R&B singer Akon has weighed in on the controversy surrounding music moguls Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter following daily breakup reports. #thecarteradministration
In Akon’s perspective, the duo are investing too much time into making their love for one another look business-fueled.
Akon was in D.C. Monday and was super open to our photog about celebrity relationships … particularly Jay and Bey. What he says is really interesting. Akon feels the mega-couple always presented their relationship to the public as more of a business than a real relationship. He says famous people need to be open with their fans about their relationships or else they invite the kind of rumors that have dogged Jay Z and Beyonce lately. (TMZ)
A few days ago, Bey and Jay hugged away their critics at a Washington performance.
Beyonce and Jay Z got super snuggly during their Wednesday night concert in Seattle … clearly an overt display to counter numerous reports of an imminent split. There have been a slew of stories in the wake of the elevator video … postulating theories about the relationship. The NY Daily News reported this week … the couple is putting on a good face only because of their current tour. (TMZ)
Reports last week claimed Bey’s newly released family photos were an effort to keep their multi-million dollar “On The Run” tour profits growing.
“This is a classic case of damage control. Staged photos, tweets, it’s a business relationship,” says our well-placed insider. “They’re on tour and to get through the tour they have to put up a persona. It’s all spelled out. It’s more financially beneficial for them to continue the tour and the Instagrams and tweets while all this is happening. That’s how damage control works.” (NY Daily News)
Queen Bey relied on a photo of Young Hov and their daughter Blue Ivy Carter to silence the split gossip last month.
The 32-year-old posted a photo to her Instagram Tuesday afternoon of her rapper hubby carrying their toddler Blue Ivy across a tropical beach. “My favorite hue is Jay Z blue” she noted as he stood against a gorgeous sea. (RumorFix)
