Beyonce & Jay Z Divorcing?: Cousin Shanica Knowles Reveals She’s Still Considering It

Oh snap! Beyonce made everyone question the stability of her marriage to Jay Z with her new 'Lemonade' album, and now her cousin, Shanica Knowles, has spilled the beans about those infidelity rumors. Keep reading to see what she has to say about the alleged cheating! Beyonce's, 34, cousin, actress Shanica Knowles, 25, is dishing that Bey and Jay Z, 46, did in fact have to deal with cheating issues in the past in a new interview. The couple apparently see Lemonade as a way to repair their broken marriage. Don't think that means Queen Bey isn't ruling out divorce as an option, though!

“Beyonce’s been encouraged to write about the affair rumours to help her deal with it all and help her determine whether she could work through everything or had to end the marriage,” Shanica spilled to Heat magazine. “This has been a long process and I’ve heard they’ve had to deal with silent separations and splits over the past few years, but Beyonce is praying that this album will actually save their marriage.”

“She’s been through the intense anger and I think she’s now learning to forgive Jay,” the singer’s cousin went on. “The next few months are going to be the test, this is now make or break for them, but Bey’s determined to do everything she can to make it work.” Let’s hope!


All of this did-he-really-cheat-on-her talk came about when Beyonce dropped her new album on April 23, and she sang about “Becky with the good hair.” Many think that line is about Jay and the girl he allegedly cheated with. There has been talk for a few years now that Jay did his wife dirty and hooked up with fashion designer Rachel Roy, 42. Many assume that Rachel is in fact Becky. It is also believed that infamous elevator fight went down before the Met Gala in 2014, because of Rachel and Jay, too.
