Singer Beyoncé was noticeably absent while her husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy moved through New York City, leading to a speculation from Radar Online Wednesday that Jay Z did not look very happy taking the fatherhood responsibilities. The latest report by Radar Online comes as divorce rumors have surrounded the couple, who have been married since 2008, over the past few weeks.

In the photos clicked from their outing together, Jay Z was seen carrying their four-year-old daughter and hiding her face from the shutterbugs, as they entered from a town car into a building. The Radar Online report also said that Jay Z looked distressed by handling the responsibilities of being a father, without his wife by his side.

A report by Radar Online said last week that the couple’s marriage troubles were clearly visible to some of their friends, who attended a dinner arranged by them. The report cited a source, who attended the dinner, as saying that the couple seemed very detached from each other.

“They had a private dinner on Saturday for about ten people consisting of their inner circle, family and business partners,” the source said, according to Radar Online at the time, adding: “They could hardly have been more detached!”

The source continued: “Beyoncé and Jay Z barely spoke two words to each other the entire evening. She complained about the food that he had catered, and said that it was not her people that had made the meal,” adding: “But Jay Z was very dismissive to Beyoncé all night long and had disappeared before all of the guests had left.”

Another report from Radar Online last week said that the rapper was jealous of “Crazy in Love” singer’s success and that her move of promoting her own record label, Parkood Entertainment. “There is a lot of jealousy right now between Beyoncé and Jay Z because her career is at a super high point and, unfortunately, Jay Z has been relatively stagnant in his own career in comparison,” a source had told Radar Online at the time.

However, the report was debunked by Gossip Cop, which said that the report was false.
