Beyonce Knowles and Kim Kardashian have not developed a friendship despite the requests of Kanye West and Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, and new reports suggest that there is a reason behind their reported feud.
In April it was reported that Beyonce, 31, had banned Kardashian from entering her inner circle after learning about the reality TV star's involvement with her good friend West, 34. However, weeks later, the new mom was spotted alongside Kardashian, 31, enjoying one of West and Jay-Z's European concert shows. The singer has allegedly since kept her distance making it clear that she wants nothing to do with Kardashian.
"[Kim and Beyonce] don't like each other," a source told HollywoodLife.com, adding that there "ain't nothing Kanye doing about it. He ain't stepping into any beef [with] Kim and Beyonce. So if you looking for Kanye to get involved, it ain't going to happen."
Following mounting speculation about the reasons behind their feud, the source confirmed that the clashing is simply a result of their big egos.
"I don't know why they don't get along. It's all this ego s---. I know Kim is trying to be nice to Beyonce and try to kiss her a-- but Beyonce don't be having it. I don't know what the f--- her problem is but Kim is trying to act nice," the insider explained.
Beyonce recently fueled speculation that she dislikes Kardashian when she reportedly ignored the reality TV star at the Made in America Festival in Philadelphia on Saturday, where both West and Jay-Z, 42, were playing.
"Kim and Beyonce barely spoke to each other. They were on opposite sides of the stage. Beyonce didn't even acknowledge [Kardashian] was there until the concert was almost over," a source told the New York Daily News.
The Grammy award-winning singer received widespread backlash after she was photographed alongside Kardashian, who rose to stardom in 2007 following the release of her homemade sex tape. Critics believe that the backlash may have prompted Beyonce to cut all ties with Kardashian once and for all.
"Beyoncé doesn't want the kind of celebrity that Kim Kardashian has nailed down as her own thing. Beyoncé doesn't want to bring that reality show infamy and drama into a personal life that Beyoncé has tried to keep close to her," another source said.
"The Beyoncé the world knows and the Beyoncé [and] Jay-Z that her close friends know are completely different and she wants to keep it that way," the source added.
