Beyonce and Jay Z are seen NOT wearing marriage bands as the pop superstar kicks off Formation World Tour
She gave a shout-out to her ‘beautiful husband’ at the end of the opening concert of her Formation World Tour in Miami after days of speculation about the state of her marriage.
But in candid pictures from behind the scenes at the Marlins Park Stadium on Wednesday night, Beyonce is conspicuously missing her wedding ring, and Jay Z isn’t wearing his band either.
The revelation is likely to re-ignite questions about what exactly is going on between the power couple who tied the knot in 2008 and have a four-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.

No band: But the photo also revealed the singer, 34, is not wearing her wedding ring, days after she dropped her new album Lemonade in which she rages about being a woman scorned and ‘throws away her ring’
Just a a few days ago, Beyonce unleashed her surprise new album Lemonade with a one-hour special on HBO in which she performs the song Sorry, about infidelity.
She’s seen swinging a baseball bat in anger as the city goes up in flames behind her as she rages against ‘Becky with the good hair’ who’s stolen her man.
And in the video accompanying the track Don’t Hurt Yourself, the singer takes off her ring and throws it at the camera as she sings: ‘If you try this s**t again, you gonna lose your wife.

Making a statement? Despite the whole world wondering about the state of his marriage, the Tidal mogul kept the fourth finger on his left hand bare
While the absence of the $5 million diamond ring given to her by Jay Z might be explained as taking a wise precaution while she’s on stage performing, the 34-year-old wasn’t wearing it either as she hung out with Blue Ivy ahead of the tour kick-off.
Jay Z, who was photographed chatting with support act DJ Khaled before the concert, was also minus his wedding band.
The couple also had the Roman numeral IV inked on the fourth finger of their left hands to symbolize their official union on the 4th of April, 2008.
But the tattoos are fading and appear not have been re-inked.

Most of the discussion since the Lemonade album dropped has focused on its no-holds-barred lyrics, which simmer with the rage of a woman scorned.
It sparked widespread speculation about whether Jay Z had cheated on his stunning wife and if so, who he had cheated with.
The gossip led by the ultra-loyal Bey Hive alleged that the ‘Becky with the good hair’ who’s been the object of his attentions was either American fashion designer Rachel Roy or British singer Rita Ora.
Both women took to social media to deny the allegations and to insist that the rumors were false.
