Though sources say hip-hop entrepreneur Jay-Z married his girlfriend of six years, superstar singer Beyoncé Knowles, last Friday at a private ceremony in New York City, they haven’t had much of a honeymoon, bouncing from NYC to North Carolina to Washington, D.C., in just three days. And now OK! can confirm that Jay-Z spent Monday night — the one break in his busy tour schedule — not with his better half, but watching basketball with his guy friends!

An OK! spy spotted Jay-Z hiding in plain sight on Monday at the 40/40 Club, the Manhattan hotspot he owns. Sources inside the club also reveal to OK! that the rapper called ahead to let the club’s security guards know he was coming, and that he "just wanted to watch the NCAA Championship."

"He was sitting on the stairs in plain sight of everyone, just watching the game on the mammoth projection screen," the eyewitness tells OK!. "He was in a great mood, cheering like everyone else." Unfortunately, it was too dark inside the club for the witness to tell whether or not Jay-Z was wearing his wedding band.

And while her man hung out with his friends from tip-off until well past overtime, Beyoncé was nowhere to be seen. Perhaps the former Destiny’s Child frontwoman just needed a day off, as Jay-Z is off to Atlanta for Tuesday night’s stop in his Heart of the City Tour with co-headliner Mary J. Blige.
