then you should be ashamed of yourself.

  21. D Reid   May 22, 2014 at 12:00 pm

    The story does say it’s an opinion piece, not a journalistic piece. It’s not well written though. It’s written like an informal conversation between two girlfriends. It’s redundant and gossipy. I hate it. Though I doubt the writer is jealous and waiting for her shout at Jay

  22. I. Ronic   May 22, 2014 at 11:57 am

    Feel bad for you son, 99 problems and the B*tch IS one.

  23. adrianne   May 22, 2014 at 11:48 am

    It was a simple article based on rumors going around that the author chose to comment on. To chastise her for that is laughable and to tell her to go kill herself because she was doing her job as a journalist which is to provide all sides of media iNCLUDING gossip and opinion pieces to the websites’ audience is unprofessional and shows the purest firm of ignorance. All of you trying to defend beyonce by bashing the author should be the ones who feel ashamed beyonce would probably be embarrassed at you all for telling someone to kill themselves over a simple article based on rumors and sources going around the Internet. And furthermore Beyoncé doesn’t need you all to defend her especially not in an uncaring manner. Beyonce is a strong women who at anytime can address these rumors if she has chosen not to her fans should stand behind her and respect her decision not attack everyone who comments on the rumors.

  24. Dana   May 22, 2014 at 11:36 am

    Its ridiculous how people like you (the journalist) can write all these opinions about someone’s life and not know anything factual about them. Yes you have read articles about them but its the opinions of what other write about them and you think its right or fair to say ”i can say what I want about them its my opinion”. Whether its your opinion or not your spreading her personal life like you’ve lived it personally! Its sad that your more than happy to spread the news that a family may or may not be broken. As you’ve stated your a happily married woman, how would you feel if someone stated your husband was possibly cheating on you? And everyone is saying your to proud to leave him because you don’t have enough self worth, (which is what your ”opinion” is basically saying without sugar coating it) personally im not a fan of Beyonce’s character however that doesn’t give me the right to speculate on her life. How would you feel if your opinion was the one that broke the camel’s back? Just like the person who said kill yourself, what if you were having a bad day or week whatever, you might just kill yourself…. now imagine millions of people telling you this? All im basically saying is just be a little more sensitive and mindful of what your writing.

    • Alexandria Ingham   May 24, 2014 at 5:07 am

      I was going to offer a detailed answer to this, but I realized afterwards that it become more of a rant and was unprofessional, so I’m not going to bother. All I will say in return is that at no point have I said Beyonce has no self worth. That thought never even crossed my mind. You have put that comment out there.

  25. Sylvia Person   May 22, 2014 at 11:34 am

    Relate don’t speculate. Honey they have too much money to divide, and waited to have Blue so they both could enjoy her. Bey and J will be just fine.

  26. Alexandria Ingham   May 22, 2014 at 10:50 am

    For the record no I am not a jealous school girl and have no interest in Jay Z. I am happily married. It is clearly stated as an opinion piece based on a recent article and precious ongoing news. There is a space for opinion pieces on this website because not all journalism is about being neutral. The fact that someone can get so annoyed and tell a writer to go kill herself just shows how unprofessional that person is. I am not ashamed of myself in the slightest.

    • Kay   May 23, 2014 at 2:50 pm

      I agree that people shouldn’t tell you to kill yourself but you’re writing this as if you are a close confidant, but you’re not. For you to act like you are a clairvoyant to this matter is ignorant. If you’re not a part of their circle don’t act like you are.

      • Alexandria Ingham   May 24, 2014 at 4:52 am

        I’m not writing as if I’m a close confidant at all. I’ve clearly stated that a friend has said something. Where are you getting that I’m acting like part of their circle?

  27. Kay   May 22, 2014 at 9:47 am

    This journalist has such an unfair bias against Beyonce. The whole point of journalism is to report the news not insert your on opinions like a jealous school girl. This is very unprofessional.

  28. Queen Tiye   May 22, 2014 at 9:42 am

    The idiot who wrote this jealousy-brimming article should be ashamed of herself. She seems to be waiting for this marriage to fail as though she has a chance of becoming the next Mrs. Carter. Girl kill yourself.
