Are Beyonce and Jay Z really on the verge of a divorce? None of us want to believe that Jayonce could be anything but blissfully happy -- but we all know there is something stinky churning below the glossy surface. Sisters do not attack brothers-in-law in elevators unless there's something rotten in Denmark. And now an insider who claims to know the couple very well says that Bey just may have purchased her own apartment for herself and Blue Ivy (do the math).
Beyonce apparently looked at a $21 million penthouse apartment in Manhattan -- and let's just say it reeked of bachelorette pad. For one, the apartment is half the size of where they live now -- and a source says that no way would Jay be "downsizing." Bey supposedly looked at the apartment alone and "on the sly."
Another source, or perhaps the same one, also shed some light on that infamous elevator attack. The insider claims that Solange wasn't pissed about Jay flirting with Rachel Roy -- as has been surmised -- but the fact that he planned to meet up with former protégé Rihanna later that evening, sans his wife. This apparently led Solange to conclude that the two were having an affair. Says the source to the New York Post's Page Six:
Solange was like, 'Enough is enough -- you must be [screwing] Rihanna.' To many people who know them, they know it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
Ew, just ew. What man would fiddle on the side with Rihanna when he's got Beyonce at home?! That's like sneaking some year-old beef jerky when you've got filet mignon waiting for you.
The source also makes it clear that the marriage is mostly business -- with their roles as husband and wife coming in a far distance behind from their primary roles as King and Queen of pop music. Says the source:
They are business people first, entertainers second. Husband and wife comes somewhere down the line.
