We've all been holding our collective breath that Beyonce and Jay-Z would find a way to work out their supposed marital issues. But are their issues in fact just for show? 

Publicist Jonathan Hay, who says he knows Jay-Z, tell The Sun that he thinks the rumors of the couple having trouble were just manufactured to increase tickets sales for the couple's joint concert tour, On the Run. The tour continues until next month.



"They are driving interest for the tour," Jonathan said. "If you look at the timing of these stories, I don’t think this is a coincidence."

Jonathan points out that lots of seats were still unsold for the tour as of June. "So then we had the elevator fight and since then the tour has been written about every single night and ticket sales have increased," he said about Solange Knowles attacking Jay-Z. "Once the tour is over, they will put a stop to these stories and show everything is fine at home."

Hmm. So could there be any truth to Jonathan's wacky theory? We're not so sure, since that would be a very complicated ruse. But it is nice to think that Bey and Jay are actually still as happy as ever. Here's hoping.

Do you think the rumors have been concocted?
