Kris Jenner has admitted that Kanye West’s friends Jay Z and Beyonce were invited to the wedding but no showed on the day. However, she claims no one even cared or noticed that the musical couple were absent.
“There was so much commotion and excitement, I never really gave that a second thought,” the 58-year-old told radio co-hosts Kyle and Jackie O. “If you had been there you would have thought that was the last thing on anyone’s mind.”
“[I] just assumed they were working,” she added.
Previously, a source confirmed to E! “Given Kim and Kanye’s list of celeb friends, surprisingly, they didn’t invite that many. They wanted it to be a small and intimate wedding. Jay Z and Beyoncé were invited but didn’t come, seemingly to avoid drama from Rachel Roy who was going. In the end, the wedding was full of love and super intimate.”
Jay Z and Beyonce were not working, and apparently had no more pressing plans than to chill in The Hamptons taking selfies of their hair on Instagram. Following criticism and claims it was spite and jealousy, Beyonce eventually wished the newlyweds a happy wedding and future together. “Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love,” she wrote. “God bless your beautiful family.”
Previously, it was claimed that Beyonce hated “scandalous”, “social climbing” Kim.
“Bey does not like Kim at all. She’s cool with Kanye, but can’t stand Kim,” a source claimed. “[Beyonce] calls Kim a ‘scandalous social climbing wh*re’ behind her back.”
Similarly, Jay Z mocks Kanye behind his back.
“Jay thinks the entire Kimye wedding is a joke and it’s being blown way out of proportion,” a source said in May. “He likes Kanye and Kim, but totally talks smack about them behind their backs. When he was asked about the wedding he just laughed and said, ‘The circus goes to Paris!’”
