Beyoncé once again captured the world’s attention with the launch of her Ivy Park activewear line on April 14. But amid the talk surrounding the line’s trendy looks and successful debut on store shelves and online, it was revealed that her business venture may have added to her reported marriage issues with her husband, Jay Z!
Just a few days before the launch of Ivy Park, a source told RadarOnline.com that Jay Z and Beyoncé would be spending some time apart as she prepared for her Formation World Tour amid the line's premiere! “Jay Z recently told his entire staff that he will not be needing them for another month!” the source said. “He said that he has to take care of business and has a lot of traveling to do.”
The insider continued, “As Beyoncé prepares for her upcoming tour, Jay Z said that he is going to use the time to take care of his own business.”
The talk of their plans to focus on their own business ventures followed an earlier report from RadarOnline.com that detailed Jay’s frustrations with his wife putting time into expanding her Parkwood Entertainment management and media company! “Jay Z has been sweating the fact that his wife is trying to start her own empire right now and he is going into overdrive with making sure that it does not trump his own,” the source said.
And a source speaking to OKMagazine.com said that Jay’s business issues had even expanded to his relationship with Bey’s sister, Solange Knowles!
According to the insider, Jay Z was angry with Knowles over her lifestyle site SaintHeron.com because he was working on a similar idea for Bey!
“Jay’s extremely annoyed that no one ran this past him and ripped into Beyoncé for not telling him,” the source said. “The reason he’s so upset is he was drawing up plans of his own to do a similar site for Beyoncé and was asking Gwyneth Paltrow for tips.”
But the source said that Knowles was completely over Jay’s issues with her, and the drama was driving a wedge between them again. “Solange is outraged that he would even think he can tell her what she can and can’t do," the source said.
And despite all the excitement of her Ivy Park launch and Formation World Tour, the source added that “Beyoncé is caught in the middle” of her sister and husband’s drama!
The source added that “Solange has always had issues with Jay" and that Beyoncé "actually loves" her sister's website and "had no idea Jay’s plans were so similar.” What do you think about Beyoncé and Jay Z’s divorce scandal? Tweet us @OKMagazine or let us know in the comments section.
