We knew our gurl wouldn't put another lady through such pain!
Beyoncé might always look her best, but she doesn't need any work to do so!
After it was reported that Bey stopped a ferris wheel at Coney Island for 30 minutes so she could touch up her makeup since she was shooting a music video there, it was also reported that a woman was stuck on the ride during that time and left in tears.
But that ain't so, Perezcious readers. In fact, the Wonder Wheel operator has released a statement about what went down, and it turns out the woman was never stuck on the ferris wheel to start with! She was actually off the ride before Queen Bey got on!
The operator also said:
"Another exciting day in Coney Island, as Beyoncé visited and rode Deno's Wonder Wheel. The paparazzi and media excitement which follows celebrity caused a slight delay while the amusement park ride operators secured the entrance and exit areas. Normal wait times for guests on the Wonder Wheel is 5 minutes, and due to the extra press following Beyoncé, the wait time extended to 8 minutes. The Park operators and owners apologize for the extra 3 minute delay for those riding the Wonder Wheel, while the entrance area was being secured of cameras and photographers who might interrupt the safe operation of the ride. Rider safety and providing safe family friendly entertainment is the hallmark and cornerstone of Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park. Preliminary reports of a 30 minute delay are 100% inaccurate, as Park security reviewed the in-Park security camera videotape. There is magic enough in Coney Island, for all, See you on the rides."
Awww! We're so glad Queen Bey's good name has been restored!
We'd hate to think our chill diva was actually a not-so-chill divalicious diva!
But we do think it'd be a good idea for Bey to avoid ferris wheels for a few weeks until this dramz blows over. Sorry, Blue Ivy!
