Beyonce and Jay Z have reportedly declined an invitation to attend Kim Kardashian's upcoming wedding to Kanye West due to work commitments.

Last month insiders claimed the Hollywood power couple were amongst Kardashian and West's star-studded wedding guest list, however, a new report claims they are unable to attend the May 24 event in France. West and Jay Z have been close friends for several years with sources claiming the pair consider one another to be almost like family.

In April, Beyonce and Jay Z announced their "On The Run" national tour, which is set to kick off next month and due to the highly anticipated event, they are unable to attend Kardashian and West's nuptials.

"They wouldn't mean it as a diss, they just don't want to go [they] would rather stay home with Blue Ivy, prepare for their tour, and just relax," a source told

"A wedding like this would be a complete process that they really aren't interested in getting involved," the insider explained.

On Friday a photo of Kardashian and West's wedding invitation leaked online and the card revealed the date and destination of their big day.

"The honour of your presence is requested at the marriage of Kim Kardashian to Kanye West," the card begins.

"Saturday, the twenty-fourth of May, two thousand and fourteen. Details upon arrival. Black tie," before going on to provide details of the wedding rehearsal dinner to take place in "Paris, France."

The reality TV star recently revealed that she and West will have around 200 people attend their big day. The wedding will mark her third marriage and West's first.

People are probably assuming we're going to have this massive wedding, and I think it will be – but intimate," Kardashian told Vogue magazine. "Two hundred people – just all of our closest friends – a special night for us and all the people that really love us and that have supported us."
