The rapper was hosting a gig in support of US presidential candidate Barrack Obama but when the crowd started grooving to Beyonce's hit song he reportedly grabbed the mike and shouted: "F*** that. Sorry Bey but f*** that let's play something else." This enraged Beyonce, who immediately stalked off, according to sources.
"Beyonce had been side stage for most of the night, dancing and singing along," says a fellow reveller. But when Jay-Z got the song pulled, her mood soured. He meant it as a joke, but Beyonce didn't take it that way," the Mirror quoted a source, as saying.
"After he came off stage, she confronted him, demanding to know what the hell his comments had been about. She was gesturing wildly and not looking happy. Like any good husband would, Jay-Z grovelled and tried to get out of it with compliments.
"It's a shame because earlier the pair had been flashing their tattooed wedding ring fingers. Both have 'IV' the date of their wedding' inked on. "Later peace was restored and they were smiling and holding hands again," the source added.
