"Never Disrespect The Queen B By Leaning Over Her": Stephanie Mills Defends Beyoncé Over Courtside Drama
Mills’ response has since received responses from Erykah Badu and singer-songwriter Tank.
Since a video of Nicole Curran, the wife of Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob, leaning over Beyoncé to talk to Jay-Z has gone viral, Curran has said she’s received death threats and even deleted her Instagram over the clip, which appears to show an agitated and annoyed Beyoncé.
Curran has since shared that she was asking Jay-Z if he wanted a lime in his vodka soda after he had asked for a drink. The Warriors had invited him and Beyoncé to their Wednesday night game.

“There was no hostility,” Curran told ESPN‘s Ramona Shelburne. “I was trying to be a good hostess.”
Still, some haven’t let Curran slide, including Stephanie Mills. The singer took to Instagram to share the following post.

Nicole Curran, what can I say, you are the wife to an NBA team owner and Beyoncé, is the wife of a billionaire, Jay-Z. Why are you leaning across the Queen B allegedly asking about a fucking lime. I’m sure with all the noise in the arena you could have simply asked his beautiful wife what her husband wanted in his vodka soda. FYI: little nasty Nicki, NEVER disrespect the Queen B by leaning over her. I think they’ve been married long enough for her to know what he likes in his drinks after all she is Mrs. Sean Carter😊
Mills’ response has received over 2,500 comments, with some supporting her while others are against the post.
“Yes I agree. If bey was really agitated,” Erykah Badu wrote.
“You are legendary.. your caption is not.. with all due respect..,” singer-songwriter and actor Tank commented.
“Dag Stephanie….that lady didn’t do anything wrong, y’all be reaching and making assumptions….it is not that serious, my goodness. My people,” another user wrote.
Since the incident, Beyoncé’s publicist has asked the singer’s fanbase, commonly known as the Beyhive, to stop bullying Curran.
