An explosive new book claims that Rihanna once separated Beyoncé and Jay Z for a year.
It was as a result of rumors that the rapper was having an affair with Rihanna, the new book, an unauthorised biography of Beyonce claims.
According to Daily mail, the power couple, who just had a Mediterranean cruise in a yacht owned by a Nigerian oil tycoon, Kola Aluko, started dating in 2000.
They allegedly split around the time Jay Z scouted then-17-year-old Rihanna in 2005 and managed the launch of her debut single Pon De Replay.
And though the rumors were supposedly spread by PRs to boost Rihanna’s profile, Beyoncé ‘wasn’t sure what to make of the situation’.
The astonishing claim comes in a new unauthorized biography by best-selling writer J Randy Taraborrelli titled Becoming Beyoncé: The Untold Story.
