Jay-Z set to purchase a private island for $3million
The 31-year-old rapper is looking for a secluded spot he can call home
with wife Beyoncé Knowles and their one-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
According to UK newspaper The Sun, he plans to splash out $3 million
on his own piece of land in the North Abaco district of The Bahamas.
Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson, who famously owns Necker Island in
the British Virgin Islands, is said to be his inspiration.
'Jay's been looking for a private island for the family. He's getting
it partly to mark their fifth wedding anniversary but also, with Bey
back in the spotlight, it's getting impossible for them to do normal
things such as go to the beach with Blue,' a source said.
'A private island means they'll be able to have quality time with
minimum staff and security.'
Beyoncé and Jay-Z married in April 2008 and since then their stars
have risen to meteoric heights.
Jay is preparing for a summer tour with Justin Timberlake in North
America while his superstar wife is launching her own world tour later
The couple were mobbed on a trip to Cuba just last week as they
celebrated their fifth anniversary in Havana.
