AceShowbiz - Beyonce Knowles has returned home with her family following her controversial Dubai show. The former Destiny's Child member and her husband Jay-Z touched down at the Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles on Thursday, January 26.
Bey appeared to try to go incognito, wearing a black zip-up sweater and matching black sweatpants when exiting the plane. She had her hood pulled over her blonde tresses and appeared to be wearing a face mask.
Her rapper husband also opted for comfort in a black hoodie and a blue tie-dye bucket hat. The pair flew in with their kids in tow. Their 5-year-old son Sir wore a green hoodie, while his twin sister Rumi was seen sporting a pink jacket, blue leggings and pink Ugg boots as she stepped down the stairs.
Beyonce was joined by her family, including her eldest daughter Blue Ivy Carter, and her parents, Matthew Knowles and Tina Lawson, during her performance at the Atlantis The Royal hotel's opening on Saturday, January 21.
She brought along her daughter Blue Ivy onstage to perform their collaboration "Brown Skin Girl" and belted out a cover of Etta James' "At Last" before delivering rendition of some of her hits, including "Beautiful Liar", "Halo" and "Crazy in Love". It marked her first live show in almost five years.
While many were raving over her performance, Bey also received backlash for performing in a country, United Arab Emirates, with horrible anti-LGBTQIA+ laws. Coming to her defense, Ts Madison said to TMZ, "Beyonce is a superstar. People go to Dubai for many different reasons, and a lot of LGBTQIA people go to Dubai for a lot of those reasons." She added, "You know, Beyonce went there for some of those same reasons. She went there to make her money."
The trans actress insisted that Beyonce has always supported the community. "Everybody that loves Beyonce and everybody that knows Beyonce knows that Beyonce loves the community," she claimed. "And not just loves the community. She dedicated an entire album which is, like, the album of the year to her fans, to the people that she loved. So, I personally saw it as: she went and got her bag."
She went on claiming that people would do the same if they're offered a huge paycheck, "But tell me, I wanna ask any one of those folks over there if there were given $24 million- I heard it was $35 million. That's what I heard."
Meanwhile, Bey's father Matthew told the same outlet that the "Lemonade" singer's show in the Middle East country "united a really diverse crowd" and brought people together. The 71-year-old insisted that his daughter has "always stood for inclusiveness" and would never do anything to "deliberately hurt someone."
