The Carters may be getting back in the NBA business as Beyoncé is reportedly set to invest in the Houston Rockets, her hometown’s professional basketball team, according to Bloomberg News.
No one from the singer’s camp or the team have yet commented on the possibility.
Current Rockets owner Leslie Alexander announced last month that he’s seeking to sell his controlling share in the team, according to Sports Illustrated. Forbes valued the team at $1.65 billion in February.
This wouldn’t be Beyoncé’s first foray into the world of sports. Her husband JAY-Z owned a small portion of the Brooklyn Nets from 2004 to 2013.
Beyoncé would be joining a long list of celebrities who have invested in sports. Justin Timberlake owns a piece of the Memphis Grizzlies, his own hometown’s NBA squad. Meanwhile, tennis players Venus and Serena Williams, as well as Jennifer Lopez and her ex-husband Marc Anthony, are investors in football’s Miami Dolphins. Will Ferrell has a stake in Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Football Club.
