JAY-Z and Beyoncé

Warriors Owner’s Wife Speaks Out After BeyHive Attack

Don’t mess with Queen Bey.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z were courtside as the Golden State Warriors faced off against the Toronto Raptors during Game 3 of the NBA Finals at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. on Wednesday night (June 5).

At one point during the game, Nicole Curran, the wife of Warriors owner Joe Lacob, was seen chatting up JAY-Z. Bey didn’t look too pleased as the woman leaned over to speak with her billionaire husband. Her body language spoke volumes, with E! Online calling it the “iciest, shadiest side-eye the world may ever see.”

After the video went viral, it didn’t take long for the BeyHive to attack, roasting Curran on social media. She was forced to turn off her Instagram comments because they were flooded with bee emojis.

Curran tried to defend herself against the critics. “Listen Beehive,” she commented on a Shade Room post. “I respect Queen B. I love her! I talked to her husband twice tonight. First, to take a drink order for them both when they arrived as they were our guests. Second, to explain why I gave his wife a rose from a fan. All of this has been taken out of context. I am a happily married woman. Telling me to kill myself?????? Somehow I don’t think she would support this.”

Before making her Instagram account private, Curran also posted a photo of her seemingly touching Beyoncé and captioned it: “We should all help and support each other.”
