According to the Daily Star, Jay-Z recently got a hefty tax rebate, and the 43-year-old entertainment tycoon promptly used it to send $45,000 checks to everyone from executives to housekeepers toiling away at the three homes he shares with Beyonce, 31, and their 18-month-old daughter, Blue.
“Nobody got left out,” a source told the publication. “A lot of them couldn’t believe it and phoned his personal assistant to check that there hadn’t been some mistake.”
It wasn’t! “He’s spreading the wealth around and everyone is blown away,” says an insider.
Though the superstar couple’s gift seems like a lot, it’s a drop in the bucket. Jay-Z and Beyonce reportedly have become pop’s first couple to be worth $1 billion!
