Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting married on May 24, and Beyonce is reportedly slated to attend — but only because Jay Z will be Kanye’s best man!

Details of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s May 24 wedding have been incredibly scarce. It’s long been speculated whether or not Jay Z and Beyonce would attend the wedding, but a new report is claiming that they will be attending — however, Jay Z is attending because he’s best man to Kanye, and Beyonce is only going because Jay is. Interesting! Read on for all the details!

Jay Z To Be Kanye West’s Best Man

“Beyonce had to think about it at the last minute,” a source close to the Knowles-Carter family revealed to MailOnline. “She didn’t really want to go, but I think Jay Z’s the best man, so he’s kind of making her go.”

Reportedly, the reason why Bey and Jay have reconsidered attending Kimye’s enormous European wedding extravaganza is because they weren’t interested in being filmed by E! cameras; however, now that cameras have been banned from the premises, Jay is happy to attend… and Beyonce will begrudgingly attend, according to MailOnline.

Their source also confirmed that there were just 150 guests invited to the wedding.

It feels kind of strange that Beyonce is reportedly only going to the wedding because hubby Jay Z wants her to, but then again, she and Kim have never been as close as Kanye and Jay Z — after all, Jay and ‘Ye’s history is long. 

It also would make sense that Beyonce would be interested in lying a little low after the whole Solangeattacking-Jay-Z-in-an-elevator saga — you know, that thing that even your great-great-great-grandmother heard about.
