Why Did Jay Z and Beyonce Skip Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Wedding?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West officially tied the knot yesterday after a grand wedding weekend that started in France and ended in Italy. And while many prominent figures from entertainment and fashion attended the affair, there were two people noticeably missing from the ceremonies: Jay Z and Beyonce

On Friday night at the rehearsal dinner at the Palace of Versailles, Jay Z and Beyonce were no shows, which initially sparked discussion that the power couple may not attend the wedding in Italy. Yesterday, Us Weekly confirmed that Jay Z and Beyonce did not go to Italy and instead, opted to spend Memorial Day weekend at the Hamptons.

So why did Jay Z miss his ‘Watch the Throne’ partner’s wedding?

Speculation is that they were avoiding fashion designer Rachel Roy, who did attend Kim and Kanye’s festivities.

On May 12, surveillance video from an elevator at The Standard Hotel in New York City was leaked showing Beyonce’s sister, Solange, attacking Jay Z while Beyonce stood by. The three had been attending a party after the MET Gala. And while the family has since put the incident behind them, that hasn’t stopped the trades from speculating as to why Solange attacked her sister’s husband.

Us Weekly reported from a “well-placed source” at the party that Solange went into a rage after she thought Jay Z was flirting with Roy in front of Beyonce, claiming she yelled, “How could you treat my sister like that?”

Roy does have a connection with Jay Z: Her ex-husband, Damon Dash, was once Jay Z’s manager and business partner at Roc-a-Fella Records.

In any case, while she wasn’t in Italy to congratulate Kim and Kanye in person, Beyonce still sent her support by posting on her Instagram account a picture of Kim, Kanye and baby North West from their issue of Vogue with the caption: “Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family.”
