Star: Beyonce & Jay-Z have three sessions a week with Goop’s therapist?


In case you missed it, Beyonce and Jay-Z’s “On the Run” Tour kicked off on Wednesday night in Miami. It got wide play yesterday because Beyonce and Jay included some footage from their 2008 wedding, and that’s the first time we’ve ever seen anything about anything from their wedding. You can see one of the fan videos here – from what I could see, Beyonce’s wedding gown was strapless and simple? And she and Jay got their IV tattoos together. Blah. Anyway, this tour might serve as some kind of “reboot” for Jay and Bey after the world got up in their business following Solange’s elevator beatdown. But what if Bey and Jay also needed some outside help? Outside help from… Gwyneth Paltrow’s therapist?

After months of speculation that their marriage isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, Beyonce and Jay-Z have decided to enter couples therapy.

“They’ve been talking through their issues,” dishes a pal. “It’s helped a lot.”

The couple has decided to patch things up following Solange Knowles’ violent elevator attack in May. “Their marriage hasn’t been right since that night… they are both very controlled about their public image, so the fact that the whole world suddenly knows their business has been hard on them.”

Immediately following the fight, Gwyneth Paltrow put them in touch with her therapist, who was responsible for her “conscious uncoupling” concept. Now Beyonce and Jay attend three sessions a week.

“Jay suddenly realized that he has a lot to lose… he told Rachel Roy to never call or email him again. There will be no more cozy dinners or late-night phone calls. He even deleted her number from his phone to prove to Bey that he’s serious.”

Now Beyonce and Jay-Z are getting back on track. “They realized that having problems can make you stronger. They think they are unbreakable and that, ultimately, nothing can come between them.”

That’s an interesting detail about Rachel Roy, I guess. But I don’t believe that there was and is only one problem in Jay and Bey’s marriage, and it certainly isn’t limited to Rachel Roy. But would they go see one of Gwyneth’s therapists about it? Especially after the consciously uncoupling nonsense? I doubt it. It feels like the Knowles family’s version of therapy is Solange and some brass knuckles taking care of business.

    At least,with the help of therapist,Paltrow-Martin breakup is very friendly

  2. ncboudicca says:

    Yeah, like Jay-Z only has one phone…

  3. QQ says:

    Well the vids of The wedding and Blue were cute and splendidly damage controlly, but ROTFL at going to see Gwynneth’s therapist (if that is even true, that and the Rachel Roy thing sound like a work of fiction) ..cause that worked really good for their buddies LOL

  4. epiphany says:

    I thought Goop and Beyawnce’s friendship ended last year. Oh, and you don’t need relationship counseling for a business arrangement. A good accountant, yes, but not a therapist.

    • Faye says:

      There’s certainly an element of a business relationship to this marriage. Look at how they’re always pushing for their privacy – “but oh look, here’s some footage from our wedding at our concert!” RME

      • Tapioca says:

        It’s funny how they were so private until almost the exact moment Beyonce’s 4 album sales came in and now they’re pushing their relationship so hard.

        Purely coincidence, obviously…

      • diva says:

        I agree. They are selling their personal life now to keep people’s attention. In my eyes they are no different then kim and Kanye.

    • epiphany says:

      And recall, up until about 18-24 months ago, these two didn’t discuss their relationship at all. Hell, they wouldn’t even concede they were legally married! Something happened – no clue what it was, but I’m pretty convinced that when the paps aren’t around, two live essentially separate lives.

  5. Corrie says:

    As well, RR is dating/engaged to Jays ex partner and friend. He’s not hitting that. And don’t all married couples have issues. They’re no different.

    • MCraw says:

      No she’s not, and no he’s not. Dame Dash and JayZ had a very public breakup years ago. Jay is notorious for using people and dropping them after getting to a certain level, even after decades of success together. And RR is Dame’s ex wife with whom he has children, they get along well despite being separated. Although, I don’t see why Dame would be a factor in them hooking up… H’wood is full of ppl who do this daily.

  6. Jaderu says:

    Beyonce is wearing an onion sack on her head. Screw the therapist Goopy, she needs Tim Gunn, STAT!

  7. Ag says:

    because that worked so well for goop and chris?

    also, i keep reading “rachel ray.” lol

    • K.A says:

      God help me, me too!!! Every single time I read “Rachel Roy”, Rachel Ray pops up in my head. I hate everybody in this mess.

  8. Loopy says:

    Elevatorgate really made people view them in a different light, but that is what happens when you want to portray perfection, one day you will slip.

    • KayLastima says:

      We saw what they accept as “normal” in their relationship and for a lot of us we can’t just go merrily along and pretend that we were not horrified by it. Their sham life is a gigantic slap in the face and I have turned my back on them for those reasons ( and many others, “cough” drug dealer, “cough” extremely slutty onstage behavior).

  9. Pam says:

    I think they’re both awesome people but I do fear this concert tour might tear the relationship apart. I’ve read many times that it’s better for couples to have separate jobs to go to so they get a chance to ‘miss’ each other a bit during the day where conversely they can tire of each other and end up arguing more. Time will tell and hopefully that therapist can strengthen things during tough times.

    • Skittles says:

      I agree and ticket sales are not where they should be either, so it will be interesting to see how they deal with the narrative of this tour not being as successful as it was projected to be.I hope the iceberg wasn’t tipped starting with the incident. Everything just seems a little off now since then and is causing folks to analyze them a bit more underneath the surface of what they present to the public.
