Beyonce & Jay Z Shutdown Divorce Rumors At 2014 MTV Video Music Awards

Rumors have been swirling for months that power couple Beyoncé and Jay Z have hit the rocks during their On the Run Tour and are headed for a split. But Jay and Bey put those suspicions to bed (in a not-particularly-subtle way) at the MTV Video Music Awards, when the rapper and the couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy, presented mom Beyoncé with her lifetime achievement awards.

Jay Z and Blue Ivy watched Beyoncé perform songs from her latest album before taking the stage to honor her.  Then Beyoncé cried as she took her award from her husband and her young daughter. The two locked lips, dispelling any notion that there’s trouble in paradisea show of marital bliss for all the world to see.

“I have nothing to say, but I’m filled with so much gratitude,” Beyoncé said. “I thank God for this moment. I love y’all so much. Blue Blue, I love you. My beloved, I love you. My fans, I love you. MTV, I love you. Goodnight.”

Operation shutdown complete. Well played, Jay and Bey. Well played.
