Warriors owner's wife gets death threats after awkward interaction with Jay-Z

Nicole Curran, the wife of Warriors owner Joe Lacob tells ESPN she has received death threats for this interaction with Beyoncé and Jay-Z at Game 3 of the NBA Finals after Beyoncé’s uncomfortable facial expressions went viral.

ESPN journalist Ramona Shelburne said that she had spoken to Curran who was "in tears" and "had been getting death threats" prompting her to disable her Instagram account after the Beyhive -- Beyoncé's devoted legion of fans -- found her account.

Curran told ESPN that she was asking both Jay-Z and Beyoncé if they wanted a drink as they were her and her husband's guests at the game. She explained that she had been leaning over Beyoncé because of the loudness of the Oracle Arena.

"I've never experienced cyber-bullying like this. I can't believe our players go through this. That kids go through this," Curran said.
