Beyonce sparked speculations when she was pictured with a faded Jay Z tattoo on her finger last Saturday during a basketball game. Many fans have been speculating about the cause of the altercation between Solange and Jay Z. The removal of the tattoo, which signifies her and Jay Z's birthday and wedding date, can be construed as a signal that there might be marital tension between her and Jay Z.
Jay Z and Beyonce Knowles arrive at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala Benefit celebrating the opening of "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" in Upper Manhattan, New York, May 5, 2014.
The "IV" tattoo was inked based on the couple's birth dates, specifically Dec. 4 for Jay Z and Sept. 4 for Bey. The "IV" tat also stands for the couple's wedding date, which coincidentally falls on April 4. Given the significance of the tattoo, having it removed might seem like a strong statement by Beyonce in regards to the alleged marital strife she is experiencing with Jay Z.
Another curious incident that has led to the speculations of fans about the situation between the "Drunk in Love" singers is Beyonce's Tumblr post that showed her finger covered in a plaster.
Beyonce and Jay Z have yet to comment about the 3-minute elevator altercation that involved Beyonce's younger sister Solange.
Meanwhile, Beyonce recently posted a snap featuring herself and Solange during better days. After the MET Gala brawl, Beyonce posted a cryptic prayer in her account which read "Lord, I lift up every one of my relationships to You and ask You to bless them. I pray that each one would be glorifying to You. Help me to choose my friends wisely so I won't be led astray. Give me discernment and strength to separate myself from anyone who is not a good influence. I release all my relationships to You and pray that Your will be done in each one of them."
However, for the two "Drunk In Love" singers, the show must go on.
Jay & Bey will hit the road on an 18-date summer tour together, with Miami as their first location. The tour is titled "On the Run" and shall be kicked off on June 25 at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami.
