Boss Business! Beyonce On Verge Of Buying A Stake In The NBA
Beyonce‘s quest to take over the world continues.
More on what could be joining her empire after the jump…
Sources close to the songstress have revealed she is interested in purchasing an ownership stake in her hometown NBA team, the Houston Rockets.
The team’s current owner, Les Alexander, put the Rockets up for sale last month.
Considering Yonce and Jay Z are fans of the league, this wouldn’t be an unfamiliar move for the superstar.
The talented tandem has a loving history with the NBA that consist of cheering court side at the NBA Finals and also Hov’s minority stake in the Nets. Notably, Jigga was instrumental in the team’s move from New Jersey to his hometown Brooklyn, New York.
If Mrs. Carter chooses to purchase a stake in her hometown team, she will instantly elevate the Houston Rockets’ local and international marketing – which is already flourishing in broader regions such as China.
Beyond the marketing potential, the entertainment mogul would be joining other artists who have invested in sports, including Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Venus and Serena Williams (Miami Dolphins); Justin Timberlake (Memphis Grizzlies); Nelly (Charlotte Hornets); and Usher (Cleveland Cavaliers).
Bey’s other investments include WTRMLN WTR.
