Los Angeles – Beyoncé Knowles has hit back at allegations she was kicked out of the Pyramids in Egypt for being “rude”.

The Love On Top hit maker, who has a 22-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter with her rapper husband Jay Z, was reportedly told to leave the popular tourist attraction in 2009 by infamous archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass, who is known as Egypt’s Indiana Jones, because he was unimpressed with her behaviour.

The former Egyptian antiquities minister told The Independent newspaper: “Most people I take on tours are very nice and we become friends. But this lady ... She said she would come at [3pm] but she came late. I said ‘You have to say I’m sorry I’m late.’ But she didn’t open her mouth.

“I brought a photographer and she also had a photographer and a guard. When my photographer started to shoot, he said ‘No, Stop! I am the one who says yes or no, not you.’ I said, ‘In that case since you almost hit my photographer and you are not polite – out! I am not giving you the privilege of having you on my tour.’ I said Beyoncé was stupid and I left.”

But a spokesperson for the 32-year-old star claims the incident was fabricated and told E! News: “This never happened. The last time she was in Egypt was on tour in 2009. Nothing like this happened. Lies and more lies.”
