Jay Z and Beyoncé have been together for over a decade, and it would be hard to imagine that their union is ending. But over the past few months, rumor has it that the dynamic duo is heading towards divorce, six years after exchanging wedding vows. Jay Z has allegedly been cheating on his wife with a number of women, including protégés Rihanna and Rita Ora, and an NYC VIP club waitress, Casey Cohen. Ora and Cohen have denied the rumors, but that has not stopped people from talking.
On Thursday, Tina Knowles, Beyoncé’s mom, blamed the rumors on jealousy. “Haters gonna be haters and there’s nothing we can do about that,” she said when asked by TMZ about Beyoncé’s relationship. “Everything’s perfect.”
However, during their “On the Run” tour, which is currently on a five-week break before resuming in Paris, Jay Z and Beyoncé reportedly did not even stay in the same hotel room while travelling. “They’re not just staying in different hotel rooms, but they have booked separate hotels, and they arrive separately to each show,” a source told the New York Post earlier this year. “I’m definitely not sure that they’ll make it to Paris. There are lawyers that have now joined the tour, and they’re not here just to see them perform. They are here to help hash things out.” Let’s take a look at their relationship over the past 10 years.
