The superstar couple, who last week celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary in Havana, were under investigation by two members of Congress for the visit because of the United States’ long-standing embargo against Cuba, and the human rights violations that the Castro government allegedly still condones.
However, a source tells Reuters that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s trip was a U.S. government-approved “people-to-people” cultural visit during which they met with Cuban artists, musicians and architects.
The outlet says pair’s trip does not violate the law because it involved no meetings with Cuban officials or typical tourist activity, such as going to the beach.
