Beyonce Gives a Death Stare as Warriors Owner’s Wife Talks to Jay-Z

Beyoncé and Jay-Z turned Game 3 of the 2019 NBA Finals into a date night — and the “Formation” singer made sure that no one came between them.

During the Wednesday, June 5, game between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors, the cameras panned over to the Carters, who sat courtside next to Warriors majority owner Joe Lacob and his wife, Nicole Lacob. At one point, Nicole leaned over Beyoncé, 37, to chat with Jay-Z, 49, as the superstar couple smiled and waved to people sitting on the opposite side of the court.

What happened next drove the Beyhive wild. Queen Bey’s grin quickly faded into a scowl as she looked around Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. Then, she visibly shifted over in her seat, moving in Nicole’s direction and therefore prompting some fans to speculate that Beyoncé tried to set some boundaries.

“Beyoncé don’t like that girl beside her at all,” one member of the Beyhive tweeted. Another Twitter user wrote, “Beyonce is so annoyed by this woman and hov gon’ hear about it on the jet. beyonce definitely didn’t think that tonight of all nights that she’d have to hit a woman with a shoulder nudge in rare burberry but here we are.”

Naturally, video of the seemingly icy interaction quickly went viral on Twitter. “Somebody better tell Becky she better BACK UP OFF BEY!” the Los Angeles radio station Power 106 tweeted, referencing a lyric from Beyoncé’s 2016 single “Sorry.”
