    Adding fuel to the fire of those divorce rumors, the New York Post is reporting that Beyonce was spotted touring a $21.5 million-dollar condo in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood.

    A new home for her, Jay-Z and baby Blue Ivy? Not likely, since this 4,054 square-foot pad is nearly half the size of the luxurious TriBeCa condo the Carter family currently calls home.

    According to the Post’s source, “She was very quiet, as if she was looking on the sly.” Additional sources also said that the fact that Jay-Z wasn’t there was a big red flag, since he “has always been extremely involved in their real estate deals.” 

    While many people say it’s just a matter of when, not if, they will split, Beyonce may be getting her ducks in a row and finding a new home.

    If it’s true and they’re no longer “Crazy in Love,” this New York City condo is definitely fit for “Queen B.”

    The magnificent Penthouse offers unequalled panoramic city and river vistas on one of Chelsea’s finest blocks. Every inch of this immaculate duplex reflects superior craftsmanship, utmost attention to detail and ultra-refined finishes at every turn, with a backdrop of stretching views of the Empire State Building, Highline, Hudson River and more from floor-to-ceiling windows.

    The custom-designed living space is complemented by a private 642 square foot, north-facing terrace that showcases stretching city sights. Completely renovated to perfection, this large, light-bathed 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath duplex penthouse was made for entertaining. With huge formal areas and the massive outdoor terrace accessible from both the grand living room and library, there is a  seamless flow for intimate barbecues and large-scale parties.

    A top-of-the-line open chef’s kitchen faces south and west and is equipped with a breakfast area, white Cararra marble, Arclinea Italian cabinetry, Boffi fixtures, premium appliances including a Viking range with a vented hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and wine refrigerator.

    Other highlights of this enviable residence are 9’2″ ceiling heights, charcoal granite and teak floors, teak wall panels and Venetian plaster walls, custom electronic shades throughout, stone tiles in the spa-like baths, a custom-designed staircase with an intricate bronze railing, and spacious laundry room with a full-size Miele washer and dryer, teak and stainless steel cabinetry.

    The sprawling master bedroom retreat is the piece de resistance with its spectacular views, massive teak closet providing loads of luxury storage, and opulent master bath with ribbed marble walls and Boffi fixtures.

    Perfect for Beyonce, the luxurious building has a 24-hour doorman and sits in a prized location, just minutes from West Chelsea’s best spots. 

    Will she or won’t she? Only time will tell.

      Here’s a good one from the real estate rumor mill: according to reports, Beyoncé has plunked down close to $6 million on an opulent Houston, Texas, mansion for mom, Tina Knowles. If you haven’t stayed close to the Knowles’ family drama in the past few years, you may not have heard that Tina split from long-time husband (and former Beyoncé manager) Matthew Knowles after she found out that he fathered a love child with another woman during an 18-month-long affair. There’s no forgiving and forgetting in that family, so the duo split for keeps, and Tina’s now a ‘single lady.’

      Lucky for mama, Beyoncé knows that a change can do a woman good, and a new house means a serious change of scenery.

      The home, which was listed as a short sale, is the epitome of resort-style living. Nestled in a very private location in affluent Houston, the estate is built with striking Italian and French architecture and looks out onto views of lush gardens and sculpted granite.

      Throughout the property, you’ll find state-of-the-art lighting, audio, security, and HVAC systems. The entryway is punctuated with suspended staircases, and just beyond, you’ll find a mirrored elevator, granite floors with marble, interior cast stone columns, malachite inlays, wide walnut and cherry floors, soaring seamless-glass windows, gold-plated fixtures and more.

      That definitely sounds like a home fit for a ‘diva.’

        $43.5 million / $400K a month

        As one of the music industry’s most powerful dynamic duos, valued at a net worth of around $750 million between the two, it’s no surprise new parents Jay-Z and Beyonce, along with their 7-month old baby girl Blue Ivy, can afford to live a lavish lifestyle. But just in case you ever doubted these two for even just one second, hip hop’s Bonnie and Clyde are here to remind us yet again that they’re still very much “big pimpin” and “spendin that cheese.”

        According to the NY Post, the couple have reportedly zeroed in on a famous Hamptons vacation home to rent for the month of August, shelling out $400K to lounge around mega-builder Joe Farrell’s million dollar “Sandcastle” playhouse. Made famous for its out-of-this-world amenities and lonely-love-seeking-billionaire clientele, the mansion is actually listed on the market for $43.5 million, however is available for rent in the interim –  only to those of the likes of Jay-Z and B, of course.

        Sitting on 11.5 acres in coveted Bridgehampton South, the 31,000 square-foot, three level estate oozes luxury and entertainment and drops even the most privileged of jaws. Its standout amenities include a 10-seat theater with interactive seats, a baseball field, 2-lane bowling alley, skateboard half pipe, squash and racket ball court, karaoke stage and bar, 60-foot heated pool with underwater stereo system, sunken tennis court, virtual golf course, and a “children’s performing area.” The media room includes 5 plasma TV’s and the in-house spa comes complete with Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and massage area. For guests, a two-bedroom apartment houses four comfortably. Among the estate’s over-the-top features, you can find 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms for those interested in actually sleeping during their stay.

        Jay-Z and Beyonce might be wondering where the private landing strip is located, given the new Jet Beyonce purchased for her hubby this past Father’s Day. Although that feature has yet to be built, we believe there are plenty of perks to make up for it with this dream-come-true Empire State vacation home!
