Jay-Z, Beyonce to Take Each Other’s Last Names

Jay-Z and BeyonceIt looks like Jay-Z will take Beyonce‘s last name — if you believe the rumormill, that is. According to the British tabloid, The Daily Star, Jay will carry on his wife’s family name, Knowles, by adding it to his own.

The change will allegedly take place to keep the Knowles’ name alive since Beyonce’s parents only have daughters. Ironically this move comes just in time as Beyonce’s mother Tina, filed for divorce amid claims of her husband Matthew’s alleged infidelity. “They want to keep Knowles because Beyonce’s parents didn’t have any sons and they’re keen to keep the name going strong,” a source told the paper. “Especially if they don’t produce any children themselves.”

Jay, born Shawn Carter will become Shawn Knowles-Carter while his wife will become Beyonce Knowles-Carter. Although the names do have a nice ring to them, neither superstar has substantiated the claim. The notoriously private couple tied the knot in April of 2008 at a small ceremony in Jay’s New York City apartment.
