“Drunk in Love” singer Beyoncé isn’t too shy about her distaste for “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kim Kardashian. Despite Beyoncé's husband, “Holy Grail” rapper Jay Z, and possible 2020 presidential candidate Kanye West being friends, she and West's wife apparently never developed a close bond. Now, it seems there a reason they never connected. Jay Z supposedly had a fling with Kardashian before he married, the cover of Life & Style’s Sept. 7 issue claims, as noted by the blog Media Take Out.

The cover of the new issue says Khloé Kardashian’s ex-husband Lamar Odom and Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Scott Disick gave a tell-all interview. In large print the magazine cover reads, “Cheating, Cocaine & Sex Tapes.” In bullets below the sensational headlines it adds: “Khloé & Kourtney’s exes get revenge"; "Kim and Jay Z! (What Kanye doesn’t know)"; and "How family fakes ‘news’ to make money.”

The rumor that Kardashian, 34, hooked up with Jay Z isn’t the only drama she faced. She accused her husband of cheating on her, the Sept. 14 issue of In Touch Weekly claimed. “She found messages on [his phone] from one of his exes,” an insider told In Touch, according to Hollywood Life.

She went “ballistic” and thought he had an affair. But West said “his ex had simply asked for help with a project she was working on.” Kardashian, however, thought they were “bordering on flirtatious.”

It hasn’t been an easy week for the reality star, who was criticized for her outfit at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles Sunday. Cruel memes of her dress went viral the moment she stepped on the red carpet, with one of them comparing her to the Danny DeVito rendition of Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot from the 1992 film “Batman Returns.”
