A private never-before-seen photo of the three Carter children was leaked on social media this week, reports Buzzfeed News. Considering how private Beyoncé and Jay-Z are, especially when it comes to their family, this is quite an invasion. The photo has since been removed, but the Beyhive is still on the hunt for whoever was behind it.
According to Buzzfeed News, the photo in question was a framed black-and-white shot of Blue Ivy posing with the twins against a backdrop of wildflowers. The publication also notes that the framed photo appeared to be hanging on a wall, which suggests someone may have taken the photo inside the Carter home. The image was posted via Hollywood Unlocked’s Instagram on Wednesday afternoon and attributed to Freeish Media. They have since removed it, as requested by the Carter’s management team.
Hollywood Unlocked’s owner Jason Lee told Buzzfeed News, “We received a photo of Beyoncé’s children via an anonymous source and posted the image believing that it had already been posted by the Carters.” Interestingly enough, Freeish Media’s post, which is now also gone, showed a screenshot of a tweet from a user who goes by @713yonce. However, the former Beyoncé fan account has been deleted as well.
Since the leak, the Beyhive has been working hard to figure out who this mysterious Twitter user is and how they accessed a personal photo of Beyoncé’s children. But so far, no leads or news has surfaced.
It remains to be seen what will come of the incident and if the Carters will come forward with a statement. In the meantime, let this serve as a reminder to never post someone else’s photos without getting consent first.
