Wife of Golden State Warriors Owner Says She Got Death Threats Over Beyonce Encounter

By now everyone has seen the infamous exchange between Nicole Curran, the wife of the Golden State Warriors Owner and Jay Z and Beyonce.

According to ESPN Reporter Ramona Shelburne, Curran said Jay-Z asked for a vodka soda and she asked if he wanted a lime with that. But, as one would expect, it was very loud in the arena, so she leaned over so she could hear him better. Curran says she then got Jay-Z his drink and Beyoncé hers (she only wanted water).

“There was no hostility. I was trying to be a good hostess,” Curran told Shelburne. “I’ve never experienced cyberbullying like this. I can’t believe our players go through this. That kids go through this.”

She says she was forced to delete her Instagram page after getting death threats from crazed Beyoncé fans.


Beyonce’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, subtly responded to the news in an Instagram post encouraging the Beyhive to show love “to every human.”
