Kanye Takes His Wife Kim And The Kardashian-Jenner Family To The Star-Studded Party While The Jiggaman Is Only Accompanied By His Own Spouse Beyonce Knowles.
Kanye West and Jay-Z had a reunion at P. Diddy’s star-studded party. The “Watch the Throne” artists were seen greeting each other with handshakes, seemingly exchanged a few words, and shared big smiles at the music mogul’s recent 50th birthday bash.
Jay-Z initially ignored Kanye when the latter attempted to greet him when they’re about to pose for the camera with Diddy and Pharrell Williams. While Kanye gave a big smile, Jay-z was expressionless and didn’t even make eye contact. The friendly exchange only happened afterwards.
Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce Knowles was among the attendees as well. Meanwhile, Kanye was accompanied by his own spouse Kim Kardashian. Her sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner as well as momager Kris Jenner tagged along as well.
Other famous guests included Post Malone, Tyga, Naomi Campbell, Offset, Cardi B, Dr. Dre, Kobe Bryant, Kate Beckinsale, Alexis Skyy, Yung Miami, Lil’ Kim, Usher, Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae. Among the performers was Mary J. Blige.
Kanye and Jay-Z were once close friends. Kanye even hijacked Taylor Swift’s Best Female Video acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs to tell the crowd that Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce should have won the title. He took a lot of heat because of his stunt.
The duo then went on a joint tour in 2011 to support their collaborative LP, but their relationship got strained over the past few years. The Hov dissed Kanye for supporting Donald Trump while Kanye criticized the Jiggaman’s music streaming service Tidal.
Kanye was also disappointed with Jay-Z and Beyonce for skipping his 2014 wedding. He was even more hurt that the couple didn’t call him when his wife Kim was robbed at gunpoint in Paris in 2016. “Our kids have never even played together,” Kanye lamented.
Kanye also dragged Beyonce into the feud by accusing her of refusing to perform at the 2016 MTV VMAs unless her music video beat his and Drake’s to win Video of the Year, which it did. While Beyonce kept silent, Jay-Z responded a year later. He said Kanye went too far and wanted him to leave Beyonce out of their beef.
