Dozens of Homeless Families Face Removal from London Hotel During Beyoncé Tour

Dozens of homeless families currently sheltering in a London hotel face eviction at the end of this month when the Beyoncé Renaissance world tour lands in the capital. The Guardian newspaper reports up to 30 families will be removed from a Travelodge in Enfield and placed in an alternative, temporary accommodation as their rooms have been booked by other people during Beyoncé’s stay in London. The report comes just days after the Grammy-winner made headlines on the news that she purchased a $177 million Malibu mega-mansion.
