Beyonce's feud with Kim Kardashian has reportedly escalated following a recent incident involving the reality TV star and the singer's husband Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter.
Beyonce, 31, fueled reports that she dislikes Kardashian on Saturday when she allegedly ignored her at the Made in America Festival in Philadelphia where both Kanye West, 34, and Jay-Z, 42, were performing. Beyonce reportedly became furious and confronted Kardashian, 31, accusing the reality star of meddling in a documentary about Jay-Z that was being filmed by Ron Howard at the same event.
Kardashian was allegedly trying to shift the focus off of Jay-Z and onto herself, which did not sit well with Beyonce and ultimately prompted a confrontation.
"Kim was desperate for attention in the VIP area and was getting in the way of cameras that were supposed to be filming Jay-Z. She kept saying she was a huge fan of Ron Howard and would do anything to be cast in one of his films, so Kim was using this as an opportunity to impress the movie maverick," a source told RadarOnline.com.
"However, Beyonce wasn't amused that Kim was using her husband's documentary to audition for Ron. So, she took Kim to one side and told her that the day wasn't about her, it was about Jay-Z, his work in organizing the event and there were other celebrities and musicians there that needed coverage too," the insider went on.
West, who is a good friend of Beyonce and Jay-Z, has reportedly been urging the new mom to befriend Kardashian, his girlfriend, although the pair are continuously clashing.
"Kim was fuming that the spotlight wasn't on her – but Ron was there for Jay-Z, not her, and he really didn't care if she was or wasn't taking part in any of the filming. Step forward Jay-Z, as gracious as he is, [tried] to act as peacemaker. He said to Beyonce that she needs to play nice with Kim because he is pals with Kanye," the source said.
Kardashian was allegedly stunned by Beyonce's reaction because she meant no harm and the reality star immediately called her mother, Kris Jenner, to tell her what had happened.
"But the damage was done. Later that night, Kim phoned her mom Kris to complain about the harsh treatment she thought she got at the festival," the confidante explained, adding that "she just isn't used to not getting what she wants."
