A handful of damaging rumors have dogged Beyonce over the past several days.
There was chatter that she thinks she's too fat to leave the house, for example.
And there was talk that she and Jay Z are secretly paying money to a shadow organization that assures Beyonce only receives positive press.
But while both of those reports are likely untrue, the following news item has been verified by a very reliable source:
Beyonce and Jay Z have now been married for nine years!
That's nearly a full decade!
Neither the singer nor the rapper has acknowledged today's anniversary online, but Beyonce's mother, Tina Knowles, couldn't help but honor the couple via a very sweet post on Instagram.
"9 years already??? Congratulations to the Carters on their Anniversary," Knowles wrote as a caption to the following photo.
"That's my arm fixing the dress lol," she added, referring to her tugging on the train of her daughter's wedding dress in the throwback snapshot.
Pretty cool, huh?
It's not often we see such cute, personal photos of Beyonce and Jay Z, who comprise both one of the world's most famous couples and one of the world's most private at the same time.
Beyonce and Jay Z were married on April 4, 2008 in a private, intimate ceremony.
As you can see, the gorgeous singer donned a strapless white gown with a ruffled train, which was designed by her mom, for the occasion.
And while Beyonce looks amazing, Knowles revealed that Queen Bey wasn't exactly thrilled with the end result.
"She was so sweet to let me do that," Knowles said on the Today Show in June 2016, adding:
"She came back later one day and she said, ‘You know, when my daughter gets married, I’m going to let her pick out her own dress.'
"Maybe she wasn’t so excited about it at the time, but she’s a sweetheart."
Beyonce and Jay Z are now the parents of daughter five-year old daughter Blue Ivy and they have two more kids on the way.
Yes, TWO more: The singer announced in February that she is pregnant with twins.
Last year, of course, the stars battled rumors of infidelity on Jay Z's part; rumors that Beyonce herself basically fueled via her album "Lemonade," in which she sang about her husband's alleged mistress.
She referred to this woman as Becky with the Good Hair.
Despite the apparent scandal, however, Beyonce and Jay Z never separated. They never even stopped appearing in public together, lauging it up at Los Angeles Lakers games soon after the album was released.
These two are masters are keeping the public guessing abut their love life.
But whatever they are doing behind the scenes, it appears to be working.
About fifty percent of all married couples in America get divorced, remember.
So the mere fact that Beyonce and Jay Z have lasted for nine years must say something positive about husband and wife.
Do they have another nine years in them? For the sake of their current child and the pair on the way... let's hope so!
Please join us in wishing a very happy anniversary to Beyonce and Jay Z!
