Mile-High Demands

There’s a diva in the Carter family, but it isn’t Beyoncé – it’s her husband, Jay-Z!

Forget about requesting candlelit dressing rooms and specially prepared meals backstage at his concerts; the rapper just wants to be able to watch sports 24/7!

The die-hard sports nut, who used to own a part of the Brooklyn Nets and launched his own sports management company in April, is demanding that no matter where he goes, he must be able to watch his favorite teams play – even when he’s travelling at 30,000 feet.

"Jay-Z will only fly in a plane with Direct TV because he's so into his sports,” an industry insider tells In Touch. “But there are only about 10 planes in the country that have Direct TV, so he pays massive amounts of money to fly those planes to wherever he is."

We can’t believe we’re saying this, but we almost feel bad for Beyoncé and their daughter, Blue Ivy. There’s not much chance of getting your hands on the remote control to watch Project Runway or even Sesame Street when you’re married to a sports fan like Hova!
