The wife of the Golden State Warriors’ owner says she has been cyber bullied after a clip went viral of her leaning over a visibly annoyed Beyoncé to chat with Jay-Z, as she revealed that she was just getting his drink order.
Nicole Curran said the A-list couple were invited as guests of her and her husband Joe Lacob to watch Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night.
Beyoncé seems to fume as Curran leans over her to speak to Jay-Z and then appears to give Curran a slight shove when the conversation ends, causing the clip to go viral on Twitter and spawning a series of memes likening Curran to ‘Becky with the good hair’.
But the 50-year-old said she was simply offering Jay-Z a drink and when she couldn’t hear what he wanted, she leaned over Beyoncé.
Curran said: ‘I have been cyber bullied and think it is very unfair. They were our guests last night. As a hostess, I offered her a drink and then him one as we don’t have floor service at our games. I had to lean in to hear what he wanted. That is it. No story. Just bullying.’
Curran said she has been receiving death threats over the incident and has since shut down her social media accounts over the abuse.
