Jay Z and Beyonce Knowles may be embroiled in divorce rumors, but that didn’t stop the couple from going on a date night at one of Chicago’s hottest restaurants.
Witnesses spotted the couple at Chicago Cut Steakhouse on Wednesday evening with their daughter Blue Ivy in tow. Managing partner David Flom said they ordered tuna tartare and sliders as a starter, then Jay Z had a steak while Beyonce Knowles opted for salmon.
As Flom noted, there was no inkling of trouble between the couple. He said Jay Z was particularly talkative, inquiring about the restaurant’s history and then asking to see the chef.
“They couldn’t have been nicer,” Flom said.
This is the second public date in the last few days for Jay Z and Beyonce Knowles, who seem to be trying to curb divorce rumors. Earlier this week, they were seen sharing dinner with Solange Knowles, Beyonce’s sister and the starting point for many of the divorce rumors. Solange attacked Jay Z after the Met Gala earlier this year, reportedly because the rapper was getting a little too flirty with his friend, designer Rachel Roy.
From there, many other rumors emerged of Jay Z’s infidelity, including reports of affairs with Rihanna, Rita Ora and Mya.
Witnesses who saw Jay Z at dinner with his wife and sister-in-law indicated that the family problems are all in the past.
“They seemed to be having a nice time and were really relaxed and super low-key,” an eyewitness told People.
Beyonce Knowles has tried to quell the rumors as well, recently posting a picture on her Instagram page showing her holding hands with Jay Z.
But the efforts are not doing much to slow the divorce rumors. Sources claim that Jay Z and Beyonce Knowles are planning to break up after the conclusion of their joint summer tour.
