Kanye West is preparing to walk down the aisle with fiancé Kim Kardashian later this year. However, the rapper is apparently having some trouble finding a best man.
Although Jay Z reportedly agree to help out Kanye during that very special day, apparently they couldn’t reach an agreement about the sort of exposure Beyoncé and Blue Ivy might receive as a result. Since nobody in their right mind wants to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, West is reportedly without a best man for the moment.
Do we know all this for a fact? Of course not. It’s highly doubtful that Kanye West would ever run to the tabloids with this sort of story. As such, we have to rely on information from anonymous sources and shady industry insiders.
Kanye’s struggle to find a best man arrived courtesy of the folks over at the Daily Star. According to the outlet, Jay Z and his family weren’t too keen on possibly appearing on the Kardashians’ reality TV show. This reportedly prompted the rapper to change his mind.
“Jay is Kanye’s closest friend so he wants him to be best man. Jay agreed initially but had one condition — under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife, Beyoncé or daughter Blue Ivy during the ceremony,” the insider dished.
The source added, “The thought of popping up in ‘KUWTK’ mortifies Beyoncé. She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion.”
Of course, Kanye West still has plenty of time to find someone to serve as his best man during the wedding. The Inquisitr previously reported that the rapper and Kim Kardashian will likely tie the knot in France on May 24. The couple wants to fly in their friends and family several days before the big event.
While Kim is reportedly interested in keeping the ceremony small and intimate, sources suggest that Kanye wants something big, extravagant, and insanely memorable. In fact, some insiders believe he’s essentially taken over the planning process.
An anonymous source recently told the world:
“Kanye is obsessed with creating moments, like he did with the baseball-stadium engagement. Now he’s working on all these huge surprises for the wedding, but as a result she has virtually no idea what is going to happen at her own wedding. She’s been kept in the dark about a lot of the details, and that doesn’t make her happy.”
Do you believe the rumors that Jay Z turned down a chance to serve as Kanye West’s best man during the upcoming wedding?
