Even Beyonce and Jay Z go through rough patches in their relationship. An author who is writing an unauthorized biography about Bey’s life is claiming that she and her husband separated for a year when there were rumors that Jay cheated on her with Rihanna!
Beyonce, 34, and Jay Z, 45, have been through their fair share of break up and separation rumors, but this one is scandalous! In an authorized biography about the 34-year-old’s life, the author, J Randy Taraborrelli, 59, wrote that the powerful music couple reportedly went their separate ways for about a year when it was rumored that Rihanna, 27, and Jay Z were hooking up. Read on for more details on their supposed split!
The break up reportedly happened when Rihanna released “Pon De Replay” in 2005, roughly a year after Jay first received a demo of that track. It was then that the cheating rumors started. “Beyonce didn’t know what to make of this, and it actually ended up breaking them up for a time,” J Randy told Entertainment Tonight of the alleged split on Oct. 22. “They spent maybe a year apart from each other because Beyonce just wasn’t sure what to make of the situation with Rihanna.” But, the 34-year-old got over the rumored infidelity because she went on to marry the music mogul in 2008 and have a child with him.
The 59-year-old writer even added that the two popstars are on good terms. “It’s safe to say that Rihanna and Beyonce are friends,” J Randy said. Apparently the rumors of Jay and Rihanna’s affair was reportedly made and spread to the media by publicists to boot the 27-year-old singer’s profile. Even though this whole incident happened years ago, the author believes that Rihanna’s presence is the source of some of the couple’s fights. That includes the brawl between Jay and Beyonce’s younger sister, Solange, 29, at the Met Gala in 2014.
J Randy claims he spoke to some people close to the “XO” singer and revealed the brawl happened because Jay wanted to go to Rihanna’s Met Gala after party but she refused to. “It was a whispered married couple’s argument that would have gone by completely unnoticed had Solange not overheard it,” he said. “Solange has always been Beyoncé’s biggest protector.” But, even the award winning author claims he’s not sure that’s what caused the fight. “I think it’s safe to say the only people who know for sure what happened are Bey, Jay, Solange, and the bodyguard who were in the elevator,” J Randy said. Well, what can we say? Sometimes crazy things happen when there’s a billion dollars in an elevator.
