"Evidence," in the form of anonymous reports from tabloid sources, continues to mount that Beyonce and Jay Z are headed for a split. The latest: They're reportedly staying in separate hotels (not just rooms—separate establishments) and arriving separately to each show on their joint tour, a source tells the New York Post. Last week, sources say an emergency meeting was held between the couple, their concert promoter Live Nation, four lawyers, and HBO, which is planning a big TV special on the "On the Run" tour this fall. "This may not make it to San Francisco," a source says of the tour, which is scheduled to hit that city today. "I’m definitely not sure that they’ll make it to Paris," for the last show scheduled in September.
Lawyers have actually "joined the tour" to "help hash things out," one source says. At the meeting, Live Nation and HBO executives wanted to put out a statement, but Bey and Jay reportedly couldn't agree on what it would say, so that plan was kiboshed. As for what's behind the marriage trouble, a source says Jay is too controlling, and that even if they do split, he's "been adamant that he doesn’t want Beyonce sitting down with Barbara Walters or Oprah Winfrey pretending to be the victim." Meanwhile, Beyonce "commented" on the infamous elevator incident between Jay Z and her sister, Solange, via a remix of her song "Flawless," the Telegraph reports. The new lyrics: "We escalate, up in this b---- like elevators / Of course sometimes s--- goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator."
