After the publication reported that Jay Z is tired of Kanye West’s “nut job” stunts, a source exclusively says that the rappers’ feud “stems right back to Beyoncé’s dislike of West’s wife, and that’s why Blue and North have never had a play date.”
Said the Kardashian source: “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” when they speak.

Jay and Bey’s absence at West and Kardashian’s 2014 wedding made it clear how they truly feel about the couple.
“[Beyoncé’s] behavior during the wedding proved she isn’t Kim’s biggest fan,” the source explained. Beyoncé and Jay Z were invited, and their names were engraved in the marble table for the wedding dinner, but they didn’t show up.
Meanwhile, multiple sources say Jay Z “misses the old Kanye,” and both he and Bey prefer to keep a low-key profile compared to West and Kardashian. At Ye’s recent gig, he declared of Jay Z: “There will never be a ‘Watch the Throne 2.”
Another source revealed that 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.
Beyoncé’s rep called the source’s claims “ridiculous, to say the least,” but did not comment further. Reps for Jay and Kardashian didn’t comment.
