American power couple, Beyoncé and JAY-Z were spotted at the Brooklyn Nets basketball game this weekend as the couple enjoyed some courtside time together. Their presence at the event also blessed the world with an abundance of new photos of the Carters, including another shot of JAY-Z touching Beyoncé’s leg, which caused a stir on the internet.
According to fans of Jayoncé, there are dozens of photos where JAY-Z is touching Beyoncé on her legs. A widespread fan theory claimed that the record female Grammys winner has anxiety in public, and linked the signature pose with the disorder. However, according to Bey’s mother, Tina Knowles, that is a lie.
Taking to Instagram to clear up the rumours, Tina explained that they’re always touching each other because they’re in love.
“When you love someone and like them you just want to touch them,” wrote Tina Knowles on Instagram, sharing a bunch of photos where Jayoncé are doing their now-infamous leg rub. “Me and Richard are always touching even if it’s just our feet! Yeah!! That’s what you do! So comical people saying she has anxiety in public and that’s why he touches her! Lord people!!!! Yal can turn something good and healthy into something That it’s not!!! Stop that!!!!!”
Tina went on to say that, while it’s helpful for someone to keep a physical connection with their partner if they have anxiety, that simply isn’t the case with her daughter.
