Clarification: SHANICA KNOWLES

Earlier this year, heatworld published an article, entitled “Beyoncé’s cousin: 'Bey and Jay Z have split MULTIPLE TIMES over the years”, where we attributed various statements to Shanica Knowles who we described as being Beyoncé’s cousin.

We’ve since been contacted by Shanica who has clarified that she is not related to Beyoncé and has never spoken about the intimate details of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's marriage or alleged separation.

We are happy to make the position clear and apologise to Shanica for any upset caused.
