Must Be Nice! Jay and Bey Reportedly Hit Their 80 Employees Off With Nearly $4 Million In Bonuses
Life is good if you’re employed by hip-hop power couple Jay Z and Beyoncé. Well, if recent reports are true at least. According to Vibe Vixen, Blue Ivy’s mommy and daddy showed their home staff and touring staff— reportedly comprised of an estimated 80-something employees— some appreciation by tossing a little bonus cash their way. We hear that each employee was given at least $45,000.
One source claims that the employees were so shocked, they called Jay’s accountant to make sure an error hadn’t been made on their checks.
“[Jay is] spreading the wealth around and everyone is blown away…Nobody got left out. A lot of them couldn’t believe it and phoned his personal assistant to check that there hadn’t been some mistake.”
At this point, all of this is speculation, but if it is in fact true, then I say good for them! It’s always refreshing to see celebrities who don’t mind spreading the wealth and paying it forward. Although, I would be a little surprised to learn that the same man who said “my presence is charity” just a few weeks ago would commit such a selfless deed, I suppose anything is possible.
