Beyoncé Knowles and Jay Z are thought to be pulling out all the stops to make their marriage work, in the midst of a fresh scandal.
The American songstress has had to battle rumours about her marriage to Jay Z ever since a video was leaked in May that showed her younger sister Solange attacking Jay in an elevator.
The latest scandal to hit the couple is from a woman named Tina Seals who is reportedly suing them over claims she is the biological mother of their daughter Blue Ivy, two.
"She knows it will blow over, and is adamant that it's not true. But the latest scandal couldn't have come at a worst time. She wanted to use her time away from the tour to collect herself after everything that's happened in the last few months, and this has come as yet another hurtful blow. It's the last thing she needs, especially on top of all the problems between her and Jay," an insider told British magazine Grazia.
Tina has previously issued similar lawsuits against Kim Kardashian and Michael Jackson, which were dismissed.
Beyoncé is thought to be pouring all her time and efforts into trying to get her marriage on track.
The couple, one of the most powerful unions in music, have been on their joint On The Run Tour since June, and have two dates left to play next month in France.
"The tour has been a whirlwind. It came hot on the heels of what has been the biggest test of their relationship. During their month off, they've agreed to give their marriage one last go and see if they can work things out, after which Beyoncé will decide what she's going to do," the insider said.
To help with their marriage, the pair have reportedly been seeking outside help including the guidance of a divorce-busting coach and a hypnotherapist who focuses on trust issues.
"They want to pull out all the stops to save their marriage. At the moment Beyoncé is still in two minds, but they can't live in flux forever. Sooner or later she'll have to decide whether her marriage is worth saving," the source added.
