: Looks like the Beyonce age controversy has started ONCE AGAIN. While Beyonce and her camp have been steadfast in claiming that the bootylicious diva is 27 years old, MediaTakeOut.com has been hearing whispers from insiders speculating that Beyonce Knowles was at least 5 years older than that.
Well now actress Gabrielle Union is throwing fuel on the fire. In an interview with the blog The Boots Girls, Gabby claimed to have been a teenager at the same time as Beyonce.
The trouble is that Gabrielle is 36 years old!!! Here's what was said:
Boots Girls: One of your co-stars [in the movie Cadillac Records] is Beyonce. How was it working with her?
Gabrielle Union: Beyonce and I have been friends since we were teenagers. We go to the same hairstylist now and you know how those bonds are! B is such a polite, nurturing person and a joy to work with. It’s easy to work with her because she is a good friend of mine.
Let's do a little math. Gabrielle Union was born in 1972 - so her teenage years were officially from 1985 to 1991.
But with Beyonce claiming to have been born in 1981 - that would have made her only 10 years old when Gabrielle Union was 19.
Gabby - you know you done fukked up girl, right. Expect a call from Mathew Knowles this afternoon. You know ... to straighten things out
