There was likely much trash talking in the Knowles-Carter household last night as Beyonce’s Houston Rockets took on Jay Z’s Brooklyn Nets. The A-list couple, who up until recently has been traveling all over the globe for their On the Run Tour and subsequent R&R, returned home to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Monday, Jan. 12, to see their teams face off.
Though they sat courtside next to the Nets, the pair kept a low profile, arriving in the second quarter and keeping their faces off the jumbotron, an eyewitness tells Us Weekly. The “Flawless” singer, 33, wore all black, including a wide-brimmed hat and stilettos.
The couple looked cheerful throughout, chatting with friends and each other while watching the game. They also noticeably laughed and clapped for a few fans featured on Brooklyn’s “Dance Cam."
After the Rockets defeated the Nets, 113 to 99, Beyonce, with freshly lightened locks by celeb colorist Rita Hazan, got up, wrapped a puffy black coat around her, and followed her home team into their locker room, throwing up a peace sign at the screaming fans.
It was the Grammy winner’s first public appearance since fresh pregnancy rumors hit on Sunday, when Bey posted a cryptic Instagram photo. The picture featured her on the beach with her body buried in the sand. The sand had been shaped to look like two breasts and an oversized belly.
The Houston native’s former Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams talked about the rumors on The View on Monday.
“You know, when she was pregnant, people said that she wasn’t pregnant, and, you know, it’s just no truth to it,” Williams said. “Sorry!”
