A female drummer has accused Beyoncé of “extreme witchcraft,” casting “spells” on her, and killing her cat—and there’s a whole heap of people out there who are treating the bizarre accusations with the utmost seriousness.
The allegations have been made by Kimberly Thompson, a drummer who, in court documents obtained by The Blast, says she worked for Beyoncé for seven years and accuses her of “dark magic” and “magic spells of sexual molestation.”
Thompson, attributes to Bey the “loss of many jobs, theft of homes, the murder of my pet kitten, magic spells on my lovers, and numerous broken relationships,” and also alleges Beyoncé has been tapping her phones and controlling her finances.
Thompson performed with Beyoncé as part of an all-female band, has released several albums on her own record label, and has played with The 8G Band on Late Night With Seth Meyers.
Thompson’s request for a temporary restraining order was denied by a judge, but what is surprising about this story is the amount of people on social media who appear to be taking the accusations seriously.
Part of the reason why so many are ready to give time to these theories is that Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z have fed Illuminati conspiracy theories for years, in what many
believe to be a cynical effort to boost traffic.
The video “Apeshit,” for example, was filmed in the Louvre (ground zero for Illuminati theorists, thanks to The Da Vinci Code and its I.M. Pei-designed pyramidal entrance) and stuffed full of occult symbolism lass=”player-unavailable”><h1 class=error occurred.</h1>
