A friendship seemed unlikely to blossom between Beyonce, a world renowned artist known for her killer performances and astounding vocals, and Kim Kardashian, a reality star.
The ladies, however, proved that friendship could be found in the most unlikely of places. The two took to Birmingham, where Jay-Z and Kanye West, were performing for their Watch the Throne UK tour.
Beyonce and Kardashian were photographed cheering on their respective significant others from the VIP section on Friday night, according to MTV News. It had been rumored that Beyonce did not approve of West dating the E! reality starlet, but based on the photographs from the weekend's show, the two seemed to have hit it off well.
Beyonce opted for a concert-appropriate white T-shirt and leather pants, while Kardashian went with a look better suited for a dinner party -- a tight black dress and slicked-back hair.
Fellow concertgoers snapped photos of the duo smiling and dancing as Jay-Z and West performed. The photos of Beyonce and Kardashian quickly spread on Twitter. But not everyone believed the hype.

The lucky girl who tweeted the first photo of the two was slammed by Beyonce fans on twitter for posting what they thought was a photoshopped photo, reported the gossip blog, Necole B-tchie. They said their Queen would never ... Beyhive is definitely HEATED.
What was behind the beef?
The girls have never really seen eye-to-eye, a source told The Sun. It's a shame because Jay-Z and Kanye are so close. Beyonce has always viewed Kim as a reality TV star who's not earned her fortune with a specific talent.
The two reportedly went to dinner together before Jay-Z and West's show at the LG Arena.
Kanye arranged a dinner in the hotel suite for the girls to clear the air, the source told The Sun. He's hoping that now they're pals it will lead to further get-togethers away from the tour. Beyonce has now welcomed Kim into the clan.
On Saturday night, Beyonce attended Jay-Z's performance for Radio 1's Hackney Weekend at the Hackney Marshes. She was not afraid to get down and dirty in the trenches to support her man, who performed with Rihanna, M.I.A. and West during the festival.
Beyonce rocked along to the music, looking adorable in a black hoodie, white shirt, dark pants and Hunter rain boots.
