Beyoncé and Jay Z are reportedly on the verge of a split, but the rapper is desperate to try and salvage their relationship. According to sources, the 44-year-old plans to take his wife on a five-week “make-or-break” vacation during a pause in their “On the Run” Tour.
Recent reports sound ominous for the couple, with the New York Post saying Beyoncé viewed a $21.5 million penthouse in Chelsea. “She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly,” a source told the publication. In addition, the home is reportedly less than half the size of the current apartment they share in Tribeca, sparking rumors that she is trying to downsize and live without Jay Z.
Since May, it has been reported that she and her rapper hubby would be splitting up soon, with allegations that Jay Z has been cheating on the 32-year-old with a number of beauties, including protégés Rihanna and Rita Ora. So will the vacation work in their favor?
A source tells the DailyMail, “Jay wants to save the marriage, they have their final US tour date in San Francisco on August 6 and then they have two dates in Paris from September 12 -- that's it. He adores his daughter Blue Ivy and he wants a sibling for her, but Beyoncé isn't sure what she wants to do - their marriage is in flux, that's the truth. Jay just wants them to spend some time alone together to try and work it out.”
