Jay Z and Beyonce have drifted so far apart it's threatening to ruin their current On The Run tour. The New York Post's Page Six reports that the married couple are staying in separate hotels and arriving at each show at different times.
There are five dates left on the tour, which is scheduled to end in Paris on September 13, but a source says it could end a lot sooner.
“This may not make it to San Francisco (August 5),” a source said. “I’m definitely not sure that they’ll make it to Paris.”
Because of growing rumors that a divorce is imminent the power couple met with Live Nation, HBO and at least four lawyers on Thursday, July 31, to address the situation and do some damage control by putting out a joint statement, however Jay and Beyonce couldn't agree on what it would say
Live Nation is heavily invested in the current situation because they are promoting the tour. HBO is set to air an On The Run special September 20.
“There are lawyers that have now joined the tour, and they’re not here just to see them perform. They are here to help hash things out,” the source told Page Six.
The couple reportedly didn't sign a prenuptial agreement. Jay is worth $550 million. Beyonce is sitting on a sizable net worth of $300 million. Distribution of assets is a concern, as is which network will get the post divorce interviews.
“They’ve had discussions lately about the inevitable sit-down interview when they finally do split, and Jay’s been adamant that he doesn’t want Beyoncé sitting down with Barbara Walters or Oprah Winfrey pretending to be the victim,” the source said.
