Man Stabbed Because He Didn’t Know Jay-Z and Beyoncé Are Married

2012 is off to a violent start.

According to Cleveland’s Fox 8, a 48-year-old man from Garfield Heights, Ohio, was knifed by another man, 31-year-old Parma-resident Ronald Deaver, simply for not knowing that Beyoncé’s is married — and expected a baby with — Jay-Z.

Deaver was arrested and charged with felonious assault for allegedly stabbing the man following an argument that began because the victim did not know that B’s husband is Jay. The alleged stabbing occurred around 11 p.m. on December 31, 2011, outside Deaver’s apartment.

Det. Compton says the police were called following the stabbing and the victim was taken to a local hospital. He is currently listed in good condition.

Police attempted to locate Deaver at his apartment, but according to the report, Jennifer Fornari, 31, told officers that Deaver no longer lived there. Deaver was located by police a short time later; Fornari was arrested on an obstructing of justice charge. —Gina Montana
