Childcare costs are a serious concern for most families in these economic times, but when we’re talking about pop-culture power couple Jay-Z and BeyoncÃ©… well, thatâ€™s another matter. The two reportedly dished out a lofty $1 million to rent nursery space forÂ Blue Ivy Carter at the Brooklyn Netsâ€™ home ground, the Barclays Arena, in Brooklyn, New York.
As with most things, itâ€™s all about perspective. A recent Forbes report states, combined Jay-Z and BeyoncÃ© earned $78 million in a 12 month period. So after all, $1 million is merely a drop in the bucket, when it comes to a workplace nursery for little Blue Ivy.
According to ContactMusic.com:, â€œJay Z rents a luxurious basement suite at the arena, which he has kitted out with plenty of toys for Blue Ivy. The basement space isnâ€™t just a kidsâ€™ area, though. It seems to be something of an adultsâ€™ playground too. Apparently the suite is â€˜all glass with a champagne bar and TV screen. Jay lets friends use his digs when heâ€™s not there,â€ a source told US Magazine.â€™â€
