It seems like every day there’s a new report about the supposed crumbling marriage of power couple Beyoncé and Jay Z. While we’re taking the news with a grain of salt (as should the rest of the world), we can’t help but shudder at the rumored demise of these lovebirds.

So what’s the latest? Shortly following the Page Six article detailing the “real” cause of Solange and Jay Z’s elevator fight (it was apparently all because of Rihanna), another report is claiming that Queen Bey has been secretly shopping for a new apartment in New York City — without Jay Z. The only other occupant would be the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.

According to a source, Beyoncé was checking out a $21.5 million Chelsea penthouse just last month — a few weeks after the elevator brawl video leaked. “She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly,” the insider told the New York Post.

The tip-off also added that Jay is usually involved in the couple's real estate deals, but was notably MIA when Bey went apartment shopping. What’s more, sources add that the rapper would be unwilling to leave their 8,309 square foot Tribeca home for a 4,045 pad in Chelsea. Imagine the horror of...downsizing?! 


“I can say with certainty that Jay is not downsizing,” the source explains. As if to quash the possibility that Bey might have been shopping for mom Tina or Solange, the insider adds that “There’s no way a $20 million apartment is for her mother or her sister. That would be wildly unlikely.”

Or maybe this entire report is “wildly unlikely” given that Bey’s publicist refused to comment and Jay’s rep knew nothing about either of them apartment hunting. So many questions you guys!

Do you think Bey and Jay are calling it quits? Sound off in the comments below!
