Beyonce's publicist asks Beehive to stop 'spewing hate' at Warriors' owner's wife after clip of her talking to Jay-Z goes viral
Nicole Curran received death threats from Beyonce's fans who believe that she was being 'shaded' by the singer. She has now revealed the truth about the situation.
After the backlash Nicole Curran, wife of Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob received on social media after a clip of her chatting with Jay-Z, with Beyonce sitting in between them went viral, she had to deactivate her Instagram account. Curran received death threats from Beyonce's fans who believe that she was being "shaded" by the singer. She has now revealed the truth about the situation.
She told ESPN reporter Ramona Shelburne that she didn't even know that there was an issue until she checked her social media. She said that the interaction, where she's seen leaning over Bey as she spoke to her husband was absolutely harmless and that Jay-Z had actually asked her for a vodka soda and she wanted to know if he wanted some lime with it. Because the surroundings were so loud, she couldn't hear it and so had to lean in closer. The clip showed Beyonce's smile turning into a frown quickly and she looked "ice cold" according to her fans.
"There was no hostility. I was trying to be a good hostess,” she said. “I’ve never experienced cyberbullying like this. I can’t believe our players go through this. That kids go through this." She also told the reporter that she had invited the power couple to games before and that there was nothing out of the ordinary with this one.
Jay-Z and Beyonce have not responded to the situation, but Beyonce's publicist Yvette Noel-Schure took to Instagram on Thursday to ask the Beehive to calm down over the Nicole Curran controversy. "I am looking back today at the start of The OTRII tour, one year ago. It was a place of joy, unimaginable entertainment from two of the best performers in the world, and a place of love,” she captioned an Instagram photo of Beyoncé, 37, and JAY-Z, 39, from their tour.
“Every single day on that tour I saw love. Which is why I also want to speak here to the beautiful BeyHive. I know your love runs deep but that love has to be given to every human. It will bring no joy to the person you love so much if you spew hate in her name. We love you," she wrote.
As MEA World Wide had previously reported, sitting in between Jay-Z and Curran, Beyonce was seen getting increasingly frustrated as her husband enjoyed a conversation with Lacob's wife. The star couldn't seem to hold back her aggravation despite doing her best to smile and wave at onlookers. Instead, she is seen desperately waiting for the pair to conclude their conversation before shoving Nicole slightly at the end of the clip.
Beyonce's fans stormed to Twitter right after the tabloid moment made rounds of the internet. Many of the reactions defending Beyonce were markedly creative and hilarious.
"I would leave the earth if Beyonce looked this ready to smack me," commented a fan on the video.
"Who’s the b**** annoying Beyoncé?!", "Beyonce is about to kill this woman." and "Can you imagine sitting next to Beyoncé.. and not trying to talk to BEYONCÉ instead?" were some of the other comments.
