The Jay Z and Beyonce divorce rumors are in full swing, and in an effort to stop the rumor mill the couple is now calling on an unlikely source.
Earlier this week the couple was seen having dinner with Solange Knowles, Beyonce’s sister and the one who sparked the wildfire of rumors by attacking Jay Z after the Met Gala earlier this year. Sources say that Solange was set off by seeing Jay Z flirting with his friend Rachel Roy, and since then there have been numerous more reports of the rapper’s alleged affairs.
But now sources say that Jay Z and Beyonce are looking to Solange to help dispel the divorce rumors. Many believe that the dinner was meant to be a sign from the couple that things are moving along normally, and that the tension reported in celebrity tabloids doesn’t really exist.
“They seemed to be having a nice time and were really relaxed and super low-key,” an eyewitness told People.
The dinner came just a few days after Beyonce posted a picture of her and Jay Z holding hands on her Instagram page., sending a message to fans that there is nothing wrong in their marriage.
But it appears the efforts are doing little to stop the divorce rumors. A report this week claimed that Beyonce has grown tired of her husband’s infidelity, and plans on splitting up at the end of their joint summer “On The Run” tour.
A source told The New York Post’s Page Six: “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.”
The report went on to say that Jay Z and Beyonce tried to patch up their marriage by having another baby, but that plan fell flat.
“For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family,” the source said. “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.”
Despite their dinner with Solange and Beyonce’s Instagram PDA offerings, Jay Z and Beyonce aren’t addressing the divorce rumors directly.
