Beyoncé and Jay Z are reportedly having online marriage counselling.

The couple - who are currently on their joint 'On The Run' world tour - are said to be having counselling sessions with a therapist on the Internet via video-chat programme Skype, in order to keep their relationship going strong.

A source revealed: "It might sound drastic but in America especially, counselling is fairly standard procedure."

"They have known their therapist for a long time and try to have weekly sessions just to keep communication open and make sure there are no misunderstandings."

The couple who got married in 2008 have been plagued by rumours of infidelity in recent months. The sessions are said to be about maintaining the happiness in their relationship for the sake of their two-year-old daughter.

The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's about maintenance rather than trying to fix anything hugely wrong. They are both happy and their daughter, Blue Ivy, remains their absolute priority."

The news comes just two months after Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles was seen attacking Jay in leaked security footage from an elevator as the trio made their way out of a Met Ball after-party in New York.

A statement was later released, saying: "At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."
