We all thought Beyonce could do no wrong, but apparently she has gotten herself in trouble in Egypt because of her untoward behaviour. B, what are you playing at?! According to the man known as Egypt’s Indiana Jones, Beyonce showed up for a tour and was ridiculously rude, to the point where the man abruptly banned her from any future tours with himself. We know you’re a diva Queen B, but save it for the stage!

Beyonce appears to have taken a leaf out of Rihanna's book by causing a whole bunch of controversy while on holiday.

Last month RiRi was thrown out of a mosque in Abu Dhabi for an unauthorised photoshoot and now Queen Bey has reportedly been “banned” from the pyramids in Egypt on account of her “stupid and rude behaviour.”

According to the man known as Egypt’s Indiana Jones, controversial archaeologist Zahi Hawess, Beyonce showed up for a tour of the pyramids with Hawess but made a poor first impression by showing up late, then things went from bad to worse.

Talking to The Independent, the 66-year-old said: “Most people I take on tours are very nice and we become friends. But this lady…

"She said she would come at 3pm but she came late. I said ‘You have to say I’m sorry I’m late’. But she didn’t open her mouth.”

Beyonce! Good manners cost nothing, and even if they did you would definitely be able to afford them!

However, apparently the final straw was when Beyonce’s photographer allegedly almost hit Zahi, who was Egypt’s former head of antiquities, which is when things got really nasty.

He said: “I brought a photographer and she also had a photographer and a guard. When my photographer started to shoot, he said “No, stop! I am the one who says yes or no, not you!”

Apparently this was the final straw for Zahi, who by then had decided that Beyonce was the best thing he never had (terrible pun, we're sorry).

He continued: “I said: ‘In that case since you almost hit my photographer and you are not polite – out! I am not giving you the privilege of having you on my tour!‘ I said Beyonce was stupid and I left.”

It sounds like it was more Beyonce’s photographer than the Queen B herself, but maybe we’re making up excuses because we love her so much!

Especially now that she has recently released a new single all about her daughter, Blue Ivy, called God Made You Beautiful. Who are we kidding, Beyonce's still the best!

Beyonce’s rep has also denied the claim, saying: “This never happened. The last time she was in Egypt was on tour in 2009. Nothing like this happened. Lies and more lies.”
