Jay Z and Beyoncé, the most powerful couple in music, are reportedly on the verge of divorce after months of explosives rows and years of infidelity.
According to Life &Style magazine, the Single Ladies hitmaker and her rapper husband no longer love each other and are keen to keep their split a secret.
A source tells the magazine that Jay Z's infidelity is a big issue and Queen B will no longer put up with him 'spending nights with other women'. Her jealous streak is thought to have led to 'explosive arguments 'in recent months.
"It's been really rocky for them. There is trouble in paradise. Divorce is inevitable - and Beyoncé's only option," the magazine reports.
Although Beyoncé is allegedly keen to call it quits, she wants to protect her 'perfect family' image until the financial aspects have been worked out.
The 32-year-old songstress and rap mogul have a combined net worth of $900m and according to some divorce experts, their split could leave both parties out of pocket.
"It would be the most expensive celebrity divorce in history," Goldie Schon, a California family lawyer, told Life & Style. "Attorneys' fees and professional fees could be in excess of $100,000 every month. The cost of divorce is endless.
"Beyoncé is extremely careful about her image, and everything she does is thought out and planned. She is obsessed with them appearing as the perfect family."
Beyonce and Jay Z's relationship, which has been blighted by rumours of illuminati affiliation and infidelity, was propelled the spotlight after footage emerged of Beyoncé's sister Solange Knowles attacking her brother-in-law after the Met Gala.
Fans were not only shocked to see Knowles violently kicking and punching the 99 Problems singer in a lift at the Standard Hotel, but they were even more surprised that Beyoncé did not intervene.
The rumour mill also went into overdrive after some celebrity watchers noticed that Beyoncé appeared to have had her wedding tattoo removed from her ring finger.
