Music’s power couple might have skipped the Kardashian/West wedding to avoid Rachel Roy.
Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles were noticeably absent from the much-talked-about nuptials of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and new reports are saying the no-show was related to the Met Gala smackdown of the century.
Rumors are flying that designer, Rachel Roy, provoked Solange Knowles at the Met Ball, and her words are what caused Solange to fly off the handle and attack Jay Z in an elevator after the fancy affair. Some reports claim that Jay Z was flirting with Roy, causing Solange to fume; while others are saying that Roy and Solange had a fight of their own and Solange felt that her brother-in-law should have come to her defense.
Roy was in attendance at the lavish Kimye European wedding, and some are drawing the conclusion that she was the very reason Bey and J were not there.
Word first came down in April that the songstress and her rapping husband would not head overseas to watch their friends walk down the aisle when The Sun reported that the two did not want to appear on camera for Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The Met Gala was held on May 5, so the new Roy speculation could be just that: speculation.
Whatever the reason for their non-attendance, the Jay Z/Beyoncé absence had to sting a bit for Kim K and West. The “Drunk in Love” singers were just two names on a list of close friends and family members who turned their noses up at the wedding. Kim’s own brother, Rob Kardashian, flew out the night before the ceremony and her stepbrother, Brody Jenner, didn’t come because he couldn’t bring his girlfriend. Stepfather Bruce Jenner was also reported to be grumpy at the reception and ducked out early.
