Beyonce and Jay Z are being plagued by divorce rumors after reports emerged that the rapper has had affairs with Rita Ora and Rihanna.
The couple has already been under tight scrutiny since the incident last month in which Beyonce’s sister Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z in an elevator following a Met Gala after-party. Since then the divorce rumors have intensified for Beyonce and Jay Z, with new reports blaming Jay Z’s infidelity for the situation.
Though the divorce rumors have never had solid details attached, they gained enough steam in the past few months that Rita Ora responded during a visit to 105.1’s The Breakfast Club.
“Don’t you dare disrespect Beyoncé like that ever again in your entire life,” Ora said in the April interview. “You should know better than that. That’s just straight-up disrespect. You can’t even go there.”
But the denial has done little to slow the divorce rumors, and Life & Style now reports that Beyonce is fed up with the lies. The report noted that Beyonce had let Jay Z slide out of trouble many times before, but got tired of his string of lies.
Sources said it was Beyonce’s anger that caused the couple to skip the Florence wedding of pal Kanye West and now-wife Kim Kardashian. It was reported that Beyonce wanted to avoid Rachel Roy, who reportedly kicked off the elevator fight after flirting with Jay Z.
But Beyonce is not the only one with doubts. There are also reports that Jay Z is angry at how close the singer has grown to her bodyguard, Julius De Boer.
“Jay definitely thinks that there was and may still be something romantic going on between Bey and Julius,” a source told MTV. “He wanted to fire Julius last February, but Beyonce said, ‘Julius isn’t going anywhere.’ ”
“They’ve spent a lot of time together behind closed doors. He’s even stayed in her hotel room,” a source added.
If Beyonce and Jay Z are headed for divorce, neither of them is letting on. The couple hasn’t spoken publicly about the reported trouble or Jay Z’s cheating, and actually just took a weekend to vacation together in the Hamptons.
