Kim had tried to force a friendship with Beyonce, seemingly following the singer’s every move and trying to get into the elite circle of A-list friends including Gwyneth Paltrow. However, despite being photographed together a few times, the women never spent any other time together.
Some sources claim it’s because Kris Jenner plotted to exploit the “friendship” by having Blue Ivy on Keeping up with the Kardashians. Other claim it’s because Beyonce hates the negative attention and attention-seeking. Similarly, Jay Z has pulled away from friend of years Kanye. Seemingly ending the friendship altogether.
“When the rappers were on tour, Beyonce was forced to sit with Kim at shows and hang with her after, and she put up with it through gritted teeth,” says a source of why Beyonce is keeping her distance.
“Bey and Jay feel like they’ve been dragged through the mud with all the drama surrounding their absence at the Kimye wedding,” adds the source. “Jay made it clear to Kanye that he doesn’t approve of the choices hes making in his personal life and it will end in disaster for his career.”
Kris Jenner confirms that Beyonce and Jay Z were invited to the wedding but no-showed on the day (much like several other guests and the wedding photographer). Beyonce was relaxing in the Hamptons taking selfies and had no other plans. Kris and VOGUE’s Andre Leon Talley both insisted no one noticed or cared about the absence on the wedding day.
There has also been rivalry between the women, with Kim telling nannies that North West is cuter than Blue Ivy Carter.
