Beyonce Might Be Shopping For An Apartment Without Jay-Z, So Brace Yourselves

The rumors that Beyonce and Jay-Z are on the rocks just won't stop, and now we have yet another one to add to the pile. According to The New York Post, Beyonce is shopping for a New York City apartment on her own. As in, without her husband. This is all according to sources, of course.

Beyonce apparently looked at a $21.5 million Chelsea penthouse last month. The Post points out that was just weeks after her sister Solange was caught on camera attacking Jay. And according to a source, Beyonce seemed like she didn't want anyone to know what she was doing: “She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly.” Okay, but she's a celebrity, so she probably wouldn't want to shout her every move from the rooftops, especially where housing is concerned. And couldn't it be possible that Jay-Z just wasn't available to look with her, so she did it alone?

The Post says it's still suspicious, because apparently Jay is usually very involved in their real estate dealings, and he apparently doesn't want to leave their current place in Tribeca, which is more than twice the size of the place Beyonce was looking at. A source says, “I can say with certainty that Jay is not downsizing.” So apparently, if we continue to listen to this source, the new place would be just for Beyonce and Blue Ivy. Couldn't it be a gift for someone? The source rules that out too, saying something so expensive is unlikely to be for anyone but her. But Beyonce has a lot of money, so I wouldn't put it past her.

And yet the reports of an impending split just will not go away, from rumors of infidelity to Beyonce maybe removing her wedding tattoo to that time she changed the lyrics of a song to suggest that Jay is cheating on her. Not to mention all the “lady doth protest too much” moments, like playing their wedding footage at their concert and posting happy family photos with Blue Ivy. Is this the final rumor we'll hear before this divorce becomes a reality? I'd start getting your apocalypse bunker ready just in case. Because you know all hell is going to break loose if this happens.
