AceShowbiz - Beyonce Knowles is giving her online devotees a sweet treat. When celebrating Jay-Z's 52nd birthday, the "Crazy in Love" hitmaker took to social media to unleash several PDA-filled pictures of her and the hip-hop mogul.
The R&B star shared the photos in question on her Instagram account on Tuesday, December 7. In one of the snaps, the couple was seen making a Roc-A-Fella diamond hand symbol. Another image, meanwhile, saw the rapper smiling in front of his birthday cake.
Beyonce also included one black-and-white short clip that showcased photo compilation of her and Jay-Z. In it, the "Halo" songstress and the "Holy Grail" spitter could be seen cozying up to one another while sharing a sweet smooch.
In the photos, the former Destiny's Child member was seen rocking a crystal adorned Gucci x Balenciaga coat which cost $13,000. She completed her look with a silver crystal heart clutch by Gucci and tiny sunglasses. The rapper, on the other hand, kept it simple in a black leather jacket over black T-shirt, jeans, white sneakers and a black beanie.
Many have since gushed over the two. One Instagram user in particular raved, "king and queen of them all." Another marveled, "DAMN BEYONCE AND JAY Z YOU KILLEM GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND." A third individual simply commented, "Power couple."
The post arrived more than three months after Beyonce and Jay-Z came under fire over their Tiffany Diamond campaign, in which she modeled a 128.54-carat yellow gem. The diamond itself was discovered in 1877 in Kimberley, South Africa, where black laborers were forced to work under British colonial rule.
While Beyonce did not publicly react to the backlash, she was reportedly "aware of the criticism and is disappointed and angry that she wasn't made aware of questions about its history." A source additionally told The Sun, "She thought that every final detail had been vetted, but now she realises that the diamond itself was overlooked."
