Beyoncé's reaction to a woman who tried to talk to Jay-Z while the couple were watching a basketball game has gone viral.
WATCH: Beyoncé's furious reaction when a woman leans across her to chat with Jay-Z
The incident occurred when music royalty Beyoncé, 37, and Jay-Z, 49, were front row at a NBA finals game in Oakland, California on Wednesday.
The superstar couple, who tied the knot in 2008, had courtside seats next to Joe Lacob, the owner of the Golden State Warriors who were playing at the time, and his wife, Nicole Curran.
In the video Nicole is seen leaning across Bey to talk to her husband, Jay-Z, just before the couple wave to someone off camera.
After a few moments, Nicole leans back across, seemingly to the annoyance of Queen Bee.
When their brief chat ends, Beyoncé shifts in her seat, almost as a sign of setting a boundary.
Since the encounter went viral, Beyoncé fans found Nicole's Instagram page, and flooded her account with bee emojis.
Nicole has now spoken out to explain her side of the story with ESPN reporter Ramona Shelburne, explaining she had been “getting death threats on social media all night” and as a result, she’s decided to deactivate her Instagram account.
She explained the interaction was completely harmless. Jay-Z and Beyoncé had been to games countless times, so on Wednesday night, she offered them drinks as they were her guests, she told the reporter.
Beyoncé asked for water while the rapper asked for a vodka soda, she explained.
That’s when she said she asked if Jay-Z “wanted a lime with that.”
However, the arena was so loud that she couldn’t hear, so she leaned over Beyoncé to catch what Jay-Z had said.
“I was just trying to be a good hostess,” Nicole told Ramona. “I’ve never experienced cyber bullying like this.”
