Beyonce and Jay-Z buy London home

Beyonce and her rapper hubby Jay-Z are moving in to a plush house in west London.

The superstar couple will be spending so much time in the UK they've decided it's time to stop splashing out on five star hotels and rent a five-bedroom house in the capital.

Beyonce reportedly found the property. They'll live in a prestigious neighbourhood, with the likes of Simon Cowell, Richard Branson, and Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow also living in the area.

'Both Jay-Z and Beyonce are going to be spending a lot of time in London over the next few months. Jay is over here for his [tour] and Beyonce will be launching her perfume in Europe over the summer.

'They wanted to have somewhere more homely now they are parents,' a source said.

The couple became parents for the first time in January after Beyonce gave birth to their daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
