Jay Z and Beyonce 'buy London pad'
Jay Z and Beyonce have snapped up a London pad, according to reports.
The Daily Mirror said that the billionaire couple looked at properties in the Cotswolds as well as the capital before deciding on a detached £5.5 million property in west London.
The stars, who have announced a joint tour of US stadiums this summer, which could come to Britain in the autumn, apparently exchanged on the townhouse around a month ago.
A source was quoted as saying: "Both Jay and Beyonce are Anglophiles and have been toying with the idea of getting a pad for a couple of years now.
"On previous trips, they have stayed in five-star hotels and, on one occasion, a rented mansion. While money isn't an issue, it makes sense for them to have a more permanent base and get to know one particular area.
"They are coming to England this year and touring before the year is out."
