Jay Z And Beyonce Separated For A Year Because Of Rihanna; Reason Behind Controversial Elevator Incident Revealed!

It has been a while since Jay Z and Beyonce are once again rumored to be in the verge of breaking up, but since neither of them confirms nor deny the reports regarding their alleged shaky marriage, an unauthorized biography about the “Drunk In Love” songstress became controversial as it claims to have revealed the real status of the couple. Read on!

Jay Z and Beyonce started dating in 2000, eight years before they decided to get married in 2008, however, according to J Randy Taraborelli, the author of an unauthorized biography entitled: “Becoming Beyonce: The Untold Story,” during the span of their early years as a couple, the pair decided to separate for a year because of the then-rookie singer, Rihanna.

According to Mail Online, the unauthorized book about the 34-year-old songstress’ life claimed that the music industry’s power couple once had a break up for about a year when Jay Z was rumored to be hooking up with RiRi who was only 17-year-old back then.

The rumored affair between the hip hop mogul and the “B*tch Better Have My Money” songstress happened in 2005—five years after Bey and Jay started dating.

Hollywoodlife.com added that since then, the cheating rumors started like a wildfire.

“Beyonce didn’t know what to make of this, and it actually ended up breaking them up for a time. They spent maybe a year apart from each other because Beyonce just wasn’t sure what to make of the situation with Rihanna,” Taraborelli told Entertainment Tonight.

The site went on stating that Bey got over the cheating rumors because she decided to marry Jay Z three years after and have a child with him, Blue Ivy.


The 59-year-old author even added to his statement that RiRi and Bey are now on good terms—“It’s safe to say that Rihanna and Beyonce are friends.”

However, Daily News cited that the love triangle story between the two posptars and Jay Z are nothing but a big fat lie!

Taraborelli wrote that it was made up by RiRi’s PR/publicist, Jonathan Hay to spiced up the singer’s new released song back then, the “Pon de Replay.” “It was all a stunt,” Hay said.

Jay Z, on the other hand, according to Taraborelli, had only one complaint that time, “Dude, she’s a minor!”

Even though Taraborelli said that the whole cheating scandals happened years ago, the latter believes that it was the reason behind the elevator incident between Bey’s younger sister, Solange and Jay Z last year at the Met Gala.

It is reported that Taraborelli claims he spoke to some people close to the songstress and they revealed that the cause of the fight was because Jay Z wanted to attend Rihanna’s after-party, but Bey said “no.”

It was supposed to be a whispered couple’s argument between Jay Z and Beyonce but Solange overheard it which causes a heated fight at the elevator, however, the author admitted that he’s still not sure what caused the fight.

“I think it’s safe to say the only people who know for sure what happened are Bey, Jay, Solange, and the bodyguard who were in the elevator,” Taraborelli said.
