We’ve been hearing about marital troubles amidst hip hop’s first couple for months now, with the most recent reports indicating that Beyonce and Jay Z have entered marriage counseling in order to try and fix their damaged relationship.
While that may have seemed like an encouraging sign, a recent report published by Page Six claims that Bey and Jay have already decided to go their separate ways, and are simply waiting for the conclusion of their highly publicized (and highly profitable) On the Run tour before announcing their plans to divorce.
“There are no rings, if you haven’t noticed,” says a source close to the couple. “[Right now] they are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing…This is a huge concert tour and they’ve already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front.”
The insider also claims that the Carters are only maintaining the illusion that they’re together because they feel they’re more profitable as a pair. Despite that, he says they’ll announce they’ll officially split after the tour wraps up in September.
Things seem to have been going downhill for Jay and Bey ever since footage of the now-infamous Solange-Jay Z fight surfaced back in May.
Rumors that Jay cheated with Casey Cohen surfaced shortly thereafter, and allegations of infidelity by both parties have been circulating ever since.
The source says the iconic power couple have had trouble from the start of their marriage and had initially hoped the birth of Blue Ivy would help them stay together:
“For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family. They made the classic mistake of thinking a baby would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire and it didn’t.”
