Is her marriage over?
The New York Post reports that Beyonce has reportedly been shopping for a new apartment without Jay Z in secret. She looked at a $21.5 million Chelsea penthouse early last month, just weeks after a video leaked showing her sister Solange punching and kicking Jay Z in a Manhattan elevator on May 5. Solange reportedly attacked Jay Z that night because she thought he was going to meet Rihanna. There have been several rumors that Beyonce and Jay Z are close to splitting up. The fact that Jay Z was not present, but usually is very involved in real state deals, has only exacerbated the rumors.
A source said: "She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly."
The source added that Jay Z would not want to leave their current home in Tribeca, which is twice the size of the home on West 19th Street that Beyonce was looking at. The current home is 8,309 square feet while the apartment is 4,045. The source said: "I can say with certainty that Jay is not downsizing. There's no way a $20 million apartment is for her mother or her sister. That would be wildly unlikely."
The home in Chelsea is marketed by Town Residential Realtors Wilbur Gonzalez and Adam Taylor.
