The pair sat courtside in the ORACLE Arena in Oakland during the big game and cheered on the Golden State Warriors as they took on the Toronto Raptors.
The superstar couple waved to fans, smiled for the cameras and generally seemed to have a great time as they took in the game, and chatted with other super-wealthy ticket holders in the seats next to them.
Beyonce was really feeling her look as she later posted several photos to Instagram of her oufit.
In fact, one particular interaction seemed to generate the most attention when the woman sitting next to them leaned in front of Beyonce to chat up Jay-Z.
According to the “Sorry” singer’s devoted legion of fans, Beyonce gave the woman “a look” and the Beyhive attacked en mass.
“I would leave the earth if Beyonce looked this ready to smack me,” one Twitter user wrote, sharing a video of the interaction.
Another user angrily tweeted, “What the f**k were you trying to ask him? The f**k was so important Becky??????? WHAT WAS THE REASON!”
The question was met with a plethora supportive responses in the form of hundreds of bee emojis posted by particularly devoted fans.
What seems to have escaped many people who felt like throwing shade at the woman trying to get Jay-Z’s attention is that she’s not just a random person sitting in the front row of one of the biggest games of the year.
Her name is Nicole Curran, she’s the wife of Joe Lacob, the billionaire owner of the Golden State Warriors who was also seated alongside his wife in the seats next to Beyonce, 37, and Jay-Z, 49.
Curran has since taken to Instagram to share a snap of her and Bey, alongside the caption: “We should all help and support each other.”
According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, Curran later revealed she had to disable her social media accounts after receiving death threats from Beyonce fans.
Either way, it wasn’t a great night for the Warriors all around, as they ended up losing Game 3 to the Raptors 123 to 109.
