Beyoncé did not let cheating rumors keep her from honoring husband Jay Z on Father’s Day this weekend. Since the May elevator fight with sister Solange, rumors have quickly spread that everything is not right in the Knowles-Carter household.
But on Sunday, Beyoncé, 32, posted an adorable photo on Instagram of Jay Z carrying their daughter Blue Ivy on his shoulders, along with the caption, “Happy happy Father’s Day.” The photo got more than 700,000 likes from fans.
On May 5, during the confrontation that took place after the Met Gala in New York, Solange, Beyoncé and Jay Z got into an elevator with Beyoncé’s bodyguard, and Solange is seen kicking Jay Z in a video obtained by TMZ. Beyoncé seems to do nothing as she stands next to her husband. At one point, Beyoncé’s bodyguard has to hold Solange back. But that does not keep her from kicking Jay Z. Toward the end of the video, Beyoncé seems to block Solange from Jay Z, and though there is no audio, it is evident that she is saying something to her husband.
When the trio exited the elevator, Solange and Beyoncé left the event in one car, while Jay Z left in another.
It is unclear what triggered the fight, but there were rumors that Jay Z and designer Rachel Roy were getting a little too close for comfort at the gala.
Afterwards, tabloids claimed that both Beyoncé and Jay Z have been cheating on each other and are heading for divorce. Beyoncé reportedly got too close to her bodyguard, Julius de Boer, and Jay Z allegedly has been cheating on the singer with VIP club hostess Casey Cohen.
While neither has addressed the allegations, last week Cohen hired a lawyer who wrote a cease-and-desist letter stating the two “have never been in love or intimate” and that the reports are “a foul and phony mistress-rumor.” She has admitted to meeting both Jay Z and Beyoncé, but only through her job at 1OAK. Cohen is demanding an apology from Bauer Publishing, the owner of InTouch, which put out the incriminating story. She also wants the magazine to apologize to Jay Z and his wife, in addition to the removing all incriminating stories regarding the alleged trysts.
