The songstress reportedly pulled out at the last minute.
Beyonce was due to attend last night’s Met Gala, but pulled out after Jay-Z reportedly booked her a holiday.
The rapper felt that his superstar wife was due a break, following her acclaimed Coachella performance and ahead of the duo’s forthcoming international tour.
“Jay-Z surprised her with trip because he felt she needed to relax before her tour,” a source told Entertainment Tonight, adding that Beyoncé was planning on wearing a custom-made Peter Dundas dress. He had reportedly been working on the look for weeks before the singer cancelled.
Beyoncé is a Met Gala Stalwart, consistently impressing with her bold red carpet looks. However, her famous Met appearance came in 2014 when sister Solange was caught kicking and shouting at Jay-Z in a lift at the event while her big sister looked on.
The family later released a statement not long after stating that “both acknowledged their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.”
Solange represented the Knowles clan last night, wearing an Iris van Herpen look and eye catching halo after asking Twitter users to help choose what to wear.
