Photographers at the star-studded Kobe Bryant memorial service in Los Angeles were reportedly banned from taking pictures of Beyonce Knowles-Carter.

20,000 fans and hordes of stars flocked to the Staples Center for the live-streamed memorial to basketball legend Kobe, 41, and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant, who were killed along with seven others in a helicopter crash last month.

Beyonce, 39, opened the memorial with stirring performances of her hit songs "XO" and "Halo," which Kobe's wife Vanessa Bryant says were among his favorite tunes.

But photographers from the Associated Press and Getty Images told the New York Post that organizers of the event banned them from taking pictures of the singer or Kobe's children.

"A Staples Center staffer was dispatched to make sure not a single camera was focused on the stage," a source told gossip column Page Six.

"The photographers couldn't believe it. This doesn't help Beyonce's image at all, it hurts her. It makes her look like a diva. The memorial wasn't about her. The only shots of Bey that did emerge were screen grabs from TV. None of the other artists at the memorial asked for this, not Christina Aguilera, not Alicia Keys."

Representatives for the semi-retired cabana singer have yet to respond to the claims.

It's widely known that the mother-of-three only releases pictures she approves of, taken at certain at angles, and Photoshopped to perfection by an official photographer after the Internet made a mockery of her 2013 Super Bowl performance when news outlets publishing "unflattering" images of her.

Beyonce's team is very unhappy that the burlesque dancer's Homecoming documentary was shut out of the Emmy Awards after earning 6 Emmy nominations.

Beyonce failed to take home a single trophy at the Creative Arts Emmys over the weekend.

Her rabid fanbase, who call themselves "the BeyHive," took to social media to vent their frustration over their idol's Emmy shut out.

It was their typical immature public meltdown whenever they don't get their way. But the behavior of Beyonce's own management team and publicist really raised eyebrows.

Beyonce's longtime publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure posted an Instagram video that shows her, Bey's manager Steve Pamon and other staffers flipping the bird to the Emmy Creative Arts organizers.

Many say Beyonce's team showed a lack of class, and they should know better than to antagonize Hollywood bigwigs who all know each other.
