Kim Kardashian lives an ultra luxurious lifestyle and is able to purchase anything her heart desires, but sadly, she can’t buy the thing she really wants—a friendship with Beyoncé. The reality star seems to be getting everything she wants lately, a beautiful baby, a loving fiancé, a Vogue cover, and an upcoming lavish Parisian wedding—complete with three ceremonies. However, it has been reported that when Kardashian asked Beyoncé be her bridesmaid and stand up with her during the ceremony, Beyoncé flat-out refused.
Not only did Beyoncé turn down Kardashian’s offer and refuse to stand up with the reality star, but it is now being reported that Beyoncé and Jay Z will not even be attending the wedding. Maybe this is the reason Beyoncé and Kardashian had an awkward encounter in a dermatologist office a few weeks back. It was also reported that Kanye West had asked his good friend Jay Z to be his best man and Jay Z had originally said yes, but only if his family was not shown on camera. Now it is reported that Beyoncé, Jay Z, and little baby Blue will not be attending the over the wedding at all.
KimKardashian has the ability to buy anything she wants, but she cannot seem to buy Beyoncé or Jay Z’s friendship, or attention. Although the reality star insists that there is no bad blood between the two, and claims that Beyoncé is the sweetest person she knows, Beyoncé has never publicly addressed—or refuted—the rumors. Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Kanye West all seem to get along and have respect for each other as peers, but Kardashian is struggling to be viewed the same way. It is reported that Beyoncé and Jay Z do not want to stoop to Kardashian’s level and appear on a reality show, which they feel is beneath them.
This is not the first time Kardashian has extended an invitation to Beyoncé, only to be turned down. Beyoncé was also invited to Kardashian’s baby shower, but declined to attend. Instead, the singer bought Kardashian an expensive Swarovski studded high chair, worth about $14,000. It seems like Beyoncé does not want to publicly confirm that she approves of Kardashian, so she never attends public events, however, she keeps the peace by buying her presents.
Kim Kardashian cannot buy Beyoncé as a friend, but perhaps Beyoncé is buying out Kardashian. Not only did Beyoncé refuse to attend Kardashian’s very public baby shower, but instead sent an expensive gift, the singer appears to be doing the same with the upcoming wedding. Beyoncé and Jay Z are not attending the Paris wedding, but it is reported that the couple will buy Kanye West and Kardashian a lavish gift to make up for it. Beyoncé and Jay Z are reportedly spending $100,000 on a luxury yacht for West and Kardashian to use on their honeymoon. Jay Z is also throwing Kanye West an epic bachelor party. Bottom line, even if Beyoncé won’t attend anything for Kardashian publicly, she shells out a lot of cash on some great gifts for the reality star. This shows that the two stars might be on okay terms, even if Beyoncé won’t publicly confirm it.
