After a full-blown Instagram ambush from Beyoncé's devout BeyHivers, Nicole Curran (wife of the Warriors owner) now can fully explain that viral video of her reaching over their queen to speak to Mr. Carter.
In a new comment, Curran explained that as a married woman, she not only respects Mrs. Carter, but only spoke twice to Hov during the three's courtside time spent together at Game 3 of the Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors NBA Playoffs game. "I talked to her husband twice tonight," she said. "First, to take a drink order for them both when they arrived as they were our guests. Second, to explain why I gave his wife a rose from a fan."
She continued explaining that the entire ordeal was totally blown out of proportion. "I am a happily married woman," she clarified. "Telling me to kill myself????? Somehow, I don't think she would support this."
Mrs. Curran has since left the statement at that, but kept her Instagram account private. See her full sentiment below:
Nicole Curran, or another “Becky with the good hair” as furious BeyHivers have dubbed her, quickly caught the sting of avid Beyoncé’ stans after a viral video showing a peculiar exchange with the Queen Bey and Jay-Z went viral on Wednesday night (June 6).
In the clip, the wife of the Golden State Warriors owner is seen speaking to Hov as Bey is seated between them. Rather awkwardly, BeyHivers noticed, Curran is also leaned a tad bit too close into Bey's personal space to speak to him, however. That was all fans needed (along with Bey's facial expressions) to go into a full-blown sting war against Curran, whose comment section on Instagram quickly overflowed with bee emojis and infuriated fans sending her warnings about personal space in the presence of the Queen Bey.
Amid the uproar, however, Curan responded with a new photo from footage of her time kicking it courtside next to Bey, along with a message that she likely hopes will keep the stings at bay. "We should all help and support each other," she posted on Instagram. In the picture, Curran is directly speaking to a smiling Bey.
That doesn't mean the rest of the BeyHive is smiling with her, however.
