Beyoncé wants Jay to 'get healthy’


Beyoncé Knowles has reportedly asked Jay Z to take better care of his health.

The 33-year-old singer is said to be worried about her husband’s weight and has apparently asked him to consider a diet following their On The Run tour. It’s suggested the singing queen thinks her spouse could slim down by about 20lbs (9Kg). “She’s so over his size and thinks it’s ridiculous that he doesn’t take care of his health,” a source claimed to the American edition of OK! magazine.

Apparently the songstress is primarily concerned about the health issues Jay may face if he does not tone up. She is said to have put the pressure on the 44-year-old to lose weight immediately.

“She’s worried about his cholesterol, his blood pressure, everything, and wants him to lose weight urgently,” according to the insider.

Beyoncé’s own performances are notoriously high energy. Jay, on the other hand, keeps things low key and is “very inactive”.

She feels her love spends too much time in the studio or office. He did attempt a vegan diet with her in 2013, but the insider is claiming that he didn’t do it properly.

The couple decided to ditch animal products for 22 days around his birthday in December, with Jay telling fans all about their new eating plan via his blog.

"It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought,” he enthused at the time.

"Why now? There's something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge; 22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas day. It just feels right!”
