Jay Z & Beyonce We Run This Town! Insane Crowd Proves It

2/13/2015 6:55 AM PST
You Gotta See This!

Either Beyonce and Jay Z need to stop going out in public, or NYC needs way more cops for NBA All-Star Weekend -- 'cause they damn near started a riot Thursday night just by stepping out of their SUV.

The scene in this video is ridiculous ... the massive crowd rushes the barricades in unison when Jay and Bey's ride pulls up outside Jay's 40/40 Club. Then, maybe to avoid even more chaos -- they walk in separately.

So, who was the opening act, and who headlined? Watch the vid to find out, but there's no doubt ... they're the reigning king and queen of NY.

Makes ya wonder why the hell they're moving to LA, right? 

Beyonce and Jay Z We're Movin' to L.A.!

EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce and Jay Z are moving to L.A. and they've already enrolled Blue Ivy in school ... TMZ has learned.

We've learned ... Beyonce and Jay Z are currently living in a hotel in Beverly Hills and actively looking for an estate to buy on the westside of L.A., which includes Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills and Bel-Air. We're told they have already discreetly looked at a number of homes, but so far none fit the bill.

We've also learned the famous couple enrolled their 3-year-old into a toddler program at an elite private school -- we know which one but we're not naming it. But we will tell you, the tuition is $15,080 a year.

We're told Blue Ivy was admitted halfway through the school year, which is unusual. The school generally only accepts students at the beginning of the school year.

As for why they're moving, sources connected with the couple tell us they want "a change in lifestyle." You'll recall, Bey and Jay spent the summer in a $200K a month rental near Bev Hills.

We do not know but assume they will keep their New York digs.

Jay Z and Beyonce have scratched plans to get a wildly expensive pad in L.A. ... after losing out to an incredibly rich nerd in a ferocious bidding war.

TMZ broke the story ... Jay and Bey put an offer in on a sick Beverly Hills mansion ... we're told just shy of $70 mil. At the time we were told they were only several million off from sealing the deal. But former Minecraft mastermind Markus Persson swooped in and sealed the deal for $70M.

Mr. and Mrs. Z have told close friends in L.A. they really wanted that house and it's soured them on looking further. They looked before eyeing the property and found nothing they really liked.

So for now ... they're putting L.A. on ice.

In what seems like a scouting trip for a possible Solange Knowles career change, Jay Z and Beyonce took in a Muay Thai fight during their vacation in Thailand. 

It all went down at Patong Boxing Stadium in Phuket. There were kicks. There were punches. There was Beyonce sitting ringside while the violence unfolded ... all in a space that was roughly the size of an NYC elevator.

Solange Knowles Nailed By Taxman Days After Marriage

12/28/2014 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE



8:00 AM PT -- A rep for Solange tells TMZ ... "The lien is in process of being removed as there was simply confusion on whether Solange was a California resident. We expect this to come to a swift close."



While Beyonce shops for $70 million homes, her sister Solange is getting dogged by the taxman almost immediately after she got hitched.

Solange needs to settle up with the State of California, which claims she owes more than $55,000 in taxes for 2010-12.  

And to add insult to injury ... the tax lien was filed 3 days after Solange tied the knot.

Meanwhile, back at the homestead, Mathew Knowles is having a marathon garage sale where he's hawking Solange's CDs for $1.96. A Beyonce poster is going for $200.

Life ... it isn't always fair.

Beyonce, Jay Z Sued Singer Says They're Money Hungary Over 'Drunk in Love'

12/15/2014 10:20 AM PST


Beyonce and Jay Z ripped off a singer from a far away land to make one of their biggest songs ever ... so claims the outraged Hungarian woman who wants "Drunk in Love" put on the shelf for good.

Monika Miczura, aka Mitsou, says Bey, Jay and producer Timbaland pilfered a Roma folk song she recorded in 1995, then used it for the first 13 seconds of the hit song.

Mitsou says she never gave them permission, but even worse, her song is about hopelessness yet Beyonce used it "to evoke foreign eroticism alongside the sexually intense lyrics." 

Mitsou says the 3 amigos bastardized her song -- "Bajba, Bajba Pelem" -- by digitally manipulating her voice with Auto-Tune and various cuts.

She wants damages and is also asking a judge to prohibit anyone from playing the song as long as it has her voice.
