Post Source Gurgles Up More Beyoncé-Jay Z Claims

ShutterstockBeyonceJayZ2004OscarsVulture recently asked: “Who is the Post‘s Jay Z-Beyoncé Source?” The website ran through a brief list of possibilities and invited readers to chime in via the comments with their theories on who is spilling the beans about the couple’s alleged marital problems.

Over the weekend, that source (or source(s)) was at it again. They suggested to Page Six that the pair’s “On the Run” tour – in San Francisco this week after weekend stops in LA – may not make it to Paris. The Post tattler also had this very forward-looking media tidbit:

“They’ve had discussions lately about the inevitable sit-down interview when they finally do split, and Jay’s been adamant that he doesn’t want Beyoncé sitting down with Barbara Walters or Oprah Winfrey pretending to be the victim,” the source said.

Somehow, we don’t think Beyoncé would ever choose to present herself as “the victim.” And were this to all go down as the source claims, FishbowlNY would prefer as a forum Charlie Rose; for the full hour.
