Hollywood's reigning power couple may be splitting up, and it's not without controversy. Jay Z and Beyonce are rumored to announce their divorce post their joint On the Run tour, and fans are suspicious about the fact that the potential split will come on the heels of a swirl of rumors about the couple. Bey and Jay's relationship is often fodder for gossip, but lately, the rumors have been very specific. Prior to the steadily increasing divorce whispers, Jay Z has been accused of cheating on his wife of five years with several famous women. And on Tuesday, one of Jay Z's "mistresses" dropped a weird video that implies Jay Z isn't treating Beyonce with a lot of respect. Could Jay's cheating ways be the reason behind this power couple's potential divorce? It's certainly possible.
While cheating rumors go with the celebrity territory, Beyonce herself fueled the fire during their tour when she altered the lyrics in her song "Resentment" during a Cincinnati show, and once again at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. In Cincinnati, instead of singing the original lyrics, "been ridin' with you for six years," Bey sang, "been ridin' with you for 12 years," which many fans thought was a knock at her husband, whom she was with for — you guessed it — 12 years. Considering the song is about a woman who is repeatedly lied to by her man, it doesn't exactly bode well for their relationship.
And neither do the pesky cheating rumors. Here are the women whom Jay Z has allegedly seen behind Bey's back. Unfortunately for Jay, not one of them can hold a candle to Queen Bey.
The singer worked with Jay Z back in 2005 when Jay was with Def Jams, and rumors have swirled about how "close" the two were ever since. Beyonce was allegedly envious of Rihanna, who, at the time, was the "next big thing."
The singer and future Fifty Shades of Gray star was attacked on Twitter for "bukin'" it with Jay by Geordie Shore cast member Holly Hagen. Rita fought back against the allegations in the least mature way possible, but rumors of Rita and Jay's alleged "affair" have stuck around.
Mya took to Twitter to deny rumors of an affair with Jay, which stemmed from a blind gossip item which named her as his "mainstay" mistress.
Now, here's a crazy rumor. Star of Princesses of Long Island Casey Cohen was accused of hooking up with Jay behind Beyonce's back — a rumor that she claims is false. According to Casey, the only interaction she has had with Jay has been at her job at NYC nightclub 1OAK, where she works as a waitress.
Designer Rachel Roy was named during the fateful "Elevatorgate" scandal, and was allegedly the one who angered Solange Knowles before she went after Jay in the elevator. Rumors claim that the reason Solange was so mad at Rachel was because Jay had been seeing her on the side.
Oh, Bey. Let's hope none of these rumors are true. Let's hope all is well in Carterland. But if they do decide to split, Beyonce is lucky that she's such a fabulous single lady.
