Jay Z and Beyoncé have everyone talking about the state of their marriage these days, but only a handful of people know what's really going on behind closed doors. One of them appears to be her cousin Shanica Knowles. Now, Shanica is giving us a few clues as to where Bey's head is at.
“[Beyoncé has] admitted that she still may end up divorcing him. It’s up to Jay to continue fighting for her and prove that he’s determined to do whatever it takes to keep his wife,” Shanica recently told Britain's Heat magazine, adding that the icon has "been encouraged to write about the affair rumors to help her deal with it all and help her determine whether she could work through everything or had to end the marriage."
“This has been a long process and I’ve heard they’ve had to deal with silent separations and splits over the past few years,” she adds, “but Beyoncé is praying that this album will actually save their marriage. The next few months are going to be the test – this is now make or break for them, but Bey’s determined to do everything she can to make it work.”
Now, of course we've heard all this before — right around the time that the couple was embarking on their On the Run Tour, in fact — but where there's smoke, there has to be at least a little fire, right? We're not holding our breath for Bey to whip out divorce papers, but something clearly went down between these two.
