This week rumors began circulating that Beyonce was banned from the world famous Egyptian pyramids. According to The Independent, Dr. Hawass was taken aback by Bey’s tardiness and bad manners and asked her to leave.
“Most people I take on tours are very nice and we become friends. But this lady…She said she would come at 3pm but she came late. I said ‘You have to say I’m sorry I’m late’. But she didn’t open her mouth,” the Independent quotes Dr. Hawass.
“I brought a photographer and she also had a photographer and a guard,” he continued. “When my photographer started to shoot, he said ‘No, Stop! I am the one who says yes or no, not you.’ I said, ‘In that case since you almost hit my photographer and you are not polite, out! I am not giving you the privilege of having you on my tour.’ I said Beyoncé was stupid and I left,” the report continued.
Beyoncé’s response to E! News:
“This never happened,” her rep tells us. “The last time she was in Egypt was on tour in 2009. Nothing like this happened. Lies and more lies.”
