'So, what's the big wup, lots of couples have counselling' I hear you cry. Well, naturally their counselling is different to the norm - it's "online".

The couple - who are currently on their joint On The Run world tour - are said to be having counselling sessions with a therapist on the Internet via Skype, in order to keep their relationship going strong.

A source revealed: "It might sound drastic but in America especially, counselling is fairly standard procedure. They have known their therapist for a long time and try to have weekly sessions just to keep communication open and make sure there are no misunderstandings."

Despite the couple - who got married in 2008 - having been plagued by rumours of infidelity in recent months (largely thanks Beyonce's impromptu onstage lyric change), the sessions are said to be about maintaining the happiness in their relationship for the sake of their two-year-old daughter.

The source added to the Daily Mirror: "It's about maintenance rather than trying to fix anything hugely wrong. They are both happy and their daughter, Blue Ivy, remains their absolute priority."

The news comes two months after Solange was seen attacking Jay in leaked security footage from an elevator as the trio made their way out of a Met Ball after-party in New York.

A statement was later released, saying: "At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."
