Archaeologist Zahi Hawass is know as the “gatekeeper of the pyramids” and had a very bad experience when Beyonce signed up for a tour in 2009.

…the controversial archaeologist bad-mouthed the star to local reporters back then, allegedly calling her a ‘stupid person’ who ‘doesn’t understand a thing.’

Now, in a new interview, Hawass, 66, claims the Love On Top singer arrived late to her tour of the historical site…’She said she would come at 3pm but she came late. I said “You have to say I’m sorry I’m late”. But she didn’t open her mouth,’ said Hawass, who is described as the ‘gatekeeper’ of the pyramids.

The last straw came when Beyonce’s photographer allegedly almost hit Hawass’.

‘I brought a photographer and she also had a photographer and a guard. When my photographer started to shoot, he said “No, Stop! I am the one who says yes or no, not you.! I said !In that case since you almost hit my photographer and you are not polite – out! I am not giving you the privilege of having you on my tour.! I said BeyoncĂ© was stupid and I left.’

Beyonce’s rep says, “This never happened.”
