Wife Of Warriors Owner Explains Beyonce Incident
A video has gone viral of Beyoncé and JAY-Z court side at Game 3 of the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors game. Bey appears to be giving the wife — Nicole Curran, of the Warriors owner a mean side-eye, while the wife speaks to JAY.
After receiving much backlash from the BeyHive and social media, Curran explained what really happened between her and Beyoncé. Curran reportedly spoke to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne about the incident and said she asked the Carters if they wanted drinks. Apparently, she leaned over to hear JAY over the noisy crowd.
Shelburne took to Twitter to explain further, and said, "Just spoke to Nicole Curran, the wife of Warriors owner Joe Lacob, about the ‘incident’ with Beyoncé last night. She was in tears. Said she had been getting death threats on social media all night this morning she disabled her IG account just to make it stop. Curran said she had no idea anything was even amiss until she got home and started seeing texts from friends and checked her social media. She’s invited Jay Z and Beyoncé to the game 3-4 times before. Last night she says she asked if they wanted drinks. Beyoncé asked for water. Curran says Jay Z asked for a vodka soda. She asked if he wanted lime with that. But it was loud in Oracle and she couldn’t hear, so she leaned over. That’s where the photos of Beyoncé looking askance at her come from."
Shelburne added, "Curran says she then went to go get them those drinks. ‘There was no hostility. I was trying to be a good hostess,’ she said. ‘I’ve never experienced cyber bullying like this. I can’t believe our players go through this. That kids go through this.’"
Bey’s publicist has also stepped forward to call out fans for "spewing hate" at Curran. Yvette Noel-Schure wrote on Instagram, "I am looking back today at the start of The OTRII tour, one year ago. It was a place of joy, unimaginable entertainment from two of the best performers in the world, and a place of love. Every single day on that tour I saw love. Which is why I also want to speak here to the beautiful BeyHiVE. I know your love runs deep but that love has to be given to every human. It will bring no joy to the person you love so much if you spew hate in her name. We love you."
