The internet is abuzz with reports that Beyoncé and Jay Z are preparing to divorce after the rumor that the R&B singer had been cheating on her rapper husband emerged in the wake of the now-infamous post-Met Gala elevator fight. Sources have indicated to Star Magazine that the 'Halo' singer and Julius de Boer, her bodyguard, have been having a long-term affair and that Jay Z's suspicions were alerted long ago. We must make it clear that Star magazine don't exactly have a glowing record of accurate exclusives. 

"Jay definitely thinks that there was and may still be something romantic going on between Bey and Julius," a source told the publication. "He wanted to fire Julius last February, but Beyoncé said, 'Julius isn't going anywhere.'"

"They've spent a lot of time together behind closed doors," the insider continued. "He's even stayed in her hotel room." Rumors of a secret relationship between Bey and Julius first arose back in 2009 when the pair were snapped leaving a hotel in Berlin. In the photo Beyoncé's mouth is strangely covered by her hand whilst Julius mouth is allegedly covered in red lipstick.

Boer, who was in the elevator when Solange Knowles physically attacked brother-in-law Jay Z after the Met gala, is reportedly of Dutch descent and is divorced with a four year-old daughter. The rumors seem to have prompted the high profile pair to change their bodyguard as of the 31st May.

Additionally, observers have also noticed that Beyoncé's "IV" tattoo, which denoted her own and Jay's birthday and their wedding date, on her hand has been fading recently and could be in the process of being removed. "To the public, Beyonce and Jay Z appear to have it all. But behind closed doors, they're not as happy as people think they are," a source said to be close to Jay Z told Radar Online.

The insider added: "Jay's been telling his friends that Beyonce is getting her ring tattoo removed, the one they got when they were married. He just sorta shrugs it off though saying 'Nothing is forever.'"

Jay Z and Beyoncé are currently gearing up for their joint 'On The Run' world tour and neither have publically commented on the reports.
