The new book Becoming Beyoncé: The Untold Story claims to give a comprehensive look inside power couple Jay Z and Beyoncé’s lives, but it doesn’t even scratch the surface when it comes to the scandals, cheating and violence in their secret world.
In the new issue of In Touch magazine — on newsstands now — sources reveal explosive new details about Beyoncé and husband Jay Z’s private world and the real bombshell secrets they’ve tried to bury.
“The image the public sees of Beyoncé is not the real Beyoncé,” a source tells In Touch. “There’s a side to her and Jay Z’s world that involves drugs, violence and cheating.”

There have been a number of unsavory accusations of infidelity directed toward not only Beyoncé’s husband, Jay Z, but her father, Mathew, as well.
“One day while Jay and Mathew were at the Beverly Wilshire hotel [in Beverly Hills], a prostitute showed up and caused a huge scene out front,” an insider tells In Touch magazine. “She was screaming wildly that they needed to pay her for [sleeping with] them both.”

“There were endless women around,” adds the insider, “for both Jay Z and Mathew.” And it wasn’t just infidelity. The family also had to deal with Mathew’s abusive behavior. In October 2008, Mathew “lost it” with Beyoncé’s younger sister Solange. “During a sound check and rehearsal in New York, Mathew said that he snapped and threw Solange against a wall, punched her and knocked her out cold,” the insider tells In Touch. (A rep for Solange declined to comment.)

That was the beginning of the end. The insider says that around this time, Mathew secretly drugged his wife and Beyoncé’s mom, Tina, with sleeping pills in an attempt to keep her under his control. Finally, when Mathew’s mistress Alexsandra Wright revealed that she was pregnant with his love child in 2009, says the insider, “their marriage was over for good.” The divorce was finalized in 2011, the same year Beyoncé severed business ties with her dad.
