Jay-Z & Beyonce

Jet Down to Cuba to

Play ... Ball?

0405_beyone_jay_z_cuba_smoking_launchJay-Z and Beyonce celebrated their wedding anniversary with an opportunely timed trip to Cuba that raises some questions, like ... is this strictly for pleasure, or maybe a little business too?

B and 'Hova were photographed strolling all over Havana on Thursday ... their 5th anniversary.

Technically, US citizens are not supposed to travel to the communist nation from the states if it's purely for tourism ... though there are ways to skirt the travel ban.

For instance, travelers can obtain a "cultural exchange" license from the US government.

Also, remember Jay-Z just launched his own sports agency to represent athletes, like baseball players -- and anyone scouting baseball players knows Cuba is a gold mine.

It's not clear if baseball qualifies as "cultural exchange" -- or if Jay and Beyonce obtained a travel license.

Just a theory, but we gotta ask ...

It's funny how so many of you are apparently not fans of Beyonce or her husband yet you read the article and left comments of disgust. And to those making ignorant comments about her hair they're called braids and she wrapped them in a bun. And to the racist trolls who came just to spew hate get over it! There is color everywhere and it must bother you that someone of color doing better then you :/ find a hole and die in it.

They were invited by Cuba's tourism ministry. The complainers raising questions are old right wing exiles in Miami who praise the Cuban-American terrorists who bombed nightclubs and killed people in Cuba but we didn't get that news in the US.
