Despite 12 years of marriage and successful careers both together and apart, Beyonce and Jay Z are reportedly teetering on the brink of a split.

Rumours started swirling after the now-infamous elevator fight at this year’s Met Ball, when Beyonce’s sister Solange Knowles was filmed physically attacking Jay Z during a night of seemingly innocent festivities.

Earlier this year, diehard fans of the pop star noticed when she suggestively altered the lyrics of an unreleased song called Resentment, believed to be about Jay Z’s affair with another singer.

The original lyrics are, “I’ll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn’t do it for you like your mistress could/Been ridin’ with you for six years […] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me.”

The lyrics she performed at a February concert were, “I’ll always remember feeling like I was no good / Like I couldn’t do it for you like that wack b***h could/Been ridin’ with you for twelve years […] I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me. She ain’t even half of me. That b***h will never be.

In the midst of the scandal, Beyonce and Jay Z have hit the road for their his and hers On the Run tour which is being taped for an HBO series.

According to a report in The Mirror UK, the couple are receiving marriage counselling throughout the duration of the tour.

Meanwhile, the couple still have to prioritise their roles as parents to their two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.
