L&S: Beyonce ‘devastated’ to learn that Jay-Z slept with Rihanna, Rita Ora & more


Beyonce’s alleged marriage problems cover the new issue of Life & Style this week. I guess we could take this story as an addendum to last week’s Star Mag story about Beyonce maybe/probably banging her trusted bodyguard Julian de Boer, because L&S does reference those rumors. The crux of L&S’s story is that Jay-Z is banging lots of different ladies, but Jay still gets jealous of Bey’s relationship with Julius. It’s a mess! Some highlights:

*Their marriage is “in peril” because Jay-Z is a compulsive cheater. Allegedly, he’s slept with Rihanna, Rita Ora, Rachel Roy, the former Miss Belgium, etc.

*Beyonce has been “destroyed” by revelations about Jay’s wandering dong. She “finally learned the truth after being left alone night after night.”

*He also asks ladies for their numbers on a regular basis.

*Beyonce’s new album is all about her sex life with Jay because she’s desperate to keep him sexually satisfied.

*Jay thinks Beyonce has been banging Julius De Boer. Jay is reportedly “very jealous.”

[From Jezebel & Showbiz Spy]

Sure, I’ll buy that Jay has fooled around with Rachel Roy. I’ll even believe he’s had a thing (in the past?) with Rihanna. But Rita Ora? Rita is like the budget Rihanna. I’m not sure if I believe that. I will say this though – it’s very interesting to see all of these old rumors swirling anew following The Elevator Beatdown. I wonder when In Touch Weekly or Star Mag will bring up that old story about Jay fathering multiple children in various countries. There are stories that he has a son in France and a son in… what? The Dominican Republic, I think. As for Beyonce’s alleged surprise about these revelations… I think she already knew? I think Beyonce has known about Jay’s extracurricular activities for years.

    This! Can Rita Ora please go away.

  3. Ellen says:

    L&S = Fan Fiction.

    They have no sources. Is it possible? Sure. Do they have the faintest idea? No way.

  4. Dragonlady sakura says:

    Where there is smoke..,I’ve always felt Jay Z was a cheater and Beyonce tolerated it. You can only hide your dirt for so long before it starts to resurface, hince these new tabloid stories.

  5. Jacqueline says:

    I would believe she was devastated, if it wasn’t for the fact that I believe this is a business union before an actual marriage. But, I think that they had an agreement to be private. At some point, Bey will wrap all of this around his neck – because he was exposed and made her look like a fool.

    • Nerd Alert says:

      I agree. Right now she’s in PR Denial Land. When it gets to the point it can’t possibly be denied, she’ll try to ruin him over this.

    • Kate says:

      Yeah, I’d believe she’s devastated that he’s so indiscreet and that her facade is being torn down, but not that she actually cares who he’s hooking up with and certainly not that she’s only just realized he’s not faithful.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Jacqueline – exactly! It’s all business. The stupid photo op with Beyonce dropping her ring at the Met Gala so Jay-Z could pick it up and act chivalrous was so fake I’m surprised people didn’t laugh in their faces. They BOTH try to control what people see and think, right down to Beyonce faking a pregnancy. All that lying can’t last forever, especially if they let real feelings interfere with their business deal.

      • I Choose Me says:

        I go back and forth on whether I think her pregnancy was faked or not but yeah, the Met Gala ring drop was a classic HAPPY COUPLE STUNT, and all part of the brand that is Bey and Jay Z.

        Still, it’s their business though. I can’t muster up any outrage about celebs cheating at this point.

      • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

        Exactly, you just can’t fake authentic love if it’s only a business deal from the start.
        Their divorce may be the only real thing they share together. Hah, hah, can’t stand either of them or their overrated generic music.

    • Artemis says:

      I don’t believe this. I think it’s business as much as love for the simple reason that no man would ever bother that much to date a woman who cares more about career than her man. I think she found a good balance after 2006 but definitely in the beginning of her solo career, there wasn’t much room for J and he has rapped about this. Most famous rappers would not put up with a woman like that.

      Beyoncé on her part is scared of divorcing because her parents didn’t have a great marriage and from her quotes and songs, you can tell she’s quite romantic and idealistic, she’ll never leave J. Plus a perfectionist. It’s not going to happen.

      Furthermore, if it was business, then why were they so OTT private for years? Business means you make money from something; they never sold their wedding, ring pics or baby pics unlike some people fawn over on this site but they would never call those people out. They didn’t even want to talk about each other. Even now that Beyoncé is more exposed they still put it out for free on her social media platform.

      And she was smart enough to wait with babies until she was in a great place in her career. I remember CBs saying the year before she got pregnant that she didn’t want to have children because she’s vain, scared to have an ugly child, a workaholic etc etc….now that she has a baby with J, their relationship is business all of a sudden. People always look for reasons to devalue their relationship when they’ve been together for 12+ years and highly successful in their own right. They don’t need each other to make money so I don’t understand the ‘business’ comments tbh.

      • I Choose Me says:

        They are celebrities, very high-profile ones, if not quite on the level of Brad and Angelina. Therefore, like all high-profile celebrities they are very much invested in the ‘business’ of being celebrities. All of them craft an image for the masses. Or at least try to.

      • Artpopgoddess says:

        Are you serious. Jay Z worships money. It’s all he raps about. There is definitely business involved by himself he’s worth 5 close to 100 million with Beyonce he’s worth close to a Billion. That floats his boat. He is a relevant black male who is TOT opulent and worth about 100 million more than Beyonce she is richer than most men women dont really desire that. Anywho believe what you want but beautiful successful women get cheated on everyday some men just desire variety especially rich ones. I doubt Beyonce is exempt from dissapointments or heartache because it’s part of life. Besides maybe this will increase the depth of her music. Heartache can do that ya’ know. Or it could be just a rumor. Guess we have to wait 20 yrs for her to write a book.

      • Val says:

        I always enjoy your posts Artemis, they’re always on point and eloquent. However, as much as I agree with you, I do think that now that they’ve gone completely public with their marriage, it has become a business. Whether they love each other or not, their image sells. It sells ALOT.

      • Artemis says:

        @ I Choose Me:

        Of course. I don’t disagree with that. Every celeb has a brand and I know B and J have theirs. They are the Brangelina of music and more successful (money wise) tbh due to their other business ventures. But to use Brangelina for a moment: as soon as they were public (Jolie pregnancy) they did organise shoots and provided quotes about each other and their life together if they had a movie to sell. They sold baby pics (for whatever reason, they did it.). They are more business in selling their personal life and promoting their brand as opposed to B and J who outright said they want to keep that part private and this was after years of dating already. B didn’t even show her ring until what, 6 months after the wedding? People complain about BIC’s face not being shown when there are enough pap pictures that they can’t control. They are still quite private meanwhile Brangelina has their kids featured on how many magazines? Or all those other celebs who are desperate to stay relevant (Alba).

        They don’t really sell their personal life as much as people try to claim. They sell their music and other ventures but until I see a cover of them posing with BIC as a happy family and talking about their family on the cover of People, I will not believe this ‘business’ talk completely, it’s 50/50 to me if it simply does not extend to actually SELLING their life constantly to the tabs and getting money out of it.


        Yes I know all of that. Please tell me how they SELL their PERSONAL life and getting money for it though. I’ll be waiting.

        Plus if they split, they will still be rich and they will each have their own business to take care of. They don’t need each other for money, they make it with or without each other. B was making paper with DC and J is, well…J!


        Thanks :)

      • Dame Snarkweek says:

        I also fail to see how the Bey and Jay combo = business deal. Bey’s image was all about being a strong, independent female powerhouse who keeps the men on their toes while also being flirty and free. Jay’s image was all about being an alpha male only concerned with money, clothes, cars and the type of girls who knew better than to expect a ring. Getting married, technically, should have destroyed their brands not secured them.
        Maybe the real miracle is that they managed to stay relevant despite tying the knot. I think they were more surprised and thrilled by this than anybody and therefore grew increasingly bold. Now they will have to walk it back a little. If it ever came down to divorce Jay will be the big loser. He will lose respectability and will have to actually pay someone to dress him, lol.

  6. Loopy says:

    She has been looking down cast lately, i think more so because she is such a control freak when it comes to her image, and now that the whole world so what went down she can’t pretend its all rosy anymore. Oh and Jay , yeah what man especially one worth gazzillions is going to remain faithful for 12 years?

  7. aims says:

    It’s like Pandora’s box opened up after the fight in the elevator.

    • T.C. says:

      All rumours true or not are going to be floating in the tabs post elevator assault. Beyoncé should have taken a stance to protect Jay Z for the cameras if she didn’t want her public facade breaking.

      • Meemee says:

        She didn’t know the video was going to be leaked.

      • jwoolman says:

        I saw that video. B would have been beyond stupid to try to get between her snapped sister’s rage and J. She could have been hurt herself. She did the right thing – she let the professional bodyguard handle it. Which he did. Nothing that B could have said would have shoved the rage back in the bottle, it was coming from a dark place inside Solange. Saying anything to people in that state just makes it worse. You can’t deal rationally with irrationality. Experience talking here.

  8. Talie says:

    Before that elevator incident, no tabloid would touch stories about them… after, interesting to see the tide turn. The Beygency can’t be happy.

    • Artemis says:

      Uhm, fake pregnancy anyone? The inauguration ball? There have been split rumours before Elevator gate though. About them as a couple wasn’t written much purely because they were extremely private. They rarely confirm(ed) or deny any rumours and when they were asked questions about each other, they would not say anything, crack jokes or give subtle hints that the question is out of boundaries.

  9. murphy says:

    Of course she knew! She knew when she signed the contract to marry him! I hate how they keep trying to force down our throats that this is a real marriage. Maybe they really did have a romance at some point, maybe they still do. But this marriage is BUSINESS.

  10. Jojoann says:

    He signed Rita so its possible he hit it before he offered the contract. Remember that clip from some awards (grammys?) years ago when Rihanna and his collabo won? Riri doesnt know her place as a mere Jumpoff, so she tries to walk up to the stage while holding hands with a man whos wife is in the audience. Jay swiftly knocks her hand aside and walks afew paces back. And later there are snaps from that evening with them leaving the event and Jay clearly is telling her off because the look on her face is like death. Wish I wasnt on my phone or I would post links. Yeah, I believe the Rihanna story. Both Jay and Riri are hoes anyhow.

    • Artemis says:

      LMAO, this fiction. The video is up for everybody to see so it better be true and in this case: it isn’t. Rihanna gives him a friggin’ bearhug in front of his wife and they’re happy they’ve won. She grabbed his WRIST and half-drags him on the stage and then they let go as she goes up to the stage first as he makes a gesture that she should go first. Ain’t nothing shady about it and he jokes with her on stage too so yeah…

      • Val says:

        I always thought that Jay had a very big brother/mentor type of relationship with Rihanna, mainly cos Rih was what, 16? 17? when he signed her.

      • Artemis says:

        Me too.

        Rihanna, as much as I despise her mean girl personality IS a bad bish. As if she would sleep with J when she was clearly madly in love with CB and when she likes her men pretty like bye with this fiction :) . She can’t even appreciate the man that helped with her career without people claiming she must’ve slept with him.

      • Leona says:

        Lawd! Yeah I just watched the video. Heres a link for the lazy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_x2xp1SXno

        This will upset the stans but I think Jojo is right. At 1:14, theres definitely something not quite kosher going on. He is shoving her ahead a little more forcefully than would be necessary if he was just being modest and allowing her the spotlight. Besides, isnt the done thing to help the female up the steps at these awards? I would expect him to hold her hand as she walks up the stairs, this seems like some other drama. Also she looks a little more upset than she really ought to be.

        Now where can I find the other pics Jojo references?

      • J.Mo says:

        I agree with Artemis. I just don’t see anything in that video except JayZ being all cool and standing back to give her the spotlight.

      • Jayna says:

        You can’t be serious? I just watched the video posted. The way you and Leona interpret the video is beyond a stretch and I don’t read that video that way at all. It’s obvious he was happy for her and then let her walk up the steps. This was her moment, and he teased her a little on stage. And I saw no issues when they were leaving. And she never looks upset. LOL Talk about reading something into nothing.

  11. paola says:

    It’s so predictable.. every time some celebrity gushes about their sex lives it’s time for divorce papers.

    • Hmmm says:

      The harder they try, the less believable they are. Tom Cruise couch jumping BS LALA land.
      Goop and Chris Martin were never photographed together as much as they were 6 months before their separation announcement. I bet most HW relationships are fame and money driven.

      • paola says:

        You’re forgetting Heidi Klum and Seal. They couldn’t shut up about their sex life and they divorced 5 minutes later.
        Robin Thicke and Paula Patton? Gawd they were annoying in trying to convince us on how good they were together.

    • Lauren says:

      Indeed. It’s hilarious when couples post pics on FB daily. Making out, sexytimes, dancing, vacations, grocery shopping, and even having a dump! Nothing is sacred. Then they break up, stating they realized they are better as friends! So pathetic and fake. I posted a pic of my fiancee with our dog, and horny women kept commenting about his muscular arms! Zero comments about our fluffy Pom. Never again.

  12. maria says:

    Jay has f*cked Rihanna and Bey knows about and is cool with it. I think they both do other people.

  13. MsMercury says:

    The black blogs have been reporting on Jay’s cheating for years. And yes, I believe the Rita Ora reports too. There have even been rumors of both B & J hooking up with her (allegedly) and at the very least they are friendly. Also J supposedly has a few other kids out there.

  14. Jenny says:

    When they give proof I will believe it, rihanna people admitted they would put out rihanna/jay rumours to increase rihanna’s star power..

  15. pnichols says:

    Am I the only one who read this and thought…….who cares.

  16. Bedge says:

    And on another note, I had a dream I was hanging with Beyonce and bought Blue Ivy a ‘Bertie Beetle’ show bag (most Aussies should know what Bertie beetle is). Random!

  17. A.Key says:

    No wonder she and Goop were close.

  18. A.Key says:

    Also, what do women see in him???? (other than money)

  19. The Wizz says:

    I believe everyone in the music industry is banging others.

  20. Renee says:

    All the time she spends getting her picture taken at home for her “archive” is time she could be spending with her daughter, or reading a book, meditating or learning something new. This is beyond narcism…ridiculous!!!

  21. Sasha says:

    I don’t buy it. Beyoncé is well off on her own and she wouldn’t put up with it. She fired her own father as a manager because he was a weirdo and also cheated on her mom. If anything, it would help her (financially and with her whole nouveau sexy feminism) to leave the man.
    I know “me strong woman” is her “image” , but I believe it, and honestly, Beyoncé is pretty a-ok.

  22. Fab says:

    Thats why Rita everywhere..Without me ever hearing a song of hers..Not gonna search on youtube either..

  23. ToodySezHey says:

    How can she be devastated when everyone has known this for years. I’m sure she knew too.

  24. ToodySezHey says:

    That elevator tape has made it open season on bey and jay

  25. LeahMommy says:

    Beyoncé hasn’t been photograph with Julius since elevator-gate, she has new bodyguards. People are now wondering if she fired Julius(which would be a terrible PR move in lights of these rumors) or if he’s on temporary leave or just on vacation. Either way, Julius is not with her presently and it’s fueling the fire.

  26. Marieeeee says:

    I’ve always had this image in my head of them being an absolute mess behind closed doors. My imagination paints the scene of them trading icy nonchalant insults over opposite ends of a fifteen foot long dinner table in a gigantic silent room… Can you see it? “Do try to remember we’re doing the Met next weekend, dear, so whichever eager young protege it is now is just going to have to wait until after midnight if you can manage it.” *sips champagne*

  27. Patty Cake says:

    I agree with some of the commenters. I think Beyoncé’s pregnancy was faked too. I also think a lot of other female celebs faked their pregnancies too. I remember seeing a pic of Angelina Jolie with her filled belly but the rest of her body didn’t look effected at all. I know every woman doesn’t completely fill out when they’re pregnant but every woman still has some extra weight on their arms and legs that wasn’t there before. In the pic I saw, Angelina didn’t appear to have any extra weight distributed to her limbs. It was all in her belly. No matter how much you eat right and exercise during pregnancy, weight is still distributed amongst your limbs as well as belly. Maybe not evenly distributed but distributed all the same. I think Beyoncé is just the only one that got caught faking her pregnancy. I also believe that Beyoncé knows about some of the women Jay Z has slept with but not all of them. Also, speaking on Rita Ora, I don’t think that she necessarily had to be the one to throw herself at him because she seems to be “budget” by some. Men will prey on women that are vulnerable and in need of something like a female artist seeking a singing career. Jmo.
    As a side note, I think, if there is someone out there laughing right now, its Latavia and Latoya, which are the original Destiny Child members.

  28. mkyarwood says:

    The divorce has likely been planned for awhile. Jay doesn’t rely on positive press for his cash flow as much as Beyonce does and will once they split up. Pretty sure she’s always been aware of his cheating, which would account for her calmness during the elevator situation.

  29. Mingy says:

    I read about Jayz and Nicole Scher..pussycat doll, yea I’m not gonna bother spelling her name.
    Oh well, I hope Bey is getting it from that super hot Julius..
    Whether these rumors are true or not, they’ll both be alright.

  30. lucy says:

    It has always seemed that Beyonce was an approval-seeking submissive empty pleaser type of person, continually seeking validation and attention because that’s all she knows. She was her parents’ little show pony and then became Jay Z’s show pony, but finally the trot ain’t workin’ anymore. Of course she’s devastated — from embarrassment. Anyone who tried as hard as she did to present such a smug self-adoring facade of pretentious condescending “perfection” would feel humiliated when people got a look inside that barn door. Tra- la. Time to grow up, Beyonce. As for gross Jay, he is no catch. No one worth their salt would find him appealing in the least bit. Of course, we’d have less gossip if everyone were mentally healthy and balanced instead of vain and needy, insecure, and power-mad. I do wish we had some talented artists to inspire us instead of this low-hanging fruit for fodder. People with egos as oversized as Jay’s and Beyonce’s make the gossip way too easy.

    • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

      Great great comment – should email to the talk shows, etc. That’s why the music is still quiet popular – better music, better musicians in all the major genres, and definitely cooler, too.
      For the life of me I don’t see how anyone can call this couple cool when they are as calculated as a geometry proof.

    • Lionbdadddy says:

      This comment right here. Best comment, right on the mark.

    • Artemis says:

      It has always seemed that Beyonce was an approval-seeking submissive empty pleaser type of person, continually seeking validation and attention because that’s all she knows. She was her parents’ little show pony and then became Jay Z’s show pony,

      See, something is wrong with that analysis. B loved to sing and dance but it was her father who trained her and turned her into a ‘robot’ from a very young age. He took away her childhood and molded her into a pageant-y workaholic. How can you blame her for that? He instilled that notion that she had to be the best performer, at the detriment of having fun like swimming in the pool with her friends. At the detriment of her mental health as she was depressed for a while during her late teenage years. And it’s not hard to see why when people were bishing about her back then, what with DC changing members and blaming her when it was her dad’s fault. And the fact that she later admitted that before her and J dated, she was scared she would be alone for the rest of her life. So all those awards mean nothing when you have nothing to come home to which is what she basically said for her ‘Beyoncé’ album explanation segments.

      There is a reason why she and her dad never could have a normal relationship, he gave her a career, he taught her the ropes but in the end he didn’t want to be a father to her which is sad.

      As for J, again, people clearly don’t know what they are talking about because she and J did not just start dating off the bat and she was very busy and had barely time for his ass. She doesn’t exist to please J, it was always clear that her career was her main focus for a LONG time. Even J said as much.

      Validation and attention is inherent to celebs of B’s status, otherwise, why did they want to become famous? B works for it so why not. And with all those non-famous people trying to get their 15min, you can argue that a lot of human beings crave this. Most are just not willing to work hard for it and sacrifice other things for it unlike a few outliers.

  31. Patty Cake says:

    Plus 1000000000, lol. New phone. Don’t know where all the symbols are yet, lol

  32. Nima1 says:

    Why in the fresh hell would anyone sleep with him? He is beyond ugly.

  33. Lily says:

    From all the rumors, it seems as though she knows about it but doesn’t care.

  34. Nima1 says:

    Men are just dogs. They can have the prettiest woman on their arms and yet, they are still looking for the next piece of a** – pitiful.

  35. Lionbdadddy says:

    Somehow I wouldn’t put it past him. People who like to parade their happiness the way these two do, shoving it in peoples faces daily are doing it to disguise the darker side of whats really going on. When the rumors of Jay and the women he supposedly been with started surfacing, is when their private life suddenly became public with tireless pictures of the happy family.
    I’ve always believed the Rihanna rumor and half expect the Rita rumor to be true also.

  36. Lauren says:

    I actually like Rita a lot and also don’t think she is budget Rihanna. She has good voice and can sing. She is quite successful in the UK and I am pretty sure her newest single just beat out Calvin Harris’ for the number one spot. So now I think she is at 4 number one singles. Rita does well for herself in the UK/ the rest of Europe and Australia. Just because she isn’t popular in the US doesn’t make her budget.

    Also she he seems very kind/ easy going in her interviews and has a bubbly personality. I also think it’s so adorable how her and Calvin Harris talk about one another/ have such a cute relationship. So yeah I am a fan of the girls style and like her personality and a lot of her songs.

  37. starr says:

    Well, there was that time [in 2013] when Rita Ora showed up at the MTV VMA Awards looking so much like Beyonce, I thought it was Bey from afar on the red carpet. She had totally jacked Bey’s recent new look in time for the show:


    Close up: http://www.voici.fr/var/voi/storage/images/media/multiupload-du-26-aout-2013/rita-bey-pl/8666257-1-fre-FR/rita-bey-pl_reference_article.jpg

    So yeah, I totally believe the Jay/Ora story.

  38. reg says:

    I call BS on this story. Blind item has
    bowence Rita ora and Jay z in a threesome bownce using strap on on Ora. And bownce cruises bars and picks up women on the regular.

    That marriage has been over for a while now.

  39. Aurelia says:

    I believe Niole Kidman faked her first pregnancy too.

    • ds says:

      Yes! If there was ever an odd looking pregnant woman it was Kidman. I know someone mentioned Jolie as a fake due to the weight distribution but my mom was just like that; huge ball infront and from behind there was no way you could tell. She was always petite and a dancer. But Kidman; I remember thinking she didn’t look pregnant at all.

  40. kibbles says:

    I believe there is a directo correlation between Beyonce and Miranda Lambert’s weight loss and growing dissatisfaction with their marriages. Just like with Gwyneth Paltrow’s obsession with her weight and her openness about her sex life which was a cry for attention because her marriage was going down the drain. Sometimes people think weight loss or blow jobs after arguments will save a dying marriage, but it only makes these problems more apparent.

  41. Maria says:

    Beyonce married Jay because he is rich and pwerful. He is not attractive physically, and I am not sure of his great personality ? Beyonce would only really care I think (no woman wants a cheater) if the public knows of his antics and thus humilitates her…

  42. Chris says:

    What I want to know right this instant us what in the name of gawd possessed Rita O to get it on with Justin Blubber. Surely some things just cannot be? Plz?

    • Laura says:

      I know! It’s so weird bc last week the story was “they were hanging out but not flirty at all” and now that her and Calvin broke up, they’re saying they hooked up and were all over eachother. I don’t know what to believe.

      • Chris says:

        Must say my horror isn’t to do with Rita O, but that ANY grown dame would touch that twerp.
        (Still, my secret self finds Jay Z madly attractive (I know shamingly little about the cat, bar photos, and dislike the music, so make allowances for me) so I guess I have specialised tastes myself. Or something.)

  43. Diane Mars says:

    The “problem”, for both, is not the fact that’s true or untrue, but that it was leaked ^_^ !

    Damage control ? Yup !

  44. Fan says:

    I believe that he fooled around with all those ladies mentioned. As I had said before, that was why Solange attacked him in the elevator.

  45. bambinoitaliano says:

    No one says anything about Julian de Boer, so I googled him. Urm no juju gurl! You don’t go from one dog to another. Get a grip of yourself. Don’t you get Bobby Browned by those dogs you hear me!!

  46. Amy says:

    I bet that’s why Solange beat him up in the elevator…

  47. Reg says:

    Solange beat him up in the elevator, cause he just got another woman pregnant.
