    Jay-Z’s bodyguards had to step in and rescue Beyonce Knowles after a drunken festivalgoer started yelling at the megastar at the Hackney Weekend, according to reports.

    Beyoncé joined her friends in the 50,000-strong crowd as her husband, Jay-Z, gave a mind-blowing performance on Saturday night, but when a drunken reveller allegedly started to verbally abuse the singer, members of Jay-Z’s entourage had to moveBeyoncé out of the way.

    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.
