After video footage of Jay Z being seemingly assaulted by BeyoncĂ©âs sister, Solange Knowles, leaked onto the Internet, the world began to speculate about martial problems between the âCrazy In Loveâ collaborators.
Now â according to the New York Post â the âSingle Ladiesâ singer has been looking at a $21.5 million Chelsea penthouse without her husband, and fans are interpreting this as the latest sign for an imminent divorce.
E! Newsâ Ken Baker dialed in to On Air With Ryan Seacrest early Wednesday morning to address the trending tabloid rumors, claiming, âNo one has that [information].â
âIn fact, Jay Z and Beyonce have been making fun of the rumors of them breaking up, and also, maybe sheâs looking for the two of them,â he explains. âOr she can just be buying an investment property.â
Ryan also weighs in and says, âThe bottom line is that thereâs no story here.â
According to Ken, the âXOâ singerâs solo apartment search would not have sparked a media frenzy and divorce speculations if it werenât for the May elevator incident.
âThe bottom line is, Iâve been doing this for a long time. I stick to what I know,â he concludes. âWhat I do know is that theyâre together, theyâre on tour every night, theyâre making fun of the rumors, and I know that they had a bad incident in that elevator. But beyond that, I donât seen anything else.â
The notorious elevator fight â which was first reported by TMZ â took place at the Standard Hotel following the 2014 Met Gala on May 5. The Carter-Knowles family released a joint statement days later, stating, âAt the end of the day, families have problems and weâre no different. We love each other and above all we are family. Weâve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.â
Do you think Bey is âOn the Runâ from Jay Z, or are people over-analyzing a mere property investment? Sound off in the comments section below.
