Happy 10th wedding anniversary to Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Hopefully she can take a break from her 11-hour Coachella prep sessions to toast with Hova — along with some Ace of Spades Champagne, of course.
While we bet it feels like more than 10 years to them with all their ups and downs — and we aren’t talking just about the elevator brawl after the Met Gala — to us, it seems like just yesterday we were covering their “secret” wedding. The news of it played out over several days — and it then took them months to confirm that it even happened. That’s so their M.O. — to leave us guessing.
Bey and Jay were always evasive about their relationship, denying they were even an item in the beginning, which was some time between 1997 and 2000. (They were purposely vague because she was just around 18, under or over, and he was 12 years her senior.) However, by 2008 we knew that our modern day “Bonnie & Clyde” was “Crazy in Love,” so the gossip world went nuts when, after all the fake tabloid stories about a possible wedding, they showed up at the village court house in Scarsdale, N.Y., of all places, the town town 45 minutes north of his Tribeca penthouse in Manhattan, to apply for a marriage license on April 1, 2008.
