Man alive, these Beyoncé -Jay Z divorce rumors have gone into hyper-drive of late. If you believe everything you read, Jay Z has has his dick in everyone from Mya to Rihanna, and then of course there’s all of this business that Josh helpfully compiled. Personally, while I usually take steadfast positions on this kind of celebrity gossip — I have no idea if any of this is true. Beyoncé and Jay Z have always been notoriously guarded with their privacy, and after the whole Met Gala elevator fight breached that privacy, it’s understandable that everyone has been sent into a frenzy.

So I also have no idea what to make of this latest news coming out of the New York Post, that Bey was caught “secretly” (not a secret anymore, I guess!) shopping for a $21.5 million Chelsea penthouse in early June. By herself! DIVORCE IMMINENT.

“She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly,” a source said.

Fueling the notion that Beyoncé is not shopping for both of them is the fact that Jay Z has always been extremely involved in their real estate deals, sources said. Yet he was nowhere to be seen during the apartment showing, they added.

Beyoncé and Jay Z are both like billionaire music royalty, so there could be any number of reasons why Beyoncé was looking at an apartment by herself. Maybe she was looking for an in-law suite or to turn it into an indoor playground for Blue Ivy or Jay Z had a last minute meeting or whatever. Or, you know, they’re totally getting divorced. All I know for sure is that there is pretty much nothing Beyoncé can do at this point that won’t be spun into a “split” headline. Beyoncé could run out to buy a carton of milk and the next day TMZ would be reporting: “CHEATING SCANDAL! MAID FIRED AFTER JAY Z AFFAIR, BEYONCE FORCED TO PURCHASE GROCERIES BY HERSELF!”*

OK that one might be true. We all know Beyoncé would never go grocery shopping by herself.
