Beyonce Baby Puts Marriage Back on Track,” reads a headline from the National Enquirer, which claims the singer’s pregnancy is “shoring up her rocky marriage to rap mogul Jay-Z.”

According to an alleged “insider” for the tabloid, “Preparing for the baby has put their marriage back on track after some recent turbulent times.” What “turbulent times”?

The mag claims that while Beyonce was on tour in Europe this summer, “Jay-Z was spotted partying in the Big Apple with model Selita Ebanks on July 20 and at the club 1Oak with a bevy of beauties on July 8.”

“Beyonce called Jay out on his party-boy behavior,” claims a supposed source, who says, “She told him that as a father-to-be he needed to act like a family man. After a heart-to-heart, Jay-Z committed himself totally to Beyonce and their baby.”

It’s awfully convenient that the Enquirer hadn’t “committed” itself to this premise until after Beyonce and Jay-Z announced the pregnancy, only bringing up allegations of “turbulent times” now that the baby supposedly fixed everything. The magazine is using the couple’s happy news to revise history and create scandal where none existed.

A source close to the couple tells Gossip Cop that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s marriage was “never off track.” Actually, the only thing off-track, once again, is the Enquirer‘s reporting.
