Remember when we all thought that Beyonce and Jay-Z had a rock solid marriage? I mean, considering the fact that they are a high profile couple this relationship seemed about as air tight as a celeb romance can gate. In two short months the myth has been shattered (thanks Solange) and they have totally hit bottom as their fans have looked on in disbelief – rumors of divorce are rampant. First it seemed like the main problem was Rachel Roy, then an insult from Naomi Campbell both in the context of the Solange Knowles elevator attack but then we quickly learned of lots of little incidents within the past few years that put together a puzzle that resembled Beyonce in an unhappy marriage with lots of cheating, or an open marriage with Jay-Z doing all the sleeping around. Which is worse? In either case divorce is the best choice for this showmance business couple.
It seems that Jay-Z certainly carries the bulk of the blame and by now I think most of us are wondering if he has hooked up with every protege he has had in the last few years. He is also the only one actively trying to repair things and by that I don’t necessarily mean save the marriage.
Page Six is saying that the couple has marriage counselors with them as they cross cross the country for their On the Run Tour- not to fix them but perhaps to help them to split as gracefully as possible. They have been paid up front for this tour so they have to pull it off without too much public drama – though Beyonce is still taking shots at Jay-Z as she performs Resentment, a song about cheating. According to the source that is close to the couple, this marriage is pretty much DOA.
“There are no rings, if you haven’t noticed. For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family. 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.”
They certainly aren’t the first couple to make the mistake of thinking that a baby would breathe new life into a stale relationship. Unfortunately it rarely happens. Jay-Z wrap up their tour, do you think that they will make a confirmation announcement? Or will they just quietly lead very separate lives in an open marriage like they’ve been doing?
