The New York Post seems pretty adamant that it’s only a matter of Beyoncé and Jay Z’s On the Run summer concert tour coming to a close before the couple splits. And after Beyoncé was spotted apartment hunting without Jay Z early last month, the rumors are swirling now more than ever.
All the discussion of splitsville for the power couple started back in May thanks to the now-legendary elevator fight where Beyoncé’s sister Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z. A source told The New York Post that Solange attacked Jay Z because she thought he was planning on meeting up with Rihanna later that night and didn’t like that her brother-in-law was straying.
We think the gossip has gone a bit too far in this case. Who knows what’s really going on with Beyoncé and Jay Z behind closed doors because at this point, all we have are rumors. Meanwhile, Beyoncé is continually posting pictures of her little family on Instagram, saying how grateful she is for them. Here are our top reasons why we think all the stories don’t have any clout.
1. A picture’s worth a thousand words
Beyoncé captioned the above photo, “My favorite hue is JayZ Blue.”
And it isn’t the only picture of the family she’s been posting recently. The proud wife and mama has been sharing all sorts of adorable pics. It could be she’s trying to squelch rumors or it could be that the family really is simply that happy together.

2. Ticket sales are booming
Chicago critic Greg Kot suggested, “Maybe it’s all just a plot hatched by Beyoncé and Jay Z to keep the media’s ongoing fascination with their lives and careers at a fever pitch.” Their tour is doing phenomenally well. The couple is expected to rake in $84 million, according to The New York Post.
It would be a clever tactic, especially since Jay Z and Beyoncé have always been so private previously.
3. That sexy Grammys performance
How soon we forget the insane chemistry in their Grammy performance this year. Could a connection like this die in only a few short months?
4. As if they aren’t rich enough
The New York Daily News is saying, according to unnamed sources, that the only reason Beyoncé and Jay Z are still together is for the money. As if they aren’t rich enough. According to the article, the couple is so unhappy together they can’t wait for the tour to end. In our minds, if it was that torturous for them to be together, they would have called it quits already. Even if the couple is going through a hard time, we doubt the situation is as dire as the rumors try to paint.
5. All “signs” point to love
We’re not just talking about astrology here, though she is a Virgo and he’s a Sagittarius, which do complement each other perfectly. The biggest point is that they seem to have similar life goals and ideals. They’re music royalty, and that compatibility doesn’t just go away.
6. They have a secret pact
According to a source who spoke with Hollywood Life, Beyoncé and Jay Z are committed to making their marriage work, which is why they waited so long (they dated for six years) to get married. Now, with their daughter Blue Ivy, the couple is focusing on fixing their problems but are in no way ready to call it quits.
