She hasn’t had great experience at recent Met Galas.
And this year Beyonce is skipping Monday night’s star-studded soiree altogether after missing out on it last year due to the imminent arrival of her twins.
The 36-year-old hitmaker’s husband Jay-Z, 28, is taking her on vacation instead
Jay-Z surprised her with a trip because he felt she needed to relax before the tour,’ a source dished to ET, referring to the couple’s upcoming On The Run II tour.
The source added that Beyonce was planning to go in a custom-designed gown by Peter Dundas, who had been working for weeks on the creation.
In 2016, Beyonce went to the Met Gala solo without her wedding ring amid rumors of Jay’s infidelity.
Two years before, she was caught on video watching as her sister, Solange, 31, yelled, hit and kicked Jay in a hotel elevator.
Solange later apologized and she and the rapper-entrepreneur put out a joint statement saying that they ‘worked through it.’
Bey and Jay, who share children Blue Ivy, six, and 11-month-old twins Rumi and Sir, celebrated 10 years of marriage last month.
The Costume Institute fund-raiser, held every year at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art, is the fashion world’s biggest night, attracting high-powered players from the garment industry as well as Hollywood A-listers.
This year’s event will be hosted by Vanity Fair’s Anna Wintour plus co-chairs Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace.
The theme is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion And The Catholic Imagination, reflecting the name of the Met’s exhibition.
The showcase includes Papal cloaks and vestments with golden embroidery so fine it took nearly two decades to produce, plus crown-like tiaras encrusted with diamonds, emeralds and rubies.
