Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s age gap has fans worried

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

Their relationship has been the fodder of some of their most famous works, most notably Beyoncé’s “Lemonade,” and Queen Bey has been outspoken about Jay-Z’s influence on her career.

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

And a video of a younger Beyoncé gushing about Jay-Z at the awards ceremony has reignited a conversation about whether the rapper made it up in the early 2000s.

The 12-year age gap between Beyoncé and Jay-Z struck some fans as inappropriate.

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

Fans have been debating the issue for years, but a recent clip of Beyoncé at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards brought it back to the fore.

The clip, taken from Beyoncé’s speech receiving the first annual Millennium Award acceptance ceremony after her performance of “Run the World (Girls),” shows the singer gawking at her husband.
