A "blind item" rumor has gained traction on the Internet today with the claim that Jay Z cheated on his wife Beyonce with singer and former Pussycat Dolls member Nicole Scherzinger.
The unsubstantiated claim originated on the blog Crazy Days and Nights in its "Blind Items Revealed" section.
"Before there was [Scherzinger’s ex] Lewis Hamilton," the post reads. "There was this A+ list rapper/producer/everything else who was engaged at the time but made sure our female celebrity/singer was well taken care of….Nicole Scherzinger/Jay-Z."
This isn’t the first time the "Drunk In Love" couple has been rocked by charges of infidelity.
In August of 2013 a little-known female rapper named LIV claimed that Jay hit on her in a club but she rebuffed his advances.
"Jay hit me on some, ‘I’ll hit you when I’m in town’ while he is married to Beyoncé,’" LIV said in a radio interview. "For me, I’m not that chick."
Jay and Beyonce are currently the hottest couple in the world of hip-hop and R & B. They’re heavily featured on one another’s most recent albums and their daughter Blue Ivy Carter turned 2 in January.
Neither Jay-Z not Beyonce has responded to the rumor yet, and it’s unlikely that either will, given the wild and thus far unsupported nature of the allegation.
