Beyonce and Jay Z

*Life & Style and its sister publication In Touch were the original outlets to report that Beyonce was drunk and acting a fool at Kelly Rowland’s birthday party (two weeks ago), to the point where she announced in front of all the guests that she was divorcing Jay Z.

The fact that this has not made CNN’s scroll should say something about the validity of the story. In any case, the rumor-busting website Gossip Cop has come forward to state the obvious – the report is false.

Life & Style reported Wednesday that Beyoncé got so drunk, “wild” and “increasingly out of control” at Rowland’s party at the Sunset Tower Hotel last month, that she “took off her wedding ring and held it in the air. Then she told people that it was one of the last times they’d see it. She said she was ending her marriage to Jay Z. Everyone was shocked,” one “partygoer” was quoted as saying.

The magazine says Beyoncé’s mom Tina “quickly shifted into damage-control mode. She grabbed her daughter, and after a hushed conversation, Beyoncé announced that she hadn’t mean it, saying it was just the alcohol talking. But the partygoer saw her in tears later that night,” leading people to think that, “if anything, the alcohol brought out the truth.”

The magazine further quotes an “insider” as saying, “She’s making plans to divorce Jay Z. She’s even been house-hunting for her own place, so she can start living her new life once the time comes.”

Per Gossip Cop:

To recap: Life & Style wants readers to believe that Beyoncé was publicly wasted at a popular hotel and told people she was getting divorced, but the news only leaked to just this outlet? And it’s only coming out nearly two weeks later? Sure.

Gossip Cop has busted Life & Style in the past for telling tall tales about Beyoncé, and last fall we correctly called out sister publication In Touch for doing a whole cover story on the superstar supposedly making a “divorce announcement.” That, of course, never happened, and the “ending marriage” declaration didn’t happen at Rowland’s birthday party, either.

By the way, Beyoncé and Jay looked like anything but a divorcing couple at the Clippers game on Monday.

They were also all smiles courtside at a game the same day as Rowland’s bash. Looks like Life & Style is once again divorced from the truth.
