Does Jay Z‘s absence at the 2016 Met Gala on May 2 help support all those rumors about the rapper cheating on Beyonce?
The rapper was nowhere to be found when the diva showed up on the red carpet to the big fashion event alone. Her solo appearance only fueled speculation about their alleged marriage troubles.
A source tells Hollywood Life HOV stayed back home and there's no problem. "Jay Z opted to let Beyonce attend the Met Gala on her own. He wanted her to have a night that was solely dedicated to her, fashion and what the ball is all about. He felt like he could better support her by staying out of the limelight, and avoid any possible ‘Becky’ drama. He wanted to let the light just shine on her, and let her soak it up," a source tells Hollywood Life.
After the release of her new album 'Lemonade,' on April 23, Jay Z has been dogged by cheating rumors. In her lyrics, Queen Bey talked about cheating and another woman known as "Becky with the good hair" trying to wreck her home.
Had he gone to the Met with Beyonce, probably it would have overshadowed Beyonce’s appearance at the fashion event. Besides, she looked amazing! So the attention was focused on the right thing Monday evening — her epic latex gown.
