Beyoncé and Jay Z plan to split

Los Angeles - Beyoncé and Jay Z are planning to split.

The couple - who are currently on their joint On The Run world tour - are said to be working out a way to break-up without divorcing following the final dates of tour in Paris this December and have already removed their wedding rings.

A source told The New York Post's Page Six: "There are no rings, if you haven't noticed.

"They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing ... This is a huge concert tour and they've already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front."

The source added that the tour will be the last for Jay Z, 44, and Beyoncé, 32, after marriage counsellors failed to help them get their relationship back on track.

It is believed the couple - who have a 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy - thought having their first child would bring them closer again but they soon started to go their separate ways.

The source explained: ''For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family.

"But, after a while, Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey. They made the classic mistake of thinking a child would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire, and it didn't."

The news comes just two months after Beyoncé's sister Solange Knowles was seen attacking Jay in leaked security footage from an elevator as the trio made their way out of a Met Ball after-party in New York.

A statement was later released, saying: "At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."

    Ofcourse they are... Nothing is sacred to these entertainers so If it takes a commoner, working class man to say that he will be with and love his wife till his last breath his dragged from his carcass then I am glad to so so be it.

    These rumours were circulating for awhile, its a shame though. Marriage is hard work.

      Both of them are very wealthy and this makes a difference.

    Rich and famous. Unlimited choices. Marriage becomes an inconvenience. Sad for the offspring though. I for one wish their attempt to split does not succeed, but then again marriage is not for people who do not understand the importance of compromise. You need unlimited patience, unlimited forgiveness and unlimi understanding. That is only possible for adults not mere grownups.

    They've been splitting for the past 5 years now. Until they issue an official statement I'll take it as a desperate attempt by the press to get some clicks and sales going. Not buying it at all. Oh also Kim and Kanye are also divorcing. (that's why they were so cozy at the awards,) bloody tabloids!
