From all that, it’s bound to catch up to you, as Holm found herself in an awkward moment with Beyoncé last weekend.
According to Page Six, it all went down at the Miguel Cotto and Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez fight Saturday night (Nov. 21) in Las Vegas. Holm and her husband, Jeff Kirkpatrick, were among a select few who check out the bout in a D’Ussé VIP lounge at the Mandalay Bay.
Turns out, Jay Z, whose Roc Nation Sports reps Cotto, and Beyoncé were in the lounge as well. After the rap mogul congratulated Holm on her victory over Rousey, she introduced him to Kirkpatrick.
“Jay was like, ‘This is my wife,’” turning to Beyoncé, a spy told Page Six.
It was then that things entered the awkward zone.
Beyoncé told Holm, “I’m B,” Beyoncé told Holm, who turned around and asked ‘What’s your name?’ ”
Upon getting word from her husband that it was Beyoncé, Holm apologized and said told the singer, “I want to put my foot in my mouth right now. Of course, I know who you are.”
Although Cotto ended up losing the fight, Jay Z remained positive when going into the locker room, telling the boxer that he had a great fight, Page Six reports. Still, the rhymesayer did take a loss in the form of a $100,000 charity wager he made on the bout with Álvarez’s backer, Oscar De La Hoya.
As a result, Jay Z donated the money to the White Memorial Medical Center’s cancer unit
