Another celebrity couple poised for high asset divorce?

The New York Post is reporting that sources allege the marriage of celebrity superstar couple Jay Z and Beyoncé may be on the rocks.

The New York City native and rapper formerly known as Shawn Carter may soon discover he has more than 99 problems if he tries to disentangle his substantial assets from those of his equally successful wife's if they do indeed proceed with what is surely a very high net worth divorce.

Complicating matters even further, the two are both on tour together on their extensively promoted "On the Run" tour. The source alleges that the two have already received from tour promoters most of the revenue their appearances will generate.

The super duo is expected to earn millions on this tour, which may wind up being their last if reports are correct. They have a young daughter, Blue Ivy, and the source says Beyoncé was even contemplating having another baby, but that appears to now be off the table entirely.

Rumors of other dalliances have surrounded the rapper in the past, but he seems to be trying to keep his family together now. There are reportedly marriage counselors trying to salvage their relationship who are hitting the road with them as they make appearances all over the country.

The source also noted that, "[t]here are no rings, if you haven't noticed," and that when the birth of their daughter failed to rekindle their romance, "Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey."

When couples with extensive co-mingled business or personal assets divorce, dividing the marital property is a complex matter best left up to legal professionals who are often assisted by forensic financial analysts to determine the true value of all assets.
