Uh oh! Beyonce went stag to the Met Ball on May 2, and though she looked like a total diva and definitely didn’t need a date to shine, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she wasn’t too happy to be going alone. She actually “begged” Jay Z to come! Here’s the scoop.
Beyonce, 34, looked absolutely amazing on the red carpet of the Met Ball om May 2, but it turns out she was actually upset to have to be there alone! A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY on May 3 that Bey “begged” husband Jay Z, 46, to come along, but he refused. Here’s what we know.
“Jay wanted no part of Met,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “HOV didn’t want to be bombarded with questions from every which way. He didn’t want Beyonce’s celebrity girl friends giving him the side eye and treating him like dirt because of Lemonade. He didn’t want his boys who attended to blame him for all the flack their girls are giving him over Bey’s songs. And he certainly didn’t want to see Solange, given what happened to him in that elevator.”
“Yeah, Jay wasn’t feeling the Met,” the source continued. However, that doesn’t mean Beyonce didn’t want to bring him as her date. “Beyonce begged him to come. She low key wanted to see him squirm under all the pressure he’d be under. But he didn’t have the guts to come and even told Beyonce he was feeling sick earlier in the day. She knew he was lying about being sick but she didn’t spend too much time trying to twist his arm. She was too excited preparing for the gala.”
