Beyonce refuses to be Kim Kardashian’s bridesmaid, Bey ‘doesn’t take her calls’


Do you believe the theory that Beyonce hates Kim Kardashian and thinks Kim is “beneath” her? Or do you believe the theory that Beyonce likes Kim just fine, and that Bey is happy that her friend Kanye has found someone who makes him happy? I think the answer is probably somewhere in-between. Beyonce knows that she’s at the top of the celebrity heap and that she merely deigns to acknowledge Kim, but I’d also bet that Beyonce doesn’t mind spending time with Kim here and there, especially in Kanye’s company. As for how Kim sees her relationship with Beyonce… well, Kim is her mother’s favorite. That should tell you a lot about how Kim operates: always hustling, always pimping, always looking to uptrade her way into more elite company. Kim wants to be BFFs with Bey. And Kim barely enters Beyonce’s mind.

So, with those dynamics at play, would you believe this Star story? Allegedly, Kim wants Beyonce to be one of her bridesmaids for her summer wedding to Kanye! Hahahaha.

Beyonce is saying “I don’t” to Kim Kardashian’s invite to be a bridesmaid, leaving Kim humiliated. “Kim has been boasting to pals that Bey wants to be a bridesmaid, but Beyonce turned her down flat,” snipes a source, revealing that while Beyonce plays nice with Kim, she finds her family unbearable.

“Beyonce doesn’t want anything to do with the Kardashian clan. From sex tapes to crack addicts, they’re too controversial.”

And just because their men, Jay-Z and Kanye West, are best buddies, that doesn’t mean Beyonce will ever be BFFs with Kim.

“Beyonce doesn’t even take Kim’s calls, so she was shocked when she got a voicemail begging her to be a bridesmaid. This is a woman who doesn’t care how close a friend you are, all she cares about are big names.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

This is less about how Beyonce feels about Kim and more about how Beyonce feels about herself. Beyonce is nobody’s bridesmaid! Beyonce is a QUEEN. She is the bride, never the bridesmaid. Maybe the maid of honor, but only for, like, Kelly Rowland or Solange. NEVER A BRIDESMAID. Which, when you think about it, is a pretty good rule for any woman. So, yes, I think Beyonce and Jay-Z will probably attend Kanye and Kim’s wedding (if it actually happens and Kanye doesn’t run off with Riccardo!), but only as guests. They won’t be tacky wedding party people.

    Bey number 2 (aka NOT being the centre of attention?)Never….

    • Lucy2 says:

      Exactly- I can’t see her participating if someone else is the star. She’s too self obsessed.
      Of course, I don’t blame her for not wanting to be involved with them at all.

      • idk says:

        Beyonce is very concerned about her own image. I doubt she wants the world to think her and Kim are good buddies. It’s not good for business. Kim calls EVERYONE her bff. In her previous wedding, I think just her sisters were her bridesmaids right? I do believe Jay-Z and Beyonce will show up to the wedding because they are close with Kanye. If the wedding is televised there is no way they will sign a release form…you’ll just see them with blurred faces lol. Also, wonder why Kim and Kanye weren’t at Blue Ivy’s second birthday a few days ago in Miami? Do you really think Kim would skip that party if she was invited?

    • Totes girl says:

      To be honest she’s just as bad as Kimm. They both need reality checks and realize they aren’t as great as they say. Sure Beyoncé can sing I’m not. Fan of that type of music but she’s a bit overrated. And as far as kimmyslice can’t stand her . To self centered

  2. menlisa says:

    Beyonce and Kim are a lot alike.
    A lot.

    Edit: I meant personality wise and their love for fame. Obviously when it comes to work Beyonce is crazy talented.

    • A Different Kate says:

      With the one tiny little minor exception that Beyonce actually has talent and is legitimately famous for that talent.

    • Leah says:

      Except Beyonce has talent and Kim has none.

      • Tapioca says:

        OTOH, Kim has never claimed to have an overwhelming talent whilst shamelessly plagiarising the work of others. Over and over again. Or hire goons to prevent parents from seeing their ill newborns in NICU. Or get her dad to screw over her (alleged) friends/band mates. Or marry a misogynist former crack-dealer who doesn’t pay his club employees and back-up dancers a fair wage.

        They’re just as bad as each other – one had the good fortune to be born with a decent voice…

      • Boo says:

        Well said Tapioca!

      • Delorb says:


        Sorry, but NO ONE is going to stop parents from seeing their ill kids in ICU. Hospitals aren’t run like that. Also, the ICU is in a separate area from the maternity ward. They may have closed down a section to accommodate her (just as a hospital did for Angie Jolie), but they didn’t shut down the entire hospital and certainly not critical areas. Please think before you believe gossip.

        As for the contract crap, the other members of the group ‘thought’ that Beyonce was getting special treatment ($$$). They were told that the money was coming, have patience. An outside voice told them that wasn’t true and that they should strong arm for ($$$). They did and it backfired. Beyonce had nothing to do with that decision, she wasn’t the manager.

        As far as Jay-Z is concerned, how is his behavior her fault?

      • Boo says:

        BTW soon after Beyoncé gave birth to her folding stomach and another father at the hospital called out B&J for keeping him and other parents from their newborns in NICU the hospital PUBLICLY announced an INQUIRY…interesting nothing else was said after Beyoncé publicly denied taking over the hospital and keeping parents from newborns…what would they/ the hospital had done if just one of those babies in NICU had DIED?? I’m assuming just like John Travolta and so many other celebs silence and destroying any evidence was PAID for.

      • Kate says:

        Jay Z is a former drug dealer. I remember a Chris Rock bit were he said behind every fortune was a crime. This goes or the Kennedy’s and all that old money, former bootleggers etc. This is coming from a person who doesn’t own a Jay Z CD or been to one of his concerts.

    • FingerBinger says:

      I thought you meant they are both trash. Kim is just trash that released a sex tape and Beyonce is trash that can “sing”.

      • Dommy Dearest says:


        I’ll never forget the gifs of her with a nasty look on her face when the normal people crossed her paths. Plus the gif of Beyonce making certain faces when Kelly said she was the second lead vocalist. The other women glanced at her but Beyonce looked like she was trying to stuff one in her mouth before rolling her eyes. That’s how she reacted to her band mate and supposed best friend makes her trash and not anyone I want to meet.

      • a€s says:

        @Dommy Dearest: Do you have a link to these gifs?

        LOVE your name btw

      • a€s says:

        @FingerBinger I don’t know why you put it as “sing”. Maybe her vocal style isn’t to your taste, but she undeniably has a solid voice.

  3. UghInsomnia says:

    They’re both shallow, vapid women who can’t articulate to save their lives, but….

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Kim, no one with even a hint of class wants to be associated with you.

  4. Leah says:

    If they are not close friends why on earth should she be her bridesmaid just because she is famous and kardashians can brag about it? No one over 14 wants to be a bridesmaid anyway.

  5. Snarkweek says:

    I would not want to be an extra in that circus freak show of a wedding either. And iamb pretty sure that these two women do not hang out on a regular basis so why would Kim ask her in the first place? She is trying to pimp out her fiancé’s celebrity connections the way her mom has always pimped her out. Gross.

    • bluhare says:

      LOL, Snarkweek. Except I think this is all about what Kanye wants. Jay as his best man and Jay’s wife as Kim’s matron of honor. Like Beyoncé would deign to be matron of anything!

      • idk says:

        I doubt Kanye was Jay’s best man at his wedding. I wonder if he was even there?

      • Snarkweek says:

        Ita. Culturally it is the norm to focus on the bride when it comes to weddings but this is no ordinary couple and unfortunately this will be no ordinary wedding LOL. I think King Kanye Will be the mastermind behind this epic event. I predict a bacchanalian hellscape with the bride and groom on huge golden thrones/toilets presiding over the reception. There will be marble statues of fauns urinating on one another and skyboxes installed for the halftime show coverage. Kris will bellydance in a costume made of Swarovski covered confidentiality contracts and Bruce Jenner will be carried in on a huge silver platter with an apple in his mouth. The wedding favors will be little bubble bottles filled with Botox and vacuum packed cheek cutlets. Guests who remember the bride’s old face will be seated to the right and those who cant pick it out of a lineup will be seated to the left. The officiant will ask if there is anyone present who can claim paternity of Khloe or Mason speak now or forever hold his peace. The bridesmaids will have Prada sweaters tied around their waists. For the guests amusement after dinner there will be fun photo booths located beside a corresponding photoshop booth in case you don’t like your snapshot. Will someone send me an invitation please!

  6. Dawn says:

    Bey and Kim are NOT that much alike, one has talent and the other one is famous because she allowed Ray J to pee in her mouth while making a sex tape to distribute to the world. My respect for Bey just went up times a thousand that is how much I am disgusted by Kim Kardashian. Kanye said his friends took him aside and warned him about being with Kimmode and he told them he doesn’t care. Well we will see how much he doesn’t care as they all turn their backs on him, his big mouth and his girl. Kim thinks hooking up with this guy was her way into the circle she so wants to be in but I do not believe it will happen, the Kardashians instead are dragging West down to their level. Sure they have a ton of money but NOT much else. So I stand and give Bey the slow clap.

    • UghInsomnia says:

      I’ve seen so many people say that Kim got peed on, but I’ve never watched the video. Does she really? In her MOUTH??? Ugh ugh ugh ugh

      • blue marie says:

        what?!? oh, that’s nasty

      • NerdMomma says:

        I didn’t see the video but I know someone who did. He said there was NO peeing anywhere. I wish people would stop saying that, it’s not true. What is true is that Kim lies on her back the whole time. Apparently she is just super lazy. That’s all it took back then.

      • Lady D says:

        The tape was re-edited for commercial reasons by PMK. The original has him actually peeing on her.

    • Amanduh says:

      I (shamefully) remember seeing a clip of Keeping Up…and Kim is talking to some girl (Pippen’s wife- who is EXACTLY like Kim!) and they’re talking about babies and whatnot. This woman says, “…but wouldn’t it be so cool to say that Kayne West is your baby’s daddy?!” and my heart broke a little. Not, “But wouldn’t it be amazing to bring a life into the world?!” or “But wouldn’t it be amazing to have a baby and love and nurture it unconditionally?!” I thought that was the most hollow, superficial thing I had ever heard someone say…

      • klaas says:

        I remember too. It’s like they were talking about designer bags. And sad part is that woman already has kids.

    • bns says:

      I agree.

      LOL @ the comments above saying they’re just alike.

      • Evelyn says:

        Can we revisit the peeing thing for a moment? Does he really pee in her mouth!?

      • NerdMomma says:

        No. That never happened.

      • Dommy Dearest says:

        In the one that wasn’t edited for consumers, he did. In the one that is on shelves no. PMK had that part removed.

      • springingforward says:

        Yes, he does pee in her mouth in the original cut. Part of the negotiation by the Kardashians for release was that it be edited out. There are people on the inside who have seen the original, uncut version. But none of us will ever see it.

  7. dorothy says:

    Face it Kim, your not a-list, never will be. Your just a wanna be with a porn movie past.

  8. Dani says:

    This is the only thing that makes me have the tiniest amount of respect for B. Like, this much ||.

  9. rosemary says:

    You know what I actually believe this story

  10. Neffie says:

    i think Beyonce tolerates anybody that is not in her inner circle like Goop. Bey is only ever seen with her mother,sister,cousin Angie and her band mates. I dont she is generally comfortable with any other females.

    • idk says:

      I agree. She probably only trusts very few people in life. To be honest, that’s how everyone should be. Kim, on the other hand, seems to latch on to every semi-famous person she can get her hands on and within a few days she is calling them her bff. It all depends on who is in the news at the time. Nicole Ritchie is in the spotlight right now regarding her “eating disorder” so of course Kim just yesterday had to tweet a pic of her and Nicole as teenagers.

    • Jaana says:

      There are so many pics of Beyonce’ hanging out with other females.

      • bob says:

        Not on her Instagram or Tumblr

      • bns says:

        ^ So?

      • Jaana says:

        @bob Its HER Instagram and Tumblr accounts, besides her Tumblr is mostly filled her pics of her working and videos of her tour and her fans. She doesn’t owe any ‘celebrity’ anything by putting them on her social media accounts. At a party she went on NYE she was hanging with so many females and having a good time. You are not a fan so you should not judge without knowing. Also Beyonce works a lot so she really doesn’t have time to go shopping and get caught by the paparazzi.

  11. Neffie says:

    And why on earth would you ask a married woman to be a bridesmaid? Or is it different in America,in my country all bridesmaid are ‘single’ and the matron of honour is the only married one??? Do tell

    • Lucy2 says:

      In the US it’s common to have married bridesmaids. Most brides choose their sisters and friends, and their marital status isn’t a factor.
      That’s interesting it’s usually unmarried women- where do you live, Neffie?

      • Neffie says:

        I live in East Africa-Tanzania. The Matron of Honour must be married so she can give you spiritual and marital guidance.

    • swack says:

      That is interesting that the bridesmaids are only single in your country. I love learning new things and traditions!!!

      • Neffie says:

        Not without saying everyone follows this,some will toss their married sister or cousins in there if they are very close,but this is how it should be.

    • Hatetheletterak says:

      Yes, traditionally in the U.S. bridesmaids are single and the Maid of Honor is the single BFF or Matron of honor is the married BFF.

  12. Meggin says:

    If this is true (and I kind of hope it is lol) I don’t blame Beyonce. Beyonce is all about cherishing her privacy… Kim is the opposite. I can see how Beyonce wouldn’t like Kim at all.

    • Delorb says:

      So true. She never said a word about being with Jay-Z, getting married to Jay-Z nor does she go on and on about her baby. Why would a person like that willingly enter what will be a media circus?

      • pk says:

        I agree with you both. Beyonce knows that Kim will exploit her for attention and status for herself In the past, Kim tweeted and instagrammed pics of the two of them at Jay and Kanye’s concert, Kim backstage at the Beyonce concert, and about their visit and presents for North etc.

    • littlestar says:

      Beyoncé USED to be all about cherishing her privacy. But not anymore. Have you seen her picture blog? She is all about using her private life to promote herself now. She just doesn’t want to associate herself with someone who is considered “trash” in the celebrity world.

      • idk says:

        I think she realized she had to “get with the times” and that’s when she started her tumblr and let her fans in (also the bio movie she put out). She did what the fans wanted, she basically caved in to their demands because she needs record sales. It worked too !

    • Viv says:

      While that privacy thing rings true I just had to laugh out loud. Bey does take a whole lotta clothes off -on the regular- to be talking about protecting her privacy. I have a young pre-teen daughter and when her Grandma asked whether Beyonce was a stripper like Dita von Teese, since she wears so little most of the time, my daughter said: “Yeah, kinda, Granny, I don’t know why she does that either, she can sing, so I just don’t know. ” Role model ?

      • Jaana says:

        Beyonce is only semi dressed on stage or in a music video. Everywhere else she has a lot of clothes on.

      • a€s says:

        So just because she is comfortable showing off her body, she therefore forfeits all rights to privacy in other aspects of her life? I wasn’t aware that privacy was all encompassing and if I reveal one “secret” I’m required to reveal them all. And really, not much of a secret – she has a body. Everyone does. Big whoop. Is that how entitled people are nowadays? You do realize that she’s a performer/entertainer and what she does is considered a part of her job, right? And you do realize men have been wearing far less than women have throughout music history – barechested and leather pants have always been synonymous with the “Rock God”. Don’t hear anyone ever bitching about what Robert Plant, David Bowie, and Freddie Mercury used to wear on stage, or any modern day male entertainers. There are some male leads who perform nude for crying out loud, something a woman would never be able to get away with unscathed. What a ridiculous and ignorant thing to say.

      • Leila in wunderland says:

        So whether or not a person is a ‘role model’ is based on whether or not they are a modestly dressed woman? How shallow and sexist. Way to further the Madonna/whore dichotomy and further the message that female worth lies in chastity. That’s being a real ‘good role model’.

        Clothing is a matter of personal choice, and every individual has the right to do whatever they please with their physical appearance without their rights to privacy being violated, or any other rights that they have as a human being.

  13. truthful says:

    J has distanced his self from Ye w/his rants and arguments of him being a “genius” a fashion GOD–better than Zappos (LOL) and complaining that fashion house heads will not even meet w/him.

    they MAY attend, that’s a big may

    they are not as close as they used to be, I see them learning of the date and taking a rocket to the moon so they won’t have to attend heehee

    if the wedding happens

  14. Grant says:

    HAHAHA, “runs off with Ricardo” … That made me LAWL!

  15. swack says:

    I think Beyoncé tolerates Kim because Kanye and JayZ are friends. Next, Kim, get a clue, third wedding you only need 2 witnesses and a judge. The big wedding thing – should not be happening.

  16. Honeybea says:

    I don’t really believe this story. unless Kim really is completely delusional, this would never happen. I think Kim called to ask her to perform at the wedding. which is equally dumb and delusional but more of a possibility! wouldn’t that be something…

  17. Evi says:

    Beyonce and Kim have one thing in common, narcissism, but no way would she be a bridesmaid to Kim.

  18. Nicolette says:

    Beyonce comes across like she thinks everyone is beneath her. She could never even be at that wedding let alone be part of it. Imagine two narcissists such as Kim and Beyonce vying for attention. The drama!

    • Kate says:

      Nicolette, I’ve met Beyonce several times (during the Destiny Child and solo projects) and have had a friend who has dealings with her management team. She’s a very humble person. You’re not going to have a deep conversation with her but she’s still nice.

  19. Crack Fox says:

    Kim has four sisters and isn’t Brittny Gastineau her bestie? How many more bridesmaids for this doomed marriage (I think Kim will end it) does she need?

  20. GIRLFACE says:

    You make me wanna throw my pager out the window, Tell MCI to cut the phone pole, Break my lease so I can move cuz you a bug-a-boo, a bug-a-boo, You make me wanna put my numba on tha call block, Have AOL make my e-mail stop ‘cuz…

  21. mar says:

    since when does a bride ask someone to be in the bridal party that they are barely friends with? Kayne picks men close to him, and Kim picks girls close to her, so Bey should NOT even be on her list!

  22. The Original Mia says:

    Why in the world would she ask Beyonce, when she has 4 sisters, best friends? The only reason to ask Bey is because she wants Bey/Jay’s stamp of approval that she & Kanye are their successors. That isn’t going to happen no matter how materialistic and ridiculous she & Kanye are.

  23. MrSpiderman says:

    I can’t see how Beyoncé is one bit better than Kim. She put her pants on the same way Kim does. The only difference may be that the stick up Beyoncé’s arse is bigger…. If she thinks any differently–she’s never read a meaningful book.

  24. bns says:

    I honestly don’t think Beyonce and Jay Z are as close to Kanye and Kim as the media would like to think. I don’t believe this story. She may have invited her, but I don’t think she asked her to be a bridesmaid.

    • MeeNdeshi says:

      True. Media for money.
      They have been on Kim amd Beyonce’s neck since Kanye started dating Kim.

  25. Sumodo1 says:

    Beyonce is not that smart. Her letter to Michelle Obama (which I saw online) was scrawled like a 6th grader would do. Kim has no education. If Beyonce couldn’t sing and dance, phhtt! Both have horrible family drama. I’ll bet PMK demands updates regularly from Kim on whether Beyonce is going to be a bridesmaid, and Kanye has decreed from his mountain that it shall be so.

  26. HK9 says:

    OK, we saw what Kim wore to the Met Ball and you want that bitch to choose a bridesmaids dress?? Jesus take the wheel~nothing good will come of that. Run Bey Bey, RUN.

  27. Mauibound says:

    Considering she’s on her 3rd marriage, isn’t having a big formal wedding kind of tacky?

  28. Jayna says:

    She’s not close to Kim. If Kim asked her, that’s just a fame-ho move. You ask your closest friends and relatives to be your bridesmaids and matron of honor. I have a lot of respect for Bey to turn her down recognizing the brown-nosing that Kim was doing, having Queen Bey as her bridesmaid. Fame Hos never change, do they? Her last wedding wasn’t about the marriage, just the show, and asking Bey proves Kim is still the same ol Kim.

  29. Chrissy says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Beyonce makes excuses and doesn’t attend at all. She’s not going to give Kim an inch. She’ll make sure she’s working. IMO, the ultimate tacky is a big, splashy THIRD wedding – but look who we’re talking about. It doesn’t matter IF the wedding happens, the marriage will FAIL and Kanye will foot the bill. What a fool!!!!!

  30. RHONYC says:

    LMAO @ the ‘2 the left’ pose. 😆

  31. Dommy Dearest says:

    Why doesn’t she just pick from the people that came to her baby shower? At least they’ll for sure show up for the wedding.

  32. jessile says:

    This woman only wants an A listers at her wedding for connections and to get into Hollywood or the fashion industry probably. Kim is not apart of the music or acting or fashion industry but she seems to want to be apart of them. She will never be on the A list. Never ever.
    Kanye is no longer an A lister , otherwise she would have benfitted from his connections in some way. Look at Amber heard, she was a no-name actress until she got with Johnny Depp, now she is in big movies and get all this fame because of him. Natalie Portmans husband isn’t even a celeb yet he still got endorsements and career opperunties that would have not happened without his wife. Jennifer Anisiston’s fiancee Justin Theroux probably would not be this famous or would have gotten roles in movies/tv shows without her. If Kanye truley was A list, then she would have landed actaul endorsements from brands and would have gotten more offers like being a movie or a tv show then doing a some faling crappy tv show then. She isn’t more famous or any richer then she was before Kanye.

  33. Goofpuff says:

    All I can say is holy crap she is waaaaaaay lighter than I remember her from her destiny child days. I think she’s much more beautiful with her original skin color instead of this super bleached hair and skin look. I think it’s sad when women feel like they have to do this to their skin. she was already light because her heritage is mixed but this is ridiculous and kind of sad that no matter how much power and money you have you still have to do this. coming from the Asian culture I see this alot, and its sad.

    • Jaana says:

      The woman is not bleaching she is always inside and doesn’t go in the sun much. I know you want her to hate herself and her culture but she just isn’t bleaching. Sorry to burst your bubble. Wanna see someone who is bleaching? Check Nicki Minaj.

    • Snarkweek says:


    • a€s says:

      She always has been light. The only time I can think of where her skin is quite dark, is for the Dangerously in Love album cover/inlay. My skin is a lot like hers. If I don’t go out in the sun, it fades to alabaster but once summer comes around, I get about as dark as she does in that aforementioned album shoot.

    • Leila in wunderland says:

      To me her skin usually looks the same as it did when she was a kid, except for in glossy airbrushed pics and pics where there’s a lot of lighting.

  34. Kosmos says:

    Oh, GAWD…..please please do not give KK any more power. I can’t wait for her to go away…..I didn’t choose to see her face everyday somewhere, and I don’t want to see it now. Her “brand” is not important or wanted by ME…..I hate her brand. Beyonce can help by not supporting the KK Clan……

  35. Lou says:

    Whenever you think Beyonce’s pulling ego, just remember that she was in Austin Powers in Goldmember.

  36. Zuzu says:

    Did Beyonce even have a big wedding? I can’t remember. If she didn’t, even though she’s annoying, I’ll at least give her points for that.

    KK has already been to this rodeo. Just have a private or small ceremony and do SOMETHING decent once in your famewhore life.

    • idk says:

      Beyonce had a small and very private wedding in New York back in 2008. No one saw pics of her in her wedding gown until years later when she released some footage in a video.

  37. ihatekim says:

    Kim should get a life, seriously

    • KlassofdAsxsss says:

      OMG GIMME A BREAK! everyone has weddings everyday why make a big deal over her stupid wedding . Just stop idk why people care and why Beyoncé is complaining about get a grib ugh

  38. Madriani's Girl says:

    “…This is a woman who doesn’t care how close a friend you are, all she cares about are big names.”

    Who? Kim or Bey?

  39. MeeNdeshi says:

    Agg this can be true and there is a chance for it to be totally lies. ever since Kanye started dating Kim media started to speculate that Kim and Beyonce will be BFF’s. The kardashian never seen them with bridesmaids. only sisters. it’s media for money.

  40. Dorothy says:

    She always can NOT STAND Gwyneth. She caught on to her phony cruel PR BS fast! Likes Chris and told him point blank to get kids and leave her.
