Just days after signing a $40 million reality TV deal with the E! network, Kardashian Matriarch Kris Jenner is reportedly pursuing Beyonce Knowles to appear on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" despite reports that the singer wants nothing to do with the Kardashians.
"Kris wants to convince Beyonce to bring Baby Blue on and make it her first-ever TV appearance! She thinks it would be cute to have a segment of Beyonce and Kim talking about babies," a source told Hollywood Life.
Jenner's daughter Kim Kardashian recently began dating hip hop star Kanye West, and as a result of his close ties to renowned artists like Beyonce and husband Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, Jenner is reportedly seeing dollar signs.
"One of the main reasons she so approves of Kim and Kanye's romance, is the fact that Kanye has tons of celebrity friends. Kris has her ways, and it wouldn't surprise me if the cameras capture Kim and Kanye on a double date with Beyonce and Jay-Z," the source said.
"Kris is also doing her best to convince Kanye to arrange the double date. Believe me, it's hard to say no to Kris!" the source added.
Critics suspect that Jenner, 56, is pursuing Beyonce, who is arguably among the most powerful women in Hollywood, in a bid to boost ratings for the family's reality TV show. But new reports suggest that the "Single Ladies" singer may have banned Kardashian, 31, from her inner circle after learning about her new found romance with West, according to Heat Magazine.
"[Beyonce] wasted no time in banning Kim from being invited into their inner circle, which is exclusive to say the least. Beyoncé is used to hanging out with Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow- she's in a totally different league," a source told Heat Magazine.
Fans of West, 34, have suggested that Kardashian, who is still legally married to NBA star Kris Humphries, may only be interested in the Grammy award-winning artist because she believes that having an association with him could help revive her tarnished image.
"While they were out in New York, she made Kanye get Beyonce on the phone to try to set up something where Kim and Beyonce would be photographed together. She thinks if she's seen with someone like that everyone will like her again. That's her plan," a source told Hollywood Life.
