Thanks for the Valentine’s Day gift, MediaTakeOut! It pains us to report that the site is pushing rumors that Jay-Z and Beyonce are separating, due to Beyonce’s refusal to put her career on hold for kids—and Jay-Z’s desperation to have them. “For now [Jay] going to be staying in LA. Beyonce will be in NY,” says their source. “The hope is that with the time apart, the couple will decide to either have kids, or go their separate ways.” Maybe this explains why Jay-Z didn’t show up at the Grammys, despite attending RocNation’s pre-Grammy brunch the day before? Gwyneth Paltrow, B’s date at last night’s ceremony, may have been there for moral support.
MTO also says the pair “didn’t even look each other in the eye” at the brunch, and the blog Katiebakes posted an account of Beyonce “looking bored” while Jay-Z texted constantly during a recent dinner at Lucali, their favorite Brooklyn pizza spot. Gossip Cop dismisses the rumor (almost—giving it a “1” instead of the usual “0”), noting the site previously hinted that B was pregnant and that Jay was shtupping Gwyneth. But if children are an issue, these two better get some couples therapy: far, far, far too many of us are invested in their relationship. We’re crossing our fingers for you, Bonnie & Clyde ’03!
