Jay-Z and Beyonce might have a pre-nup, but as far as anyone is concerned, it’s none of our business, just as we thought. And when we posted that interview from Neon Magazine we knew something wasn’t right.

The interview turned out to be entirely false, and was made up by the freelance editor who submitted it to the mag. When they came to the guy for verification and he couldn’t prove it, they released the following statement:

We do have serious doubts in the truth of many statements of the interview of Ms. Beyonce Knowles published in NEON, Issue January/2010. The article was written by the freelancer Ingo Mecek. The editors-in-Chief have confronted Ingo Mocek with these doubts. Ingo Mocek was not able to verify certain statements, particularly the statements regarding a marriage contract of Ms. Knowles. There, we assume that the interview did not take place as claimed by Ingo Mocek.

NEON dissociates itself from the content of the interview with Ms. Knowles. NEON subscribes to a high level standard of truthful journalism. Since Ingo Mocek has violated these standards serverely, NEON has terminated all relationships with Inco Mocek with immediate effect. We sincerely apologize to Ms. Knowles and her management for all personal inconvenience that may have arisen due to the publication of this interview.
