There’s a new Beyoncé clip floating around that has the internet buzzing and as usual, it seems that folks might be reading too much into it.

The clip, which was initially shared on Twitter and Instagram by ESPN, shows Bey and husband, Jay Z, sitting courtside during Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Oracle Arena. When the camera first pans to the musical duo, they put on their billion dollar smiles and wave. However, the camera lingers a bit too long and ends up capturing an awkward exchange.

Seated next to the couple is a woman who, at first, seems to be engaging both Jay and Bey in conversation. Upon closer inspection, however, you can see that the woman is really just talking to Jay Z and Beyoncé’s annoyance is apparent. And eventually, Bey gently nudges her away. While all of this is happening, the “Hard Knock Life” rapper doesn’t appear to be paying the woman much attention either. In fact, he also seems slightly annoyed by the interruption.

Given their history of infidelity, many assumed that the woman was trying to get a little too chummy with Jay, which pissed Bey off.

“Hive gonna make sure she’s not an issue by the 3rd quarter at the latest,” one person tweeted.

“Beyoncé is so annoyed by this woman and Hov gon’ hear about it on the jet,” another chimed in.

“Beyoncé don’t like that girl beside her at all,” another tweeter speculated.

“This woman annoying Beyoncé is about to inspire a whole new album,” added another.

As it turns out, the woman is the Golden State Warriors owner’s wife. And while it might be fun to speculate, it honestly just seems that she has zero respect for people’s personal space and Bey is over it. (See screenshot below for more insight on that.)


Personally, I hate it when people talk over me. And to lean over me while doing it (and possibly touch my hair)? That is plain rude. What you’re not about to do is treat me like a piece of furniture.
