By now we’ve all listened to Beyoncé’s "Flawless" remix featuring Nicki Minaj at least a dozen times, and despite Beyoncé reminding us that ‘sometimes sh*t goes down when it’s a billion dollars on a elevator,’ The New York Post reports that more sh*t may be going down between Bey & Jay than what we know.
According to Page Six, The Carters have hired ‘no less than four lawyers’ to attend an emergency meeting on Thursday to figure out how to address their failing marriage.
But while execs at the Thursday session wanted to put out a statement, Jay Z and Beyoncé declined — because they couldn’t agree on what it would say.
Now officials fret that the couple’s $100 million On the Run Tour might be canceled before its scheduled finale.
“This may not make it to San Francisco,” a source said. “I’m definitely not sure that they’ll make it to Paris.”
The tour, which is promoted by Live Nation, was in LA this weekend and was to arrive in San Francisco for two shows beginning Monday. The finale is scheduled for Paris in September.
HBO, meanwhile, plans to telecast a major special on the tour in September.
“There are lawyers that have now joined the tour, and they’re not here just to see them perform. They are here to help hash things out,” the source said.
Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino and HBO chief Richard Plepler wanted the meeting before “this becomes a public-relations nightmare,” the source said, adding that HBO cameras have captured much of the performances and the network plans a major special in September.
“Rapino is pissed that everything is so out in the open and things are so heated,” the source said.
It’s gotten so bad that the couple, who married in 2008, are living separate lives even on the tour.
“They’re not just staying in different hotel rooms, but they have booked separate hotels, and they arrive separately to each show,” the insider said.
On stage and online, however, the stars have been playing the loving couple — with Jay Z snuggling Beyoncé during a show Wednesday night in Seattle.
The source said that one of the problems in the marriage is Jay Z’s controlling nature and that, even now, the rap impresario won’t back off.
“They’ve had discussions lately about the inevitable sit-down interview when they finally do split, and Jay’s been adamant that he doesn’t want Beyoncé sitting down with Barbara Walters or Oprah Winfrey pretending to be the victim,” the source said.
It’s estimated that Jay Z has a net worth of more than $550 million and Beyoncé about $300 million. But the source said it’s unclear who would get what in a divorce.
“From what I know, there’s no prenup.” the source said.
Another day, another Beyoncé and Jay Z rumor. Do you think The Carters are coming to an end?
