Beyonce & Jay-Z sent a case of Ace of Spades champagne to Reese Witherspoon

Nominee, Beyonce Knowles-Carter, and Jay-Z at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA on Sunday, January 5, 2020.

One of the most bizarrely controversial stories we’ve had this week involved Beyonce and Jay-Z attending the Golden Globes. They arrived late to the event – where Beyonce was nominated – and they avoided all of the photographers on the carpet. They made sure to post full-length photos on social media though, so we still got to see Bey’s great dress and diamonds. Once inside, Bey and Jay were seated near the center of main room, at Ellen DeGeneres’s table. They brought their own booze: Armand de Brignac champagne, aka the Ace of Spades. Also, Bey didn’t stand for Joaquin Phoenix when he won, but that’s 100% understandable because Joker is trash. Why the controversy again?

Anyway, something else happened at the Globes: Reese Witherspoon’s table ran out of water, so she went over to Beyonce’s table and asked if they would share. Jay-Z poured them some glasses of the champagne he brought. Reese and Jennifer Aniston posted about it on Instagram. It seemed funny and sweet. And then this happened:

Reese Witherspoon‘s bar is well stocked thanks to JAY-Z and Beyoncé! The 43-year-old actress revealed on Thursday that the powerhouse couple sent a case of champagne to her home following their Golden Globes run-in, in which Witherspoon asked JAY-Z, 50, and Beyoncé, 38, for some of their bubbly when her table ran out of water.

In a series of videos shared on her Instagram Stories, Witherspoon can be seen standing beside a big black box branded with the Armand de Brignac logo.

“Y’all! Came home to the best surprise from @beyonce and Jay-Z,” she captioned the clip. The Oscar winner then reads the note attached to the gift, “It says, ‘More water from Jay and B.’”

Despite the early time, Witherspoon and her mom, Betty, pops open one of their newly gifted bottles of champagne to celebrate.

“It’s 11:30. We’re drinking champagne,” the star says with a laugh. “Who cares? It’s from JAY-Z and Beyoncé. It’s really good,” she says after taking a sip from a champagne glass. “It’s a good way to start the new year.”

I’m including the video below. It’s very cute and I don’t get why people are so upset with Beyonce and Jay-Z for, like, existing and going to awards shows and not standing for self-indulgent trash movies. This was also great promotion for Ace of Spades (which Jay owns outright), in addition to being very classy from Bey-Z. Reese was thrilled!

    Her mom is sooo cute and funny. I laughed and watched this several times yesterday when she posted. It is amazing how much Reese, Ava, and Betty all three generations look alike.

  2. Louise177 says:

    I still don’t understand why people were raging that they bought champagne. Nobody went ballistic when Melissa McCarthy brought sandwiches a year or two ago. I remember a few times when people had food delivered and nobody said they were disrespectful.

    • FC says:

      Because the event was sponsored by Moet. And she is campaigning for an Oscar. I guess she thinks sending gifts to Academy members is enough?

      • Nikki* says:

        Oh, I’m glad you explained that. It definitely puts bringing your own competing champagne in a very poor light.

    • lucy2 says:

      I posted in the other story, there’s celebs who bring their own flasks to award shows, including Meryl Streep. I’m sure other people have brought stuff in as well, especially if you know you like a certain drink or brand.

      I think it’s cute they sent Reese the champagne, and she and her mom enjoyed it.

  3. lucia says:

    “Bey’s great dress” uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh no.

    Beyoncé and Jay-z care about literally no one but themselves. The champagne is also really bad since Jay bought a budget brand.

    • Oh No says:

      It’s of no consequence if you don’t like them or their enterprises. But please don’t make a sweeping statement that they don’t care for anyone but themselves.

      Just because they aren’t loud about it, doesn’t mean they don’t put their money where there mouth is. All it takes is a quick Google search to learn how involved they have been in the fight for racial equality

      • lucia says:

        I’m aware of their charitable deeds. That does not in any way change the fact it is all about them them them. See: NFL.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        actually, lucia, it does change your “fact”.

        if they give charitably, they are, by definition, thinking of others’ well being as well. so, no, they don’t “literally” care about only themselves.

        what about the NFL do you refer to?

    • FlyLikeABird says:

      @lucia lolol. just say you’re bitter coz you can’t afford the champagne and mooove, hater. y’all angry beckys kill me. I bet you would’ve called the police on them, had you been allowed in the globes. lmaooo.

      • Kit says:

        Just say you’re a deranged 18 year old and go. People are allowed to criticize them without being broke haters. What do you get out of defending them since they don’t care if you exist?

    • Michele says:

      Agreed. Two over inflated ego bags.

      • Amy says:

        I find Beyonce and Jayz exhausting. The more I read about them the more I find the very un-classy. I don’t understand the hype. The more you really peel back and look at them, the more awful I see.
        And before someone even makes a mention of it’s because of their race, its not. I think anyone showing up late and bringing their own bottles (to a event sponsored by an alcohol brand) unclassy and disrespectful. Celebs often show up late events, I get it happens, but they often show up late and avoid red carpets.

      • Mercury says:

        I love Jay Z and Beyonce – they do a lot for the African American community

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      Her dress is terrible, truly.
      I don’t know what has happened to her styling
      She is a queen and she does slay but not in this dress

  4. Lucy says:

    I love the bottle! Very unusual. This was nice from the Carters.

  5. Erin says:

    This is the totally wholesome story I needed today, thanks!! This is adorable.

  6. Becks1 says:

    Haha I love this! I love when celebs can take a random story like this and keep it going.

  7. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    I’m just here and commenting to encourage more stories that aren’t about Sussexit! I can’t take any more! Would even happily consume a story about one of those cat-faced Real Housewives today!

    • Cindy says:

      I support this message. I can’t care less about Meghan and Harry and I feel exhausted by them just reading the headlines.

      • Lady Baden-Baden says:

        For me, it’s less about interest – M&H’s decision is understandable and I applaud it (and hope it contributes to bringing down the monarchy at last, to be honest) – but there are a lot of stories, many of them quoting stuff from the Daily Mail and other gutter press sites, which not only provides those sites with more hits and ultimately leads to even MORE offensive articles, but also works everybody up and leads to increasingly angry and argumentative BTL comments. It’s depressing.

    • Green Desert says:

      My unsolicited advice to those who feel that way…just don’t click on the stories. I can’t stand the Kardashian/Jenners so I just don’t read any CB articles on those fools. But it’s easier said than done in the Sussex instance…you’ll have less CB stories to read these days!

      This is a cute story on the Carters!

  8. Trish-a says:

    Very cute and sweet. I like Beyoncé not those sleeves for GG. Have no sheets to give if she stood.
    My question is are those old champagne glasses in?
    My parents had those. Is this a thing now?

  9. ItReallyIsYouNotMe says:

    Thoughtful gesture and good marketing. Please post some more feel-good stories like this.

    • Lillian says:

      Sweet comment 🙂 I think it was a classy loving low-key gesture. I was in the arts- always bring what you need to keep a polite smile on your face when needed. Also, no matter the venue, it can be seen as “taking advantage of resources” to use more than a glass of what is provided. What they did was polite and self-reliant, in a venue that left a guest wanting for….water.

  10. moco says:

    Instagram gives me the impression that celebrities send each other gifts constantly. They’re always opening amazing things from each other or each others’ companies. It’s fascinating.

  11. gelya says:

    Thanks CB for the fun story. I had a good laugh. Reese & her Mom are so sweet and just having fun. It was a nice change from the doom and gloom. In defense of Beyonce. I wouldn’t have stood up either. Makes me wonder how many other people didn’t stand up but she just gets targeted because she’s BEYONCE! I am not a fan. I like her music. I feel sorry for a lot of the stars for being targeted for being normal and human.

  12. Penguin says:

    The dress and diamonds – awesome
    Sending champagne to Reese and the video – sweet
    Champagne at the globes would have been fine if you didn’t own the label- being the owner it makes it a publicity stunt, rather than a statement – not fine

  13. MB says:

    One of her worst looks, imo

  14. Gabby says:

    The trend of huge, statement sleeves needs to die a quick death. Her dress would have been gorgeous with simple sleeves, like a whole lot of others on the GG red carpet.
