Singer Beyonce reportedly kept her distance from reality star Kim Kardashian at the recent Made in America Festival this weekend, fueling on going rumors that Knowles wants nothing to do with the socialite.
While the women’s partners — rappers Jay-Z and Kanye West — performed together on stage, Beyonce pretty much kept her distance from Kardashian until after the concert was over, only talking to her briefly backstage in a situation that had to be awkward if any of the recent storylines are true.
A source at the music festival told the New York Daily News:
“Kim and Beyonce barely spoke to each other. They were on opposite sides of the stage. Beyonce didn’t even acknowledge [Kardashian] was there until the concert was almost over. The situation was made more awkward by the fact that Kaye West and Jay-Z are the best of friends.”
The source added:
“Eventually, the women made small talk in the dressing room, but you could tell Kim was uncomfortable.”
“She clung onto Kanye the entire time and didn’t say much. Kim was talking to Jonathan [Cheban], and Kanye was talking to Jay-Z and Beyoncé.”
According to Hollywoodlife, rumors of a frosty relationship between Knowles and Kim K. surfaced after the BET Awards earlier this year. For the majority of the event, Beyonce reportedly ignored Kardashian despite being seat two seats away from her the entire evening.
ShowBizSpy adds Kardashian may have turned off Beyonce when she splurged on a $5000 diamond-studded baby bracelet for the singer’s 6-month-old Blue Ivy and presumptuously personalized the trinket with the engraving “Love Auntie Kim.”
“She believes Kim is trying to buy her friendship through her daughter, and she’s cooling to their friendship,” a source told ShowBizSpy. “Right now, Beyonce is on her guard. She’s keeping her distance until she feels more trusting of Kim.”
