Jay-Z Brushes Off Victoria’s Secret Models For Beyoncé


John Kennedy / November 24, 2009

Jay-Z isn’t afraid to tell a Victoria’s Secret model “No”… when Beyoncé‘s around.

According to the New York Post, the rapper and his lovely wife B showed up at Thursday’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show in New York and refused to walk the red carpet. At the fashion show, he also refused to take pictures with the Victoria’s Secret models. He and B then attended the after-party at M2, and got a private booth that was reportedly as far away from the models as possible. There, he still refused to take pictures with the models, which others struggled to get close to.

Why? “[Jay-Z] explained it was out of respect for Beyoncé,” a source told “Page Six.”

Some of the models in this year’s show included Selita Ebanks, Marisa Miller, Heidi Klum, Doutzen Kroes, and Alessandra Ambrosio.

Currently, Jay and B have been rumored to be working on having a baby. The rapper reportedly told Gotham that it was a “top-priority” for the two, but on an April episode of The View, Beyoncé, who witnessed her sister Solange give birth, says she’s not ready.

“I definitely want one, but I’m not ready for all of that,” she said. “I don’t think a person should see that before her time. It was a little much. But I’m so in love with my nephew, and every time I see him I’m like, God, he’s just amazing.” –Linda Hobbs
