Beyonce Secretly Searches For New York Apartment … Without Jay Z!
Rumors that Beyonce and Jay Z’s marriage is on the rocks have been prevalent ever since May’s Met Gala elevator incident, and now, new reports are suggesting the Beyonce is moving out.
A source tells The Post that the Queen Bey has secretly been looking for a pad without her husband. Per the insider, the singer checked out a $21.5 million, 4,045-square-foot penthouse in Chelsea early last month. “She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly,” the source said.
According to reports, Jay Z is usually involved when it comes to buying property, but the source says that this time, the rapper has not been seen.
The couple, who is in the middle of their On The Run Tour, currently lives in a massive 8,309-square-foot crib in Tribeca. The source says that the duo’s home is twice the size of the West 19th Street digs Bey was looking at. “I can say with certainty that Jay is not downsizing,” the insider revealed. “There’s no way a $20 million apartment is for her mother or her sister. That would be wildly unlikely.”
Following May 5th’s Met Gala, Beyonce’s younger sister, Solange got into a fight with Jay Z and attacked him in an elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York. The entire incident was caught on camera and went viral several days later. The family never disclosed what the fight was about, but did release a statement following all the speculation.
“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family. The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”
The altercation seems to be what initially started the ongoing divorce rumors, but the couple in their own ways, have also silenced the gossip. Last week, the rapper posted a picture on Facebook that reads, “Die in love and live forever.” As for Beyonce, she continues to use social media to confirm that their love is everlasting.
