Wife Of Warriors Owner, Nicole Curran, Posted This Message To BeyHive Fans After Viral 'Becky' Video

Nicole Curran, wife of Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob, alleged members of the Beyhive sent her death threats after a video of her talking to Jay-Z, 49, as Beyoncé, 37, sat between them went viral.

Beyonce's less-than-enthusiastic-looking reaction to her husband's conversation with Curran during the Warriors-Raptors game went viral Wednesday with Twitter users writing posts like "Beyoncé don't like that girl beside her at all" and "How dare her talk across Beyoncé". She also revealed she had to make her Instagram private after receiving a bunch of death threats from Beyonce fans.

Curran was getting Beyonce and Jay-Z's drink orders - Bey asked for water, Jay asked for a vodka soda. "Give her a hug.' That's a woman that reached out to me, I don't know, one more once and said, 'I'm doing a surprise birthday for JAY, you gotta be there.' That's a friend".

In response, Beyonce's publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, shared a "Throwback Thursday" photo of the couple during their On the Run II tour, and used it as an opportunity to remind fans that their queen has always preferred to lead with love instead of hate.

"Just spoke to Nicole Curran, the wife of Warriors owner Joe Lacob, about the "incident" with Beyoncé last night", Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.com tweeted.

She added: "I've never experienced cyber bullying like this". She asked if he wanted lime with that.

The woman isn't just some random fan, though. "That kids go through this", she said. According to the internet, Beyonce was some version of "not having it", based on her at-worst bemused expression. Every single day on that tour I saw love.
