When you’re as busy as Beyonce and Jay-Z, and parents to three kids, time is the most valuable commodity. Even when you’re on vacation and, technically, you have all the time in the world.
So, the duo took a break from their 4th of July extended vacation in the Hamptons to go on a lunch date in Brooklyn, New York City, the Daily Mail reports. They hit up the Lucali pizza restaurant where, based on Beyonce’s social media, they had wine, fruit and ice cream.
The distance between the Hamptons and Brooklyn can be covered in some 2.5 hours by car, and this is perhaps the most striking aspect about their helicopter ride. But the heart wants what it wants, and if chilled cherries was what Bey and Jay’s wanted, who are we to argue with it.
The couple are famous for their eccentric buys and lavish gestures, as one would expect, given they’re worth a combined $1.9 billion. Recent reports claim that they bought the first of the three Boat Tail coachbuilt vehicles from Rolls-Royce, which is priced at $28 million and, as such, is the most expensive new car in the world.
That wasn’t even their most outrageous addition to what one assumes is an impressive collection: back in 2012, Beyonce bought a private jet as a present for Jay-Z on Father’s Day. She paid $40 million for a Bombardier Challenger 850, with 15-person capacity, its own kitchen and living room, and two full bathrooms. To paraphrase Jay himself, he’s got 99 problems but uninspired presents ain’t one.
