Reports claim Jay and Bey did not want to associate themselves to the KimYe event.
And it can be hard to stay in touch — Beyoncé and Jay Z both change their cellphone numbers every two weeks. Even other celebrities aren’t immune to quality control. It’s not whom they hang out with, says the source — “it’s who hangs out with them.” According to the source, they shunned Kanye West and Kim Kardashian‘s wedding because it was too low-rent for the Jay Z/Beyoncé brand. “They are guarding like hell their status,” the source says. “Beyoncé wasn’t going to allow a Kardashian to socially climb her. And Jay didn’t want Kanye with Kim — he thinks it’s bad for business. I think Jay lost a little respect for Kanye there.” (Page Six)
Kanye made headlines last month for allegedly holding a grudge toward Jay for his no-show.
Kanye has been showing his anger toward Jay Z ditching his wedding for awhile now. At Kanye’s X Games performance on June 7, the rapper first ignited the hip hop feud. Kanye completely dropped Jay Z’s name from his performance! Jay Z, Kanye is trying to tell you something. He is STILL mad you didn’t attend his wedding. The two rappers are bros and we’re sure they’ll work things out sooner or later. However, Kanye is not one to let go of a grudge easily. (Hollywood Life)
While she did not give a definite answer, Kanye’s mother-in-law Kris Jenner said recently addressed Jay Z’s wedding no-show.
During an interview with Australia radio station KIIS 106.5 FM on Tuesday, the E! reality star shared that Kimye’s wedding weekend was unaffected by the power couple’s absence. “There was so much commotion and excitement, I never really gave that a second thought,” Kim’s mother explained. “If you had been there, you would have thought that was the last thing on anyone’s mind.” She added, “[I] just assumed they were working.” (E!
