Jay-Z Supports Beyonce By Going On Strict Healthy Diet

Bey and Jay

By Zachary Swickey

Jigga man Jay-Z may have 99 problems but chivalry ain’t one – the rap superstar is showing his support his pregnant wifey Beyonce by joining her on a strict dieting regimen.

A source tells Us Weekly that the duo have been maintaining a “partially vegan diet,” which will surely help Queen B get her notably drool-worthy physique back after her baby is delivered. (No one’s exactly sure when she’s due, but our best guess is early in the New Year.)

Discussing Hova’s new vegan-centric diet, the source states, “Jay’s trying to be disciplined, and he needs the energy to support her.”

Beyonce previously talked to “20/20″ about her eating habits, saying, “I’ve been really conscious [about food]. I’ve been trying my best not to lose control!”

The source also adds to Us that the couple were “dancing up a storm” at The Spare Room gaming lounge at the Hollywood Roosevelt – partying ‘til 4 AM, while Jay blows off steam from his monumental Watch the Throne tour with chum Kanye West.

It’s been quite the year for Jay with the wild success of Watch the Throne – his joint album with his partner-in-crime West. The disc has been nominated for a Grammy in the Best Rap Album category with the duo also picking up a nom for Best Rap Performance for the track “Otis.” Of course, their biggest jam, “N**gas in Paris,” – which they performed a total of 26 times over 3 nights at the Staples Center in Los Angeles – just took the No. 8 spot on MTV’s first Best Songs of the Year list, while also coming in at No. 4 on the Best Artists of the Year list. What else can you expect when the two biggest powerhouses of rap combine forces?

Beyonce had no problem basking in the limelight either this year. While some critics weren’t feeling the R&B nature of her newest album, 4, most of them were still loving it as much as we do. Of course, she also made our Best Artist list coming three spots behind her hubby at No. 7. You’d think a pregnancy might be a career setback or incite a momentary lull in productivity, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with Bey, who dropped a whopping seven music videos this year alone.
