Beyonce is officially planning her divorce announcement from Jay Z after seven years of marriage, according to a bombshell new tabloid expose.
The cause of the billion-dollar breakup, according to this report?
Years of suspected infidelity on his part have allegedly pushed Beyonce to her breaking point, and she's reportedly had it with the whole charade.
“It’s dead,” an insider told In Touch, the beacon of celeb journalism.
“Bey is sick of keeping up the ruse of happiness, and she’s done.”
Of course, we've heard all of this before, and not even that long ago following Solange's elevator fight with Jay Z as Beyonce looked on stoically.
They weathered that, but sources say the "marriage is over" now:
“It’s like she’s on lockdown and doesn’t want to be asked about her marriage or why she and Jay haven’t had another child after Blue Ivy."
“But in private, she’s already told friends and family that she’s moving forward with her life. She’ll soon make a public announcement.”
Rumors have swirled for years that Jay Z has been cheating on Queen Bey with celebrities such as Rihanna, Rachel Roy and Rita Ora.
None of those reports have been confirmed, for what it's worth.
Still, the couple's supposed decision to divorce comes weeks after they had a huge blowup leading up to the MTV VMAs. Why, you ask?
“Earlier this summer, Bey found some suspicious texts on Jay’s phone that led her to believe he was having a secret communication."
A "flirtatious" one, no less, "with one of his [female] proteges ... to Bey, that was a confirmation of her worst suspicions and fears.”
"[She] demanded to see his phone, but he wouldn’t let her. He started screaming back at her, and this went on for 20 minutes."
"Finally, Beyonce pulled it together and warned Jay he was messing with the wrong woman. Then she [packed a bag] and walked out.”
That was enough to ignite the obligatory Beyonce-Jay Z divorce flames, which have been on the verge of flaring up for some time.
Now, the source says, it all comes down to Bey's next move:
“She is fully in charge of how the divorce announcement is going to be made… She is going to play the victim card to the hilt.”
As for their daughter, “Blue Ivy is both a reason to stay married and a reason to divorce, an insider close to the couple said.
“While Blue needs a father figure, [Bey] doesn’t want her to grow up like she did,” referring to her parents’ troubled marriage.
“She absolutely wants full custody," the insider goes on to tell In Touch, although she is fully prepared to offer Jay visitation.”
Well, that's nice at least.
