She posted the image online and certainly did not look like someone whose marriage to rapper Jay Z is said to have reached crisis point.
The photograph – in which she coolly strides toward the camera – is the latest in a series of cryptic images the US star has shared with fans, as speculation over her marriage intensifies.
Of course sometimes **** goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator
Their On The Run Tour is due to end in Paris next month but insiders fear the relationship could crumble before then. The couple have a two-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
Jay Z is said to be striving to save the marriage, and plans to whisk his wife off for a make-or-break holiday.
And at the weekend, Beyonce released a surprise remix of her track Flawless, featuring Nicki Minaj. In it she hints that the now-infamous fracas in a lift between her younger sister Solange Knowles and Jay Z has been put behind them. CCTV footage showed Solange hitting him in the lift at a glitzy event.
The new lyrics say: “Of course sometimes **** goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”
Jay Z has never talked about the argument, which happened after New York’s Met Gala in May, and Solange, 28, has previously only referred to it as “that thing”.
Speaking to Lucky Magazine last month, she said the trio were now on good terms. She said: “What’s important is that my family and I are all good.”
In a joint statement released in May, Solange, Beyonce and Jay Z said they had “moved forward as a united family” after the incident, footage of which was posted on celebrity site TMZ.
