Watch Jay Z Protect Beyoncé from a Fan

Jay Z proves he’s “Crazy in Love” with Beyoncé once again, protecting his wife from an overzealous fan.

The ’03 Bonnie and Clyde attended the premiere of Hands of Stone at the SVA Theatre in New York on Monday (Aug. 22) and on their way out, fans swarmed the couple. One onlooker managed to get close to Queen Bey, looking for a selfie.

But Hov thwarted’s his plans. As the fan approached ‘Yoncé with camera phone in hand, Mr. Carter stepped in and pushed him aside with one arm, prompting security to further deter the spectator. A video of the incident was released by TMZ.

The Carters were out to support their friend Usher, who stars as Sugar Ray Leonard in Hands of Stone. Usher posted a photo of the couple on Snapchat, writing, “Familia.”
