50 Cent poses for a photo-call for the TV series Power during the MIPTV content-development event on April 7, 2014, in Cannes on the French Riviera. 

Could it be that Beyoncé and Solange Knowles have a lot in common when it comes to being “ride or die?”  Apparently there’s a good reason why Jay Z and Beyoncé refer to themselves as “Bonnie and Clyde.”  At least there is according to rapper 50 Cent.

During a recent interview with New York’s Power 105.1, 50 Cent alleges that Beyoncé took matters into her own hands when she confronted him over dissing Jay Z.

During the interview 50 cent recounted the incident:

One time [Beyoncé] jumped off of a ledge and came running over ’cause she thought me and Jay had issues. And I’m like, ‘What the f—k? Did she really just jump and run up on me like that?’ We was at the Cosmopolitan. She jumped out and was like this, ‘What?! That Bonnie and Clyde for real! You try this or what, Boy?! I'm here!’ She bugged out at me. I looked, and Jay starts laughing. He’s like, ‘Yo, you know what it is.’ I said, ‘Oh s—t! What the f—k y’all got going on, Man?’ Bey jumped down off of that joint like, ‘What?! Wassup?!’

Who knows if 50 Cent’s story is an accurate description of what happened, or if it happened at all. But what’s so bad about a wife defending her husband? I’m still having a hard time imagining Beyoncé jumping over a ledge and getting all tough.
