Beyonce & Jay-Z’s Age Gap Has Fans Concerned

Written by on January 28, 2023

Jay-Z and Beyoncé are one of Hollywood’s most powerful couples, with a combined net worth of nearly $2 billion.

Their relationship has been fodder from some of their most celebrated work, most notably Beyoncé’s “Lemonade,” and Queen Bey has been candid about the influence Jay-Z has had on her career.

But for some fans, their relationship just doesn’t sit right. Namely because, at it’s outset, Beyoncé was just barely out of her teens, while Jay-Z was in his 30s.

And a resurfaced clip of a younger Beyoncé gushing about Jay-Z at an awards show has reignited a conversation about whether she might have been groomed by the rapper in the early 2000s.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s 12-year age gap has struck some fans as inappropriate.

The couple met in 2000 when Beyoncé was 19 and Jay-Z was 31 and began dating in 2001.

Fans have been discussing this issue for years, but a recently resurfaced clip of Beyoncé at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards has brought it back to the fore.

The clip, taken from Beyoncé’s acceptance speech for the first annual Millennium Award following her performance of “Run the World (Girls),” shows the singer gushing about her husband.
