Someone might not be that crazy in love, if the latest tabloid headlines are to be believed: Apparently Beyoncé and Jay Z are taking a trial separation while Queen Bey is on tour, at least according to Star magazine via Celeb Dirty Laundry and Jezebel.

The magazine added via Jezebel that she feels "like a single mother" and "thinks he uses touring as an excuse to go out practically every night."

Star magazine via CDL added they purportedly reunited Down Under, and sources close to the “Irreplaceable” songstress said she wants the trial separation to be a test so she can figure out if they still enjoy their time together or if she’s too mad to forgive him.
