Celebs Out & About: Jay Z, Skylar Diggins

Jay Z and Skylar Diggins at 40 40 Club

Does Beyonce know about this bish? While Beyonce is busy touring and earning money to support her daughter, her husband, aging rapper Jay Z is busy entertaining a youngster who could be his daughter. Jay Z partied with WNBA player Skylar Diggins at his 40/40 Sports Club in NYC on Thursday, May 30. As you know, Jay Z gifted Skylar with a $35K Mercedes Benz last week. This is exactly how Jay Z wooed a young Beyonce. Rumor has it that Jay Z likes them young.

    Real talk, I was 19 and in the Army….it was me and another dudes first day in Germany and since the drinking limit was lower, we went to this bar downtown and got WASTED. Last I remember was drinking shots that they set on fire and you had to suck thru a straw before it melted. I woke up on a pallet with cover on me and he was on another side of the room.

    These German chicks took us home and pretty much helped us out.

    Real talk, I was 19 and in the Army….it was me and another dudes first day in Germany and since the drinking limit was lower, we went to this bar downtown and got WASTED. Last I remember was drinking shots that they set on fire and you had to suck thru a straw before it melted. I woke up on a pallet with cover on me and he was on another side of the room.

    These German chicks took us home and pretty much helped us out.

    Acknowledging that I dont believe Michelle nor Beyonce shares their man, I could NOT do that with someone I genuinely loved. I would be broke, friendless, and blind for the one I truly love, but I wont share him with another. :nono:

    Now for a nigga with a lot of change and thangs, :yes: and I dont truly love him, *files nails* Imma buy a new everythang, every year.

    :thumbsup: i concur
