Beyoncé reportedly interested in buying a stake in Houston Rockets

Rockets could be getting a drop of 'Lemonade' soon.

The Houston Rockets could soon be getting a drop of Lemonade courtesy of Beyoncé.

According to Bloomberg's Scott Soshnick, "people familiar with the matter" believe Bey is considering an investment to become a part owner of the team. The value of the Rockets is expected to go from its current $1.65 billion tag to $2 billion due to its popularity in China.

Beyoncé will become just one of several celebrities to invest in a sports franchise. Her husband JAY-Z previously had a share in the Brooklyn Nets, before selling his stake in 2013. Usher owns a piece of the Cleveland Cavaliers, as well as Nelly with the Charlotte Hornets and Justin Timberlake with the Memphis Grizzlies.

Interestingly enough, Rocket's current owner Leslie Alexander put up the team up for sale last month. Although Alexander didn't reveal a reason for the surprise move, Rockets CEO Tad Brown stated that the franchise is looking to find the right buyer and wouldn't rush the process.
