A source told the Daily Star: ‘Whatever was said, it really upset Beyoncé. Jay-Z’s bodyguards weren’t going to have any of it. They waded in and there was a massive ruckus.

‘It got pretty ugly and Beyoncé was whisked away so she wouldn’t get caught in the middle of it.’

The 30-year-old didn’t let the incident spoil her fun and was spotted in front of stage singing and moshing along with the crowd to Jay-Z’s headline set, during which he was joined by Rihanna, M.I.A. and Kanye West.
