In 2017, Jay-Z and Beyoncé purchased an impressive $88 million Bel Air mansion after relocating their family from New York.
The massive property features six fascinating structures that give the power couple more than 30,000 square feet of living space.
It is equipped with a lavish pool, basketball court, and 10,000 square feet of outdoor living space.
Jay-Z and his wife are very private people who work diligently to keep their family life away from the public eye, which is why not many people have seen their stunning home. That is until now.
Beyoncé’s nephew, Daniel “Julez” J. Smith Jr., recently celebrated his 16th birthday in her mansion, and a few photos and videos have surfaced, showing the interior, her and Jay-Z’s pricey collection of vintage and exotic cars.
Fans also got a glimpse of the breathtaking pool and the scenery around the property. While Beyoncé is never seen in the videos, she can be heard acting like a real aunt who wants a photo with her nephew.
Beyoncé said in the clip: “I wanted to get a picture of Julez with his cake by himself.”
Two of Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s children — Blue Ivy and Rumi — are briefly seen near Julez’s birthday cake.
According to a person close to the billionaire duo, they decided to host the birthday party at their Bel Air mansion for this sweet reason: “Beyoncé and Jay wanted to do something special for Julez’s 16th birthday because of everything going on with the pandemic, so they invited the entire family over to their Bel Air home to celebrate the milestone occasion.”
The family friend went on to explain: “She knew [Julez] couldn’t be with his friends because of the pandemic; Beyoncé loves Julez with all her heart saw it was important to her for their family to be together.”
The pal added: “The celebration actually ended up being better than something over the top with a ton of people because it gave them an opportunity to spend quality family time together, just hang out, relax, and not stress over the details or try to impress anyone with putting on an elaborate event. It was a great time for everybody.”
Beyoncé has some big plans for her nephew once the pandemic is over, according to the friend who shared: “When [the pandemic] is all over and it’s safe to do so, she plans to throw him the birthday party of his dreams.”
The pop music superstar is also said to be doing some activism behind the scenes.
