Mary J. Blige sent her congratulation to the apparent newlyweds Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles at the Greensboro, North Carolina stop of her "Heart of the City Tour" on Saturday night, April 5.
No mention of a marriage had been made just yet by either Jay-Z or Beyonce Knowles despite heavy media coverage on their supposed wedding. Should the couple are really married, it seems the only person willing to make it public is Mary J. Blige who sent her congratulation to both music stars publicly.
Multiple news media and sources say that the celebrity couple married at Jay-Z's New York apartment on Friday, April 4. And while there has been no official word, Blige wasn't quite so tight-lipped, sent her congratulation at the Greensboro, North Carolina stop of her "Heart of the City Tour" on Saturday night, April 5.
"Congratulations to my man, Jay-Z, and my girl B," Blige shouted to the sold-out audience before then starting her set with "You're All I Need."
Jay-Z, who was due to perform with Blige as part of the "Heart of the City Tour", flew in from New Jersey's Teterboro airport earlier in the day. He was not wearing a wedding ring. His only reference to Beyonce came when he played a few notes of "Crazy in Love" before abruptly stopping the song by saying, "Sorry, B," just like what he's been doing at shows throughout the tour.
As for Beyonce, she reportedly was nowhere to be seen at the show. OK! Magazine, in fact, claimed that a source told them Beyonce did accompany Jay-Z on the flight.
Jay-Z's tour with Blige continued Sunday night, April 6 in Washington, D.C., and is scheduled to continue through May 7. Beyonce is set to be back at work, filming her next big screen project, the Etta James biopic "Cadillac Records".
