    You guys, it's time to move on.

    It seems as though Beyoncé and Jay Z's anniversary trip to Cuba last year is still on people's minds—mainly when it comes to whether or not their controversial trip was legal or not. Well, the Treasury Department's Office of Inspector General has now issued a nine-page report saying the famous pair did not violate any U.S. sanction laws during their visit.

    Additionally, the Treasury's OIG reportedly said their visit was properly licensed by the Office of Foreign Assets Control under the so-called "people-to-people" educational exchange program, as we previously reported.

    "Based on our review of available documentation and applicable regulations and guidance, we found no indication that U.S. sanctions were violated, and we concluded that the Office of Foreign Assets Control's decision not to pursue a formal investigation was reasonable," the OIG report said.

    After their vacation to Havana, Bey and Jay were under fire from two members of Congress who asked the Treasury Department to investigate whether they violated the long-standing U.S. embargo restricting travel to Cuba.

    Florida Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Maro Dias-Balart sent a letter to Adam Szubin, director of the Office of Foreign Assets Control, seeking "information regarding the type of license that Beyoncé and Jay-Z received, for what purpose, and who approved such travel."

    Safe to say this case is now closed.
