Beyonce doesn’t know what a “No phone zone” is and she obviously never signed Oprah Winfrey’s pledge! According to a report, the singer was pulled over on June 23rd by the NYPD and was cited for texting while driving.
“Beyonc? was really embarrassed because she only recently got her driver’s license,” revealed a source. In an effort to get out of the situation, the Texas native is said to have tried to use her celebrity status to avoid receiving a ticket.
“She tried to charm that cop and told him she had no idea that texting while driving was against the law,” said the insider. But it seems that being Beyonc? wasn’t enough to keep her out of hot water. “He had no idea who she was. He just slapped her with the ticket, which was worth more than $100!”
Earlier this year it was reported that Beyonc?’s hubby, Jay-Z, gave her driving lessons to help her pass her road test, but it appears he may have forgotten to stress one important thing: texting while driving is against the law.
Faced with the thought of that whopping $100 ticket, I’m sure Bey has learned her lesson and will never do it again…. womp womp!
