Jay Z: Why He Won’t Be Best Man At Kanye West’s Wedding

Wed, April 9, 2014 3:51pm EST by 27 Comments

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are gearing up to say their ‘I do’s’ in just a few weeks in Paris, but one important guest will be noticeably absent — Kanye’s BFF Jay Z! Jay has turned down Kanye’s invite to be the best man at his wedding — and the reason may surprise you!

Kanye West, 36, and Kim Kardashian‘s wedding day is almost here, and while the happy couple can’t wait to become husband and wife, Kanye is pretty disappointed that his close friend Jay Z won’t be in attendance. Jay Z reportedly turned down Kanye’s best man proposal because he doesn’t want to be “associated” with Keeping Up with the Kardashians!

Jay Z As Best Man At Kanye West’s Wedding? — Why He Turned Down Invitation

The two rappers collaborated on their hit song , ”N—-s in Paris”, but Jay, 44, will not be in the duo’s favorite city for Kanye’s big day, an insider tells Life & Style.

“Of course, Kanye asked Jay to be his best man at the wedding. But Jay politely declined the request,” the insider reveals. “Jay just didn’t want to be associated with the Kardashian reality show. Kanye told Jay he understands why he would decline, but he’s still very hurt.”

We feel for Kanye, but we completely understand Jay Z’s reason for not wanting to be the rapper’s best man. Jay and wife Beyonce are notoriously private so we are not shocked that they do not want to be around all of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians cameras that are sure to be in attendance for the occasion.

Jay Z Will Not Be Kanye West’s Best Man

That said, we totally get why Kanye is disappointed that his best friend won’t be standing by his side on one of the biggest days of his life.

It would have been nice to see these two united since they have been friends for so long, but now we are left to wonder — who will serve as Kanye’s best man?

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Jay Z be Kanye’s best man? Why do you think Jay declined? Let us know.

First off jayz stay in front of a camera hes a damn celebrity so theres no reason y he shouldnt stand beside his friend that’s a good thing for somebody to want u to be their best man thst mean they think highly of u had he not ever been in front of cameras i could understand that yes everybody have a right to do what they feel but in my opinion hes wrong for not being there when it matters

Sweetie, Ye look at Jay as an attention magnet just like Kim is an object to him.

If you understand so much, then you would know that, JAY CAN DO WHATEVER HE WANTS TO DO AND IT WILL BE OKAY. IT’S HIS DECISION TO DO IT OT NOT! NOT KANYE OR ANYONE ELSES, NOT EVEN YOU.

You Kartrashian workers on this site are so funny! LOL!!!!!

I understand Kanye West: he’s hurt because his best friend won’t be his best man on his wedding, but I also understand Jay Z: of course he wants to be Kanye’s best man, but if I was on his place, I wouldn’t also want to appear on KUWTK.I doesn’t make sense Kanye choose another friend to be his best man… In my oppinion, this wedding wouldn’t even happen, but if that is really meant to be, then it wouldn’t show on KUWTK… This is just a waste of time and life!
