The source says the elevator fight after the Met Ball was really over Jay’s protégé Rihanna, whom he allegedly planned to meet later that night at his 40/40 club.
This is the first peek behind the firewall that is Beyoncé and Jay Z Inc.
— what drew them together, why they’re headed for a split and why love was never the thing that held them together.
And while they’ve been pushing back, kissing on stage and playing happy family on Instagram, the source says Jay and Bey are permanently broken, and that both are at fault.
“Knowing them as I do, obviously there’s a little something to certain rumors,” the source says.
After breaking with Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé’s next project was a duet with Jay on his “’03 Bonnie and Clyde,” and in the video, they played a hip-hop version of the outlaw couple. She had to learn the ropes as presented by Jay — but really, this was mostly about business.” As for dating others, he says, “they each had guilty pleasures.” The source believes that, along the way, she did really fall for Jay Z, and her parents, who had groomed Beyoncé to be a star from a very young age, were fine with it — for a time.
