Amid the current swirl of divorce rumors, several conflicting reports have emerged. A video from April 4, 2024, on YouTube dramatically announced that "Beyoncé DUMPS Jay Z After Feds Link Him To Diddy's Crimes," suggesting a definitive end to their marital saga. According to the video, Beyoncé has decided to end her marriage with Jay-Z following allegations from 50 Cent connecting him to criminal activities associated with Diddy.

However, a search of the Harris County District Clerk's Office records reveals there has been no record of a divorce filing between the Houston-residing couple. The Harris County District Clerk's Office, under the leadership of Marilyn Burgess, is responsible for maintaining a wide array of legal documents, including those related to civil, family, and criminal courts within the county.

Beyoncé's still fighting for her marriage, even after Jay-Z's affairs.

Despite the rumors about Jay-Z and Beyoncé divorcing, the two are still working hard for their marriage. They faced a significant test when Jay-Z admitted to infidelity. This confession came to light in his 2017 album "4:44," where Jay-Z expressed remorse and reflected on the impact of his actions on their marriage, per Koimoi.

In addressing the infidelity publicly, Beyoncé has utilized both her music and platforms like Vogue to express her hurt and betrayal. A source close to the couple revealed to OK! magazine in March 2024 that Beyoncé's decision to bring up the cheating serves as a reminder to Jay-Z of his actions, suggesting that "it’s like he’ll never live it down." However, the same insider emphasized that leaving Jay-Z is not an option for Beyoncé.

The source explained to the magazine, "They’re one of those couples who are worth more together than apart. It’s almost as if their marriage has evolved into a business partnership, and they’re just friends now who basically lead separate lives. So whatever tension there may be behind closed doors, they seem to go out of their way to not let the public see it."
