Beyonce Refuses To Smoke Welcome Cigar In Cuba While Hubby Jay-Z Puffs Away
Beyonce and Jay-Z have taken a trip to Cuba to celebrate their five years of marriage, but while the nation is known for its cigar, the singer was not keen to take a puff, while hubby Jay-Z was happy to indulge.
On Wednesday night, the couple took their mothers and an unknown man to eat at La Guardia restaurant, where they dined for two hours and its manager Beberan Aemereca welcomed the couple with a cigar.
“He smoked it here and she [Beyoncé] took some photos of him while he was smoking it. She didn’t smoke it,” Aemereca told E! News.
The manager commented that the couple, who were pictured walking the streets of Cuba surrounded by excited fans, were holding hands throughout their meal.
“Everyone was surprised when they came in,” Aemereca said.
The Single Ladies star enjoyed her cocktails, having a lemon dacquari, which is a white rum with sugar while Jay-Z sipped on a mojito before moving onto the red wine with the main meal.
“They ate chicken with honey and lemon, a restaurant specialty and had mixed appetizers,” Aemereca added. According to the manager, Beyonce didn’t over do it with her make-up but still was stunning, stating that she wore a black and white dress and “looked very beautiful. She had no makeup but looked so beautiful. Jay-Z was very happy and smiling.”
He also said: “They both looked very relaxed and were having a good time. They looked like a family, like a family dinner. It was like they were on vacation and were very relaxed and happy.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z are a household name, so its no surprise that fans were camped outside the restaurant and the couple didn’t disappoint as they greeted them following their dinner.
“The people in the street were very excited to see them. They [Bey and Jay] were surprised because there were so many people in the streets and were very surprised with the reaction from the people. They seemed happy to see their fans. They said hi to the crowd and waved,” he said.
“When she finished her dinner, she took a photo with the [employees] at the restaurant. She took photos with her family and the chef and her husband. They were very nice.”
Last month it was claimed that Jay-Z had hired a personal cigar roller to accompany him on his Legends Of The Summer world tour.
According to an insider, the rapper is using his money to create a backstage “gentlemen’s club” at all of his tour dates.
“Jay met this cigar expert at a friend’s private party recently. He had been hired to roll cigars for guests in a smoking room,” a source told The Sun newspaper.
“They were chatting for ages about the origins of tobacco and all the different types and then Jay-Z offered to have him on board for the tour dates.”
The father-of-one will be looking to impress his new wingman Justin Timberlake, who will also be joining the tour scheduled for this summer.
