Beyoncé And Jay Z Moving To London? Couple Have Reportedly Bought A £5.5 Million Townhouse

Beyoncé and Jay Z have reportedly bought a £5.5 million home in London and are planning to make the move across the pond to the UK.

The superstar couple scouted a number of swish pads in London and the Cotswolds before settling on a suitably glamorous “detached property in West London”, according to The Mirror.

Beyoncé and her husband - who have 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy together - are apparently big fans of the UK and have spent the last few years considering the move.

“Both Jay and Beyoncé are Anglophiles and have been toying with the idea of getting a pad for a couple of years now,” a source told the paper. “On previous trips, they have stayed in five star hotels and, on one occasion, a rented mansion.

“While money isn’t an issue, it makes sense for them to have a more permanent base and get to know one particular area.”

The hip-hop power couple are reportedly planning a huge joint tour of the US for this summer - though dates have not been confirmed - and UK fans are hoping the pair perform together here in the Autumn.

Mr and Mrs Carter already have plenty of pals in London, including the recently 'uncoupled' Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, and Rita Ora, who is signed to Jay’s record label.

The pair recently enjoyed a rare vacation and Beyoncé shared a number of super cute snaps on her Tumblr page.

However the ‘XO’ singer attracted attention for the wrong reasons with one photo, which sparked speculation over whether Bey had photoshopped her own thighs.
