Looks like Beyonce ignored the “No Phone Zone” pledge that day-time talk show host Oprah Winfrey created earlier this year. According to a report, the pop singer was pulled over last month (June 23) by the NYPD for texting while driving.
“Beyoncé was really embarrassed because she only recently got her driver’s license,” revealed a source. In an effort to get out of the situation, the Texas native is said to have used her celebrity status to avoid receiving a ticket.
“She tried to charm that cop and told him she had no idea that texting while driving was against the law,” said the insider. But it seems that being Beyoncé wasn’t enough to keep her out of hot water. “He had no idea who she was. He just slapped her with the ticket, which was worth more than $100!”
Earlier this year it was reported that Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z, gave her driving lessons to help her pass her road test, but looks like he may have forgotten to stress one important thing: texting while driving is against the law.
