During his recent show in Sacramento, Kanye West went on a rant saying Beyoncé refused to perform at the 2016 VMAs unless “Formation” won Video of the Year. This came a month after Kanye accused Jay and Bey of not calling him after Kim’s robbery. He also said that North West and Blue Ivy don’t play together.
Now Beyoncé is nominated for nine Grammy Awards, and Kanye is up for eight. It’s unclear whether Kanye will attend the 2017 show given his fragile state. But, if he does, that will likely be the first time the couples are in the same room since the concert rants.
This isn’t the first time the couples have faced tension. They first sparked feud rumors when Bey and Jay skipped Kim and Kanye’s wedding back in 2014. But sources that they were trying to avoid Rachel Roy after Jay Z and Solange Knowles’ elevator fight.
The feud rumors didn’t end there. Kim was later accused of mocking Solange Knowles' wedding photos on Instagram. Beyoncé then wore a dress by Kim's favorite designer, Riccardo Tisci. Kim also posted racy photos on Instagram to distract from Beyoncé's big Lemonade reveal.
Beyoncé and Jay Z even faced reports that they skipped out on a dinner party Kim and Kanye threw for them. But Kim’s rep denied those rumors.
Still, there has been speculation that Kim and Beyoncé aren’t friends at all. “Beyoncé has never genuinely liked Kim,” a source told Page Six. “She’s mostly tolerated her because of their husbands’ friendship and [their] mutual friends, like Jennifer Lopez. She is always a little icy to Kim. The last time they hung out, the minute Beyoncé could leave the conversation, she did. They always have lots of awkward pauses.”
