Can you say panic attack?!
Before she hit the stage to
perform lip synch the National Anthem at President Obama's Inauguration last month, Beyonce couldn't find her $1.8 million Lorraine Schwartz emerald earrings!
According to an ear-witness, the 31-year-old singer noticed the earrings were missing after she checked into her Washington, D.C. hotel and proceeded to ransack the suite in a mad dash to find them.
The source continued:
"After she and hubby Jay-Z checked into their hotel, Beyonce unpacked her bags and couldn’t find the earrings – which cost more than a luxury home. She rummaged through her luggage in a panic, getting her maid – and other housekeepers – to join the search."
At her hubby's urging to check her purse again, Bey opened it up to find the jewels nestled snugly in her bag.
The source added:
"She thought she’d checked her purse, but it turned out she’d been so stressed, she actually hadn’t! Beyonce then handed the maid a $500 reward for helping search – and Jay went NUTS. He told Beyonce, ‘Man, I’m the one who found them! Why don’t you pay ME?’"
Beyonce placated him with a kiss instead, which we all know is PRICELESS!
Oh, to be a fly on the wall of that suite! But that could never happen.
There are no flies where Queen Bey dwells!
