In today’s “Jay Z and Beyoncé were on the verge of divorce” news, Jay Z and Beyonce were on the verge of divorce in 2005…according to a new tell-all booked penned by neither Jay Z or Beyonce.
J. Randy Taraborrelli penned Becoming Beyoncé: The Untold Story that details an alleged breakup between Jay and Beyonce.
An excerpt from the unauthorized biography reads,
“He felt that she was too concerned with [work] and overwhelmed by it…She also had a tendency to become moody and defensive when under great work pressure, and it had begun to drive a wedge between her and Jay,” “The two broke up for a time during that year. She flat-out told him she needed a break.”
After their alleged separation, Jay reportedly moved on to Rihanna. Taraborrelli claims the power couple got into a big blowout at Hov’s 40/40 club.
“All that was heard…was Rihanna’s name uttered several times, before Beyonce stood up and stormed off.”
Jay and Bey looked happy at their inaugural TIDAL X 10/20 concert, so that’s all that matters.
