The latest news on Beyonce and Jay Z's "divorce" has gone to another level, and should rumors about the couple pan out, Bey has tapped her BFF, Gwyneth Paltrow, for advice on her imminent split from Jay.
Although blood is thicker than water, friendships run long and deep. That's why it's not surprising that Blue Ivy's mom would look outside her family to seek advice on all matters pertaining to divorce in her rumored amicable split.
A source told Us Weekly that Beyonce is taking things up a notch by seeking counsel from her close pal on how to manage life before, during and after divorce proceedings with Jay Z. It's no secret that the Goop founder/curator and her ex, Cold Play's Chris Martin, had a so-called "conscious uncoupling" when they split back in March.
"The day after the announcement, Bey and Jay will be spotted together. The two will be all lovey-dovey," said the insider close to the details with Jay Z and Beyonce's split plans.Paltrow and Martin announced the separation from her husband of 10 years, citing, "insufferable similarities." They share two children together and were known to hobnob with Mr. and Mrs. Carter when things were pleasant during the couple's happy days. One can only imagine that when someone encounters a crisis like divorce, a confidant is the first weapon of choice in coping with the stress of crumbling marital vows.
Just last month, Queen Bey, who describes Paltrow as "incredible" and a "great friend on every level," was spied visit her pal's home in Brentwood. Paltrow didn't appear to be damaged goods after the shocking news. In fact, she and Chris were seen out and about together the next day. But it makes logical sense because they vowed to keep things civil for the sake of their two children.
Playing Devils advocate for a moment, if a Beyonce and Jay Z divorce is planned, recent photos of Bey's Instagram account show that she's already emulating her friend's approach to parting ways.
The Carters were said to have hit a rough patch in their marriage even before the arrival of Blue Ivy. During the pregnancy, it was believed that they would find common ground and even find love again while they headlined On The Run. For example, Jay hired marriage counselors while they toured to help salvage his vows to Beyonce; all to no avail. As a consequence, the couple plans to end their marriage in the fall, according to the insider.
Should Beyonce and Jay Z divorce, will Bey follow in her pal's footsteps and get her groove back on the fly? Five months after Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband separated, she began dating Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk.
