Jay Z is reportedly ready to go all-out to save his failing marriage with Beyonce Knowles, and is planning a 5-week vacation to persuade her to stay.
The couple has been faced with near-endless rumors in recent weeks, with reports claiming that the rapper’s infidelity has driven Beyonce to the brink of divorce.
But a new report claims that Jay Z is desperate to keep his wife from leaving at the conclusion of their joint summer tour, and is planning a big move.
“Jay wants to save the marriage, they have their final U.S. tour date in San Francisco on August 6 and then they have two dates in Paris from September 12 — that’s it,” a source told the Daily Mail. “He adores his daughter Blue Ivy and he wants a sibling for her, but Beyoncé isn’t sure what she wants to do — their marriage is in flux, that’s the truth. Jay just wants them to spend some time alone together to try and work it out.”
The source added that Jay Z believes there is more at stake than just their marriage.
“And it’s not just throwing away a marriage — it’s throwing away a brand,” the source said. “But it may be that Bey has just had enough. She has some trust issues with Jay.”
There are growing signs that Jay Z and Beyonce are headed toward divorce. While the couple has tried to project an image of normalcy — going out on dates and even appearing with Beyonce’s sister Solange, who fought Jay Z earlier this year after he allegedly flirted with a friend — they have also let their marital problems slip.
Several times this summer Beyonce has altered the lyrics to her song “Resentment,” a change that many people believe is hinting at cheating from Jay Z. The latest tweak came on Wednesday night at a concert in Seattle’s Safeco Field. Beyonce has also been seen several times without her wedding band.
If Jay Z wants to save his failing marriage to Beyonce, he may need to hurry. Their joint summer tour comes to an end in less than six weeks.
