Beyonce Seen Shopping For A Solo Apartment In New York
Jay Z and Beyonce have been putting on a happy front for the cameras amid divorce rumors while they are on their nationally sold-out tour…but a recent real-estate shopping trip may be the writing on the wall. Beyonce has been spotted looking for a new apartment for herself and Blue…without Jay Z. Maybe there’s a few ounces of truth to the cheating chatter we’ve heard?? Via NYPost:
Beyoncé may already have one foot out the door — she’s been secretly shopping for new digs without Jay Z, sources told The Post.
The booty-ful belter looked at a $21.5 million Chelsea penthouse early last month — weeks after a videotaped elevator-smackdown involving Bey’s sister, Solange Knowles, and Jay, and amid growing rumors of an impending break-up, said sources close to the superstar couple.
“She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly,” a source said.
Fueling the notion that Beyoncé is not shopping for the both of them is the fact that Jay Z has always been extremely involved in their real-estate deals, sources said.
Yet he was nowhere to be seen during the apartment showing, they added.
Jay also would be loathe to leave their current posh Tribeca pad, a source said.
Noting that the couple’s 8,309-square-foot Tribeca crib is more than twice the size of the 4,045-square-foot West 19th Street pad Bey was looking at, the source added, “I can say with certainty that Jay is not downsizing.”
The source said it would seem clear the new home is for Beyoncé and their 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
“There’s no way a $20 million apartment is for her mother or her sister. That would be wildly unlikely,’’ the source said.
As The Post reported Sunday, sources say it’s not a question of if the power couple will split but when.
The Chelsea pad is being marketed by Town Residential Realtors Wilbur Gonzalez and Adam Taylor, who declined to comment.
A publicist for Beyoncé hung up when asked for a comment, while a Jay Z rep said she knew nothing about either of them looking for a new apartment.
Isht is getting real…
