Anytime Queen Bey gets bad press, you can trust her PR team to go in full-crisis mode.
Their most recent “rumor control” came after reports the Beyonce was kicked out of the Egyptian pyramids for rude behavior. Zahi Hawass, a former Egyptian Minister of State for Antiquities, told the Independent that the 32-year-old pop star was late and unapologetic during her visit.
“Most people I take on tours are very nice and we become friends. But this lady…She said she would come at 3 p.m. but she came late. I said, ‘You have to say I’m sorry I’m late.’ But she didn’t open her mouth.
“I brought a photographer and she also had a photographer and a guard. When my photographer started to shoot, he said ‘No, Stop! I am the one who says yes or no, not you.’ I said ‘In that case since you almost hit my photographer and you are not polite – out! I am not giving you the privilege of having you on my tour.’ I said Beyoncé was stupid and I left.”
Well, according to Beyonce’s people, this story is completely false. “This never happened,” her rep told E! News. “The last time she was in Egypt was on tour in 2009. Nothing like this happened. Lies and more lies.”
Honestly, we wouldn’t be too shocked it this story was true. But, despite the misunderstanding, Bey and Hawass did take a cool photo together outside of the tourist site!
