An Ohio man was reportedly stabbed last week after it was realized that he was unaware that Grammy-winning singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter is married to hip-hop star Jay-Z.
Reports on the stabbing and the events leading up to the incident emerged online this week.
A fight over a music video led to a Garfield Heights man being stabbed outside a Parma apartment on New Year Eve. Det. Marty Compton of the Parma Police Department tells Fox 8 News that Ronald Deaver, 31, of Parma, was arrested and charged with felonious assault for allegedly stabbing a 48-year-old Garfield Heights man following an argument. Det. Compton says the fight began because the victim did not know that singer Beyonce’s husband is rapper Jay-Z. (Fox News)
Although the stabbing proved not to be fatal, the victim was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
An arrest report obtained by Fox 8 News states the alleged stabbing occurred around 11:00 p.m. on December 31, 2011, outside Deaver’s apartment on Broadview Road. Det. Compton says authorities were called following the stabbing and the victim was taken to a local hospital. He was later transferred to MetroHealth Medical Center where he is currently listed in good condition. Police attempted to locate Deaver at his apartment, but according to the report, a woman in the residence, Jennifer Fornari, 31, told officers that Deaver no longer lived there. Deaver was located by police a short time later and Fornari was arrested on an obstructing justice charge. (Fox News)
The R&B phenom and her husband are awaiting their birth of her first child.
A parody Twitter account under the name “@CNNBreaking” — with more than 17,000 followers — is reporting that Beyonce had her baby — and Twitter followers are retweeting the false tweet like crazy. But, RumorFix can tell you, the rumors are not true- Beyonce and Jay-Z aren’t parents yet. (Of course, that could change at any minute). The pop star was scheduled to perform live on Dick Clark‘s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, but host Ryan Seacrest said, “Obviously, Beyoncé couldn’t be here tonight because she’s about to give birth to her first child.” The ABC special did air a pre-recorded performace of “I Was Here” that Beyonce taped in London.

The singer and father-to-be Jay-Z were spotted dining in Brooklyn over the weekend.
As we’ve noted in the past, Beyoncé–and by extension, her husband Jay-Z–have immaculate restaurant taste. So it’s really no surprise that on our way out the door from celebrating New Year’s at one of our favorite Brooklyn restaurants, Buttermilk Channel, that we heard whispers that the couple was on their way. D*mn, really? And sure enough, we soon could confirm that Jay, B and unborn child were seated in a cozy table in the back. So, no, she did not check into the hospital to have her baby.
