Separate hotels for Jay Z and Beyonce

New York, Aug 4: Pop star Beyonce Knowles and her rapper husband Jay Z are reported to be staying in separate hotels as they struggle to keep their marriage going through their lucrative tour.

Lawyers are understood to have joined the couple on their sell-out On the Run Tour, which is due to bring them a paycheck of around $100 million (74 million), amid fears that it may have to be cancelled because husband and wife are at loggerheads.

Rumours have circulated about the troubled state of their six-year marriage since an episode earlier this year in which Beyonces’ sister, Solange, was captured on CCTV attacking Jay Z, 44, whose real is name Shawn Carter, inside a hotel elevator.

At the end of last week, the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, are said to have met their respective lawyers — two apiece — to thrash out a statement addressing the whispers, but could not agree what it would say.

The show is moving on from Los Angeles to San Francisco. A source told the New York Post that both now feared they would break up before the tour’s finale in Paris next month

The source said: “This may not make it to San Francisco. I’m definitely not sure that they’ll make it to Paris.

“There are lawyers that have now joined the tour, and they’re not here just to see them perform.

“They are here to help hash things out.

“They’re not just staying in different hotel rooms, but they have booked separate hotels, and they arrive separately to each show.”
