Beyoncé and Jay Z appear to be all smiles when it comes to their On the Run tour, which still has 10 performances left, leading into mid-September.
But behind closed doors, according to a number of sources, things are quite different for the couple, who have been swamped by divorce rumors recently. The allegations include the fact that the couple have embarked on an emergency therapy program while on tour to save their marriage.
The New York Post reported yesterday that while Jay Z seems to be the one to blame for the marriage breakdown, due to numerous allegations of cheating, he is also doing all he can to save the relationship with Beyoncé, and has hired marriage counselors, who are now traveling with them on tour, in a bid to save the relationship.
An inside source spoke to the Post about the situation between the couple:
They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing. . . This is a huge concert tour and they’ve already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front. There are no rings, if you haven’t noticed. 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. They made the classic mistake of thinking a child would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire, and it didn’t.
Another report from In Touch magazine quoted another source as saying that Beyoncé has simply had enough of Jay Z’s womanizing ways and wants out:
She’s heard all the rumors about Jay fooling around, and she can’t take it anymore. The romance is over. He was toasting champagne with the crew and friends and some women who were brought back stage. Beyonce seethed when she saw a busty blonde nuzzling into Jay’s chest and him whispering something into her ear. She and Jay have always had huge blow-ups where he leaves furious. They fight about everything, but cheating and jealousy have always ben the big issues. Their relationship is volatile.
There’s no question that the dynamic between Beyoncé and Jay Z is volatile, but how have the couple managed to keep such a brave face on during their tour if things between them are really that bad?
The answer to that question remains to be seen, what’s for sure is that when it comes to situations like this there’s generally no smoke without fire, and as Jay Z’s reputation precedes him it is possible that divorce could be the only option.
