Looks like Beyoncé and JAY-Z are telling Kanye West “boy, bye” once and for all! According to a source close to the superstars and new parents of twins, they are going so far as to distance themselves from people who work with their friends-turned-enemies Kim Kardashian and her husband. The source exclusively tells In Touch, “They’re telling friends they won’t work with anyone who’s worked with Kim and Kanye. And they’re threatening to expose each other’s secrets. This feud could bring down one or both couples.”
According to an insider close to Kim and Kanye, the reality star, 36, used to be “desperate” for Beyoncé’s friendship — but once Hov disssed Ye on one of his tracks for his new album, 4:44 (in the song “Kill Jay-Z,” the rapper makes reference to the father-of-two being “insane”), the reality star gave up on that dream. The insider says, “[Kim]’s furious — she wants revenge. Kim says this is war.”
Kanye took action against his best friend too — in the form of a business dispute; after the track was released, he very quietly pulled his music off Tidal, JAY-Z’s streaming service — and now Jay wants to fight back legally, a source alleges. The source explains, “Now Jay is threatening to sue over breach of contract and Kanye’s ready to sue back.”
JAY-Z and Kanye’s friendship has been rocky since the Carters were infamously no-shows at Ye’s 2014 wedding to Kim Kardashian. Though they seemed to maintain some sort of friendship together — appearing at many of the same events, several of which were for Tidal — things reportedly came to blows when Kanye dissed Beyoncé during one of his Saint Pablo Tour stops. It’s worth noting, however, that days after the Bey-themed rant, Kanye was checked into a hospital where he was reportedly treated for psychosis.
