Beyoncé’s loyal bodyguard, Julius, is more man than Jay Z

Rap mogul Jay Z accompanied his pregnant wife Beyoncé to the launch of her fragrance ‘Pulse’ at the Dream Downtown Hotel in New York City last night. When the couple left the hotel, Jay Z watched as another man (Bey’s loyal bodyguard, Julius) assisted the fragile Bey down the steps. In the photo below, Julius uses his entire body to protect Beyoncé, while Jay Z — her husband — barely extends a hand to help her.

What kind of man is Jay Z? Your wife is pregnant and you stand by lamely while another man assists her down some steps? I don’t care if Julius is paid to assist her. When your wife is pregnant with your child, your natural instinct, as a man, to protect her from harm should automatically kick in.

After looking at this picture, I have to ask: who is the real father of the baby Beyoncé is carrying? In every instance, Julius continues to prove that he is more of a man than Jay Z. When the baby is born, Julius will probably change the kid’s diapers and burp her too.

    @ EAST – that was the point I was gonna make. It would be fugged up if Julius, who is getting paid to do this chit, let Jay-Z do it, while collecting a check. My mate opens doors (cars & big doors) but if we’re vallet’n or there is a door man, I expect them to do that! JUST MY OPINION! :coffee:

Couldn’t keep me out of em either, I kept my belly ring in too, despite the Dr asking me to remove it every Drs appointment :lol:

    You can trip in flats just as easy as you can trip in heels. If you were a pro walking in heels before you were pregnant than there’s no need to stop wearing them just because you’re pregnant as long as you’re comfortable in them. It’s all about how comfortable you are in them.

    I guess I’m old fashioned. Cause IMO, I think its rather selfish to wear heels while preggers. ANYTHING can happen. And the safety of your baby should ALWAYS come first. I’m not judging anybody…cause to each its own.

    PLUS if the doctor tells you to chill on the heels, you should probably listen. He’s telling you that for a reason.

    Roc says:

    I wore heels until I was about 5-6 months pregnant. I was comfortable and it wasn’t an issue. Once I started feeling off-balance I took them off.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    That’s just the thing, all the doctor’s I asked about it said do what’s comfortable for you. If you don’t have a problem walking in heels, then there’s no need to cease it. Don’t know if it’s because of my high arch, but I do better in heels than flats. I trip way more in flats than heels. But pregnant or not, heels aren’t for everyone, I can run a marathon in them but others couldn’t make it out to the mailbox in them.

    She looks really pretty – IDK you have a point Sandra but then again Jay could be like he gets paid to do this… however Julius is very protective of his BEY and not only on a professional level :coffee:

    Did you see the youtube clip where Jay pushes her out the way from getting in the car on the passenger side and makes her go around to get in on the street side? Jay’s a loser. I agree with you Sandra. Julius may be security, but he’s not suppose to do everything. It is his job to protect people from getting at her. Jay could of at least helped her down the stairs.
