Beyonce and Jay Z, who are currently on their joint On The Run world tour, are reportedly separating once the 'royal spectacle' wraps up in Paris this December. According to reports, both of them have already removed their wedding rings.

A source told The New York Post's Page Six: "There are no rings, if you haven't noticed. They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing. This is a huge concert tour and they've already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front."

The source added that it will be their last event as a couple and marriage counsellors have failed to help them get their relationship back on track.

It is believed the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, thought that having their first child would bring them closer again, but they soon started to go their separate ways.

The source explained: "For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family. But, after a while, Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey."

They made the classic mistake of thinking a child would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire, and it didn't.

The news comes just two months after Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles was seen attacking Jay in a 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."
