The rumor mill is back in business.
Speculation as to whether or not Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s relationship is on the rocks has been on people’s minds since the rapper’s surprising confrontation with sister-in-law Solange Knowles in May, and now fans have again begun to wonder whether this Hollywood power couple has experienced trouble in paradise.
The famous pair is currently hitting stages across the country for their On the Run tour, and during their show on Saturday night in Cincinnati, Ohio, Bey decided to do a little improv with the lyrics to one of her songs—and it definitely caught the fans’ attention.
Queen B performed “Resentment,” a 2006 track off of her B’Day album, and changed the line “Been ridin’ with you for six years why did I deserve/ To be treated this way by you,” to “Been ridin’ with you for twelve years why did I deserve/ To be treated this way by you,” emphasizing the amount of years she’s been with Jay Z and drawing loud roars from the crowd.
Subsequently, this has caused further speculation about whether or not there was infidelity in their relationship, because the entire song deals with cheating. To give you more of an idea, that particular verse goes a little something like this: “I know she was attractive but I was here first/ Been ridin’ with you for six years why did I deserve/ To be treated this way by you, you/ I know your probably thinking what’s up with Bee/ I been crying for too long what did you do to me.”
So what’s the deal? Sure, she could be drawing to her own music to vent about personal problems, but that just doesn’t seem likely for numerous reasons.
First of all, Beyoncé isn’t one to air her dirty laundry for all to examine and analyze, especially in front of thousands of screaming fans. Secondly, Jay Z is accompanying her on this tour, which would make this alleged outburst extra awkard (you know Hov was probably backstage giving side-eye to this entire situation).
Lastly, have you seen pictures from their tour so far?! These two have been flaunting their love more than ever before. From unveiling never-before-seen wedding footage to sneaking in some smooches while performing on stage, these two seem just as close now, if not closer, as they were from the start. That assless onesie probably helps matters, too.
In conclusion, we think this was just a play with words. Plus, she just posted these super-cute photos of her and Jay while on tour on her website, proving that everything is fine and dandy with their marriage.
