A new unauthorised biography by best-selling author J Randy Taraborrelli, "Becoming Beyonce: The Untold Story", claims Bey and Jay Z split for a year around 2005 due to a rumoured affair between him and his protege, Rihanna.
The alleged affair is said to have been concocted by PRs to launch RiRi further into the limelight after the release of her debut single, "Pon De Replay." Taraborrelli told Entertainment Tonight that "Beyonce didn't know what to make of this, and it actually ended up breaking them up for a time."
In yesterday's interview, Taraborrelli also claims that now "It's safe to say that Rihanna and Beyonce are friends." However, sources close to the couple have confided in Taraborrelli that Bey did in fact warn her husband he was not allowed to attend RiRi's Met Gala afterparty earlier this year.
Was the infamous elevator spat between Jay Z and Bey's little sis Solange Knowles related this his rumoured affair with Rihanna? We can only guess...
