They have been dogged by split rumours for several months and now a source close to Beyonce and Jay Z has confirmed their marriage is "crumbling".
The insider said that recent reports about the celebrity duo's marriage being in trouble were true and they had more of a business than a romantic relationship.
"Knowing them as I do, obviously there's a little something to certain reports," the friend told a US publication.
"When your man or your woman isn't getting it done for you, and I'm talking emotionally, not necessarily sexually . . . they keep things quiet."
Another insider claims the business relationship between Beyonce and Jay is more important to them than their marriage.
"There's still something there, even though it's not going to last," the source said.
"Business is always part of the equation. They know they're the king and queen of hip-hop - and really, all of music. Neither wants to lose that. They are solid, solid businesspeople who know what they're doing."
The report also claimed the couple were having marriage therapy while on their joint On The Run tour.
The singers' tour is predicted to gross more than $100 million, skyrocketing their fortune to almost $1 billion, according to International Business Times.
Forbes recently ranked Beyonce as the world's most powerful celebrity of 2014, while Jay Z came in sixth place.
