“Gwyneth adores both Beyoncé and Jay-Z, so it’s not like she’s taking sides. But her main words of advice have been to take things slowly and to not rush into making any drastic decisions.”

Gwyneth, who has two children with Coldplay frontman Chris, is also said to have advised Beyoncé to concentrate on her family life “away from the public eye”.

“She thinks Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and of course [their daughter] Blue Ivy, need alone time far away from the public eye to just chill and get grounded,” the source added.

Beyoncé has been posting images on her Instagram page which appear to show her on holiday with two-year-old Blue – but without Jay-Z.
