Nicole Curran Reacts after Beyhive Hounds Her Following Beyoncé Courtside Incident
Golden States Warriors’ owner Joe Lacob’s wife, Nicole Curran, who has been under attack by the Beyhive, has now revealed details about what really happened on Wednesday night between her, Jay-Z, and Beyoncé.
It all started after a video emerged showing Curran leaning across Beyoncé to speak with Jay-Z several times during Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Warriors and the Toronto Raptors at the Oracle Arena.
In the short clip, the “Lemonade” singer appeared offended, seemingly pinning Curran with a masked glare and slightly shoving her towards the end.

CYBER ATTACK ON NICOLE CURRAN
The footage went viral in no time and Beyoncé’s fans, known for going to extreme lengths in defending the pop star, unleashed a torrent of threats and negative comments on Curran. They stormed her Instagram page, which has now been deactivated, with tons of bee emojis and verbal attacks.
Beyoncé, 37, also seemed to stoke the controversy with a passive-aggressive move. She shared pictures and videos of her and Jay-Z, 49, sitting courtside at the game and made sure to crop Curran out. Swipe left to see the cropped parts.
Before turning off comments and eventually deactivating her Instagram page, Curran clapped back at the Beyhive trolls in a comment captured by The Shade Room:
“Listen Beehive. I respect Queen B. I love her! I talked to her husband twice tonight. First, to take a drink order for them both when they arrived as they were our guests. Second, to explain why I gave his wife a rose from a fan. All of this has been taken out of context. I am a happily married woman. Telling me to kill myself?????? Somehow I don’t think she would support this.”
“The fact that [Beyoncé] doesn’t say anything about how nasty her fans are makes me feel a way about her,” wrote an Instagram user in the comments.
“I don’t know who needs to hear this,” added another. “BEYONCÉ AIN’T GOD!!!!!”
NICOLE OFFERS MORE EXPLANATION
Curran later spoke with ESPN reporter Ramona Shelburne, revealing that she “had been getting death threats on social media” since the night of the incident and had to disable her Instagram account the next morning.
“Curran says Jay Z asked for a vodka soda. She asked if he wanted lime with that. But it was loud in Oracle, and she couldn’t hear, so she leaned over,” Shelburne relayed as part of a tweet series. “That’s where the photos of Beyoncé looking askance at her come from.”
“There was no hostility. I was trying to be a good hostess,” Curran told Shelburne. “I’ve never experienced cyber bullying like this. I can’t believe our players go through this. That kids go through this.”
So far, neither Beyoncé nor Jay-Z has addressed the incident.
