Jay Z Neglects Beyonce As Singer Readies 'Formation' Album & Tour: Couple's Divorce Ahead?

Beyonce's marital problems continue to worsen now that Jay Z has reportedly walked out on her, claiming he needs some space to work on his own businesses.

According to Radar Online, the timing for Jay's sudden absence seems odd for several reasons. Beyonce is just weeks away from kicking off her highly-anticipated Formation World Tour, and considering how instrumental Jay has been in helping the singer put the concert together, sources believe the couple is most likely hitting another rough patch in their relationship.

A source revealed to the outlet that the business mogul has already informed his entire staff that they will not be needed for another month, insinuating that he wants his privacy for the time being. "He said that he has to take care of business and has a lot of traveling to do," the insider explains.

"As Beyonce prepares for her upcoming tour, Jay Z said that he is going to use the time to take care of his own business," the source added, giving the idea that the "Hard Knock Life" rapper is distancing himself from Beyonce and her tour despite having helped it become one of the best-selling attractions of the year.

While rumors regarding Beyonce and her relationship are known to come and go, several reports claim that Jay Z has been spending the majority of his time out in New York as Beyonce gears up for the forthcoming tour by rehearsing out in California -- thousands of miles away from her husband.

Furthermore, as Jay Z is reportedly planning to take a backseat in Beyonce's career moves and strategies, it is believed that the rapper had little to no involvement when she signed on to launch her own Ivy Park sportswear collection.

Back in 2011, it was famously revealed that Beyonce's husband had taken over her businesses and music career following her untimely decision to fire her father, Mathew Knowles, who was alleged to have stolen millions in revenue from earnings that were not entitled to the 64-year-old manager.

It is unclear who is running Beyonce's businesses as of right now, but judging by Jay Z's decision in wanting to keep his distance from his wife for the time being, he is beginning to give fans the impression that there seems to be trouble in paradise once again.

Reports of his decision to leave Beyonce in California as he handles his empire in New York comes just months after an unauthorized book claimed the couple famously split for a year over Beyonce's growing concerns that Jay had cheated on her with pop superstar Rihanna.

The couple never commented on those claims, which some fans considered telling enough. While Jay Z may not have cheated on Beyonce, leaving his wife hanging in what will be her most stressful month of the year has left many of Bey's fans puzzled.

Is there another short-term separation brewing? This, of course, wouldn't be the first time that Beyonce and Jay Z have made headlines for their alleged chaotic relationship, with one source having stressed in the past that the duo is only staying together for the sake of their billion-dollar empire.

Beyonce's Formation World Tour is expected to kick off later this month in Miami.
