Jay-Z and Beyonce Receiving Death Threats

Jay-Z and Beyonce are never in the press for doing anything negative, so we were shocked to hear this! Apparently the couple has been receiving death threats through the mail!

According to Bossip, a Detroit man named Leon Barrett was charged for sending letters to numerous celebrities, including Jay-Z and Beyonce, threatening to kill them.

Barrett reportedly signed his own signature on the majority of the letters, along with his home address. Talk about a dumbass! This investigation has been going on for two years now.

In a letter dated Aug. 18, 2007, Barrett said: "I'm getting ready to start killing some more people. Beyonce, Jay-Z, Jerome Bettis and Tune-up Man are the first 4 people I'm getting ready to kill."

Scary! Let’s lock this guy up before any real damage is done!
