Behind every great man tiff, there’s usually some women.
A week after it emerged Jay Z ‘cannot stand’ Kanye West, it transpires their wives don’t see eye to eye either.
According to Page Six, the reason behind the rappers’ feud ‘ stems right back to Beyoncé’s dislike of Kim Kardashian West and that’s why Blue and North have never had a play date.”
A source close to the Kardashian clan told site on Wednesday: ‘Beyoncé has never genuinely liked Kim’.
‘She’s mostly tolerated her because of their husbands’ friendship and [their] mutual friends, like Jennifer Lopez,’ the insider claimed.
‘She is always a little icy to Kim. The last time they hung out, the minute Beyoncé could leave the conversation, she did. They always have lots of awkward pauses.’
The source claims the proof can be found as far back as Kim and Kanye’s wedding in 2014 – to which Bey and Jay were invited but didn’t turn up.‘[Beyoncé’s] behavior during the wedding proved she isn’t Kim’s biggest fan,’ they said.
Mr and Mrs Carter apparently liked ‘the old Kanye’ before Kim, and that they give him stick whenever he appears on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
‘[She] always gives Kanye a lot of grief whenever he’s done anything for the show,’ the source said.
Talk of a feud was sparked last week when Kanye lashed out at his Watch The Throne collaborator for failing to show enough concern after Kim was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.‘Don’t call me, after the robbery, and say “how you feelin?” You wanna know how I’m feelin? Come by the house!’ he told the crowd at a Seattle gig.
‘Bring the kids by the house like we brothers . . . Our kids ain’t never even played together,’ he revealed.
However Page Six reported shortly afterward that the reason Jay Z doesn’t hang out with him is because he thinks he’s a nut job.
‘Jay can’t stand him,’ said the source. ‘He looks at him as this crazy, eccentric motherf***ker he can tolerate in small doses. Kanye is a nut job. Everyone knows that.’
