Short message:kim kardashianYBeyoncésupposedly not friends. Although they are occasionally seen together, the relationship is reported to be quite one-sided, with Kardashian reportedly trying her best to curry favor with Queen Bey but failing miserably. Why aren't these superstars best friends? For starters, there isKanye WestFactor. Kim Kardashian's rapper/producer husband has already been a polarizing figure in theMusicworld evenBeforeHe started calling Bey and her husband onstage during their disastrous 2016 Saint Pablo Tour. That couldn't help.
Of course, the entire feud between Kim and Bey also boiled down to the simple explanation that they don't look that much alike: Kim is a reality star whose fame depends on sharing her entire life with her fans, while Beyoncé maintains her personal life. almost completely separate from her career. Could it really be that simple, or is there more to the story? Let's dive into the real reasons why Beyoncé can't stand Kim Kardashian.
Kanye doesn't build bridges
In November 2016, Kanye West abruptly stopped a show during his Saint Pablo tour to spill tea on Beyoncé and Jay Z.AND! News,Westscoldingfrom stage: "Beyoncé, it hurt me because I heard you said you wouldn't act unless you won video of the year for me and for 'Hotline Bling.'" She added: "Now don't try to put Beyoncé down. She's great... We're all great people. We're all the same, but sometimes we play politics too much and forget who we are just to win.
The expletive-laden tirade went on and on. "Jay Z call me bruh," West said. "You haven't called me yet. Jay Z, call me... Jay Z: I know you have killers. Please don't send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man." He also used a concert to piss off Jay (and the rest of the world): "Our children have never played together.."
Of course, Kanye's comments are his own, but if Kim's only connection to Beyoncé had been through Kanye's turbulent relationship with Jay Z, then it's obvious there would be tension there. As it turns out, Jay Z later confirmed the broken friendship.
look at the moans
Jay Z finally responded to West's concert outbursts with his 2017 song "Kill Jay Z." so jay zstruck, "You gave him 20 million without batting an eye / He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck did he think about it?" This led West's rant from simply "Kanye is Kanye" to a full-blown feud.
Jay Z and West later fought in subsequent interviews, with West telling it off.rap radarpodcast (viaAND! News) that West crossed the line when he brought Bey and the kids to their meat. However, the 99 Problems rapper backed out.My next guest needs no introduction.(abovediversity), and withThe New York Times dies, calling West his "little brother" and blaming a family feud.
But wait a minute, because it wasn't all "KumbaYe"...
The meat still looks fresh.
In April 2018, West sat down for an extensiveInterview with Charlamagne Tha Godand admitted that this whole breakup started when Jay and Bey skipped their wedding, a slight they never directly addressed. West also revealed the surprising status of her relationship with Jay Z at the time of the interview.
"We're good...we're texting, it's positive energy," West said, adding, "I haven't seen it, but I can feel it." Speaking about Jay Z's family during his tour, West was furious and unapologetic. “If we are family, if we are brothers and we are family, then it is my family,” he said. "If we are business partners, then it went too far." Phew. This meat sounds anything but squashed.
I wonder how this all applies directly to Kim and Beyoncé, ladies: if one of your so-called friends freaked out at your wedding for no reason, what do you think she thinks of you?
If Kim is a thirst trap, Beyoncé is the source
kim kardashian hatdocumentedallfrom a 72-day marriage falling apart to smelling her own private parts on her reality show. Can you imagine Beyoncé doing something remotely similar? Just in case: No one knew about Beyoncé and Jay Z's 2008 wedding until it was over. Meanwhile, Kardashian and West are courting the same publicity Hov and Bey are trying to avoid.
As a result, tons of tea has been spilled on the subject by anonymous "sources" claiming to be from the Jay and Bey camp. "[Beyoncé] always gives Kanye a lot of angst when she does something for [Keeping Up with the Kardashians]," a source said.page six. Otherspage sixStory reported that Kardashian and West's obsession with fame irks Bey and Jay. "[Jay-Z] likes his own space and it's private. Jay's immediate circle is very isolated and Kanye is just a guy who always wants to be the center of attention," a source told the tab.
online radarhe even went so far as to quote a source as saying, "B calls Kim a 'shocking social climber' behind her back." Someone sound the alarm!
Beyoncé doesn't take kindly to scammers
Like Beyonce OpusLemonade overtly impliedSupposedly, Jay Z was playing behind her back and she didn't take it. It is understandable that her infidelity caused such a breakdown in her marriage that Jay Z evenhe has addressed it on his own album,4:44In it, he references the infamous "Becky" from Beyoncé's scathing song "Sorry" and describes himself as a ladies' man who had to "explain my wrongs."
Meanwhile, Yeezy's ex Amber Rose claims that Kardashian and West started dating when West and Rose were still together. Rose called Kardashian a "homewrecker" and claimed to do itPopa(aboveonline radar), "They both cheated. [West and Kardashian] cheated on me and Reggie [Bush]... It's very important that women stick together and not fuck with it."
If Rose is telling the truth, there's a good chance Bey is at least giving Kimye a sideways look at relationship history.
Great dress, Kim, but it looks familiar.
There have been a few instances where Beyoncé's rabid fanbase (aka The Beyhive) harassed Kim Kardashian for allegedly trying to steal the spotlight from her Queen Bey, most notably perhaps when Beyoncé's album Lemonade was released in 2016. Kardashian simultaneously posted a series of sexually suggestive photos from a friend's wedding to her Instagram account, without mentioning her alleged friend's masterpiece.
Kardashian also ruined Beyoncé's style in May 2015 when she wore one.Roberto Cavalli white dressto the Met Gala, which many felt was a clear imitation of the stunning Givenchy gown Beyoncé had worn to the same event three years earlier. Kardashian insisted it was herinspired by cher. Coincidences happen, right?
Nun, I'm May 2018,the shadow roomcalled Kardashian about another alleged clothing theft at the Met Gala. This time around, Kim hosted an afterparty in a "Versace bondage-inspired dress with a cage corset and elastic straps," which Beyoncé previously wore to a 2011 shoot.Complex. oops! Not only is it the same #BishStoleMyLook movement, but it happened at the same event.
Shadows for the baby shower
Nothing puts a friendship in doubt like skipping out on monumental life events, and we already know that Jay and Bey prevented Kimye's nuptials. Additionally, Beyoncé and Kardashian did not attend each other's baby showers, of which there were five, including the most recent one for Kardashian's third child, Chicago. Okay, these are busy women, but come on. Of all these happy occasions, couldn't these so-called friends get together for one?
Then there is the supposed "give away." According to theheat(aboveStyleCaster)Kardashian reportedly sent "one of her KKW Beauty Contour Kits in a $150,000 gold box" along with "$10,000 worth of clothes for Blue Ivy and the twins from her out-of-print children's clothing line, The Kids Supply." But Beyoncé reportedly gave everything "to the hospital nurses for her children." Aside from the creepy idea of Kardashian giving people things from her own product line, if this "gift" rumor was true, Beyoncé should have returned everything with a personalized label that read: We're not friends.
Money Isn't A Thing...Until It Is
While Jay Z and Kanye West were publicly fighting over song lyrics and Meltdown rants, behind the scenes they were waging a war over their business partnership regarding Jay Z's Tidal streaming service. In July 2017,billboardreported that both West and Jay Z claimed the other was in breach of contract. West claimed that he was not paid for the subscriptions he brought with him to the service.Paul's lifealbum, with Tidal claiming that West "failed to deliver" the contracted music videos.
At the time, the two rappers were at a dead end with negotiations, sources say.billboardWest would no longer honor Tidal's exclusivity rights due to "failure to meet his financial commitments." However, a few months later, sources saidTMZthat Jay Z and West were planning a face-to-face meeting to figure it all out.
remember westapproved in April 2018that he and Jay Z haven't seen each other in years, so it's possible that the tidal dispute remains unresolved. With that boardroom meat still simmering, things were definitely going to get awkward now, even if his wives had been friends before, which, come on, they clearly weren't.

Because? above the sourcesto share Roy's flirtatious ways with Jay Z,the fashion designer isoften gropedas the woman who started the infamouselevator fight 2014between Jay-Z and Beyoncé's sister, Solange, after a Met Gala.
This is the presence of RoyThis is rumored to have been one of the main reasons the Carters skipped Kardashian and West's wedding.(and maybe the couple's engagement), but the bad blood doesn't end there. roy evengleefully played with the rumorsthat she was the infamous "Becky" from Beyoncé's hard-hitting song "Sorry."
However, Kardashian could easily smooth over any awkward friendship triangulation between her, Roy, and Beyoncé if she wanted to. However, self-promotion is the soul of every Kardashian, which is why Kim Snapchat in July 2017 (viaInstagram) a video of her and Roy boarding a private plane for a "couples retreat to San Francisco". In the battle of social media likes against the appeasement of the socially reserved Queen Bey, we're pretty sure we know where the Kardashian falls on this one.
Has Kim compared her marriage to Jay and Bey?
Beyoncé is a near-flawless pop culture icon. Kim Kardashian is a reality star who has successfully transformed her image into a brand. Though the sources of her fame couldn't be further apart, in Kardashian's eyes, they now live similar lives.
sources saidhollywood lifeKardashian reacted to Jay Z's cheating admissions4:44saying, "She sees herself and Kanye in the same way," adding that they are "just like Jay and Bey," who "fought to keep their relationship strong, and now they're at one." Really a great place.” Granted, that's third-party speculation, but West is pretty clear on how he feels his wife is on a par with his multi-Grammy Award-winning contemporary.
Stating that Kardashian and Beyoncé "love" and "respect" each other, West told 105.1 FM (viaGeier), "When Beyoncé is working on her album, she has pictures of Kim on her walls because Kim represents strong women." I say."
Beyoncé has a picture of Kim on her wall, right? Did ye also notice a lot of arrows shot nearby?
Sometimes an awkward silence says it all
What could Beyoncé and Kardashian talk about? According to some reports, not much. A source that matterspage six, "Beyoncé never liked Kim... She's always a little cold towards Kim. The last time they were together, she did it as soon as Beyoncé could get away from the conversation. You always have a lot of awkward breaks."
Witnesses have confirmed this notion. sources said that theTagesnachrichten of the New YorkerAt the Made in America festival in September 2012, the two avoided each other and barely spoke to each other, even when standing next to each other.
However, at Serena Williams' wedding in November 2017, there may have been a crack in the metaphorical wall of ice between them. RespectivelyTMZThe sources observed Kardashian and Beyoncé in a VIP area, where they allegedly "exchanged greetings, hugged each other and showed some photos of their children." That sounds like progress, but what are the chances that Kardashian would walk away from an interaction without selfies? Yeah, we didn't buy it either.
Damn if you like it, damn if you don't
Since we've already established the importance Kim Kardashian places on her social media interactions, we'll add this relatively dubious fact to the list. Respectivelyrefinery 29, Kim liked Beyoncés, then she didn't like himinstagram postis celebrating a month since the birth of his twins, Sir and Rumi. Theater alert!
Kardashian was reportedly mortified to pull the like back after the hive came out in her favor on Twitter. Complicating matters further, the timing of publication revealed that Bey and Jay's twins have birthdays just two days away from the Kardashian's daughter North, who was born on June 15, 2013 (while Rumi and Sir were born on June 13, 2017). . . Staged again!
Of course, we're aware that Beyoncé probably doesn't care who likes her Instagram posts. But the fact that something as seemingly benevolent as Kardashian, who interacts with Beyoncé's social media, can make headlines in this way cannot go down well with the pop star who managed to overcome such nonsense.
Beyoncé put down Kim in a new song?
One of the most direct signs that Beyoncé can't stand Kim Kardashian has to be the inclusion of a certain line on her 2018 track: "Full." We are talking about the line "Iromper internet, Top 2 and I'm not #2", which seems to be a clear reference to the infamous (and awesome) Kardashian NSFW.paper magazineShot that coined the term "Break the Internet."
Of course, Beyoncé could use the phrase to emphasize her own life in the headlines, but out loud.news center, doubled down with the following line: "My body, my ice cream, my money, all real, I'm a triple threat," which they interpreted as a reference to Kardashian's alleged plastic surgeries.
Again, this is a third party interpretation of a vague shadow cast on a song. Will we ever find out exactly what Beyoncé meant in "Top Off"? Probably not. But we doubt she'll throw in positive Kardashian shoutouts on the remix to set the record straight.
