If Jay Z & Beyonce’s Divorce Happens, These Friends Will Have to Choose Sides

Romantic splits can almost never be described as clean breaks. That's certainly true in the case of divorces. There's just too much baggage to deal with, too many things to properly sort out. So, while power couple, Beyoncé and Jay Z haven't split yet , there's a lot in the way of speculation. All the rumors point to one thing: a breakup on the horizon. And their famous friends are going to have to choose who gets full custody of them and who's just getting visitation rights. That can be difficult to do emotionally, so to help out, I've gone and done it for them.

Obvs, Team Bey. Why? Because they’re both strong women. And strong women support each other, right? Right!
