Just in case there are people who still think Beyoncé and Jay Z are heading towards divorce, a backstage video from the 2014 MTV VMAs released Wednesday shows Beyoncé kissing Blue Ivy before giving Jay Z a quick kiss on the lips. The short clip shows Beyoncé before she hit the stage at the end of the awards show to perform a nearly 16-minute medley of her latest self-titled album.
Divorce rumors should be all but non-existent at this point, after the famous couple gave a loving display at the VMAs Sunday night, with Jay Z presenting his wife with the Video Vanguard award, aka the Lifetime Achievement Award, after her performance. After Jay Z called her “the greatest living entertainer,” Beyoncé returned the compliment, saying, “my beloved, I love you.”
Since May, allegations of a split have plagued Beyoncé and Jay Z. But amid rumors the two are going to split in September, after their final shows in Paris for their “On the Run” tour, Jay Z is said to be trying to work things out. The entrepreneur reportedly cheated on his superstar wife with protégés Rihanna and Rita Ora, as well as singer Mya and a VIP hostess in New York named Casey Cohen.
Despite the allegations, “Jay wants everything to work out and is trying to convince Beyoncé how much he does not want a divorce. It's flowers, constant texts and telling her he loves her. He is pulling out all the stops," a source told E! In the midst of it all, Beyoncé has been relying on her family, mainly her younger sister Solange and mother Tina Knowles.
"Beyoncé is torn because she loves Jay so much and wants to keep their family together,” the insider said. “She's turning to family and God to help her through it."
