Have Jay Z and Beyoncé dropped their latest project?
A seismic ripple tore through the entertainment world late Tuesday night as reports surfaced that Jay and Beyoncé had welcomed twins to their family, which already includes their 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.
Sources at Melba’s restaurant in Harlem told us that DJ Khaled, whose new track “Shining” features performances by Jay Z and Beyoncé, was spreading word on Tuesday evening that he’d heard that it was a done deal. He could not immediately be reached for comment.
A source who works at Jay Z’s 40/40 nightclub in the Flatiron District tells us buzz that Jay and Bey had welcomed a girl and a boy Tuesday morning was making the rounds there too, though that couldn’t be confirmed.
US Weekly reported late Tuesday night that that “a significant amount of security” outside a Los Angeles hospital had them believing the “Crazy in Love” singer was in labor there. Gossip site Hollywoodlife.com reported a similar sighting.
Twitter followed suit with claims that Bey’s babies were on the way.
“Beyoncé is in labor this is not a drill I am freaking out,” wrote one user.
On May 21, the pair celebrated a baby shower dubbed “The Carter Push Party” where they were joined by stars including La La Anthony and Serena Williams, who also has a baby on the way.
Jay Z was spotted in Jamaica over the weekend, where he’s reportedly recording new music in Bob Marley’s old studio.
A source who knows the pair says that as of last week, the power couple were expecting a baby somewhere around Independence Day. But we were cautioned not to break out the pink and blue fireworks just yet.
“I’m told three weeks, but you know how babies are,” said that source.
Reps for the pair did not immediately return calls for comment.
