Beyonce and Jay-Z have been married since 2008 and have been dating for even longer than that but now face divorce rumors. But it’s been six years and their marriage has slowly disintegrated, even as their business and financial successes have rocketed through the roof. All the sources close to Beyonce and Jay-Z state that it’s their commitment to their brand image that has been their downfall, since the couple is so focused on the business aspects of their relationship as opposed to the actual romance. Plus, we’d already heard that Beyonce didn’t even want to marry Jay-Z, and only agreed to do it after realizing the benefits it would have on her career.
Thus, it didn’t come as a surprise to hear that the duo had an open marriage. But what was surprising was the way the rumors and stories came rushing out following Solange‘s attack on Jay-Z after the MET Gala a few months ago. It’s almost as if all these people were just bursting at the seams to discuss the truth about Beyonce and Jay-Z, but were scared to go first. And after the Solange situation went public, the floodgates opened and everything came out – the open marriage, Jay-Z’s affairs, Beyonce’s uncaring attitude towards Jay-Z, everything.
Now, we’ve been hearing that a divorce is imminent, and Beyonce and Jay-Z are just waiting for their tour before they finalize anything. Wouldn’t want to risk millions of dollars, would they? Not to mention the potentially ugly Blue Ivy custody battle. But Beyonce’s already found an apartment to move into, and she and Jay-Z are going to announce their separation the first chance they get. In other words, they’re finally going to stop pretending that everything’s perfect – even if it took them half a decade to do it.
