Someone shook the Beyhive with leak of an unreleased image of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s kids on social media Wednesday.

According to BuzzFeed News, the leak is a black-and-white photo showing Carter kids Blue Ivy, Sir, and Rumi. It’s uncertain how the photo ended up on social media, but it seems to be a private family photo from inside the Carter’s home as it’s framed on a wall.

Entertainment media company Hollywood Unlocked, reposted the image on Wednesday via Instagram. The company tagged another media company, Freeish Media, in the caption, citing it as the source.

“#HUBabyFever Aww #Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s kids, #BlueIvy, #SirCarter and #RumiCarter posted up together. via: freeishmedia” Hollywood Unlocked wrote in the caption of the now-deleted image.

Hollywood Unlocked told BuzzFeed News that a representative for Beyoncé asked that the image be taken down.

“We received a photo of Beyoncé’s children via an anonymous source and posted the image believing that it had already been posted by the Carters,” the Hollywood Unlocked statement read.”After receiving a call from Beyoncé’s representative and learning that the image was not authorized we immediately removed it from our platform out of respect for their privacy.”

Freeish Media posted a screenshot of the image from a now-deleted Beyoncé stan Twitter account, @713yonce.

The Beyhive isn’t too happy about the clear invasion of privacy.

“Y‘all leaking & spreading the pic of Blue Ivy and the twins is just disgusting. I‘m sure if Beyoncé wanted to share this with us she would‘ve via her Insta/Website. If you retweeted/ tweeted the picture please unrt/delete the tweet,” Twitter user @likeproperty wrote.

Many other tweets voiced similar concerns.

The Carters are notoriously private people, and Beyoncé’s management team is known for scrubbing the internet of any and all unauthorized Beyoncé-content.

There is a lot of buzz within the Beyhive this week. Beyoncé is also reportedly coming out with new music and a Netflix documentary all about her legendary 2018 Coachella performance, according to US Weekly.

The Daily Dot has reached out to Hollywood Unlocked and Freeish Media for comment.
