Jay Z stops fan from approaching Beyonce

The hip-hop supercouple was among the guests at the SVA Theatre, where pal Usher's new film, in which he plays boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, was screened, but they tried to avoid the crowds by entering and exiting via the venue's back door.

One man managed to briefly walk alongside Beyonce as she left the premiere, and tried to snag a selfie with the star, but Jay, who was a few steps behind his wife, stuck his arm out to keep the fan from infringing on the singer's personal space.

Usher shared a photo of the loved-up couple cuddling and smiling for the camera on his Snapchat page, simply captioning the image, "Familia".
