Jay and Bey are RSVPing ‘yes’ to Kimye’s wedding! The couple will be attending Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s highly anticipated Parisian nuptials on May 24 — if only to get away from all the drama surrounding Solange Knowles’ outrageous elevator attack, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Beyonce and Jay Z are still reeling after a shocking moment from their well-protected private life was leaked to the press on May 12. But the hip hop power couple are hoping to change the conversation from Solange Knowles‘ elevator smackdown to Kimye’s wedding extravaganza! Kanye West and Kim Kardashian must be thrilled to finally know that their most-wanted wedding guests will be there front and center on their special day!
Beyonce At Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Wedding: She’s Escaping Solange Drama
After all the media buzz about the viral video of Solange attacking her brother-in-law, Jay Z, in an elevator at NYC’s Standard Hotel following a Met Ball after-party on May 5, we think it’s safe to say that Bey and Jay could use a vacation. And what perfect timing, with Kim and Kanye’s wedding in Paris coming up on May 24!
“B is going to Kim’s wedding,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Especially now, to change the attention from the fight to her presence at the wedding, since there have been so many reports speculating that she wouldn’t show.”
“Being at Kim’s wedding is less scandalous for her and Jay in comparison to the elevator situation,” the source adds. “They need/want something else for people to talk about.”
We don’t blame them for needing an escape — this whole elevator fight has been quite an ordeal!
Jay Z To Be Kanye West’s Best Man In Kim Kardashian Wedding
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Jay Z reportedly said “I do” to Kanye’s best man offer by sending Yeezy a touching and lavish gift. “The best news came when Jay sent a gift to Kanye with an inscription referring to Jay Z as the rapper’s ‘Best Man,'” a source told Radar Online. “The gift was a gold-plated, diamond-encrusted flask, delivered with a $10,000 bottle of scotch, for Kanye to have for his wedding day.”
And of course Kanye was ecstatic over Jay’s over the top RSVP!
“Kanye was jumping up and down, he was so excited,” the source revealed. “He was running around Kris [Jenner‘s] house to find Kim saying, ‘Baby, look! Look! Jay and B are coming!'”
Jay Z and Beyonce were initially worried about attending Kimye’s nuptials because E! had been planning to film the entire affair for a TV special. But Kim and Kanye have renegotiated with the network to ensure that the cameras will be rolling ONLY before and after the ceremony, and not during, a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
So what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited that Beyonce and Jay Z will be at Kimye’s wedding? Do you think it will make the world forget about Solange and Jay’s fight video? Let us know your thoughts!
