Last week, Kanye fanned the flames of internet drama with a comment about how his daughter North West has never had a playdate with Jay-Z‘s offspring Blue Ivy, suggesting a rift between the pair.
Kanye made further remarks implying that Jay is somehow holding up the release of his collaborative album with Drake, via some unspecified shenanigans between Apple Music and Jay’s own streaming service, Tidal.
Things escalated further when a ‘music industry source’ blabbed to the New York Post about the two men’s relationship, saying that Jay secretly can’t stand Kanye, and only tolerates him because of their professional relationship.
Now comes the big momma of all tabloid gossip tales – yet another New York Post piece that ran this weekend, implying that the real source of the tension is, in fact, Beyoncé‘s dislike of Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian.
shady, no-good attention-seeker anonymous source told Page Six that cracks began to show when Bey and Jay failed to rock up to Kimye’s wedding, and that:
“Beyoncé has never genuinely liked Kim. She’s mostly tolerated her because of their husbands’ friendship and [their] mutual friends, like Jennifer Lopez. 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.”
A rep for ‘Yonce has called the claims “ridiculous to say the least”, but then, what else would her rep say? “Kim’s a moll and Page Six is right on the money with this one”? Yeah, no, I don’t think so.
Meanwhile, a separate source has claimed:
“Kanye is likely trying to distance himself from Tidal so he can collect a bigger check from Apple. There will never be a Watch the Throne 2 because Kanye is a nightmare to work with and Jay’s not going to deal with that again.”
