Tamera Mowry felt the swarm of the Beyhive after she told a flirty story about Beyoncé's husband Jay-Z on The Real last week. Now the mother-of-two is trying to diffuse the situation by saying that the "Single Ladies" singer is a "huge fan" of her show. Read on for all the details.
Tamera, 40, shared a story about how she met Jay-Z, 49, before Beyoncé, 37, was in the picture.
“I actually met Jay-Z in person and he wasn’t with Beyoncé at the time and I wasn’t dating anybody," she said. "When I met him, you do get hit by the charm.”
Tamera's Instagram account was instantly filled with endless bee emoji comments from the Beyhive. “Why are you reminiscing on a married man?” one wrote.
Tamera spoke about the Bey-related incident at the 50th Annual NAACP Image Awards on Saturday, March 30. "I was really confused," she told Entertainment Tonight. "I just asked for gum!" Gum was a focal point of the mother-of-two's initial conversation about Jay-Z.
"I'm a huge fan of Beyoncé!" she continued. "Beyoncé is a huge fan of The Real, and yeah, that's all it was. I never meant any harm!"
Tamera's The Real cohost Loni Love poked fun at the situation, saying "Look, Jay-Z is here tonight to get the President's Award. If I see him on the red carpet, I'm going to ask him for some gum!"
