Are Beyonce and Jay Z separating? That is the million dollar question. Fans and the media (of course) are dying to know if the reports of an alleged separation between the two, are true.
The recent statement from the New York Post regarding the couple’s future, sent everyone into a frenzy. It reported that they want to split after their “On The Run Tour” ends in September. An alleged inside source stated “They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing, a source told the publication. This is a huge concert tour and they’ve already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front. They have already stopped acting like Mr. and Mrs. There are no rings, if you haven’t noticed. They thought a baby would make things better. They made the classic mistake of thinking a child would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire, and it didn’t. For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family. But after a while, Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey”.
The New York Post noted that while the fault with the marriage rests with Jay Z, he is the one doing all he can to keep the couple together. This is shocking since both of them are known for trying to keep up the “perfect family” image, even after the recent allegations of Jay having an affair with R&B singer, Mya.
Mya denied the accusations via Instagram. She wrote “Never did, never was, never will. I play second to no one, pay my own bills, have my own label, own management company, rely on God only and respect myself & marriage too much for nonsense. False rumors are crafted for ratings & numbers. And miserable, unhappy people need someone to judge to deter the attention away from their own misery and feel better about their miserable lives. If they did it to Jesus, they’ll do it to anyone. God bless”.
Recently, Beyonce took to Instagram to prove that everything is still golden at the Carter household. She posted a photo of herself, Jay Z, and Blue Ivy walking hand in hand during an afternoon stroll. Although this doesn’t necessarily mean they rumors are not true, at least they are getting along well enough to keep the peace for Blue’s sake.
However, it’s going to take more than a few romantic walks to straighten out their marital issues. According to The Mirror news, the couple is seeing a marriage counselor every week to keep the lines of communication open. A source stated “It’s about maintenance rather than trying to fix anything hugely wrong. They are both happy and their daughter, Blue Ivy, remains their absolute priority”.
Neither Bey or Jay have responded to these rumors, but their actions are definitely speaking volumes. During their tour, they have displayed much affection towards each other. Numerous photos have been published, showing the music royalty couple embracing, smiling, holding hands, and sharing kisses on the cheek. But is it all for the show?
Truth is none of us know exactly what’s going on with the Carter’s. Personally, I wish them the best and hope they can work through their issues for their family’s sake (that is, if there are any issues). It’s difficult for normal married couples to address their problems, so I can only imagine the hardships they must be experiencing, having their dirty laundry aired internationally every single day. I guess that’s the price for fame.
