RUMOR CONTROL: Beyonce's Rep DENIES Reports She Was BANNED From The Pyramids
A rep for Beyonce is denying reports that she was kicked out of the pyramids a few years ago. Read the rep's statement about the "lies" inside....
In a statement released to E! News, Beyonce's rep has denied unfounded reports published in The Independent that she was kicked out of the pyramids by Dr Hawass, Egypt's former head of antiquities and gatekeeper of the Pyramids.
Here's what the publication reported:
From the mouth of Dr Hawass, Beyonce is rude and stupid! He recalls her visit to Egypt this way:
"Most people I take on tours are very nice and we become friends. But this lady…She said she would come at 3pm but she came late. I said 'You have to say I'm sorry I'm late'. But she didn't open her mouth.
I brought a photographer and she also had a photographer and a guard. When my photographer started to shoot, he said 'No, Stop! I am the one who says yes or no, not you.' I said 'In that case since you almost hit my photographer and you are not polite - out! I am not giving you the privilege of having you on my tour.' I said Beyoncé was stupid and I left."
That was allegedly his version of the event. Here's what Bey's rep said:
"This never happened. The last time she was in Egypt was on tour in 2009. Nothing like this happened. Lies and more lies."
E! News did go on to mention that during Bey's 2009 trip to the pyramids, there were rumors that she and Hawass had an awkward encounter. Hmmm.......
We love the Beyhive.....but the whole "she came late" and "she didn't open her mouth" comments wouldn't be too surprising.
