Beyoncé Biographer Claims To Have The Tea On SolangeGate

July 30, 2015  |  

I consider myself to be a pretty nosy person, but I have a list of questions that I have settled on never knowing the answers to. That list includes the nitty-gritty details of that elevator fight that went down between Solange and Jay Z last year. However, New York Times Best-Selling author J. Randy Taraborrelli claims to have the tea on that infamous showdown, which he intends to spill in his new unauthorized biography, Becoming Beyoncé.

Last fall, we briefly mentioned Taraborrelli’s book, which he says is “based on exhaustive research” that includes “exclusive interviews with the people in the superstar’s life who have been pivotal to her personal and professional development.” Among those pivotal players who contributed to Taraborrelli’s book is former Destiny’s Child manager Brian Moore, who dished on DC’s early days in an exclusive interview with Madame Noire earlier this year.

Grand Central Publishing boasts that the biography will highlight many of the “firsts” in Bey’s career while also delving into her personal life. Provided below are just a few of the questions Taraborelli and GCP publishers believe that the book will answer.

Beyoncé’s 1st boyfriend of 10 years and what happened to him.

How many boyfriends she really had.

Why Jay Z & Beyoncé’s story is indeed a love story through and through – one that has never really been told.

How did Rihanna come between Beyoncé and Jay Z?

Beyoncé’s relationship with her father before and after she fired him and why she fired him.

Why she really created Sasha Fierce.

What really happened in the elevator between Jay Z and Beyoncé’s sister Solange?

Becoming Beyoncé is slated to hit shelves October 27, 2015.

Considering how hard Bey and her team work to keep a tight rein on her personal affairs, it will be interesting to see what will be revealed in this new bio.

Will you be adding Becoming Beyoncé to your fall reading list?

    NO because Beyoncé is in control of her life and anything & everything the author of that book puts in it will be information already known to the public and based off assumptions only. Thats nothing new. Word of advice to anyone who is thinking about taking out time and money for that book.. dont bother wasting your time.. all of the info we really want to know is only known by Beyoncé Jay Z Solange themselves & a few other people. But if you people still choose to waste time and money on this book well enjoy Lol

  • what?why

    Why do people care if Beyonce carried her child or not – damn, no one’s business. The important factor is that the child is healthy, Beyonce & Jay appear to be exemplary parents and they are a family.

  • KillerBeyHive

    How did Rihanna came between Beyoncé and Jayz… Really? Did MTO wrote this sh*t? I’ll pass.

  • beymi canter

    Unless it comes directly out of her mouth I won’t believe it.

  • Truthbetold

    Isn`nt this the same guy who tried to ruin Michael Jackson.I would not buy anything from this maggot who earns a living putting out garbage on Black people and any one else.I do not trust him.He needs to expose himself.Go and do something true and meaningful in life besides hanging around alleys and gutters.

  • dirtychai

    In all nosiness, I want to know what happened in that elevator too.
    Also, why don’t people believe Beyonce carried her child? I see the comments about it all the time, but I’ve never known why they exist.

      “Also, why don’t people believe Beyonce carried her child? I see the comments about it all the time, but I’ve never known why they exist.”–Because it’s a good conspiracy theory. Some people need to believe stuff like that in their life. She’s at the top right now, so this type of stuff comes with the territory. Just look at Michael Jackson’s career to see all the crazy stuff they said about him.

    • It’s mainly because of the interview she did with Diane Sawyer. When Bey went to sit down her belly deflated a lil bit

      • Cleopatra

        The interview was with an Australian news outlet

  • Music

    I never understood how some people feel they have the right to write about another person’s life, without their permission. You’re THAT desperate for a coin that you’ll create a book based on he said/she said?!?! He’s interviewing OLD managers, and people who are no longer associated with Beyonce.

    • Cleopatra

      your comment is dumb

      • Music

        Says the person who eliminated all punctuation in their “so called” sentence. Cleo, go back to stealing people’s money with your fake psychic abilities.

        • Cakes253

          Lmao!

  • Girliusmaximus

    So I’mma get the book for free…. ( I gotta guy who knows a guy) Then I’ll come back and write an article on MN for everybody about the book aite? We cool everyone? Stay tuned, I’ll let yall know when to bust out the popcorn.

  • slimpickens2916

    I only read autobiographies, not hatchet jobs done by unreliable sources!

    • Amarossa

      autobiographies have lies too. don’t fool yourself hun.

      • slimpickens2916

        I would rather hear from the actual person telling the story of their own life. I would be able to determine their truth based on what they say. I am not interested in hearing third and fourth persons opinions on some one else’s life. In addition, we all embellish or remember the way we wish things happened or should have happened.

        • J Hariss

          very intelligent smart lady

  • Sydney

    I can tell this book is already based on lies if he thinks beyonce was with her bf for 10 years. Her ex and her both said it was 6-7 years, not 10. What kind of research was that? Lol it was easy to find out the truth. Maybe this site just reported it wrong but it’s funny.

  • septbeauty

    I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!

  • Gigi

    Nah, I won’t read it. I’ll wait for Madame Noire to share the juicy excerpts.

  • LuvMyBrownskin

    This book is going to make Beyonce look like she carried Blue. Trust and Believe that she approved it everything in it after several months of reading and editing it.

    • OctoberLibra1 .

      J. Tab normally doesn’t get paid off with bribes or allows an entertainers star status stop him from writing what he’s gathered. I would not buy the book because I already have a discernment about Ms. Knowles and how she faked that pregnancy, how she lied about writing her own songs and the business marriage between she and Jay-Z. Plus I don’t care for her, I think she’s a narcissistic, self-absorbed, opportunistic liar. And the way she treated the other girls of Destinys child, along with J-Hud during Dreamgirls and not to mention what she did recently to R&B singer Ledisi, I have no respect for beYAWNcy.

      • Sydney

        You obviously believe the gossip and everything written on blogs since you believe a lot of those things lol any Celeb will look bad if you believe everything written about them and you saying those things proves you do. She didn’t do anything to Ledisi and J. Hud. J. Hud and beyonce are actually friends and Ledisi was never going to perform regardless. They wanted beyonce to perform not Ledisi. But you obviously hate her so it doesn’t matter lol

      • Clapback central

        Yes to errthang

      • sha

        I really want to know exactly how do yall think we saw pictures of her pregnant – bare belly pregnant in a 2 piece on more than one occasion and it was faked. OH I forgot, the Illuminati, right! Why would she need to fake a pregnancy! Why cant our sisters give props to our sisters? Actually, I am not a Beyonce fan but as music careers go, hers has been impecable and carefully constructed. While I dont care for all of her music she does have a voice with body and face to match. What has she done so wrong that everyone, even her own are awaiting baited breath for her demise. WE are so sad! But will be ready to throw up the hashtags, #blacklivesmatter #sayhername. Its all relative people. We dont respect each other – NO ONE EVER WILL!

        • Guestest

          Oh please don’t bring up that lets stick together because we are black crap. Just because i may share the same skin tone as another person doesn’t mean that i have to believe everything they say and agree with their actions.

          • _a_

            Right. I wouldn’t exactly call Beyonce my, “sister”.

          • J Hariss

            @Guestest but I bet you & others like you be the ones on social media going in on Beyoncé just because she doesnt respond to every issue that occurs around the world surrounding black lives.. As If she doesnt have a life of her own to tend to. Oh she black enough then but any other time she isnt black enough smh

It’s sad that she has many people fooled.

        • WTF????

          You and this “October Libra” chick (who isn’t wrapped too tight and is obsessed with Beyonce) are all up in here talking like you have first hand knowledge of these accusations and hearsay that you are throwing out there and condemning this woman like she did something to you personally. I have been fan of Destinys Child and Beyonce as a solo artist from day one and am very familiar with the constant rumor mill and all this BS you are talking is just that– BS! And what did she supposedly do to Jennifer Hudson when she herself has come out and spoken highly of Beyonce and how much she respects her work ethic? Where do you haters come up with all of this negativity and gossip without considering that there is always another side to the story?

          It’s funny how you try to pit Beyonce against women like Jhud, Ledisi, exDestinys Child members, etc. and make her out to be the mean girl because what–she is light skinned, pretty and winning? You blame her because her look is more desirable over other types of black women so you have to rationalize by accusing her of taking shine from other women? How is that even possible? Fame is fair game and it is not her fault that the PUBLIC and the FANS choose her! Beyonce doesn’t have to try and keep anyone back to get ahead and she works her butt off and has EARNED every bit of her success.

          • Guestest

            You are crazy if you think i’m reading all of that.

            • WTF????

              TF are you even still doing here?

              You don’t have to read it. I still wrote it and I don’t take it back.

              • Guestest

                Good for you. 🙂

            • CeCe Says Ugonlearntaday

              UH-OH THE BEYHIVE IS COMING AFTER YA! ROFLMMFAO! Get ur bug spray. Everyone is entitled to their opinion even if you don’t agree with it. BTW Beyonce is just a singer who has been crafted to please the masses. There are way better looking and sounding black female singers then her. She is not the end all to be all of music.

            • Kim

              Lol homegirl wrote a book.

          • J Hariss

            girl you know he/she read all of it Lol

      • WTF????

        Just listen to yourself. Trying to label someone else as a liar when your entire opinion is based on rumors, one sided innuendos and even more BS that you just threw in there to embellish.

        You need help. That is all.

      • CeCe Says Ugonlearntaday

        YASSSSSS #NEVERABEYFAN

      • J Hariss

        Based of you and luvmybrownskin’s posts under this article… yall are some dumb ignorant fools real talk.

    • Ariel

      Of course! No one is going to say anything personal about her publicly without her approval out of fear of a lawsuit and maybe their career.

    • XboxCentral

      Look I’m no Beyonce stan and pretty indifferent to her at this point. She irritates me now…But even I know a pregnant woman when I see one. I can’t believe y’all are still on that. She definitely carried that baby. Let it go.

      • LuvMyBrownskin

        Nope, No and Will Not!

    • J Hariss

      So do you mean to tell me Beyoncé Jay Z Tina Lawson Solange Angie (Bey& Solange’s cousin) & other individuals who have spoke of a pregnant Beyoncé are all lying about Bey’s pregnancy? smh Lol

      • LuvMyBrownskin

        Yes!

  • Ariel

    I may read it just b/c I’m nosy, lol.
