Jay-Z And Beyoncé Hit Costa Rica For A Romantic Getaway



While many may have wondered where Jay-Z was this weekend during the AMAs as Rihanna won the “Icon Award,” it turns out he was on a romantic getaway with his wife Beyoncé.

A picture was snapped of the two lovebirds dining in Costa Rica on Sunday and it has made its way around the internet. While you can’t see their faces fully, it has been confirmed that Shawn Corey Carter and Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter landed in a private jet at the Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport in the city of Liberia, located in the Costa Rica’s Guanacaste province, at 10:19 Saturday night.

Blue Ivey Carter was not in attendance, leading us to believe that this was a romantic getaway for the couple before they have to go back to their busy tour schedules. Currently Beyoncé is on the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour and Jay is on his Magna Carta Tour.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
