Seeing Jay Z and Beyoncé around Tribeca in New York used to be a fairly common sighting for their neighbours, given that the pair owned and live in a penthouse in the swanky suburb. However, in February of this year, the superstar couple were rumoured to have moved to Los Angeles with four-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. There was no explanation as to why the move occurred, however it has now been revealed that fellow A-lister and close friend Gwyneth Paltrow was part of the reason.

A source close to the pair told US Weekly that the move was so that Blue could be enrolled in a school that focused on the individual needs of toddlers (which reportedly costs Dhs70,000 a year). "Gwyneth was telling Jay and Bey about the quality of life for her kids in L.A. and really swayed [them] to make the move. It's all for Blue Ivy." 

The source also revealed that the pair is heavily involved in Blue's schooling life, saying, "One of them always picks her up and drops her off. Jay even goes to PTA meetings."
