Why Didn’t Jay Z Accompany Beyoncé to the 2016 Met Gala?
Dozens of stars turned out in their best “Manus vs. Machina” fashion for the 2016 Metropolitan gala.
Among the celebs gracing the red carpet in futuristic-inspired gear was Beyoncé, decked in a stunning latex Givenchy ensemble adorned with pearls (or Becky with the good hair’s teeth).
The only thing missing from the singer’s completed look? Her husband, Jay Z!
This year, the Lemonade vocalist went solo to the gala, which had many wondering if there was actual trouble in paradise for the pair. However, it turns out the 46-year-old didn’t want to attend the gala because, well, he’d done it already.
A source close to the music mogul told Us Weekly Jay’s absence at the annual soiree had nothing to do with his love life — which may have been the inspiration behind the Texan’s latest album — and all to do with the “99 Problems” rapper simply losing interest in the event.
"He's done it before,” the insider explained. “There's just no big reason for him to go.”
Bey, on the other hand, made it a point to show up and close out the red carpet before heading inside to have fun with several other remarkably dressed people including Odell Beckham Jr., La La Anthony, and even Nicki Minaj.
We can totally imagine the emcee had a ball too — back at home with the couple’s 4-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy!
