Beyoncé and Jay Z are putting the divorce rumors solidly in the rear view, renewing their wedding vows during a vacation to Italy and facing growing rumors about another pregnancy.
The couple had been inundated with rumors of a split ever since footage leaked of a fight between Beyoncé ‘s sister Solange Knowles and Jay Z after the Met Gala earlier this year. Reports indicated that Solange was angry with Jay Z about his alleged cheating, and the incident kicked off a stream of rumors about Jay Z’s rumored affairs.
A number of outlets even reported that the divorce had become a sure thing, with Beyoncé already talking to lawyers and setting the process in motion, with an official announcement coming in weeks.
But now it appears that Beyoncé and Jay Z have changed course, starting with a romantic getaway to Corsica that coincided both with Beyoncé’s birthday and the tail end of the couple’s joint On the Run summer tour. This week the couple took their relationship even further, renewing their vows in a small ceremony before friends and family.
“They were joined on a private beach by Beyoncé’s mum Tina, their daughter Blue Ivy and a small group of close friends and recited a new set of vows during a short but very romantic ceremony, which doubled up as a birthday celebration,” a source told the magazine Grazia.
The couple had also been surrounded by rumors that they are pregnant with baby No. 2, including what some took as an admission from Jay Z when he changed the lyrics of a song to say “pregnant with another one.”
The Beyoncé pregnant rumors are in question, however. The couple was recently photographed holding what appeared to be champagne glasses. Though there was no confirmation that the glasses actually contained alcohol, insiders believe it may have been a plan from Beyoncé and Jay Z to set the rumors straight.
“While this isn’t a direct denial of what Hov might have implied on stage, he and Beyoncé have a history of setting the record straight through telling photos rather than carefully constructed public statements,” an insider told E! News.
While Beyoncé and Jay Z may not be pregnant, it appears they are not headed for a divorce either.
