- Nicole Curran has responded to the viral video of her talking to Jay-Z while Beyoncé looks less than thrilled.
- Nicole explains she was simply asking for Jay-Z's drink order, and says she's been getting death threats due to the incident.
Chances are you had no idea who Nicole Curran was before yesterday, right? Yeah, well she's become a household name over night thanks to a viral video of Beyoncé looking all kinds of pissed about her talking to Jay-Z. And now Nicole is speaking out. But let's rewind for a sec.
On Wednesday night, Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z were spotted court-side at Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Oakland, and Twitter absolutely blew up over a clip of Jay chatting to Nicole, who was sitting next to Beyoncé. Mostly because she leaned right TF over Queen Bey to talk with Jay, and—judging from her facial expression and a well-placed nudge—Beyoncé wasn't pleased. The fan reaction was pretty intense, so here's just a taste:[instagram]https://www.instagram.com/p/ByXve6rhpil/[/instagram]
Nicole also talked to ESPN reporter Ramona Shelburne, confirming again that Bey and Jay were guests of her and her husband Joe Lacob (who owns the Golden State Warriors) and that their convo was completely innocent. "There was no hostility," she said. "I was trying to be a good hostess. I’ve never experienced cyber bullying like this. I can’t believe our players go through this. That kids go through this.“

Said she had been getting death threats on social media all night this morning she disabled her IG account just to make it stop.— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) June 6, 2019
Curran said she had no idea anything was even amiss until she got home and started seeing texts from friends and checked her social media. She’s invited Jay Z and Beyoncé to the game 3-4 times before. Last night she says she asked if they wanted drinks. Beyoncé asked for water— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) June 6, 2019
Curran says she then went to go get them those drinks. “There was no hostility. I was trying to be a good hostess,” she said. “I’ve never experienced cyber bullying like this. I can’t believe our players go through this. That kids go through this.“— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) June 6, 2019
