Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s wedding is scheduled for May and seems to have hit a snag. Kanye reportedly wanted his good friend Jay Z to be his best man but Jay has backed out because of Kim’s reality show.
The Daily Star reports:
“Jay is Kanye’s closest friend so he wants him to be best man.
“Jay agreed initially but had one condition – under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife Beyoncé or daughter Blue Ivy during the ceremony.”
“The thought of popping up in KUWTK mortifies Beyoncé.
“She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion.”
Kim is unlikely to pass up the potential millions to televise the wedding so don’t look for Jay as the best man.

I remember thinking, ‘Damn, these girls are fly.’ I just thought it was the ultimate sexy show. I was like, ‘I wish I was up there, I wish I could perform that for my man.’ So that’s what I did for the video.”
