Aww…Is Beyoncé the Best Sister Ever? She Allegedly put down $140,000 for Solange’s Honeymoon Trip in Brazil



Beyonce-Knowles-Solange-December-2014-BellaNaija001Beyoncé might just be the best sister ever.

There is no doubt that Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and her sister Solange Knowles are very close and over the years they have continued to show the world a united front.

So it should come as no surprise that Queen Bey was willing to put down about $140,000 for Solange’s honeymoon with her husband Alan Ferguson.

The couple got married a few weeks ago (click here if you missed it) and enjoyed a quaint honeymoon in Brazil (click here if you missed it).

According to a source on British magazine Heat, “Beyoncé also gifted Solange private first-class travel, a chartered boat tour and personally-catered meals. It was Bey’s way of saying, ‘I’m sorry,’ after all the bad blood between Jay and Solange. And, of course, she’s thrilled that her sister got the wedding and man of her dreams. She wants the whole family to move on to happier times.”

According to the Independent, “It’s not the first time Beyoncé has given a present involving food. Last month it was reported that she’d lavished her former Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland with a $250,000 private chef to celebrate the arrival of Kelly’s first child, son Titan, with her husband Tim Witherspoon. Beyoncé also arranged for a hand-painted cot to be created for Titan. It boasts his name in gold and came with a $50,000 price tag. That would be enough for most people, but the superstar singer also picked out a suit and leather jacket by Versace for $260 and Louis Vuitton diaper bag worth $2,200.”

A number of people on social media have frowned on the fact that Solange’s honeymoon was allegedly paid for by her sister – so we have to ask, is it a wrong move?

What do you think?

    The wedding couldnt have cost US$140k so where and how did the honeymoon cost that much? Did they travel with a spacecraft? Or is ordinary Brazil now located on the moon? People just throw these ridiculous numbers around – like any of it makes any sense. US$140k to travel after what was essentially an all white party with 20 people in attendance…………………

      You talking about ol foxtrot? Above☝foxtrot is an idiot… Cuz if only you knew how much a private jet cost along with a special boat ride and catered food plus tips… That shit adds up and it’s in Brazil… People should think before they speak!!! I think it’s very nice of Yonce’ to do that for her sis…

    With the sort of career Solange has, it stands to reason that the only luxuries she’ll have are those paid for by others.Thankfully, her only sibling has extra-ordinarily deep pockets.

    So if they are getting married and beyonce foots the honeymoon fiesta, they would decline abi? do you know how many people will sign on to “BEYONCE FOOT YOUR HONEYMOON EXPENSES” if it were to be a reality show?

    It’s not bad to gift your sister a honeymoon but how bout helping her career. How bout doing a track with her so she can also attain some fortune like you have. That’s why u luke Kim. She single handedly carried the whole family along and everyone has one business venture or the other. Yes single handedly cos if not for her scandal, the Kardashian name would be nothing. Beyonce needs to help people grow not just give handouts. As big as she is no record label to discover new talent for younger women. Guess she wants to reign alone

      @mostest Solange is not on Beyoncé’s level but it’s obvious from your comment you don’t know anything about Solange’s career.

    • LaTonya Rhodes

      December 17, 2014 at 5:27 pm

      That was the dumbest comment…if you knew Solange or followed her career, thenyou would know that Solange owns her own record label, just received a deal to design athletic shoes, and has stated numerous times that she is her own person who wants to be seen seperate from her sister…just because you don’t see someone in the forefront, doesn’t mean their sitting waiting for handouts…p.s. by the way it was a wedding gift to jer sister…not a handout!

      Also to that comment it’s a stupid statement cuz beyonce has tried to get on songs with her sister but her sister doesn’t want to do it, do some research plus she has more money than y’all think she is a song writer she wrote some of beyonce biggest hits and other stars again do ur research and stop just talking out of your ASS

    BN you forgot to dash Solange the name Ferguson but why? A whole married woman una no dash her husband’s name ABOMINATION of the highest order! Na your trademark be dat?

      If Bey paid for the honeymoon I see no big deal in that it could have been her gift to them. I look at it the same way couples who already had a fully furnished homes individually ask for cash gifts or ask their guests to chip into their honeymoon kitty since they do not need any items for their new home.

      Actually it is not fine in that what you wrote is gramatically incorrect – which you maybe don’t mind and that’s you’re prerogative.

    I don’t know why some of you guys keep insisting that solang is poor. She could have afforded her own honeymoon by herself. Her bet worth is at 5million + dollars, more than any of you wish to touch. Just because she isn’t in the lime light like her sister doesn’t mean that she isn’t making money, she is a singer-songwriter and even wrote some of Beyonce’s hits like leave the girl along. Her sister can girt her whatever, but don’t mistake Solange for poor she’s just humble.
