Beyonce and Jay Z are planning to split.
The couple - who are currently on their joint 'On The Run' world tour - are said to be working out a way to break up without divorcing following the final dates of tour in Paris this December and have already removed their wedding rings.
A source told The New York Post's Page Six: "There are no rings, if you haven't noticed.
"They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing . . .This is a huge concert tour and they've already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front."
The source added that the tour will be the last for Jay Z, 44, and Beyonce, 32, after marriage counsellors failed to help them get their relationship back on track.
It is believed the couple - who have a two-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy - thought having their first child would bring them closer again but they soon started to go their separate ways.
The source explained: "For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family.
"But, after a while, Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey. They made the classic mistake of thinking a child would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire, and it didn't."
The news comes just two months after Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles was seen attacking Jay in leaked security footage from an elevator as the trio made their way out of a Met Ball after-party in New York.
A statement was later released, saying: "At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."
