Buy The Island: Jay-Z Puts Millions Up For Beyonce, Private Vacation Spot

After being slammed for visiting Cuba, who can blame Jay-Z and Beyonce for looking for a private island. According to The Sun, Jay-Z has officially done more than look. He's actually put down around $2.6 million (USD) for an island in The Bahamas.

"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 told The Sun Wednesday. "A private island means they’ll be able to have quality time with minimum staff and security."

The only problem with the island is that it is said to have patchy phone reception and no satellite TV, but that could be a good thing if Jay, Beyonce and Blue Ivy just want to get away from everything and everybody.

A short flight from Miami, the island is in North Abaco.
