Beyoncé, Jay-Z's Cuba Trip 'Examined By US Congress'
Pair questioned over whether they had permission from the US government...
Jay-Z could find themselves in a spot of bother for visiting Cuba in order to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary.
According to BBC News, the pair - who were spotted waving to fans from their hotel balcony in Havana - have come under scrutiny for visiting the communist country following a US economic embargo.
Americans are prevented from spending their cash in Cuba as the US view its government as an oppressive regime, with US residents only permitted to spend more than a day in Cuba if they have been granted a special licence.
Two Republican members of Congress have requested official information on whether the superstar couple had permission from the US government to travel to the Caribbean island.After Queen B and Jigga were spotted sight-seeing and meeting locals, Florida Congress members IIeana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart stated: "As you know, US law expressly prohibits the licensing of financial transactions for 'tourist activities' in Cuba.
"Cuba’s tourism industry is wholly state-controlled – therefore, US dollars spent on Cuban tourism directly fund the machinery of oppression that brutally represses the Cuban people."
The Metro reports that if Bey and Jay are found guilty of travelling there without permission, they could face fines of $250,000 (£164,000) or up to ten years behind bars.
Both Beyoncé and Jay-Z are yet to comment on the matter.
