We absolutely hate perpetuating catfight rumors around here. The idea that women inherently hate each other makes us crazy. But for weeks now, we’ve been hearing stuff about Beyonce dissing her husband’s friend’s girlfriend, Kim Kardashian. To the point that we don’t think we can just stick our fingers in our ears and pretend that nothing’s happening there. Even if we hope that’s still the case. What happened is this: Jay-Z’s best friend TyTy‘s birthday party was in London over the weekend, and, according to MediaTakeout, when Beyonce heard that Kanye West was bringing his new ladyfriend along, she fought with Hov to try to get Kim uninvited. And when that didn’t work, she refused to come.
Any truth to this? Well, we do know that Kimye, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Rita Ora and others were all photographed leaving a private party at DSTRKT club in London on Saturday night. Beyonce was nowhere in sight. You know what else we know? That Beyonce has a 5-month-old baby at home and a major three-night concert gig in Atlantic City coming up on Memorial Day. So maybe, just maybe, jetting off to London didn’t seem like the most important use of her time.
Last week, a source told the New York Daily News that Kim is dying to be friends with the Queen Bey. “Kim wants to travel everywhere with Kanye, but she’s also trying to do whatever she can to get close to Beyonce.” But other gossips are saying that Beyonce wants nothing to do with the reality-TV star. “Beyonce doesn’t want to bring that reality show infamy and drama into a personal life that Beyonce has tried to keep close to her,” someone told HollywoodLife.com.
That’s all uncorroborated, of course, so we hardly know what to believe. Still, this is the only photo we have of Kim and Bey in the same room together, at the Vera Wang Spring 2012 runway show in New York last September. Same front row, worlds apart.
