Jay Z and Beyonce are reportedly going to separate after their joint On The Run Tour.

The couple, who have been dogged by split rumours for months, are said to be planning a trial separation but do not want to go ahead with a divorce.

A source told The New York Post’s Page Six: “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. There are no rings, if you haven’t noticed.”


The married couple are putting on a united front

It is believed the couple – who have a two-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy – thought having their first child would bring them closer together but they soon drifted apart again and couldn’t bring back the original spark.

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 tour is believed to be the last for Jay Z, 44, and Beyonce, 32, after marriage counsellors failed to help them get their relationship back on track during recent weeks.

It comes just two months after Beyonce’s sister, Solange Knowles, was seen on leaked CCTV footage attacking rapper Jay Z in a lift after the Met Ball after-party.

The couple have been putting on a united front during their tour and have been seen looking loved-up on stage, despite the rumours.
