THE REAL DEAL: TMZ wasn’t the only three-letter news source that kept the rumor mill churning all year long. “Rumors of trouble in paradise started after the now infamous elevator incident in May…there were whispers that divorce was on the horizon,” reported CNN
in September, referring to one of the most overanalyzed viral videos of 2014. In it, Beyoncé’s sister, Solange, appeared to be getting in some impromptu kick-boxing practice on her brother-in-law after NYC’s Met Gala. Even Time
found this to be a newsworthy story, reporting that the couple renewed their vows in October despite ongoing buzz about an imminent breakup. A source close to the couple insists to ETonline: “The media made it all up.” Now, however, the story has already shifted to chatter about a new addition to America’s royal family. “Forget those divorce rumors!” announced the Hollywood Life blog
this week. “Beyoncé and Jay Z are allegedly expecting their second child together, a new report claims. And this time, the “XO” singer is hoping for a boy! One thing is for certain: If Beyoncé
is hoping for anything these days, it’s that people stop speculating that a modern woman cannot have a successful career as well as a successful marriage.
