Kanye West is out of the squad! He dissed Jay Z and ignited a feud on Oct. 19, and he’s facing the consequences — a new report says that now, Jay wants nothing more to do with Ye. Basically, Jay is exiling Kanye from his ‘immediate circle’!
Kanye West, 39, and Jay Z, 45, are never, ever getting back together! Jay is cutting off Ye, as a source tells Page Six on Oct. 20. “The reality is that Jay doesn’t want that much to do with [Kanye],” the insider reveals. “He likes his own space and is private. They’re very much not the same person. Jay’s immediate circle is very insular, and Kanye is just a guy who always wants something in the spotlight.” Yikes!
But wait, there’s more. Jay Z only “tolerated” Kanye for the making of their hit 2011 record Watch the Throne, the source adds. “There was so much money to be made. Jay was like, ‘I’m gonna knock this out. We’re going to do a tour to bring in millions of dollars. I can tolerate that’,” the insider reveals. Ouch.
On the other hand, a Kanye insider tells the publication that his epic Seattle rant was all in good fun. “It didn’t seem like Kanye was dissing Jay at all. They are brothers, closer than friends,” the insider claims. “Jay appreciates Kanye’s genius, understands his passions and eccentricities and is accepting of it all.”
As for the Jay insider’s reaction to this? “That’s just perception!”
We previously told you that Kanye blasted Jay with a series of insults about his Tidal streaming service, and how Jay and Beyonce weren’t there for Kim Kardashian after her robbery. It’s almost too much!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Jay will end his friendship with Kanye over this feud — or will they make it up somehow?
