US megastar, and new mum, Beyonce could be set for a massive pay deal, as husband Jay-Z is rumoured to be in negotiations to secure the star a $150million tour deal.

The rapper, who is set to hit the UK later this year alongside Kanye West as part of their 'Watch The Throne' tour, is said to have approached tour promoter Live Nation to discuss her plans to hit the road.

"Just weeks after the birth of Blue Ivy, Jay met with Live Nation to discuss a tour for Beyoncé," said a source to US newspaper, the New York Post. "He wanted a deal worth about $150million, but they countered with a lower offer."

Beyonce hinted earlier this year that she was considering a world tour, despite having recently given birth to first daughter, Blue Ivy, in January. She has also been named as a potential replacement for Nicole Scherzinger on the judging panel of X Factor USA, although this has been strongly denied by her father, Matthew Knowles.

"It would never happen as Beyoncé would never do that," Knowles revealed earlier this month. "There are a few things that she would never do and that is one. It's not for her."
