Rap mogul Jay Z and his wife, singer Beyonce were escorted into the Barclay Center by a phalanx of bodyguards to attend game 4 of the NBA playoffs matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and the Miami Heat in Brooklyn, NYC last night. The Nets went down in flames to the Heat 102-96. During the game, NBA superstar LeBron James walked over to ask Jay Z if he was alright.
It's doubtful that Jay Z's mind was on the game. The power couple had a rough day on Monday after gossip tabloid TMZ published a video showing Beyonce's sister, Solange Knowles, stomping Jay Z in an elevator. Beyonce's bodyguard Julius was criticized by security experts for failing to protect Jay Z from Solange. Julius is seen in the video restraining Solange momentarily. But he inexplicably released the angry singer and turned his back on Jay Z while Solange continued to pummel the old man repeatedly. There is an unconfirmed report that President Barack Obama called Jay Z to offer the services of a Secret Service agent.
