The Treasury Department is officially putting the controversy to rest over Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s recent trip to Cuba. The department issued a letter to contesting lawmakers on Tuesday, saying the trip was fully approved and licensed as an educational exchange. Several Florida legislators had been contesting the couple’s trip to the communist island, which has been off-limits to Americans since the 1960s.1365514191_beyonce-knowles-jay-z-cuba-467Treasury Department regulations prohibit Americans from travelling to Cuba “unless authorized by a general or specific license.” The music stars touched down in Cuba on their fifth wedding anniversary last Thursday.
