Beyonce Knowles has reportedly bought two new apartments in one of New York's most prestigious apartment blocks - to be near to boyfriend Jay-Z.

The DESTINY'S CHILD star has bought two swanky spaces in the 55-storey ONE BEACON COURT building - for a staggering $8 million (GBP4.4 million), according to society magazine GOTHAM.

Beyonce plans to turn the two apartments into one big home with four bedrooms.

The singer also owns homes in Miami Beach, Florida, and her native Houston, Texas.
